BURTON CUSTOM FLYING V - SNOWBOARD BUYERS' GUIDE REVIEW Unsurprisingly, Burton have decided to keep making the best-selling snowboard ever. The ‘Flying V’ profile provides some of the playful feel of a rocker board but if you’re craving stability, there’s a conventional camber version too. It’s a bit too rigid for most beginners but if you’re looking for a performance all-rounder, they simply don’t come any better than this.
BURTON CUSTOM FLYING V - WHAT THE BRAND SAYS The one-board answer for all terrain, its proven design improves power, pop, and handling with evolutions like Squeezebox and Lightning Bolts to energize the ride. Available in two versions, camber is the precise choice for Nicolas Müller while Mikkel Bang switches it up, often running the “best of both worlds" hybrid Flying V.
