Razor-sharp precision for riders pushing the limits.

As much as times change, some things thankfully stay the same. Like the Burton Custom X Snowboard, for example. It's the longstanding go-to for Burton's team riders who need maximum control on exposed lines and massive jumps, thanks to its stiff flex and powerful cambered shape. Naturally, it gets the best of Burton's tech to bring it up to modern standards, but when you've got a classic like this in your lineup, there's no reason to mess with the formula.

Camber ain't dead, and the Custom X is proof. The full length camber shape translates into locked-in Euro-carves and stomped landings on the biggest jumps on the planet. That 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 25mm of stance setback, for plenty of directional stability, but the twin flex ensures solid switch landings and takeoffs.

The ultra-light Dragonfly 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. Round it out with a super-fast, wax absorbent WFO sintered base, and you're out of excuses for coming up short on the biggest jumps in your local park.

  • Traditional camber

I am an expert skier but am stopping due...

Posted on

I am an expert skier but am stopping due to 20 years of knee surgeries. I want to learn snowboarding. I surf 4x per week, but that is my only board sport. Two of my three buddies have and love the Custom X. Is the Custom X too advanced to use for learning? I'm 5'11/ 165lbs and was thinking of a 160cm.

Thank you.

This is a beast of a board that will not help you progress very fast. I would go with just the Custom and not the Custom X. The Custom will be much better for all around riding. Where as the Custom X is a stiff charger that wants to be rode hard. Check out the Custom in the link below. It is the same board just a little softer and more forgiving. http://www.backcountry.com/burton-custom-snowboard?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6Y3VzdG9tOjE6MTpjdXN0b20

Sup dudes and dudets? I'll expand on what Kyle has to say in that the Custom X is one of the most progressive and aggressive snowboards that Burton makes. Irrespective of the boards overall stiffness, the side-cut is too aggressive for someone who is learning. You want a board that is appropriate to your weight, yet has a forgiving side-cut radius. I assume you're not going to be hauling ass from one kicker to the next so having a board that you can drive through high speed carving and hold an edge is of no importance to you. Frankly, high side cut radius if anything will promote more edge catching and potential injury. You're learning time will be spent primarily with the base of the board in full contact with the snow, side slipping, skating and learning how to stop. An aggressive side cut radius is for those who are confident snowboarders and who spend their time hauling nonsensical ass from edge to edge.

Look at it this way, when you learned to ski, you didn't show up and learn on the most aggressive top of the line skis. What for? It's an entirely moot point. You needed to learn before shredding.

Pro tip: Whichever board you decide to go with, make sure you de-tune the edges around the nose and tail to where they each respectively make contact with a surface. This will keep you from 'catching' unnecessary edges.

Awesome all-mountain board

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So I have the 2013 model and it rides absolutely beautifully! Even though I got the 162 Wide, it just rides so naturally once I got my bindings set right. You can have as light or heavy of an edge hold as you like and, although responsive, it never feels twitchy (as long as you pay attention to what you're doing) The base also holds its wax very well, even after slicing over some rocks and plenty of East Coast blue ice. The thick sidewalls means that you can also ride on super-aggressive angles without worrying about the board washing out or chattering. Oh, and it's fast... VERY fast. This board isn't for beginners, but if you know how to handle yourself and keep your head on a swivel, it will never let you down. It's also held up to my 7-days-a-week shenanigans of working on the mountain without ANY defects; visible or otherwise.

Truly the best.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This board is the ultimate all-mountain shredding machine. I love it for groomers, pipe, park (large jumps/features), and of course going through fresh powder. This board can do it all. It's an extremely fast and poppy board. Lightweight for what it is. Very solid and responsive.

Just purchased my second Custom X after the 2012 model cracked in half right between the bindings after about ten days of riding on the eat coast. Purchased the 13-14 model, it also cracked just forward of the front binding after a very mild hit from a rock under the snow. Also cracked in the nose through the topsheet after some light tree riding early season. These boards cannot take daly abuse although very light they are extremely fragile, for any normal rider trying to hit the whole mountain for years to come this board will not last. Its good as a decoration for squids who will put it on their wall and say they own it. DO NOT BUY. Come on Burton pull your act together.

Have you considered riding on snow instead of rocks and trees?

No boards hold up to trees or rocks...........trust me, basically a waste of time and effort to read and same as the skier up top if you are a beginner then the most advanced aggressive board will make you a better rider? No do some research and don't listen to your friends that are either more advanced riders than you or have more money than brains
