About Burton - In 1977, Jake Burton Carpenter founded ‘Burton Snowboards’. Thanks to the brand’s innovative products and the support provided to professional boarders, snowboarding has become an internationally recognised sport. Today Burton designs everything for the sport and the lifestyle: snowboards, boots, bindings, jacketsand more.
Burton is dedicated to snowboarders, and there’s not a single ski in its collection. Whether you’re still a beginner, love slopestyle or big air, or adore doing the craziest tricks in the half-pipe: the brand from Vermont is your partner for all your snow-white adventures. With outfits that are both breathable and waterproof, thanks to the Gore-Tex membrane that you can find throughout the collection: from trousers to gloves.
No preference for a particular style and prefer to give everything a go? Then you’ll undoubtedly know the Burton Custom: one of the most iconic boards on the market, the ultimate all-rounder. The Custom is traditionally shaped, with a slightly longer nose, making it very stable and giving a good float and pop. The Custom is always right up your street (or slope).
To be sure that we can still enjoy many more winters on the slopes and in snow parks, Burton makes sustainability a top priority. The company has set up some sustainability projects and supports quite a few others: together with Mountain Dew, for example, they are making new snow wear from recycled plastic bottles. But there’s more... They also grow their own vegetables, cycle to work and reduce the chemicals in their manufacturing process: it’s all about sustainability! Because Burton is all about riding together.
