It's pretty safe to say, when you think kids snowboards you think of super-soft low-end boards that verge on being just a toy. Well, that's all well and good if you're just coming into the sport, but if you're one of that new generation of rider that is taking kids snowboarding to the next level, then those boards just won't be able to hack it. Step forward the new Protest.
Taking inspiration from Burton full size range, this high-performance freestyle board combines high-quality materials and top end construction to create a true high-performance board that will push your riding to a whole new level.
Built around a fully twin tip chassis it gives the ultimate in freestyle balance and control, whilst still delivering great performance over the whole mountain. However what steps this board up a level is that Burton have ignored the kids board status quo and have gone with a traditional camber profile. This steps up power and response and delivers a level of pop that gives you the tools to really step up your game, delivering bigger air's and a more stable and reassuring ride.
Internally the lightweight super flight 800G wood core and Tri-Ax glass structural layers give great pop through the length as well as stepping up torsional flex ensuring that no matter how hard you push, the Protest just won't let you down. But Burton haven't forgotten the Process is going to be ridden by lighter riders, so to ensure that it never feels like it's too stiff, they profile the core with their innovative Fillet-O-Flex milling. This reduces the thickness of the core allowing the board to flex perfectly without having to resort to overall soft flex.
Finally the high-end sintered base gives a super fast gripe and really allows you to maximise your potential.
