Burton Genie 147. 2017
Cruise the hill with confidence.
Hands down the easiest board out there, the Burton Genie is perfect for aspiring riders looking to build a foundation before moving on to a more performance-oriented deck like the Social or Feather. Like stepping on a magic carpet, the Genie silences your fears, magically teaching balance and board control from the first time you strap in. Easy Rider combines a soft, mellow flex with a convex base for a virtually-catch free riding experience, while Flat Top and a newly improved shape provide a stable platform that's effortlessly maneuverable.
For women who like to relax while they ride, with a laidback feel that’s all about catch-free stability. This will give you the confidence to take a lap through the park with the girls (or boys) and land tricks you never expected to go for.
The perfectly symmetrical Twin shape offers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it.
A flat profile, so neither Rocker nor Camber, between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling you’d expect from rocker. With a convex 'Easy Bevel' base that lifts the edges off the snow and a super soft flex, this board makes it easy to learn balance and board control.
The Twin Flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for versatility whether riding naturally or switch.
The FSC™ CERTIFIED FLY® 900G CORE is Burton's classic tip to tail wood core, constantly improved upon in terms of flex, feel, pop, and strength. With an overall easier feel, Squeezebox Low brings high-end core profiling technology to the progressing rider. Stiffer zones just outside your feet create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. The end result is more control with less effort from the rider.
BIAX™ FIBERGLASS features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex and forgiving, park-friendly feel.
The EXTRUDED BASE features speed, strength, and graphical pop that requires little maintenance. Pass your friends without even waxing.
Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable - The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton’s). In fact, Burton trusts it so much that all boards with The Channel are backed by a 3-year warranty.
