Shortcut the learning curve with an all-around board that's catch-free and stable for boosting confidence anywhere you take it.

Get straight to the fun part. Enjoy a no-fuss feel with the Burton Instigator Snowboard, a board designed to help accelerate the learning curve and instigate a good time from your first moment on the mountain. The combination of a Flat Top bend and Cruise Control convex base keeps things friendly underfoot, creating a catch-free feel and easy control. The Channel® mounting system gives you the easiest, most adjustable setup with bindings from all major brands including Burton.

Its directional shape keeps you carving around the mountain, while its twin flex inspires just the right amount of freestyle fun.

A convex base and a flat profile from nose to tail make it extra stable for the confidence to explore and try new terrain.

The Channel® Board Mount is designed to help dial in the perfect stance and is compatible with all major bindings.

All 2014 and newer Burton snowboards with The Channel mounting system (such as the one you are looking at here) are backed by a three-year warranty from date of purchase.


Bend Flat Top Bend provides stability, balance, and continuous edge control helping the tip and tail kick up for a catch-free and loose riding experience
Shape Directional Shape is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while providing plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition
Taper 5mm Taper makes for easy turning, providing the feel and focus of a directional board without anything holding you back from riding it like a twin
Flex Directional Flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions
Core Fly 900G Core is a classic tip-to-tail wood core that utilizes the best of two wood species to lighten the load without sacrificing flex, pop, or strength
Fiberglass Biax Fiberglass features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex and a forgiving feel that's great for beginning riders or the park
Base Extruded Base provides speed and strength and requires little in the way of maintenance
Board Mount The Channel® Board Mount is designed to help dial in the perfect stance and is compatible with all major bindings
Design Features Easy Bevel gives riders an incredibly soft and forgiving board with super soft flex and a convex base that lifts the edges off the snow, making it virtually impossible to catch an edge

Burton Board Bends: Flat Top

A Flat Top™ board is primarily flat under your feet, with a rocker bend on the nose and tail. The flat profile gives 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.

The Channel®

The Channel™ is Burton’s proprietary mounting system, featured on all adult boards, and some youth models. 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). Better yet, all boards with The Channel® are fully covered by a 3-year warranty.
