If you’re laid-back and easygoing, the Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard might be the perfect board for you. The most playful of all of Burton’s offerings, the Flying V comes through with the perfect amount of rocker and camber resulting in a snowboard with serious snap, pop, power, and control.
This board is a hoot to ride.
Snowboards used to primarily have either rocker or camber. You probably have heard of the whole rocker vs. camber debate. Which is better? It’s hard to say but with the Burton Flying V you don’t even have to choose. It combines the perfect amount of each – both rocker and camber – into one high-flying, pow-shredding monster of a board. An aggressive rocker is built into the nose and tail of the board and the area between your feet while the camber resides underneath your feet. The mixture of the two paves the way for the aforementioned snap, pop, power, and control while still keeping the fun feel that comes with a heavily rockered board.
The board is kept light, strong, and speedy with the Burton Super Fly II™ with Dualzone™ EGD™ core and its Triax™ Fiberglass, Lightning Bolts, and Carbon I-Beam™ construction. For those who are extremely tech-conscious, the specs on the Flying V also include a Sintered WFO base, 10:45™ sidewalls, Frostbite Edges, and Progressively Wider Waist Widths. For the snowboarder who doesn’t care so much about specs and just wants the down low: the Flying V absolutely rocks.
Like most other Burton snowboards nowadays, the Flying V comes equipped with their progressive Channel system so that you can make sure that you’re completely dialed in on the slopes. The Channel system allows for super easy and accessible tweaking of your bindings while you’re on the go. No more screws. No more screwing around. The Channel system reduces the board’s weight and eliminates all of the fuss associated with outdated bindings.

Whether you’re down for the big mountain, manicured slopes, or the park, the Burton Custom Flying V holds tough. It’s stable at the highest of speeds, holds an edge even on ice, carves like an absolute dream, and has pop for days. It’s a great all-around board to add to your quiver, but be warned: if you do go with the Flying V, your other boards might not get out of the garage ever again!
