Elevate your skills this season riding the 2018 Burton Instigator Snowboard. This directional snowboard features a longer and wider nose which works by concentrating pop in the tail while providing a more floaty and responsive ride. The Instigator is flat at center with an early rising nose and tail to give you more control, float, and responsiveness while the mellow Cruise Control edges are hard to catch. With the Instigator underfoot, there is no telling what you might do.

More Details
  • Men's 2018 Instigator Snowboard from Burton.

  • Rocker / Camber Profile:
  • Flat Top™: The board lays flat between the feet for stability and control while the nose & tail lift up just outside the feet for a catch-free and floaty ride.

  • Shape:
  • Directional [5mm taper]: The nose is slightly wider and longer than the tail to concentrate pop while enhancing float, control & precision.

  • Edges:
  • Cruise Control Tune: The edges have been de-tuned to ensure a mellow, catch-free ride.

  • Core:
  • FSC™ Certified Fly® 800G Core: A sustainable dual-species wood core with vertical laminations of alternating soft & hardwood to reduce overall weight.
  • Squeezebox Low: Stiffer core zones outside the bindings with more flex underfoot and between result in more control with less effort.
  • Dualzone™ EGD™: A strong dense wood is perpendicularly placed at the toe & heel edges to enhance grip and durability.
