Harness the power.
For riders unaware of the original Custom X's aggro personality, let's just say it's not for the faint of heart—it threatens to toss you off balance with the unrelenting aggression of tip-to-tail camber matched with a highly responsive flex. Broadening its appeal to a wider variety of riders, the Burton Custom X Flying V replaces the catchy feel of camber with the catch-free personality and superior float of a Flying V profile. The reworked Custom X Flying V certainly isn't mellow or beginner-friendly, retaining the snappy-stiff flex of the original Custom X. However, it does alleviate many of the pitfalls inherent to the original version, especially for us mere mortals not possessing the scalpel-like precision and beastly strength needed to pilot the fully cambered Custom X.
The Flying V profile places generous rocker between the bindings, allowing more effortless float across deep, untracked powder. Rockered transitions at the tip and tail take the bite off the original Custom X, preventing you from unexpectedly catching an edge and tumbling down the mountain. It does retain camber underneath the bindings, allowing you to turn quickly between trees and snap off the lip of natural hits and cliff drops. Frostbite edges extend ever-so-slightly underneath the bindings, digging into variable snow and ice where rocker-dominant boards usually struggle.
State of the art is an understatement when it comes to the board's Dragonfly core. This core is lightweight without sacrificing an ounce of strength thanks to a robust yet feathery end-grain wood placed in high-impact zones. Squeezebox High core profiling lends instantaneous response and ferocious snap by placing carbon fleece into thicker zones just outside the bindings. Carbon Highlights High Voltage act as a snappy and stabilizing backbone with a tip-to-tail carbon layer and integrated carbon strands within the fiberglass matrix.
