With its Flat Top profile and true twin shape, the Burton Descendant snowboard is set to be a staple in parks everywhere. The flat profile mixes the forgiveness of rocker with solid landings and ollies, and the true twin shape is tailor made for all the freestylin' action you can throw its way. If you spend your days dreaming about rails, bonks, and wallrides, this is your stick.
The Descendant is built around Burton's Flat Top profile. You guessed it, that means it's flat. The upshot is you get the stability and pop of traditional camber, except that the handling is more forgiving, like a rockered board. The twin shape and flex means that the Descendant rides exactly the same switch and regular, and that means more combos. Switch back lip hard 270 out anyone?
Pro Tip construction reduces the weight of the tip and tail, for faster spins. The flex tuned Fly core keeps the weight down, the strength up, and the flex park-friendly. That works in conjunction with The Channel mounting system, which contributes to unrestricted flex, instead of causing dead spots under the bindings like traditional binding interfaces. The extruded base material holds up well to rails and jibbing, and runs fast even when you forget to wax it for a couple of days.
Save the dollars for more ramen. True twin park performance for the couch surfer's salary.
