    Instigator Snowboard

    We've all been there at one point in our shred life, learning to link heel-to-toeside carves, only to catch an edge and painfully tumble to the demise of our backsides and ego. But don't worry, Burton has your back with the beginner-friendly Instigator Snowboard. This easy-riding board features a softer flex for near-effortless turn initiation, coupled with a Cruise Control Tune that reduces the chance of catching an edge while linking up turns. This specific edge tune lessens the catch at the tip and tail contacts, meaning you'll be able to confidently link carves without it bucking you off-balance with the slightest misalignment of edge pressure.

    The Instigator is built off Burton's Flat Top profile, which is entirely flat along its effective edge (i.e. edge that contacts the snow) for a predictable and stable platform while learning to carve and picking up speed. The tip and tail feature a bit of rocker to eliminate the contact points from snagging on the snow while you're linking up turns. Rocker also makes the Instigator inherently more playful while freestyle riding, should you bring your rapidly progressing skills to the park. Moreover, the Instigator has a directional twin shape, meaning the nose is a bit longer than the tail for better stability and easier float in fresh powder.

    • All-around board that's essentially a cheat code for learning
    • Flat Top profile limits edge catch with a flat effective edge
    • Directional twin shape encourages proper turns without limiting you
    • Soft flex allows for easier turn initiation and board manipulation
    • Superfly 800G core is durable and responsive for a reliable ride
    • Extruded bases can take a beating to keep you riding day after day
    • Channel system creates great board feel and no dead spots in the flex
    • Item #BUR02X8
