Burton Name Dropper -

The Burton Name Dropper is a whole different approach to building a park board. It features an asymmetrical core, edges, and flex for an ergonomically correct ride. Burton also milled out the core to make the deck as thin as possible. That gives the board a soft, even flex and a ridiculously playful feel. Do you see those black panels at the binding mount points? Those add thickness so you can mount your bindings normally, because the rest of the board is too thin for normal binding mounts. Of course, the Name Dropper uses Burton's revolutionary Channel System, which provides an infinite number of angles so you can get your stance exactly right. The underfoot panels also provide a bit of damping to smooth out the rough stuff and take the majority of the shock out of hard landings. The Name Dropper's profile is flat between and under the bindings with rocker at the tip and tail. This adds to the board's playful feel while it adds to your confidence on rails, boxes, and even in the air. How good is it? The Name Dropper is the proud recipient of the Transworld Good Wood 2014 award. That's pretty damn good.

If you are shopping for a men's snowboard that offers flexibility as well as peak performance, consider the Name Dropper from Burton. Its Flat Top and Filet-O-Flex features provide extraordinary balance and flexibility to slice through deep powder. Just the same, this affordable men's snowboard boasts Off-Axis alignment that makes take-off seem effortless regardless of the insanity of the maneuver. Couple that with the Name Dropper's infinite ride factory tuning, and you'll find your board broken in before you make it up the chairlift. Gliding will seem like floating, aboard its Sintered Base. This board from Burton is indeed a name to drop.

Burton loved its new freestyle board so much, it couldn't wait until 2015 to release it. The Burton Name Dropper Snowboard has a softer flex that is playful enough to butter and jib in the park, and features Filet-O-Flex technology, meaning that it has a thin profile but still doesn't sacrifice durability or performance. The Triax fiberglass laminate flexes with and protects your board, while the Superfly II wood core offers strength in the necessary places, and it gives this board a super light feel that is fun to play around on. Off-Axis Frostbite Edges hold tightly to the snow, no matter the conditions, while the Off-Axis Squeezebox core shape puts pop in all the right spots and transfers under-foot energy to for a snappier, stable feel. Drop into your favorite chute or play around on the perfect kicker with the Burton Name Dropper Snowboard under your feet.

Create your own story lines with the legend of the Burton® Name Dropper!
Twin shape and flex is perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that is equally versatile when ridden regular or switch.
Flat Top is extra stable underfoot with the forgiving feel of rocker at the tip and tail, while Off-Axis Filet-O-Flex creates a softer park-tuned feel without sacrificing an ounce of stability, durability, or kicker-crushing snap.
Super Fly II™ core places stronger and lighter wood in specific areas of the core providing snap, strength and reduced weight for uncompromised board feel and response with Dualzone™ EGD™ in which the wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for superior edge hold and added durability.
Sintered Base is ultra-durable and highly porous. Superior wax absorption delivers greater overall glide.
Dual Density Triax™ Fiberglass from tip to tail adds strength and snap without sacrificing weight-savings.
Off-Axis Frostbite Edges offer tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions - powerful when you need them, playful when you don't.
Features a Pro-Tip™ with tapered tip and tail thickness to reduce swing weight for easier mobility.
™ allows for maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you.

Burton Name Dropper Review:

Purchased and you should to!
This board is wonderful, soft and playful but still able to boost off the big boy booters.
Reverse camber makes it playful and forgiving on snow and rails. This board features a fully asymmetrical build meaning your toe edge is different then your heel edge, We all edge different on the toe edge then we do on the heels. To make it so it doesn't chatter at high speeds, they milled the core out under your feet and filled with a dense dampening material (fillet of flex).
I enjoy riding softer boards for many reasons, though hitting big jumps with a noodle is a terrible idea! the photo above shows this! haha. couldn't hold its edge up the lip and released putting my ass into the lip. Thats why camber and or stiffer boards are a bit better
