Camber puts pop into skis/snowboards and gives skiers/boarders good edge control while carving turns
Like a spouse, we don't really recommend picking your snowboard in a hurry. You should assess your needs carefully and consider whatever is on the market. But picking the Burton Family Tree Speed Date Snowboard will not be a disappointment. A high octane board that uses the best materials Burton has at its disposal, the Speed Date was originally conceived as a boardercross weapon, with tons of pop and power to navigate burly and icy luge courses. It does that with style, but in the meantime people discovered it also rips in pow as an all-mountain tool. No matter what, the Speed Date uses Burton best Dragonfly 600G core and 45˚ Carbon Highllights construction in a no-nonsense directional shape. Not a board for lazy riders or those lacking confidence, the Speed Date comes alive when you push it hard, and you'll want to do just that.
Directional Camber – A blend of rocker and camber in the nose combines float and control while camber under the back foot drives with power and stability.
Directional Flex – This flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.
Balanced Freeride Geometry – Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers, and Balanced Freeride Geometry ends the debate with setback rocker profile and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.
Directional | 7 mm Taper – 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.
Pro-Tip™ – A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
FSC Certified Dragonfly 600G Core – Over 500 independent laminations, each individually oriented within the core and using firmer wood under the binding area with lighter wood at the nose and tail, result in superior weight-savings, strength, and energized response. Burton's most advanced core.
Multizone™ EGD™ – The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core for consistent edge-hold and added strength.
45° Carbon Highlights – Carbon Highlights optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 60° fiber angle creates a highly maneuverable and playful feel, while a 45° fiber angle provides more aggressive ride.
ReRez® Composite – Burton's new almost-zero-waste manufacturing process thanks to a material deconstruction called ReRez®. Simply put, it allows Burton to deconstruct the scraps leftover from shaping, sort them, and then return the materials to the recycling stream to be re‑used in other products.
Recycled Sintered WFO – Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays wide open all season and in any
The Channel® Mounting System – Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable -- The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton's).
