Super Fly® 800G Core with Dualzone™ EGD™

a dual-species wood core that is loaded with pop and alternates between hard and soft woods to reduce overall weight without limiting performance Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.

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.

Lightweight Feel

Fiber Glass


features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex and a forgiving feel that's great for beginning riders or the park



provides speed and strength and requires little in the way of maintenance

Additional Features


Burton boards with “pro-tip” have a tapered tip and tail thickness.

This reduces swing weight and therefore improves maneuverability along with overall board feel.

Whether you choose to ride Flat Top, Flying V™, 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.

Super Sap® Epoxy

A resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies.

Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board

Factory Tuned Board

comes waxed and ready for the mountain right from the factory.



All 2014 and newer Burton snowboards with The Channel mounting system (such as the one you are looking at here) are backed by a three-year warranty from date of purchase.
