Fusing together a mysterious cocktail of carbon and space age design, the brainchild of Craig’s Proto Facility now has three years of technological tweaking and tinkering integrated into its very core. High-tech micro-milled ingredients and a precise material matrix increases speed, adds amplitude, and reduces fatigue for a board so light it literally hovers down the mountain. NEW Dual Guard Rails blend the latest in dampening with the ultimate in durability. That’s public knowledge. The rest is officially top secret but we can verify that the ride is snappy, surfy and one that Craig himself would be proud to put his name on.
Powerful, poppy, and precise—camber speaks to the core values of board design. Offering a snappy suspension, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail.
The classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.
The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile regular or switch.
•CORE: Ultrafly Our lightest core ever, Ultrafly’s precision-milling revolutionizes the strength-to-weight and performance achievable with a wood core construction. Exclusive to the Mystery and Mystery Flying V™.
Multizone EGD™ In four separate zones, the wood grain is perpendicular to the core adjacent to The Channel—the area from which a rider’s power emanates—for ultimate strength and edge control.
•FIBERGLASS: Mystery Glass
Using a formula from the future, Mystery Glass is the result of a robotic-built complex carbon layup that allows us to manipulate flex and feel while revolutionizing strength-to-weight. Exclusive to the Mystery and Mystery Flying V™.
Ultra durable and low-maintenance, Burton’s highest grade sintered base creates blistering speed that lasts all season. Exclusive to the Mystery and Mystery Flying V™.
•FEATURES: Mystery Construction Shaving weight while enhancing feel and strength, Mystery Construction creates a board that’s lighter than anything Burton has seen to date. Much of it’s a secret, but the combination of a precision milled Ultrafly Core and proprietary carbon-fiber matrix drops serious weight while maintaining a playful and snappy ride. Exclusively offered on the Mystery, the first board developed at Craig’s, our in-house proto facility.
The Channel is snowboarding’s ultimate connection, offering the fastest, easiest way to mount your bindings with the most stance options possible. It’s also compatible with all major binding companies, so why settle for anything less? NEW for 2014, all boards featuring The Channel are backed by a three-year warranty. Stainless Frostbite Edges Get superior defense against rust and corrosion for edges that remain razor-sharp.
Pro-Tip™ A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
NEW Dual Guard Rails Engineered as a defense against destruction, NEW Dual Guard Rails upgrade durability, add dampening, and amp up visual appeal in the sidewall dimension. Dual Guard Rails are a combination of high-grade TPU that provides cushioning with extremely durable polycarbonate for increased strength.
This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
•Diecut Base Color Combinations May Vary
The classic. Nothing is quite like the crispness, power and precision of camber at higher speeds. Ideal for aggressive riders and traditionalists.
The all-round performer. Far and away, this is our best-selling platform. Ultimate versatility comes from blending both rocker and camber traits to get a balance that offers both the stability of camber and the easy ride of rocker. Some boards in this category fall closer to a camber feel, while others ride a little looser like a rocker board. Find your balance and get a board here that does it all.
Flat from contact point to contact point for control and stability with a catch-free feel
Like waking up at noon on summer holiday. Rocker boards feature a reverse camber lay-up that is less-catchy, turns easier and sends the fun factor/high-five frequency into the stratosphere. These boards generally offer a more forgiving ride which is ideal for newer/casual riders, jibbing and easy style pow hounds alike.
ALL MOUNTAIN FREESTYLE
Do it ALL. Wanna grab some pow turns up top, scream down a mid-mountain groomer and then hit the park at the bottom? THESE are your boards. Our best-selling configuration. Generally an all-mountain twin-tip, directional twin or minimal directional shape that’s poised to do it all.
Tech freestyle supremacy. These twin tip boards generally feature a slightly softer flex and shorter contact points which make for boards that are slightly more maneuverable but still have the landing gear you need to grease park laps day-in and day-out. If park laps and hit runs are your jam, then this is where you live. If that last sentence didn’t make sense, it’s best not to look here.
Parks are where I walk my dog, the mountain is where I snowboard. Pow/Freeride boards quite often offer a distinct directional shape, featuring a tapering shape designed to provide the smoothest ride out on the mountain—whether it’s first chair on a pow day or late afternoon when it’s all bombed out. With options that range from resort freeride, slackcountry through to backcountry, the pow/freeride category is your go-to for riders not looking to ride the park and capitalize on the rest of the mountain.
Narrower widths mean lightning fast edge transfers and less fatigue for riders that have smaller feet. Suggested for all women’s sizes and Men’s 8.5 and below. Look for waist widths that are below 25cms.
Regular widths offer only critical measurements that will kill toe-heel drag, but also maintain proper response to keep turns quick and agile while not tiring you out. Ideal for rider with US Men’s 9-11.5 feet. Look for board widths that are 25-25.5 cm wide, going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
Anyone with a size 12+ boot can tell you—toe/heel drag sucks. Kill the culprit with a wider waist board and get the freedom to turn as hard as you want. Riders with 12+ boot sizes will want to look at boards with waist width of an absolute minimum of 25.6cm and go up from there—going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
