The Custom X is Burtons most aggressive board for this season, that going to give you power, precision and speed. Due to the stiff flex in the board this is best suited for intermediated to advanced riders, who enjoy all aspect of mountain riding. This board has a directional shape, the extra length at the nose gives it extra lift when riding over powder. Although the Custom X is directional, it has twin flex which means the nose and tail behave the same. So, you can take this board to the park and ride switch no problem.
The camber profile on the Custom X is a traditional camber that is going to give you lots of stability when you're powering down a straight line. The Camber shape will give you faster edge to edge transition and will make the board feel move lively under your feet. To take your speed to the next level, the Custom X has a Sintered WFO base which has waxed infused deep into the board. This base is a much tougher base than an extruded base and will give you a faster glide, there are more expensive to repair if you get a ding.
The core uses FSC certified Dragonfly 600G, which is a lightweight wood. The core has an impact zone along it so that the wood can remain lightweight without sacrificing strength. Opposite the channels on the toe edge and heel edge, the wood grain is at a 90 ° angle to the rest of the core. This helps to drive the power from your feet to the edges to give you more precision and control, whilst also increasing the cores strength. Throughout the construction of the core a squeezebox profile has been used, which is a combination of thicker and thinner sections within the board. This creates stiffer sections to increase power and more flexible sections. The Squeezebox core makes the board feel snappier when riding and is easier to control.
The Custom X has a full carbon layer and carbon strands within the fiberglass which keeps the boards overall weight down, whilst also adding lots of life to the board. The 45° fiberglass with carbon creates an aggressive ride, ideal for people who prefer a stiffer board for charging down the maintain and backcountry.
The frostbite edge was created by Burton to improve the edge to edge hold. The edges jolt out beneath your bindings to bite into the hardpack snow/ ice and give you a solid hold so you can ride with confidence that you won’t slip out. Custom X has been through Burtons Infinite Ride process, which is when the board is compressed and broken in by a machine. This gives you a consistent flexible feel from the first run of the day
To sum up the Custom X, it’s a stiffer board that is built for speed and precision. If you enjoy a sturdy board that gives you the control and confidence on icy terrain than the Custom X could be a good git. Although the board is an aggressive ride, the squeezebox profile creates flexible points for a more poppy feel.
