Description

You know what they say about people with big feet … big boards.

It's the same old award-winning Burton Custom Flying V, just in a wider package for those who want the same Custom performance without the toe drag. Flying V profile and twin shape make the Custom ready to tackle the entire mountain, no matter how freakishly huge your feet are.

  • Flying V hybrid profile offers rocker float and playfulness, while a touch of camber under the feet adds edge control, added pop, and power through turns
  • Triax fiberglass gives a versatile flex and response for all-mountain performance
  • Lightning Bolts energy transfer strand radiate outward from under your feet to make the board feel more responsive without making it stiffer
  • Frostbite edges extend slightly beneath your bindings to provide increased edge-hold in icy conditions
  • Super Fly II uses lighter and stronger woods to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight
  • True twin shape lets you dial in your switch tricks
  • Wide waist width accommodates bigger feet without fear of toe drag
  • Extra-absorbent sintered WFO base is infused with a specially formulated wax for a durable base that stays fast all season long
  • Infinite Ride process consists of Burton overbuilding the board, and then breaking it in at the factory, for a ride that stays crisp and poppy season after season
  • Pro-Tip uses a thinner tip and tail for reduced swing weight
  • 10:45 sidewalls are extra beefy for bomber impact protection
  • The Channel allows you to micro-adjust you stance over a greater length and an infinite range

I'm 6'2, 200lbs.
would I be better off with a 162 cm or a 169 cm?

Best Answer Responded on

If you ride a lot of big mountain and powder you should think about the 169cm. if you ride the groomers go with the 162cm. hope this helps

Tried and true for the bigger boots

One of the longest lasting boards in the Burton line. There is a reason the Custom FV continues to be the top choice for riders who ride all over the mountain. The versatility of the Flying V shape allows you to ride in all conditions - from powder to groomers, park laps to backcountry lines.

YES.

I say YES (no, not YES the board manufacturer).

If you have 11.5+ size feet, chances are you've experience that unspeakably annoying part of a powdery traverse where everyone blows by you as you're one-footing it and fogging up your shit. Well, no more.

First off, this board is light. I'm not sure if that's a worry in the durability department, but most people aren't going to challenge the average snowboard's integrity for quite a few years, so that's pretty much a non-issue. Second, there is no skimping on the waistband. You can ride this board 5cm shorter than your average regular-camber normal-width board and still float WAY better in powder. Also, there is usually an assumption that wide boards are annoyingly stiff compared to their regular counterparts. I personally like to ride flexy boards, and while this is no park pickle, it's also not a steep-and-deep only fence post. The flex is there when you need it, and that's all you can ask.

One potentially annoying thing is the Burton proprietary binding mount system, which is not compatible with a lot of older bindings. Check your base plates to make sure that you can mount up on the single-track system if you have binders from say... 2008 or earlier. Or, just check them anyways.

I loved this board. It can easily be your one-stick quiver.
