Shortcut the learning curve with an all-around board that’s catch-free and easy for boosting confidence anywhere you take it. Some riders just want to get straight to the fun part. Enjoy a no-fuss feel with the Burton Instigator, a board designed to help accelerate the learning curve and instigate a good time from your first moment on the mountain. The combination of a Flat Top™ bend and Cruise Control convex base keeps things friendly underfoot, creating a catch-free feel that maintains stability and control. The Channel® mounting system gives you the easiest, most adjustable setup with bindings from all major brands (not just Burton’s).
EXTRAS: The Channel®, Cruise Control Tune, and Super Sap® Epoxy
Graphic Story: You’ve stepped to the Instigator and are ready to crank up your progression. Let the hunt for your inner snowboarding animal begin with these spooky graphics featuring headhunter trophies.
A Flat profile between the fee means stability, better balance and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for catch free, loose feeling you would expect from a rocker board.
SHAPE: Directional : The classic snowboard shape. Designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow and control to rip any terrain or conditions.
[5MM Taper] The 5 mm of taper lets the board dive into turns while releasing super smooth.
Core: FSC™ Certified Fly® 800G Core. Lightened up and loaded with pop Burton’s dual species wood core utilizes dual density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance.
Dualzone™ EGD™. the wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges to two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge hold and added strength.
Squeezebox Low : With an overall easier feel Squeezebox Low brings high end core profilling technology to the progressing rider. Stiffer zones just outside your feet create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail, while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. The end result is more control with less effort.
Biax : Jib friendly torsionally soft flex and forgiving, park friendly feel.
