The traditional cambered Burton Custom has a 20-year pedigree, and while the Burton Custom Flying V has only been around since the beginning of the last decade, it’s made quite an impact in it own right.
While it boasts a twin shape and twin flex, it has an asymmetrical element too. Like many Burtons the core is thinner at certain points to reduce weight and improve flex, but on the Custom Twin the sections are angled to line up with the stance of a duck-footed park rider. The edges, too, vary slightly – not in the shape of the depth of sidecut as with other asym boards, but in where on each side the ‘Frostbite’ edge protrudes out to grip the slope. It’ll still ride like a twin, then, but the subtle differences to the edges add up to better response without any distractions.
It’ll handle the rest of the hill , thanks to the camber profile and sintered base, but if you’re more likely to spend your days in the park then the Burton Custom Twin is the version you want.
