PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT IS IN OUR BLOOD. WE LOVE IT. OBSESSING OVER EVERY DETAIL, TWEAKING, TESTING, AND ALWAYS IMPROVING. IT’S SOMETHING WE CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT. ROOTED IN INNOVATION, COLLABORATION, AND FEEDBACK FROM RIDERS, WE CONTINUE THE LEGACY OF JAKE BURTON CARPENTER AND MINE77.
RIDER DRIVEN SINCE 1977
Scroll back in time to learn more about Jake’s product-obsessed journey that ultimately created Burton Burton MINE77.
Jake Burton Carpenter was all about sharing the joy of snowboarding with everyone. That legacy continues with the newest winter collection complete with the Ring Leader snowboard. It combines the legendary Feelgood and Custom into a gender-neutral design that knows no boundaries.
The MINE77 crew continues Jake’s vision with a uniquely technical winter collection. Innovative thinking includes a fully waterproof floral embroidery on a 3L GORE-TEX anorak and pant—a massive challenge to pull off, but Jake would be proud of the finished product.
As part of the deep winter collection, we paid tribute to two of the greatest pioneers of all time—Craig Kelly and Jake! These two friends devoted their lives to snowboarding and honoring them on the CK Nug re-release and EST STEP ON® Binding only seemed fitting.
Japan’s snowboarding heritage left a deep impression on Jake and Timi. The winter collection draws a connection to their shared experiences with art inspired by a Japanese tie-dye technique called Shibori.
Rather than wait until December, Timi Burton and the team do an early release of streetwear pieces from the MINE77 Winter Collection to get fans fired up for the cold months ahead.
In addition to uniquely technical and innovative apparel, the spring/summer collection includes custom printed camping pieces in collaboration with Helinox along with a Channel Islands M20 surfboard.
The deep winter collection includes a first for burton: 18 one-of-a-kind backseat drivers, each with its own unique graphic by dean blotto gray. Blotto's original painting included with each board.
With Jake’s youngest son Timi at the helm, MINE77 goes global for the first time ever with a line of uniquely technical products that are rooted in innovation, collaboration, and feedback from riders.
Continually incorporating the feedback of others. The result is a very personal collection that’s been thoroughly tested, refined... Dialed.
