The 2018 Burton Custom X is the most aggressive boards in the Burton range, offering high calibre speed and precision that pro riders demand from their highest-end setups. The Custom X is the weapon of choice for backcountry kickers, high speeds, and aggressive carves, and is being seen more and more as the go to board for pipe riding, banked slalom, and any event that needs premium response and edge hold. The Burton Custom X is the pinnacle of performance for riders who demand nothing less.
Camber Type: Positive Camber
The original, tried and true camber type, and the advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision. Traditional camber is the most aggressive camber type, offering unmatched power, response, and edge control.
Flex: 7-8/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
Twin Flex - This board is constructed the same at both ends to give a smooth ride while riding regular or switch.
With a slightly longer nose than tail, this board can pop off a decent ollie while still having the nose to float above any powder that comes your way.
Dragonfly 600G - A core made of end-grain woods in impact zones allows Burton to use lightweight woods without sacrificing strength.
45° Carbon Highlights - A tip to tail carbon layer reduces weight and contains 45° angled fibres, fine tuning the torsional flex to make a more aggressive ride. The addition of carbon strands to the angled fibre layers adds life to the board and further reduces weight.
Multizone EGD - Wood grain in four separate zones perpendicular to The Channel provides ultimate power and edge control.
Squeezebox High - A thicker and more powerful core section with thinner and more flexible sections in the tip and tail. This enhances energy transfer and makes the board snappier and more stable. Squeezebox High provides you with a more powerful pop, quicker snap, and speedy edge to edge transitions, with carbon fleece support outside the bindings.
Base: Sintered WFO
Standing for Wide F!#@ing Open, this base made from an extra absorbent, high density sintered material that is infused with a specially formulated wax, resulting in an ultra durable base that rides Wide F!#@ing Open.
Infinite Ride - Burton overbuild some of their boards and then a machine breaks it in for you! This makes the board ride the same from day 1 till day 100.
Pro Tip - A thinner tip and tail means reduced weight and swing when in the air. helping you to send it!
Frostbite Edges - Edges that extend out slightly underneath your bindings for enhanced edge hold on hardpack and ice.
Board Lengths: 156cm, 158cm
Set Back: 25mm
