Freeride board with a freestyle mindset.
The Burton Sherlock Snowboard combines a directional freeride flex with a twin freestyle shape, to help you get rad all over the mountain. It has all the features you'd expect from Burton, like The Channel mounting system for unrestricted setup and a Flying V profile that blends deep snow float with all-terrain freedom. So whether you're seeking out side-hits or popping pillow lines, the Sherlock won't let you down.
Burton's Flying V profile puts rocker under your feet, for deep snow float and a forgiving ride, and mates it with camber under the feet, for powerful turns and stomped landings. The Sherlock has a twin shape for high-speed switch takeoffs, but the directional flex employs a softer nose to keep the nose from diving on when the snow stacks up. There's a half inch of setback, which maintains a slightly directional feel. Side Effects means you get the longest possible effective edge per size, which translates into trenched-in turns. Frostbite edges bump out under the bindings, for improved edge hold in firm and icy conditions, since you'll likely come across tracked out sections on the way to your favorite stash.
The profiled Super Fly II core keeps the weight low and the response high. It gets a boost from Squeezebox, which means that the core is thinner under the bindings. It works in conjunction with The Channel mounting system to eliminate dead spots in the flex pattern, for predictable control. Pro Tip construction in the tip and tail reduces swing weight for fast spins and responsive turns. Infinite Ride ensures that the Sherlock feels broken out of the box, and stays that way for the life of the board.

So much fun

The Sherlock will change your life. Seriously. So much fun in all conditions, but thrives in powder. I've been on a Custom for the past 5 years and decided to change it up this winter. The Sherlock isn't as fast or powerful as the traditional camber Custom, but the fun factor more than makes up for it. You will love this board.

I have the 2013 and the 2014 version of this board in a 57 and a 54. Last year was my most epic year of riding in 10 years with this board; and that was at Snowbird on one of their lowest snow seasons in 40 years. Great in powder, nice and jibby everywhere, and it holds its edge well compared to other hybrid camber boards in the same style. You can just rock it on edge and then carve away. Pair this with some of Burton's hinge bindings (I have the Genesis) and you have a seriously sick ride that'll get you through just about anything in comfort and style.
