Burton Elite Series Snowboards
The Elite Series is designed for the beginner to low intermediate snowboard who is looking to learn and improve on a quality board. The reduced bevel (now 1.25mm) and new variable flex pattern of the Elite make it an wasy board to turn and learn the basics on. The Elites also feature our new core and outside laminates which decrease vibration and increase binding strength by as much as 400% over last year’s models. Now available with Fastex or buckle bindings.
Burton Elite 140 Snowboard
The Burton Elite 140 Snowboard is now designed specifically for the rider under 130 pounds (60 kilos). We have tightened the stance and significantly loosened the flex pattern on these board to make it ideal for smaller and lighter riders. The addition of a swallow tail and forward placement of the bindings also contribute towards making the new Elite 140 the ultimate performing snowboard for its rider profile.
Rider Profile – Beginner to low intermediate, lightweight rider who wants a high performance snowboard for the use on a variety of snow conditions from hardpack and ice to fresh powder.

Burton Elite 150 Snowboard
The Burton Elite 150 Snowboard is now a snowboard that entry level riders over 130 pounds (60 kilos) can both learn and excel on. With the increased flexibility, especially in the nose of the board, the 150 can now handle bumps and powder with ease. The board is still beefy enough, however, to carve solid turns on bulletproof hardpack. The responsiveness and versatility of the Elite 150 are what made it ideal for the inexperienced rider.
Rider Profile – Beginner to low intermediate snowboarder who wants a board that will not only be easy to learn on, but will be capable of handling difficult terrain in any snow condition once the rider has learned the fundamentals.
