Canadian medal-plunderer Mark McMorris favours the Burton Process, which should give you some idea of what it’s designed to do. Of course, you don’t have to be a triple-corker to enjoy it, and it’s actually far less of a high-end precision tool than its famous patron might suggest.

It’s got a classic camber profile, meaning that you’ll have no problem setting up for an icy booter – especially with the edges that protrude out from under the bindings for extra grip – and a medium flex that’s stable without limiting how much you can play around on it. Pressing on boxes is made especially easy thanks to the wide nose and tail, a which also come in handy in the powder.

As with the Custom, the Burton Process has now spawned a few variants based on the popularity of the original. There’s a hybrid camber version for those who prefer a looser feel (watch the video for more on that), and an asymmetrical one too.

All are twin-shaped freestyle weapons, though; if that’s what you’re after, and you prefer the control and pop that you only get with classic camber, then the original Process ticks all the boxes.

Tester's Verdict

Adam Hoskins - blisssnowboards.co.uk

“Don’t be afraid of camber! The main benefits are constant edge hold from tip-to-tail, and maximum pop.

It’s also ideal for carving on the groomed piste, lining up to hit rails in the park and boosting off big jumps. The Process has a soft-to-medium flex and thinner sections of core that make it really easy to ride.

It’s the board to take your freestyle riding to next level."
