General Description: The Burton Ripcord is designed to accelerate beginners and intermediates into more advanced riding situations. A directional shape makes easy work of any terrain or snow condition, while the added stability and catch-free feel of Flat Top with Easy Rider puts you in the pilot’s seat. A softer, more playful flex make this an easier going alternative to the Blunt, with a performance-oriented ride that gives you more room to grow than you’ll get with most entry level boards. The upgrade to The Channel™ gives you the easiest stance setup and adjustments possible with compatibility that works with any binding (not just Burton’s).
Rocker Type: Flat top - A flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling you’d expect from rocker.
Flex: 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.
Shape: Directional Shape - 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.
5MM Taper - A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. Look for different amounts of taper throughout the line.
Core: FSC™ Certified Fly® 900G Core - Our classic tip to tail wood core, constantly improved upon in terms of flex, feel, pop, and strength.
Base: Extruded Base - Speed, strength, and graphical pop in a base that requires little maintenance. Pass your friends without even waxing.
Edges: Easy ride edge tune.
