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 men's Burton Skeleton Key Snowboard 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.
Shape + Flex
Directional Camber Bend has camber under both feet for stability through deep-diving turns and variable conditions and a rockered nose that adds lift for increased float.
Freeride Directional Shape features a setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle stance when riding flat base, and on edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess of a directional deck.
10mm Taper provides a versatile ride that promotes free and easy turns, making this board perfect for riding in any condition.
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.
Construction + Core
Super Fly II 700G Core uses stronger and lighter wood to provide pop and strength while reducing overall weight.
Dualzone EGD engineered wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones perpendicular to the core for more edge-hold, response, and strength.
Triax Fiberglass provides versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.
The Channel® Board Mount is designed to help dial in the perfect stance and is compatible with all major bindings.
Base + Edges
WFO Base infuses specially formulated wax deep into the pores of the extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material, making it ultradurable for riding all season in any condition.
