A directional utility tool designed to unlock the full spectrum of freeride terrain.

A directional utility tool designed to unlock the full spectrum of freeride terrain. The offspring of a one-night stand between two of Burton's most revered all-terrain boards, the Burton Skeleton Key has quickly become a staple in the quivers of our testers and team riders.

From Japan-deep pow to Mount Baker's legendary banks, this uniquely hard-charging directional shape fuses camber with a slightly increased waist width that carves like a knife. 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. Freeride Directional Shape Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry ends the debate with setback camber 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. 10mm Taper A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow floatation. Look for different amounts of taper throughout the line.

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.

FSC Certified Super Fly II 700G Core

Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight. Dualzone EGD Engineered wood grains for more edge-hold, response, and strength. 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

2 - THICKER/STIFFER ZONES

Profiled core for easier board control, more energy, and pop. Our most versatile Squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate.
