Classic shape with new-school tech hidden under the hood.
There Burton Custom is one of the true icons in snowboarding. It's been a favorite of pros and Joes alike for about two decades thanks to its versatility. The traditional camber lays down powerful turns and stomps landings, and the control gets a boost from Frostbite edges. A laundry list of tech keeps the weight down and the response way up, which helps dial in new tricks, whether it's a back three or a double cork. If you want a powerful ride for the entire mountain, the Custom just keeps getting better.
The traditional camber found on the Custom is a team favorite for its solid landings and powerful turns. The edge hold gets a boost from Frostbite edges, which places bumps in the sidecut underneath your feet, to give you even more grip. It has a mild 10mm of stance setback, for directional stability, but the twin flex means that charging switch into that big step down won't be an issue.
The lightweight Super Fly II core keeps the overall weight down to help with technical tricks. The weight is further reduced through Pro-Tip construction in the tip and tail, which knock the swing weight down for faster spins. The Squeezebox profile is thinner underneath the binding for unrestricted board feel and uninterrupted flex, and the Highlights High Voltage carbon stringers radiate out from the binding to give you more response without making the deck unnecessarily stiff. The Channel mounting system works in conjunction with EST bindings to give you unlimited setup options and a natural flex instead of dead spots under the bindings. Plus, it has a super-fast, wax absorbent WFO sintered base to keep you flying all over the mountain.

IF YOU'RE NOT FIRST, YOU'RE LAST!
I tested these boys out on the fly. My other board hadn't been waxed for a good decade (jokingly bs'ing here) and I figured I had tried every single line of Burton Customs out that I'd try the new ones out.
I strapped them through powder, rails, jumps, pipe, and found tranny through each thicket alpines of the Rocky's. I've pressed both nose and tail and slid front + back, and spun back and front on em. Can't complain, and they're verrrrrrrry responsive off jumps.
For an all-mountain/park board they handle the jibs very well. I would highly recommend these for those looking to charge groomer laps or those taking up their jump skills to the next level. I've tried each custom model from the last four years that Burton has put out, and this is their best one yet.

East coast rider switching back from hybrid rocker. Absolutely love this board, it's a monster. Haven't tried it in deep pow yet bc I use my rockered board. The custom kills hard pack and ice. Super stable at high speeds, great edge hold, and I can still butter around a bit.

Great board! Rode the whole mountain and it performed Flawlessly. The edges hold good on high-speed turns the board has snap for liftoff on jumps. I upgraded from the Burton processed last year After dog funk allow me to return it once I realized I didn't like it. Worth the investment this is what I call a ten-year Burton; I'll have this for the next decade! I ride the 158 and I'm 6 1/2 ft 165lbs and have been riding for 20 + seasons.
