We're not saying you're here to start trouble, but if there's trouble to be had all it usually needs is a little catalyst. The Burton Instigator Flat Top Snowboard is that spark you're looking for, especially if your aim is to fire up your freestyle tricks. This version of the Instigator features a Flat Top profile geared toward speedy progression and catch-free landings, and the soft flex delivers a smooth, easy turning ride. Ignite your snowboarding career and don't look back.
Flat Top™ – A flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free and loose feeling you'd expect from a rocker profile.
Personality – 0 - 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Twin Flex – The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch.
Directional – The classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.
Pro-Tip – A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
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.
Squeezebox Low – With an overall easier feel, Squeezebox Low brings high-end core profiling technology to the progressing rider. Stiffer zones just outside your feet create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail, while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. The end result is more control with less effort from the rider.
Biax™ Fiberglass – Gives the board a jib and park friendly feel by softening the torsional flex.
Extruded Base – Speed, strength, and graphical pop in a base that requires little maintenance. Pass your friends without even waxing.
Cruise Control Tune – A catch-free edge tune that combines with rocker with increased bevel to help new riders progress, and good riders get even better.
Super Sap® Epoxy – A resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board.
Infinite Ride™ – This Burton-exclusive technology allows maximized 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 Flat Top, Flying V™, 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.
The Channel® Mounting System – Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable -- The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton's).
Channel Inserts Included – Channel Inserts are required to mount your bindings. Inspect packaging before disposing.
