Burton Method Snowboard Review
The Burton Method is part of the Heli package and tier of the Burton series. This is top of the line. It has UltraMeth construction. This is the ultimate riding machine. The research and development department at Burton pretty much had no end to what they could do. They put their brains together. They explored exotic materials, and this is what they came up with. It has a field rating of a 5, right in the middle, that’s great. But this board is for the advanced rider who wants the top of the line stuff. This is pretty much the Ferrari of the snowboard world. It has a spring-loaded flying V Rocker shape, camber underneath the feet, reverse camber or V Rock in between the bindings, and reverse camber on the nose and on the tail. The Method is a directional shaped board that has a twin-flex. The tail’s going to be a little bit shorter than the nose. It does have an AlumaFly core with multi-zone EGD and a negative profile. Inside you have an aluminum honeycomb that is 90% air by volume. This is stiff and light. The fiberglass is very unique. It’s called the S-2 Method skin and it has carbon I-beams. You’ll see inside those carbon I-beams. It’s pretty much the backbone of this board, those carbon I-beams are with the S-2 Method skin. The base material is a space-age Teflon, but no one else is doing that. Teflon is possibly the world’s most slick surface that they put on pots and pans. They also put it on the base of snowboards and I don’t think any other company is doing it besides Burton. The edges have the frost bite edges. So underneath the bindings, the edges are actually going to extend out just a little bit. Other than that, they have the 360 wrap, grip and ride edges. The sidewalls are pretty interesting as well. They’re called slim walls. They’re not cap walls, but they are kind of similar. They are going to hold up and they lose a lot of materials using the slim walls. The tips and the tails also have what’s called a ProTip. The materials in the tip and the tail have been reduced to reduce the amount of weight and swing-weight as well. And you won’t have to worry about breaking in the Burton Method because it is an Infinite Ride board. There is a machine at Burton that breaks it in for you and you won’t have to. This is the Burton method and it’s the ultimate riding machine. You can’t get any more high-tech or light-weight than Burton Method unless your talking about the new Burton Myster.
