These days the Burton Process is synonymous with Mark McMorris and his quest to defy all medical science in the pursuit of medals. Indeed, it was the deck he rode to Olympic bronze in the slopestyle.
It’s still a true twin with a medium flex and hybrid camber, so park riders of all shapes and sizes would do well to check out the Burton Process. While it’s fairly flexible from end to end, the triax fibreglass stiffens it up a little torsionally for more response.
“For all its clever tech the Burton Process still comes in at a very attractive price”
Whether you’re charging towards a kicker on the high-speed sintered base, or just blasting a few pistes to clear the cobwebs before the session, it’s good to have a board that’ll instantly obey your command.
In the air, the Process is as light as a feather. The core varies in thickness to ensure there’s robust sections where they’re most needed, and thinner, flexier sections elsewhere. Each end of the board has also been tapered, to bring the swing weight down in particular. When you’re spinning, you’ll feel the benefits instantly.
The edges of the board protrude out a little under the bindings, improving this board’s grip on icy terrain. As for the contact points, they’ve been lengthened for a less catchy ride – useful for pressing on boxes and rails, as well as when just riding the groomers.
Finally, for all its clever tech the Burton Process still comes in at a very attractive price. And that’s for both flavours – the classic camber version, and its hybrid-profile ‘Flying V’ equivalent.
