Burton Family Tree Skeleton Key Snowboard

A directional utility tool designed to unlock the full spectrum of freeride terrain

An offspring of a one-night stand between the Con Artist and Flight Attendant, the NEW Skeleton Key has quickly become a staple in the quivers of our testers and team riders. From Japan-deep pow to Baker’s legendary banks, this uniquely hard-charging directional shape fuses camber with a slightly increased waist width that carves like a knife. Hand shaped at Craig’s in Vermont.

Directional Camber

Directional Camber

Entry rocker causes the nose to lift while camber under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions.

Shape
Directional Shape

Directional Shape

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 condition.

10MM Taper

10MM Taper

A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. Look for different amounts of taper throughout the line.

Flex
Directional Flex

Directional Flex

This flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.

Core
FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core

FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core

Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.

Dualzone™ EGD™

Dualzone™ EGD™

Engineered wood grains for more edge-hold, response, and strength.

The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength.

Fiberglass
Triax™ Fiberglass

Triax™ Fiberglass

Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.

Base
Recycled Sintered WFO Base

Recycled Sintered WFO Base

Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season in any condition.

Mounting
The Channel™

The Channel™

Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable—The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton’s). Better yet, all boards with The Channel are fully covered by a 3-year warranty. This means that if you have any issue with any part of the board, even if The Channel is in mint condition, you are covered.

Features
Squeezebox

Squeezebox

Profiled core for easier board control, more energy, and pop.

Our most versatile Squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate.

Balanced Freeride Geometry

Balanced Freeride Geometry

Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry on the Landlord, Landlord Split, Flight Attendant, NEW Gate Keeper, High Spirits, and Anti-Social ends the debate with setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.

Pro-Tip™

Pro-Tip™

A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

Super Sap® Epoxy

Super Sap® Epoxy

Super Sap® is a resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board, which is good in our book.

Infinite Ride™

Infinite Ride™

This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
