Description

Turn any mountain feature into your own personal booter.

For years, the Custom X Snowboard has been the choice for rippers like DCP, Kazu, and Frederik. This year Burton updated it with an ICS system to give you more binding options. With nearly three decades of building experience and new technology, Burton gave the Custom X a precise feel for the sickest terrain. This ride provides pop with a Dragonfly core, speed with a Sintered N2O WFO base, and low swing weight thanks to Burton's Pro-Tip construction. A setback stance increases float in the powder, but this board's freestyle-inspired shape lets you go switch in the park as well. *We can't control the color of board you get, but who doesn't like surprises? - Fall 2008.

Awesome

Love it! It's my first board and it does everything I expect it too and then some. Easy to setup and make adjustments on the fly. Couldn't ask for more.

best ride

Best ride. Love this board and would never go outside burton. Had the special 157 prior. I am an advanced rider 6'1" 160lbs and ride the 160cm. Great for kickers AMAZING for carving. I don't destroy this board on rails though..I use my old specail for a day with rails. Custom x is to perfect to destroy

Best ride in a while

I have to say that this is one of the best boards that I have had the pleasure of riding. Holds an edge on the ice and floats over the powder, plus I beat everybody down the mountain. This board has made me a solid Burton fan.

why not make a 173 or 174 for us tall people?
and for that matter, lets bring back Switch Bindings (they were the best ever in my opinion). I'm feeling like i'm being phased out, but i've been here for decades.

Best Answer Responded on

technology is so good these days that you can get all the performance gains you used to get in a longer board out of a shorter stick.

i.e.: Tail Taper, sidecut, waist width, rocker/camber, etc.

This board is meant for a high-end demanding rider. Throwing switch bindings on it would just cause loss of the performance gains you get by stepping up to this.

Try EST with the Channel. You may need to take an extra 10 seconds at the top of the hill to get in but the performance and feel gains will be well worth the wait!

Screwed

Don't Lose any of the screws. My Bindings blew up because I was not using the EST binding and I lost one of the contact screws during the crash. I thought I could buy just the one screw that I needed. I came to find out that this one little screw would cost me at $50 because I would have to buy the whole ICS hardware system- Burton would not supply me or any of the shops with this one little screw.

Will a regular pair of '09 Cartel bindings work the ICS system?

Best Answer Responded on

Yes, Cyrus B. has a great picture posted of hardware which comes with the board. The two discs are for non-EST bindings to fit in the Infinite Channel System.

Awesome All Mtn Board

I love this board! I think this is a great all mountain board. Holds and edge well and has a nice stiff flex to it.

Only down fall I'd say is that I wouldn't hit any boxes or rails w/ it. It's a bit pricey to want to put dings in your board.

Responded on

there aren't hand rails on the side of mountains. call me a purest, but i'll take a tree ride and a rock drop over the terrain parks of today..... although i do wish we had those kickers when i was a kid. i had to find cliffs to jump off of.
i don't hit boxes and my board has lasted since 1997. and i ride hard. i've gone through a few sets of boots... bindings.... but my board is going strong.
boxes and rails are for rich kids who can replace their board every year. and aren't worried about breaking their face.
andway, i'm old and sinical

Nope, the sizes are color coded. You will only get the green one for 160cm. The yellow/black ones are 152cm ONLY.

Why Are Burton 25% More Expensive

Because you are paying for the constant R&D that raises the standard of board manufacturing world wide.If Burton weren't doing it the whole game would be stagnent. Because you can buy a burton board and if you have problems take to any dealer located in every country town on the planet with a ski filed and have spare parts or new board replaced on your doorstep within 2 days. If I am on holidays somewhere that 25% is my insurance, Nitro can't do that or many other manufacturers offer this sort of support.

STOKED!

I took a few runs on my friends 07 Custom X and thats basically all i needed to convince me to buy my own. Egde hold and stibilty were great, like any stiff board...but what really impressed me was the fluidness and ease of carving, super smooth ride and easy to initaite turns. when i went off a relativly small natural, with a just a small pop i launched into the air so high that it caught me off guard!...luckly this thing's flex its dialed perfect so that the landing was smooth and stable. Awesome ride...picked up the 08 156 and Cartel EST's a few days ago and saved near 550 bucks as opposed to buying next year (CX is going to be 730 next year) not to mention the ICS system super versatile and adjustments are presice, fast, easy, and exact to 1 or 2 milimeters in every direction, and angles can be changed by 1 degree!...so grab this awesome ride at a great price while you can!...but if you have to pay full price its worth it anyway, cuz it just keeps gettin better.

this is all the hardware you will ever need for an ICS board, and it comes with the board, not the bindings.

A. bolts are slid into the channel
B. these plugs are used to keep the bolts from falling out of the channel if by some mis-hap
C. (optional) retro disks for using non-est BURTON bindings
D. 4 screws bolt everything down tight

i opted for the cartels instead of the triads or CO2's because of all the breakage issues....i lucked out with this combo! The black Cartel EST's match the Custom X in everyway, no matter what color CX you have. the 4 colors on the cartels high backs correspond with each of the 4 colors the CX comes in, and with the 4 colors on the PDE's

ive ridden the custom x so i know how the flex is, can someone please put these 3 boards in the order from softest to stiffest; Custom X, T6, and Vapor...i dunno how everyone but me knows, unless its just the "feel rating" on burtons website?

Responded on

K a burton rep told me on dogfunk, it goes Vapor, Custom X, and T6...ill keep this on here for if someone else is wondering

Responded on

That is correct. The custom X is pretty stiff, the t6 is REALLY stiff, and the Vapor is only about as stiff as a regular Custom.

More fun than the Vapor

I used the Burton Vapor for a week, then got bored of it so I decided to try the Custom X. This board does it all, powder, staying alive on ice, park, pipe, jumps, and probably jibs and rails too (I haven't tried because I don't want to mess up my new favorite board!). The Custom X is pretty stiff though so don't expect to use it to spread butter, but it has amazing pop. The addition of the ICS system is great, carry a small screw driver when using this board and you'll never want to leave the mountain.

Best burton board but...

I rode my custom x for three hard seasons! I loved the board and it was definitely the best burton board for all mountain riding. It was time for a new board this year and I was going to get another custom x but decided to demo a never summer premier f1. After one day of riding the NS, I was sold. I bought the premier, and probably will never buy another burton board again. So the custom x was great....but the NS rides better, and has a 3 year warranty!
