It’s hard enough to get one pro model, let alone two, but Danny Davis just the kind of rider to qualify. His ability to slay both parks and powder have led to the Burton Free Thinker and this, the Burton Deep Thinker.
Not that this one isn’t for freestyle; the shape is directional, yes, but not to the extent that you wouldn’t want to attempt a switch landing into pow. There’s certainly enough pop to get airborne easily, courtesy of the backseat camber profile and stiff flex.
“Thanks to its subtle taper and sink-friendly tail, the Burton Deep Thinker is a breeze to ride in the backcountry”
Also worth mentioning is the ‘Squeezebox’ core. As you move from one end of the board to the other, it varies in thickness. The end result is a deck that flexes in all the right places, and strong where it counts. It’s a subtle effect, but one that improves every ollie and keeps the overall weight down.
Thanks to its subtle taper and sink-friendly tail, the Burton Deep Thinker is a breeze to ride in the backcountry. At the same time, you don’t want to get too complacent; the carbon-enhanced fibreglass makes it very responsive, so confident snowboarders will fare better.
