Blast past the learning curve with the easiest, most progression-friendly men’s board we make.
The Burton Ripcord is designed to accelerate beginners and intermediates into more advanced riding situations. A directional shape makes easy work of any terrain or snow condition, while the added stability and catch-free feel of Flat Top™ with Easy Bevel puts you in the pilot’s seat. A softer, more playful flex make this an easier going alternative to the Clash, with a performance-oriented ride that gives you more room to grow than you’ll get with most entry level boards. The upgrade to The Channel® gives you the easiest stance setup and adjustments possible with compatibility that works with bindings from all major brands (not just Burton’s).
|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|

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™ 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.
