If you're looking for a playful freestyle focused board but you still want the versatility to ride everything on the mountain then the Talent Scout might just be the board for you.
Built around a lightweight balanced twin tip shape it delivers all the control and feel that you could ever need for lapping the park and playing around on rails and boxes. However, when the rest of the mountain comes a-calling, it's got more than enough ability up its sleeves to take everything in its stride.
By utilising the versatile Pure Pop camber profile (which combines traditional camber with subtle flat zones outside the feet and low-rise rocker at the tips) the Talent Scout has all the characteristics to suit it's freestyle/all terrain credentials; floaty at the front, positive under the feet and playful and buttery when jibbing around.
To ensure that the Talent Scout lives up to its all terrain promise, Burton really don't hold back when it comes to design and construction and heading this up is the FSC certified Super Fly 700G wood core with Off Axis Squeezebox. This state-of-the-art lightweight design features an advanced profile that manipulates the thickness of the core through its length to deliver the optimum riding characteristics.
But that's not all, to ensure that it works in perfect harmony with the rider these core profiles are also offset to sit in alignment with the angle of the rider's feet, ensuring that power is transferred more efficiently and directly to where it's needed, increasing both response and stability. In addition Burton also offset the Frost Bite edge profile pushing out the edges under the feet to give a more locked-on edge hold.
Obviously with this much performance on tap you need structural layers that can take advantage of it, so the Talent Scout utilises a torsionally stiffer Tri-Ax glass which gives the board all the control and power that you could ever need. Finally, the sintered base gives a superfast glide in all conditions as well as stepping up durability.
