Our designers called it “the banked slalom board” from day one, so you know it’s built to turn. The Speed Date Wide features a special blend of Balanced Freeride Geometry that thrives on all terrain, plus the benefit of an increased waist width for folks with bigger feet, or a soft spot for wider carving tools. Directional Camber combines with a unique shape, aggressive sidecut, and just the right amount of taper to burn turns and eat berms for breakfast.
Directional Camber – A blend of rocker and camber in the nose combines float and control while camber under the back foot drives with power and stability.
Directional Flex – This flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.
Balanced Freeride Geometry – Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers, and Balanced Freeride Geometry ends the debate with setback rocker profile and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.
FSC Certified Dragonfly 600G Core – Over 500 independent laminations, each individually oriented within the core and using firmer wood under the binding area with lighter wood at the nose and tail, result in superior weight-savings, strength, and energized response. Burton's most advanced core.
45° Carbon Highlights – Carbon Highlights optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 60° fiber angle creates a highly maneuverable and playful feel, while a 45° fiber angle provides more aggressive ride.
Recycled Sintered WFO – Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays wide open all season and in any condition.
