The Burton Custom ICS Snowboard features The Channel, a spine down the center of the board that evenly distributes energy and works with both standard (Channel-compatible binding discs sold separately) and EST bindings. Mount bindings at any stance width or angle you’d like (we don’t recommend narrow and pigeon-toed, though). Then ride your mid-flex Custom down backcountry couloirs or in the park—whatever terrain you encounter, this board can handle it.
- The Channel focuses power through a central spine that evenly radiates energy through the board for enhanced rebound and snap
- Infinite Ride technology means that your board feels consistent from day one through day 201
- New Lightning Bolts (fiberglass fingers) radiate out from The Channel to quickly send input from your feet to the edge for superb response
- The Custom packs Burton�s new sintered N2O WFO base for a ridiculously fast ride
- Super Fly II core features a negative core profile (thinner sections between the bindings) for softer flex and torsion that excels anywhere on the mountain
- To reduce waste, Burton used some recycled metals and plastics to create this board
- Board colors may vary, and we have no control over which one you�ll get. But you�ll love it anyway, right? Right

I'm abt 160lbs, and 5'4, size 8.5 / 9 feet, should I go for the 154 or 156?
Depending on what you mainly ride. If you ride more park then definately go for the 154. If you're more of a all-mountain kinda person, then go for the 156 because it will give you a little bit more play in the board off of steeps and what-not

would this be a good childs freestyle board
how old is your child? This is a great freestyle board for anyone. It all depends on your child's ability and the size and of board you get. I'm 6' about 170 lbs, for the park I ride a 155cm.
If i am 5'2 120 lbs. and 10 boot what size...
If i am 5'2 120 lbs. and 10 boot what size freeride board should i ride?
Freeride specific? Then take a look at the Supermodel 155 or the Guru 156. You don't weight that much, but your feet are the biggest issue. If you run a smaller board you'll have to deal with toe and heel drag. But if you plan on only ridding powder, then the bigger board won't be a problem. Check those out. If you're not down with them, then the custom is a great all around deck.

Hey, i'm looking to buy this board, but i'm not sure if it will work with the conditions I live in. Since the area i live in doesn't get much fresh powder, would this board work with groomed hills?
Also I have Ride XS bindings, would the retro disks work with them? Thanks for the help!
Oh yeah. The custom rides everything very well, park, pow, groomers, everything.
The board will and does work in all conditions. Yes it will kill is on groomed hills. You will not be disappointed. This is one of the Best all mountain boards.
which board has a softer flex custom vrocker...
which board has a softer flex custom vrocker or regular custom? Other board suggestions are fine.
The flex rating for the custom is a 5, and the V-Rocker custom is a 4. Both decks are crazy fun. The custom is a great all around board. If you are looking to purchase one board. This is a wise choice.
although you probably won't be able to find it at this point in the season, the lib tech T Rice is a better board, it will outride the custom anywhere on the mountain. C2 BTX in the T rice is a much better rocker design than v rocker for an all mountain board... it is more stable and gives you more pop plus theres magnatraction which cuts through any snow like butter
ride whats left of the season on what you got and pick up a t rice next summer, you will be glad you did then after riding the t rice for a little while find somebody you know with a custom have them let you borrow it for a little bit and ride it, you will see how much better the t rice is after 1 run on the custom
one more thing that the t rice gives you is the freedom of using whatever bindings you want, and the best bindings out there are not made by burton. Union forces or any union binding are bombproof and lighter than anything else
these are strange bindings ive seen how...
these are strange bindings ive seen how they work and every thing but.... how to the binding pads look they specail ordered or what
What exactly do you mean? This board has an ICS channel and uses only EST bindings. The ICS/EST thing is by Burton and it gives great board feel and flex.
Yo, you can use any binding you choose on this board, it comes with special adapters you can use. You can put any binding on an ics channel, but the est bindings only work on the ics board...you get what i'm saying? IF you do get est bindings you'll be stoked, you can remove the footbed and ride exactly on the board! it's crazy and gives uncontrollable feel. IF you go with regular bindings you can use it on this board, and any other board

How is this the "free gift" considered free??? 1. the boards are supposed to come with these retro discs and 2. i just bought a burton board from this site and they came free with the board
You are correct. They come with the board. It still is free. It is not included in the price. Before the disks, the board cost the same.
I read that the large bindings won't work...
I read that the large bindings won't work with a 156cm board. Is that really true?
No it is not true. Where ever you read that, it is false. Any size binding (Burton) will work on this board.
How is this board for buttering?
How is this board for buttering?
How's the flex?
Feel is based on a variety of factors including the boards materials, shape, tip-to-tail flex, and torsion (aka edge-to-edge rigidity). This number is based on a scale from one to ten with one being softer and more relaxed and ten being most responsive.
The flex is awesome. Really easy to butter with. This is a great responsive board but soft enough to be playful.
This board is a great all around board. Its forgiving and lots of fun in the park! I am coming for a forum youngblood and I like the extra flex I have with the Custom..way more fun for buttering...The top sheet does scratch pretty easy as maxglade said before....
great bored but top sheet scratches and chips easily
Should i buy the regular camber custom or...
Should i buy the regular camber custom or the v rocker custom?? I have been riding for 2 years and want a lot of pop. Suggestions are fine.
I would go for the v rocker if you're into powder and park. That (in my opinion) is where most v rocker boards really excel. Both boards will give decent pop, but due to camber the regular custom will pop a bit more. Probably the regular camber, especially for high speed cruising with stability and pop (although I personally really like v rocker).
where can you custom your own snowboard?...
where can you custom your own snowboard? isn't there a website by burton or k2 that allows you to pick the board and design it? thanks
series13.com. I spent a grand on a Custom X Series 13, three years ago. Best board I've ever owned (currently riding a Vapor).
I'm a borderline beginner/intermediate...
I'm a borderline beginner/intermediate rider thats looking to buy a first board and I've narrowed it down to this board and three others. The other three are, a K2 Brigade, K2 Anagram, and a Burton Joystick. I basically like going all mountain doing groomed green and blue occasionally black runs and may soon start a bit of rails. Which board will be best for me if I'm 6'3, 210 pounds and about a 12.5 boot size? Thanks in advance.
And if there is any other board you want to recommend feel free to do so.
Also what about the V-Rocker version of this board? Which would be best and the thing I like doing best is carving at cruising and occasionally high speeds.
Well the Joystick is really sick. First its the only reverse camber board you have listed. Reverse camber will make learning easy. Plus reverse camber is great in the park for learning trick like spins or getting on boxes and rails. Reverse camber is great in powder so it's kind of a win win deal. Basically, this board will help cradle you through the learning process, then it can help guide you as an intermediate rider and beyond.
Joystick or Custom V would knock your socks off!
Thanks guys and Ryan how are they for people my skill level? And Shannon would the reverse camber be better for me even though I don't do park or rails? If reverse camber is good Im looking to go with the Joystick or the Custom V Rocker.
How about the Burton boards compared to the two K2 boards I mentioned? They say the reduced camber on the Anagram and Brigade helps them be catch-free for beginners/intermediate riders.
What are the differences between Custom...
What are the differences between Custom ICS and Custom X?
Will you please explain and list the differences between the two, and the bindings that go well with each?
I consider myself an intermediate, I can carve down blue and black with ease, and sometimes double diamond black trails. I do some moguls. I will like to learn to do jumps, cliffs, pipe and parks.

if i order the 154cm is the one in the picture the color that im gonna get or is it chosen at random?
The color scheme is random per the description... they have no control over what color you get.
i have a 154 and its that exact color so you will
i think think the color scheme will be the same as in the picture, but the order of the colors will probably be different.
Great board, Great response, with est bindings makes your board feel apart of you,
Thinking about buying this board, BUY IT!
Will this be good for a beginner?
