Craig's Facility

Craig Kelly is recognized by many as the “Godfather of Freeriding,” so it’s only appropriate that Burton’s R & D facility be named after this seminal Burton team rider. At this site on the campus of Burton headquarters in Burlington, Vermont, engineers take the ideas and feedback from pro riders, engineers, and customers and turn them into experimental boards. These prototypes can be built in hours and can then be then rigorously tested by both humans and dedicated machinery, as part of Burton’s continuing quest to push the sport forward.

Youth Outerwear

Burton outerwear for kids offers the perfect combination of cool styles kids love and the durability and performance parents require. Older kids will dig the grown-up look of Burton’s jackets, pants, and accessories, while the Minishred line and the Disney Pixar collab collection will have the younger ones amped to layer up and get out there. Snow-friendly features like expandable hood gaiters and adjustable cuffs keep the wet stuff out, while Burton’s Room-to-Grow system ensures that they can enjoy their Burton outerwear for more than one season.

[ak] Outerwear

Form follows function in Burton’s top-of-the-line [ak] collection. Whether it’s GORE-TEX ® outerwear, insulation and baselayers, technical backpacks, or gloves, every item in the [ak] collection is designed to offer best-in-class performance for the serious rider who is out on the mountain in all conditions. Just ask top backcountry riders like Kimmy Fasani, Terje Haakonsen, Mikey Rencz, and Jussi Oksanen—they ride in some of the most remote terrain and challenging weather around, and they run [ak].

Family Tree Hardgoods

Burton’s Family Tree line of freeride snowboards is constantly evolving to stay at the cutting edge of the sport. Featuring splitboards like the Landlord and the women’s Anti-Social, all-mountain pow-hunters like the Landlord, and deep-snow specialists like the swallowtail Pile Driver, the Family Tree boards have an affinity for untouched backcountry lines and hidden tree stashes at the resort.

About Burton Snowboards
Without Jake Burton, snowboarding wouldn't be what it is today. Fueled by unwavering passion, he and the company he founded, Burton, have driven the evolution of snowboarding over the past 35 years with innovative thinking and industry-defining products.

It all started in 1977 with the Backhill, a narrow wooden board with single-strap bindings and a rope and handle attached to the nose. In fact, the rope and handle were common on Burton boards through the early '80s. That decade saw important innovations like metal edges, P-Tex bases, and the advent of the term 'shred' to refer to snowboarding. By the late '80s, Burton was making boots, jackets, pants, collapsible poles, snowshoes, backcountry packs, and even team movies. Burton continued to push the envelope through the '90s and into the new millennium.

Since then, Burton founded its Craig's R&D facility and introduced countless new innovations. Notable achievements include the Channel binding attachment system, which gains more fans every year for its responsiveness and ease. In fact, it's now the only system available on Burton snowboards, even backcountry splitboards. Burton snowboarding boots essentially defined the category, introducing ideas like speed lacing that make boots as comfortable as they are capable.

Burton has also manufactured outerwear, including jackets and pants, since the late '80s. At the top of the line sits the [ak] series; inspired by the Burton pros who ride—and film—the big lines of Alaska, it's Gore-Tex outerwear designed for serious riders braving serious conditions. The Mountain collection brings together vintage style and the latest technical fabrics, while The White Collection, created in collaboration with snowboarding legend Shaun White, combines weather protection with fashion-forward style. Off the mountain, too, you can enjoy the heritage-based aesthetic of the Mountain collection or the clean, functional Process line of laid-back apparel for men, women, and kids.

Along with its technical outerwear, Burton also makes hats, gloves and mittens, backpacks, travel bags, and even helmets. If you wanted to, you could outfit yourself completely from head to toe in only Burton clothing and equipment. That's quite a leap for a company whose first product was a wooden plank with a rope through it.

There's no telling where snowboarding would be if Jake Burton had decided on any other career. The history of Burton and the history of snowboarding are so intricately interwoven that it would be impossible to talk about one without the other. Thanks, Jake.
