The legendary all-mountain marauder, custom-tuned for plus-size boots.
The Burton Custom snowboard pretty much created the 'all-mountain freestyle' category over a decade ago, and the wide version still holds true to the same quiver-killing heritage. New for 2012, the Custom now features Squeezebox core profiling to maximize board feel and give you extra snap out of the tip and tail.
- Traditional camber profile provides optimal edge control and stability at all speeds
- Squeezebox construction uses strategic core profiling to improve board feel underfoot and ramp up ollie/nollie power in the tip/tail
- Carbon Lightning Bolts and I-Beam woven into the fiberglass laminate improve pop and edge grip
- Frostbite edges extend out 0.5mm from the binding zones for better control and grip in all snow conditions
- Dual-angle 10:45 sidewalls resist impact damage from rocks, stumps, and rails
- Wax-infused Sintered WFO base keeps you cruising fast through the flats—just don't forget to wax it once in a while
- The Channel allows more natural board flex and offers infinite stance options (compatible with Burton 3D and EST bindings)

Can someone at backcountry weigh this and...
Can someone at backcountry weigh this and post the weight here? Trying to compare weight for a 162 with the Vapor.
The Burton Vapor is famous for its extremely low weight, hence the name Vapor, it is only comparable with the Burton Method in terms of weight, glad i could help.
Huge Burton fan.
Thanks but I'm looking for an actual weight. The 162W Burton vapor is 6.3 pounds. What is the exact weight of the Burton Custom at 162W?
Trying to get past the marketing hype and just get the actual weight (something snowboard manufacturers don't seem to like to publish, as much as they like to talk about weight in generic, subjective terms).
Burton Custom and Custom Flying V
Took my new Flying V 162 to Park City with my best friend and his new Custom 158. Loved the spring and flex in the Flying V, but liked the stiffer feel of the Custom better. A third fiend rode both and loved the Flying V so much he bought mine and I came home and bought another Custom! Both are superb boards, which one is best depends on individual style. Want my daughter to upgrade to one as well.
SO PUMPED FOR THIS
I gave it 5 stars, but haven't ridden it yet. This however is the 4th custom I have owned in the last 16 years, and likely with the way technology has progressed, my last for a long time. Backcountry's shipping and price ant be beat, get one while you can.
Top class board!
Top notch board, very versatile, enables you to navigate from one terrain to the other! If You're on piste (which you shouldn't) but see some virgin pow, you don't think twice, you just hit it!
It pops nicely, and to my surprise very light and fun on the park. Most of all it is extremely forgiving. I quite like the EST system, makes powder much easier, if you move the bindings back a few centimeters.
Best board i've ever driven, and i plan to stick to this franchise in the future.
FYI, I ride a 162W Custom 2010: I am 184cm, 87kg, size 11 boots.
My boot size is 13, and I ride with my...
My boot size is 13, and I ride with my left foot at 16 degrees and right at roughly 18, what size board would I get the least drag?
Although each one of the Custom FV Wides has a different waist width you will want to start off with how much you weigh. Each length has a different weight range. Also, what bindings are you riding?
I weigh roughly 130lbs, I'm 5'10", and I'm thinking about getting some Flow Trilogy bindings... But I'm not too sure about those yet.
