If you’re longing for a fun board to jazz up your life, the Burton Skeleton Key is the flykick to the face you’ve been craving. Everything’s made to be fun with this board, the Skeleton Key is back to please the every-terrain rippers who prefer a bit of a rollercoaster ride.
This is definitely the definition of a good time board, it’s the ideal blend of loose and playful. The setback camber with rocker in the nose, directional shape and 10mm taper defines this loose cannon as a powder board. The elongated nose will keep you plaining when you score some powder, and the cutout tail has a smaller surface area causing it to sink more to keep your weight over the back leg.
“The Burton Skeleton Key is the flykick to the face you’ve been craving”
Despite its obvious powder-like shape, this isn’t your average powder board by any stretch. It’s superb for boosting side hits and cruising about on piste. The camber profile allowing for powerful riding and dynamic turns.
The Skeleton key is a soft-ish board, which makes it the fun friend you’d take out for a laugh at the weekend. However, as it’s a soft board this maybe isn’t ideal for tackling choppy snow and you might be thrown off balance when facing bumpy terrain. If you’re one to usually charge through any kind of terrain, you might want to take a look at Burton’s Deep Thinker board instead.
This is a lively ride, one which will make sure you won’t get bored any time soon. Not a board to be pigeon holed, the Skeleton Key has an all access pass all over the mountain.
