Burton Rewind 2018-2019 Women’s Snowboard Review

Burton calls this “the hardest charging ‘soft’ board on the mountain,” so female riders who prefer something with a mellower flex may want to take a look at the new-look Burton Rewind women’s snowboard.

There are a few asymmetrical elements to the Burton Rewind, although the outline is true twin. The raised pads for your bindings (which to let you use the Channel mounting system on a board with an impossibly thin core) are positioned to match up with the ‘duck’ stance – that’s toes pointing out the way – favoured by most park riders.

“If you want to press everything from the piste to the down-flat-down then you’ll love this”

Even with that extra-thin core, Burton has still managed to vary the thickness for a better flex, and that’s lined up with the park stance too. Finally, the ‘Frostbite’ sections of edge that stick out a little for added grip are placed at different points on the heel and toe edge.

The core makes it really quite bendy from end to end, so if you want to press everything from the piste to the down-flat-down then you’ll love this. Triax fibreglass makes it a little more rigid from edge to edge, which may take some getting used to, but it does mean you get a bit more control at high speeds.

While you can give it a razz – especially as it has a decent sintered base – the focus should be on chucking this off everything in sight, from side hits to park jumps. If that sounds like your cup of tea, check out the Burton Rewind women’s snowboard.

Tester’s Verdict

“Playful is an understatement; this is a jibber’s dream. I had so much fun on this butter machine, holding presses with zero effort.

“A jibber’s dream”

If you spend your days searching for wee jib lines in the park or on the piste then this is right up your street. It’s so much fun on boxes and rails, and makes learning new tricks super easy.

It’s not as comfortable at high speeds but still holds an edge well when put through its paces.
It does feel a little loose on bigger jumps due to its softer profile, which makes it easy to wash out on the landing.”
