The Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard is one of Burton's most popular snowboards and will no doubt be the one to beat in 2013. This board is Much Awesome.
Over the past few years, skiers and snowboarders have migrated increasingly from resort slopes and parks to surrounding sidecountry and onward to deeper, more remote backcountry peaks and lines. While backcountry riding has opened up all kinds of new possibilities, it’s also increased the need for more purpose-built gear.

Jones Flagship has scored multiple awards without carbon fiber, so the Carbon Flagship should take Jeremy’s halo board to an unprecedented level of performance. The board combines a carbon top sheet and carbon stringers, giving it the rare ability to plough through the crustiest, chunkiest gnar while reacting on a dime when it matters most. Just take a quick peek at that solid black weave under your feet, and you should have the surge of confidence needed to take on your mountain’s nastiest lines. Outside of its carbon makeover, the Carbon Flagship relies on tried and true design elements. The directional rocker provides nose float to sail through the deepest of powder while giving you full edge hold.
