Snowboarding's classic just keeps getting better.
The Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard puts a modern twist on the original Custom board. Flying V gives you the best of both rocker and camber for freedom and fun everywhere on the hill. There's a smattering of tech, like Frostbite edges, Squeezebox, and The Channel mounting system to squeeze out every last bit of performance. And with its team-tested heritage, you already know the Custom is up to whatever you throw at it.
The V Rocker profile puts rocker between your feet for deep snow float, and mates it to camber under the bindings for stomped landings and locked in carves. The edge hold gets a boost from Frostbite edges, which places bumps in the sidecut underneath your feet, to give you even more grip. It has a mild 10mm of stance setback, for directional stability, but the twin flex means that your switch stance won't stuffer a bit.
The lightweight Super Fly II core keeps the overall weight down to help with technical tricks. The weight is further reduced through Pro-Tip construction in the tip and tail, which knock the swing weight down for faster spins. The Squeezebox profile is thinner underneath the binding for unrestricted board feel and uninterrupted flex, and the Highlights High Voltage carbon stringers radiate out from the binding to give you more response without making the deck unnecessarily stiff. The Channel mounting system works in conjunction with EST bindings to give you unlimited setup options and a natural flex, instead of dead spots under the bindings. Round it out with a super-fast, wax absorbent WFO sintered base, and you'll be hauling all over the hill.

hi i want to know that aconcejan me! Currently I have a table 1.56 cm and boots 10. I high I measure 1.74 cm and my weight is 160 lbs. I am from Argentina, Buenos Aires!

I'm 5'10" 175 lbs size 11 boots. Debating between the 158 and 160. I've always had camber boards in the past and have had my bindings set back. I've also always had "wide" boards. Looking to get a regular width board, but am not sure if the158 is too small. I mostly ride groomers fast, unless of course there is powder.
This board says directional and it also...
This board says directional and it also says twin, I'm little confused as to which one it is; is it directional twin?
This will be the first board I buy and was kind of looking for a twin, will I notice that much, even when changing directions.
So a twin is a reference to the shape, in this case the shape is the same on nose and tail. In this case the "directional" is a reference to the set back of the binding inserts. a set back stance will allow you to move your bindings back for riding powder. you can most likely still mount your bindings dead centered depending on your stance width.
With this board feel different when your going backwards? no, it will feel like you're going backwards though.
For a great Twin rockered board, thats easy to ride, check out the Lib Tech Skate banana. super fun!
Hello, I currently ride a burton x8 155cm...
Hello, I currently ride a burton x8 155cm was looking for something a bit softer. I'm 5'8" and 152lbs and I went to the burton site and it suggested I get a 148cm. That seems a bit short and I'm worried I'll get a lot of chatter at higher speeds. I did want to get a shorter board to jib around more but worried it's too short. Would you also recommend a 148? I would say I'm an advanced rider.
You can typically go shorter on a board that is rockered underfoot because it will still float really well and provide stability, but will be easier to progress freestyle and park at a shorter length. I would probably to down to the 150cm if you're currently comfortable on a 155cm.
Hello- My name is David. I am 5' 11" 193...
Hello- My name is David. I am 5' 11" 193 lbs. My boot size is 11. I am an experienced rider that has taken a few years off Interested in the "Flying V". Currently riding the old "Canyon". I am told boards have advanced a ton and am looking for an easy riding fast all around board. I ride everything from The Poconos to Vermont to Utah. Main question I have is do I need a WIDE? 160CM OK? Any information is helpful.
You should be fine without a wide. Just make sure you get some boots with shrinkage tech. They fit like an 11 but are the size of a 10. At any rate I wear a size 11.5 and have no problems on a 25.4cm board. I wear Burton Imperial boots. You may also want to check out Rome boards, they tend to be more like mid-wides in the longer sizes and they make good stuff.
