Why We Chose The Burton AK Cyclic Jacket and Pants: If you’re looking to tackle the big mountains in style.
Burton are the original snowboarder-owned brand, and by many measures, still the best. When it comes to investing in the sports’ grassroots, no other company comes close—from sponsoring dryslope contests in the UK to their commitment to running a genuinely open global contest series for many years, where no-name riders could qualify through the ranks to compete with top pros, Burton has arguably done more to grow the sport of snowboarding than anyone else.
“Our tester used this as his go-to jacket and pants last winter for almost all conditions”
Their high-end AK range has long been the benchmark when it comes to high performance snowboard-specific clothing, and the Cyclic Jacket and Pants are packed with brilliant features.
Who Are The Burton AK Cyclic For?
Burton’s AK range, as the name suggests, is designed to tackle big mountains, like the kind their team riders Ben Ferguson or Zoi Sadowski-Synnott might encounter in Alaska. It’s high tech stuff aimed at freeriders and splitboarders—although the prices are not so ludicrous as to put them out of reach of those who spend the majority of their time ripping around resorts.
