One-stick quiver? Get the 2016 Burton Custom Flying V. Combining rocker between your feet and at the nose and tail, with frostbite camber sections under your feet, you get it all – friendly forgiveness around the resort with float in pow, and precise control and edge hold on groomers and hard pack. This version is stiffened up with 45 degree carbon highlights so that your board will hold on while your ripping tight turns. Slimmed down with Pro-Tip where the nose and tail are thinned slightly, reducing weight.
BEND: Flying V™
The best bend/camber for someone who wants everything from your board. Rocker in between your feet and at the tips and tail make sure you won't catch edges and that you get much better float in powder. Casmber under you bindings make sure you still have good edge grip on groomers.
Set back just a touch so you get slighly better freeride performance. If you mainly ride park and take off switch 50% of the time, then there is the Custom Twin flying V.
This board will react the same way on the nose and tail so you are sure when oyu land jumps or ride switch that the board is 100% predictable.
CORE: FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core with Dualzone™ EGD™ and Squeezebox
A super light wood core that has an amazingly low swing weight thanks to the Squeezebox core profiling. This also maxamises the board feel under your bindings while mainting strength in the core where you need it.
FIBERGLASS: 45° Carbon Highlights
One of the most technical high end glass layups Burton use. Unsures maximum torsional strength and heaps of pop in the tip and tail. Edge grip on icy days in ensured and lively flex will keep you smiling all day long.
BASE: Sintered WFO
The WFO bas is a wax infused sintered base that will not only make sure you beat eyeryone on the flats, but stay fast all day long.
FEATURES: The Channel™
The best and most adjustable mounting system out there. Also means that your board comes with a 3 year warranty!
In Australia we get a lot of ICY days so this feature is for you. Your edge is extended right where your toe and heels are to give a much greater edge hold in exactly the right place.
Lower profile tip and tail mean the swing weight is reduced and the board feels light and shorter over all. This = MORE FUN!
Imagine a world where your board never loses the feel it had on day 1.... Oh my lord, Burton has come up with a tech that means the snowboard is put through a flexing machine in the factory that means it will never become a noodle and lose it's pop.

KEY FEATURE: 45° CARBON HIGHLIGHTS

REVIEW BY STAFF MEMBER rating - 9/10
There is a good reason the 2016 Burton Custom Flying V is so popular. It really is the one board quiver that will handle anything you can throw at it. Sure there is other speciality boards that can do other things better in certain conditions but I really don't think there is any other snowboard out there that will handle every style of riding and snow conditions as the custom flying v 2016. On hard pack the custom holds a good edge and has more pop than you would expect. For me a good flying-v board will ride as much like regular camber on hard pack as possible. In this department the custom flying v doesn't disappoint. The board feels light and stable at all times while maintaining a fun and playful character when you don't feel like going full speed. Off jumps it felt good. The only down side of flying v is when you lad on the tail, there is nothing to pull you back forward. In powder the 2016 Custom Flying V really excels as the EST mounting system allows you to easily set your bindings back to give you more nose and less tail to sink back in the pow. The flying-v shape really allows you make mistakes in the powder and recover easily. I really believe you could ride your regular size of all mountain board in this and easily ride deep pow without any trouble. Overall, this is a great snowboard and in Australia is a great price compared to its competition. This snowboard is definitely worth considering if you want just one board to ride everywhere and everything on.
