We got the Burton Lipstick snowboard. What you're looking at here is super high end, kill it all freestyle women's snowboard from Burton. Featuring a bunch of their new technology on it. Starting off you got the channel. The channel, as always, is gonna be best mated up with an EST snowboard binding. You get way better dampening, stance adjustability, snowboard feel, snowboard flex is truer, they're lighter weight, I could keep going. If you get the snowboard, get the EST snowboard binding, trust me. Molotovs look really sick on this, just so you know.
From there you got the V rocker. Cool thing about the V rock is most of the rocker will be in between the snowboard bindings so when you're rocking flat base on hard-pack icy conditions or say you're doing 50-50's on rails or boxes, the snowboards really stable. Right underneath the snowboard binding position there will be a pressure distribution edge which is a slight bowing of the snowboard edge. It's almost impossible to see with your naked eye, but what that does is it provides extra snowboard binding points of contact here and here on top of the existing ones here and here. Way better grip on icy hard-pack terrain. Way better grip going up a pipe wall. Just a really cool technology that Burton's doing.
You've got a side-wall construction. Kind of the women's version of a 10-45. Two different angles, one to put a lot of meat over the edge but then one that's more drastic at the top to reduce the weight of the snowboard.
On the base, you're looking at a centered base, di-cut graphics, really clean lines, really poppy. The centered base is gonna hold a lot of wax, it's gonna be fast and it will get faster throughout the life of the snowboard. Other than that, this one will have their infinite ride process built into it. They've built it up and stick it in a machine that simulates about 2-3 years of usage and it maintains its flex throughout the life of the snowboard. Really viable technology that actually does work.
You've got the pro-tip, nice meaty sidewall going into a really thin profile nose and tail. That's going to allow it to be lighter for its swingweight. It's going to be more forgiving in the contact area. Just a really cool construction whose main purpose is to save weight.
You have a super-ply two wood core. Really high end wood core, very lightweight, but it also creates a really poppy snowboard. Definitely one of their nicer cores they put into the women's snowboards. Lipstick has just been crushing it. These things won't make it past Christmas. This is definitely in the top two of the snowboards we got in the shop. If you want to get on one, you better do it quick. Burton Lipstick snowboard.
