Whether you’re in deep or up in the air, spin tall tales on the ultimate freeride shape for women who seek to send it.
When our designers saw women reaching for men’s models like the Flight Attendant, they decided it was high time to create the ultimate women’s freeride machine. The Burton Story Board is designed to create hard charging moments – the kind you’ll be spinning yarns about for years to come. Control, versatility and confidence are key themes. A women’s-specific core profile complements the directionally cambered shape and 10mm of taper with torsional flex that drives and floats through turns on groomers and deep days alike.
BEND: Directional Camber - Entry rocker causes the nose to lift while camber under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions.
SHAPE: Directional Shape, 10mm 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. A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow floatation. Look for different amounts of taper throughout the line.
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.
FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core - Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.
Dualzone™ EGD™ - Engineered wood grains for more edge-hold, response, and strength. 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.
Squeezebox - Profiled core for easier board control, more energy, and pop. Our most versatile Squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate.
FIBERGLASS: Women's Specific Triax™ Fiberglass - Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.
BASE: Recycled Sintered WFO Base - 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 F!#@ing Open all season in any condition.
MOUNTING: The Channel™ - 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). Better yet, all boards with The Channel are fully covered by a 3-year warranty. This means that if you have any issue with any part of the board, even if The Channel is in mint condition, you are covered.
Carbon I-Beam™ - This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.
Super Sap® Epoxy - Super Sap® is 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, which is good in our book.
Balanced Freeride Geometry - Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry on the Flight Attendant, Flight Attendant Split, Flight Attendant X Split, Speed Date, Stun Gun, Trick Pony, Skeleton Key, Anti-Social, Day Trader, Stick Shift and Storyboard ends the debate with setback camber 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.
Pro-Tip™ - A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
Infinite Ride™ - This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. 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.
