Burton Custom Snowboard - The Burton Custom is the American snowboard brand's most iconic board, offering a lot of versatility and responsiveness while retaining playability for freestyle. The Custom has a slightly directional shape, with a nose a little longer than the tail to provide better flotation in powder. It offers a tonic flex but not too demanding in order to keep comfort and playability. It's really a versatile board that we enjoy riding. Shop it HERE

Burton Step On Binding - Here is the famous Step-On binding from Burton, the one that frees your feet from any stress in the instep area. Thanks to the Step-On, your boots are no longer locked in a cage and you enjoy a natural and free feeling that will make you rediscover snowboarding.Shop it HERE
