2013 Burton S Rocker Technology

S Rocker is the next best thing since sliced bread. Well, maybe since Rocker… It’s the real deal. For float through powder while maintaining speed, stability and powder, S Rocker is the way to go. As turns were made and word spread, it’s popularity has gone through the roof in the past year. Why? Because it’s a totally fun. Plain and simple.

Here’s a quick scenario on why you need S Rocker. You get off the gondi at the top of the mountain. You slip into the trees to catch some freshies. You’re riding and riding and riding for about a half hour having the time of your life. You haven’t gotten stuck in snow and you’re snowboard seems to be surfing the snow. And then it’s time to dip back onto a groomer to get down to the lift. Hmm…now you’re board isn’t so fun. It’s just not digging into turns as deep as you’d like. That old dude on skis just passed you. With camber beneath the bindings and a kicked up nose, you can float through powder in the trees and really drive into turns when you’re on groomers. The added camber also drastically helps you maintain speed and stability in deep snow and variable conditions. Make sense? It’s really the best of both worlds and we’re pretty certain that you’ll dig the Freebird, Spliff, Barracuda, Fish and Fishuit as much as we do.

S Rocker offers a spring loaded blend of camber and rocker that’s freeride focused for maximum speed and float. Entry rocker extends from the nose to under your front foot, then transitions to camber between your feet. Compressing the camber causes the entry rocker to naturally lift the nose, thus improving float while maintaining momentum and stability through deep driving pow turns and variable conditions.
