Men's Burton Free Thinker Snowboard

Expand your perspective with Danny Davis’ new take on poppy and pow-friendly ride-anything performance.

The Burton Free Thinker is a true twin spin on Danny Davis’ go-to for hot laps in the park, pipe, or mobbing side hits across the mountain. The unique shape opens up the possibilities for creative expression in any direction, while the control of camber keeps it quick and poppy. 45° Carbon Highlights deliver snap without the stiff side effects. To top it off, the Free Thinker is done up with the creative touch of legendary skater and artist, Mark Gonzales.

Camber

Camber

An advocate of powerful turns and poppy precision, camber speaks to the core values of board design. Offering a snappy suspension, camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail.

Shape
Twin Shape

Twin Shape

Perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it.

Flex
Twin Flex

Twin Flex

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

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
45° Carbon Highlights

45° Carbon Highlights

Carbon Highlights optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 60° fiber angle creates a highly maneuverable and playful feel, while a 45° fiber angle provides a more aggressive ride. Hi-Voltage models like the Antler, Custom X, and Custom X Flying V include the addition of carbon strands to the angled fiber layers to add life and further reduce weight.

Base
Sintered WFO Base

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.

Frostbite Edges

Frostbite Edges

Introduced by Burton long before all the hype about wavy “serrated knife” edges, Frostbite extends out slightly beneath your bindings for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions. Powerful when you need them, playful when you don’t, Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining smooth, flowing, and forgiving.

Super Sap® Epoxy

Super Sap® Epoxy

Featured on all Family Tree models, 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.

Pro-Tip™

Pro-Tip™

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

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 Flat Top, Flying V™, 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.
