Burton Skeleton Key Snowboard 2018

STRAIGHT OUTTA THE BACKYARD BONEYARD

 

Last year, Burton finally dropped the Skeleton Key as a special edition board that they had been crafting and perfecting for years. After just one season, it received pretty much every accolade a snowboard can win, and immediately cemented itself as one for the ages. This year it’s officially back as a permanent fixture in Burton’s line, so if you missed out last year you’ve still got a shot. 10mm of taper and camber loaded into the backseat of the board makes this geared for powder perfection. Not to anyone’s surprise, of course, the Skeleton Key still rips on hard snow and you won’t feel any shame spending an afternoon with it shredding groomers. Trees and powder though is where this board’s legend was created and it’s easy to see why. A huge rocker nose gives it incredible float, and the short tail is great for snapping quick turns between trees. There’s a reason it was one of the most desirable snowboards in the world last year, and now its back for a repeat performance. Pick up the Burton Skeleton Key and unlock every single door on the mountain!

FAQ

What’s the difference between the Skeleton Key and the Flight Attendant

The Skeleton Key and Flight Attendant are kind of like that pair of twin brothers you know that are always arguing about which one is older. They’re very similar in a lot of ways, and both going to do really well in big mountain riding. However, there are some subtle differences that set them apart. While both are directional boards with the same amount of taper (10mm), the Skeleton Key is shaped like a true directional board while the Flight Attendant is still going to flex like a twin. This will allow to Skeleton Key to float a bit more in powder. The other minimal difference is that Carbon I-Beam Fiberglass found in the Flight Attendant will make it a bit more stiff and aggressive than the Skeleton Key, once again making the Skeleton Key a bit better for powder while the Flight Attendant will be a bit better for all-mountain performance. 

Construction

Directional Camber -  Rocker/Camber keeps the nose on the surface for epic flotation while the camber under the backf oot provides the power and stability that will drive through all situations.

The Channel - A channel replaces traditional mounting inserts within the board for free form adjusting that is not restricted by a 3 degree mounting plate. This system also allows the board to flex naturally and reduces overall weight.

Core

FSC Certified Super Fly II 700g Core - A blend of stronger and lighter woods in specific locations that allows the board to have big performance with non of the weight.

Burton Skeleton Key FSC Certified Super Fly II 700g Core

Dualzone EDG - Wood grain is positioned perpendicular in two continuous zones at the toe and heel edges for added strength and edge hold.

Shape

Directional - Classic snowboard shape with a longer nose, shorter tail, and 10mm of taper keeps this board afloat effortlessly.

Reinforcements

Squeezebox - Thicker core sections paired with thinner sections lets the board flex where you want it while maintaining massive pop. 

Base/Edges

Recycled Sintered WFO - Infusing a specially formulated wax into the dense recycled sintered base material for unreal durability, speed, and performance all season long.

Additional Awesomeness

Infinite Ride - Burton exclusive technology to maxmize pop and strength by overbuilding the board. Then put into a machine that breaks in the board for you, resulting in the same feel season after season.

Pro-Tip - Tapered thickness in the tip and tail to reduce swing weight for easier rotations and overall board control.
