Our designers called it “the banked slalom board” from day one, so you know it’s built to turn. The Speed Date features a special blend of Balanced Freeride Geometry that thrives on all terrain. 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: Entry rocker causes the nose to lift while camber under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions.
Balanced Freeride Geometry: A setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance 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.

Core
FSC™ Certified Dragondfly™ 600g : Use of end-grain woods in impact zones allows us to swap heavier woods for lighter weight species without sacrificing strength.

Dualzone EGD™: The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core for consistent edge-hold and added strength.

Squeezebox: The balance of thicker core sections and thinner, more flexible sections creates a board easier to manipulate, more energy and more pop.
Fiberglass
45° Carbon Highlights: Optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fin tune torsional feel. A 45° fiber angle provides a more aggressive ride.

Super-Sap® Epoxy: A resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies.
Base
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, in any condition.
Edges
Pro-Tip: A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

Infinite Ride: This Burton-Exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Your board will maintain its flex, pop and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
