Burton Skeleton Key 2018

Description

The Skeleton Key is a mix between the Con Artist and the Flight Attendant, and you end up with a hard charging, directional camber board that can handle the biggest and steepest terrain you can throw at it.

For an aggressive rider, who wants a powerful board, the Skeleton key will ride just as well on hardpacked groomers as it does in deep snow.


Key Features

Board Type - All Mountain / Powder

Camber Type:

Directional Camber - Camber under your feet gives you stability and control, while the rocker on the nose keeps the board afloat in deep snow.

Flex: Medium

Shape:

Directional - A directional shape means the nose is wider than the tail. This gives the board a smooth turn shape and promotes float in powder. On top of that, it has 30mm of taper, which means that the nose is 30mm wider than the tail, which helps keep it afloat while sinking the tail.

Core:

Super Fly II 700g -The lightest wood used to keep the weight down and stronger wood used in specific areas to provide strength where it's needed.

Triax Fiberglass - Three angles layers of fiberglass creating enough response to rip terrain and enough flex to have fun and make micro adjustments.

Base:

Recycled Sintered WFO - Strong and wax absorbent, added speed through the power of a sintered base. All the speed you need for a day riding park or racing for all the untracked lines.

Additional Features:

Squeezebox - Thicker and thinner core sections throughout the board allow the board to flex where you want it and more power where you need it.

The Channel - This allows micro stance-width and angle changes. It also allows the board to fully flex all the way through by wiping out the dead-spot under your foot where the inserts would be. It's pretty rad and gives you near limitless stance options.

Infinite Ride - Get that new board feeling for longer with a ride that will feel the same from day one to day fifty.

Pro Tip - A thinner tip and tail reduce the swing weight of the board, maintaining a lightweight, natural feel and more board without the bulk.
