    Burton Instigator 2018 / 2019 Snowboard

    ALL TERRAIN PERFORMANCE AT A BARGAIN PRICE

    Burton launched the Instigator last season, and in no time at all, it very quickly became one of the best-selling entry priced boards on the market. Its combination of all-terrain versatility, excellent performance and stunning value for money made it a no-brainer for riders looking to purchase their first set up. Built around a tapered directional shape with Flat Top profile and Cruise Control edges, the Instigator has been designed to make progressing your riding skills super easy. However, thanks to the class-leading design and construction, this is one board that's not going to feel out of sorts as you riding progresses. The Instigator is available as board only or as a great value package with Burton's Freestyle Binding.

    Rider Profile
    Beginner to intermediate riders who are looking for a versatile and easy going board to develop their riding skills.

    Shape Overview
    The Instigator utilises a versatile directional shape with 5mm of taper. This classic snowboard shape is designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the back while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition. The tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow floatation.

    Profile
    As the Instigator is all about that balance of performance, versatility and easy going nature, Burton fit it with their Flat Top profile. This places a flat profile between the feet meaning improved stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet; this gives a reassuring catch-free ride combined with a looser more forgiving feeling you'd expect from rocker. To help the Instigator to deliver an even more predictable and catch free ride, Burton also add their Cruise Control Tune. This catch-free edge tune combines with rocker to help new riders progress, and good riders get even better.

    Construction
    As the Instigator is all about delivering that easy going and forgiving all-terrain ride, Burton uses a combination of modern technology and traditional construction. Heading this up is the advanced FSC™ Certified Super Fly® 800G Core with Dualzone™ EGD™. This state of the art wood core uses utilises dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance. Now to dial in the perfect easy-going flex, the core is re-profiled with Squeezebox Low. This creates Stiffer zones just outside the feet creating a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. Now to give the Instigator its more forgiving ride it utilises bi-ax glass structural layers. These deliver a playful torsionally soft flex that makes learning a breeze.

    Base
    To deliver great performance with minimal effort or maintenance, the Instigator utilises Burton's Extruded Base.
