Burton S Series Splitboard

Offering mountain goat access to the most remote stashes, the S-Series™ splitboard is the ultimate self-propelled pow slasher. In touring mode your soul will find bliss as you effortlessly glide skyward atop the snowpack. For the ride down, we sought inspiration from the legendary Supermodel™ to guarantee the board floats, spins, and slashes like a snowboard’s supposed to.

Features


* Dualzone EGD

The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for superior edge hold and added strength.
* Even Core profile

Designed for all-around performance. Creates a consistent flex and feel over the entire length of the board that balances stability and playfulness at both high and low speeds.
* Powder Fly Cores

Feature a more resilient, lighter-weight nose that when combined with the board’s tapered shape and set-back stance, promotes float and eliminates rear leg burn so you can relax when riding powder.

Glass

* Triax Response Fiberglass

Versatile flex and response that’s capable of everything from straight-line big mountain descents to mellow laps through the park.

Base

* Sintered Vision Base

Vivid graphics and improved speed, plus the durability and wax absorption our sintered bases are known for.

Sidewall

* 10:45 Sidewalls

Extra-meaty 10:45 Sidewalls use two different angles to absorb the impacts that aggressive riders dish out.

Edge Technology

* Grip & Rip Edge Tune

Our tried and true edge tune, perfect for slicing and dicing the entire mountain to pieces.

Flex

* Twin

The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch.

Feel

* 5

To help simplify things, we've assigned a single "feel" rating to each of our boards. This number is based on a variety of factors including the board’s materials, shape, tip-to-tail flex, and torsion (aka edge-to-edge rigidity). This number is based on a scale from one to ten with one being softer and more relaxed and ten being most responsive. Keep in mind that a higher number doesn't mean the board is more difficult to ride. It simply helps you compare boards within our line to determine which is best for your riding style.

OJ LoennekerFirst Splitboard

Voted 5/5

This was my first splitboard, (and the one I use most). Mine was the onlder Burton interface system that was abandoned by Burton. The interface was heavy and prone to failures (plus I think Voile sued them), but it workd for me for many years. I recently converted my older S-Series from the old burton system to a Voile system. This required a little drilling and some beer drinking to get it right. But hey, that's what Splitboarding is all about, tinkering with it and customizing stuff...
The S-Series is basically a Burton Fish that is split, and it's ride is similar.
