BURTON Descendant Snowboard 2018
A soft and poppy deck that’s perfect for taking what you learn in the park to the entire mountain.
Dominate the park while getting maximum bang for your buck with the feature-packed Burton Descendant. True twin shaping gives it more freestyle punch than the Instigator, allowing you to ride in either direction with equal control. Softer than the Blunt, it also steps up stability and edge control with the catch-free, park-tuned feel of PurePop Camber. Squeezebox Low provides a softer flex that maintains snappiness and ollie power. The Channel® gives you ultimate control of your stance and the fastest setup possible in a system compatible with bindings from all major brands.
TERRAIN: Freestyle, All-Mountain
ABILITY LEVEL: Intermediate-Advanced
ROCKER TYPE: PurePop Camber – An advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision, camber speaks to the core values of board design. Offering a snappy suspension, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail.
FLEX RATING: Twin Flex – The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch.
Soft & Playful – At cruising speed, this snowboard is forgiving, playful, and great for progressing. Riders of all ability levels will appreciate the many easy-riding characteristics of a soft snowboard.
SHAPE: Twin – Perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it.
Pro-Tip™ – A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
BINDING COMPATABILITY: The Channel
CORE: Squeezebox Low – With an overall easier feel, Squeezebox Low brings high-end core profiling technology to the progressing rider. Stiffer zones just outside you feet create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail, while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. The end result is more control with less effort from the rider.
Dualzone™ EGD™ – The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core for consistent edge-hold and added strength.
FSC™ Certified Super Fly® 800G Core – Lightened up and loaded with pop, Burton's dual-species wood core utilizes dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance.
LAMINATES: Biax™ Fiberglass – Features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex for a forgiving, park-friendly feel.
BASE: Extruded Base – Speed, strength, and graphical pop in a base that requires little maintenance. Pass your friends without even waxing.
