Snowboard Burton Flight Attendant

Note: The actual colour of the board's base may be different than the one shown on the picture. Brands make them randomly.

The Flight Attendant is an ode to nature, designed to take you to the most remote spots of the mountain. It will help you discover or re-discover the joys of off-piste snowboarding. It is a freeride board in its purest form. 

What can the Burton Flight Attendant snowboard do? 

The Flight Attendant is a freeride-oriented snowboard loaded with all-terrain performance. Featuring a traditional camber, a long rockered nose and a directional shape, it gives focus on manoeuverability. Indeed, a rockered profile makes turn entries a lot easier and enhances steering in general, making it smoother. Rockered boards are also more forgiving and more playful when thrown on powder. On the other hand, the camber keeps the power intact and maximises the edge control. It increases the board’ stability as well and delivers stronger energy returns which is quite handy when you want to keep accelerating out of turns. This camber coupled with a firm flex pattern makes the board ideally suited for carving at full speed on groomers. In short, we have here an ultra versatile snowboard that works on hard and soft snow equally well. A real multitasker for freedom seekers. 

Who is the Burton Flight Attendant snowboard designed for? 

This is great Burton board (another one!) perfectly suited for good riders looking for a board that can perform on any terrain. Powerful and precise, the Flight Attendant actually feels easier to steer than what you’d expect.

Structure - Construction

  • Carbon I-Beam™  :

    This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.

  • Dualzone™ EGD™  :

    The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength.

  • Triax fiberglass  :

    Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.

  • FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core  :

    Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.

  • Squeezebox  :

    Squeezebox is a patent-pending technology that transfers energy outward from under your feet, energizing the tip and tail for added snap when exiting a turn and ollieing. Thinner core sections underfoot transition to thicker, more powerful areas between and outside your feet for a more stable board that can be powered up and manipulated with less effort.

Shape - Sidecuts

  • Directional shape  :

    Classic shape for a versatile use. The nose is slightly longer than the tail.

Rocker - Camber

  • Directionnal Camber  :

    Directional camber and with rocker at the nose allows for a much shorter and more maneuverable board

Other

  • Balanced Freeride Geometry  :

    Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry end the debate with setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.

  • Directional flex  :

    This versatile flex enhances tail's pop and stiffens the nose for a better control on all terrains.

  • Infinite Ride™  :

    This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.

  • Pro-Tip™  :

    A tapered Tip and Tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

  • Sintered WFO Base  :

    Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season in any condition.

  • The Channel  :

    Now on more boards and evolved for greater performance, The ChannelM6 has staked its claim as snowboarding’s most direct connection. Focusing power through a central connection that acts as a backbone for the board’s internal tech, it also lets you easily micro-adjust your stance width and angles with all binding formats including EST™, Re:Flex™, and Disc. The upgrade to M6 means Burton is now using a standardized hardware size that improves upon performance and ease-of-use, and allows for compatibility with select competitor bindings, making it a choice for any rider.

Snow Binding Burton Mission EST Black

The Burton Mission is the binding that sums them all up. Standing in a mid-range price point, you get the best money to performance to quality ratio. The EST version is a slight upgrade of the standard version and features a soft baseplate allowing the board to flex more naturally which gives riders a better feel on the snow. The Mission binding is an excellent pick for those who want something reliable and efficient. 

What can the Burton Mission EST Black snowboard binding do? 

Sportier and more powerful than a Custom and cheaper than a Genesis, the Mission is the right in-between. Featuring a solid construction offering snap energy transfers and strong support, coupled with ergonomic straps bringing hold and comfort together, the Mission stands like a great freerider. This means you can crank up the speed and ride harder, the binding will handle it easy. You can even go for a park run where you’ll enjoy the lateral mobility to tweak your tricks and improve your freestyle game. 

Who is the Burton Mission EST Black snowboard binding designed for? 

If you are a talented rider and you’re looking for a good value for money, the Mission EST is a safe pick. Versatile, the binding delivers comfort and performance everywhere and seems to have no weakness.

Baseplate - Chassis

  • 30% Short-Glass/Nylon  :

    Slightly more responsive yet still plenty playful.

  • Baseplate construction EST  :

    By removing the materials from beneath your feet and replacing them with cushioning, Burton are able to drastically reduce weight and explore entirely new designs. With EST®, the possibilities for flex and feel are infinite, and so are the stance options. Get it all without ever sacrificing the edge-to-edge power you know and trust.

  • SensoryBED™  :

    Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort,reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control. Featured on the Malavita, Cartel™, Escapade™, Lexa, and NEW Mission Re:Flex™.

Highback

  • Canted Living Hinge™  :

    This exclusive technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.

  • DialFLAD™  :

    The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing like Keegan. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, check out the tool-free DialFLAD™ and MicroFLAD™ systems that give you twice the options of our traditional FLAD.

  • Single-Component Hi-Back  :

    The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Through material blends we then manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive.

  • Spoiler Zero Forward Lean  :

    Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the NEW Zero Forward Lean design on select hi-backs. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls.

Straps - Buckles

  • Smooth Glide™ Buckles  :

    Polished, chrome-plated aluminum and lightweight polycarbonate levers give you season after season of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power. Designed and built by us, not some shady supplier.
