Profile: True Twin
Flex: 5/10 (Medium)
Sizes: 141, ’45, ’49, 152
This is a tech review of the much awarded, ever popular Lipstick All-mountain/freestyle tuned, do it all snowboard from Burton. The Lipstick’s versatility is abundant in its high end tech paired with its true twin shape and flex to make for a playful and predictable ride. Burtons “Flat Top” rocker profile has the Lipstick’s camber flat under foot for continuous edge control and power, while rockered at the tip and tail that will make it easier to turn, more forgiving, catch free and floaty in powder. The medium stiffness means it’s great for a variety of terrain and all skill levels. It’ll take on early morning groomers, off piste adventures, jumps, rails, slush, whatever you can throw its way.
Burton have gone out of their way to make sure all bases are covered here
Thinner core profiling under the bindings alongside thicker core sections is Burton’s “Squeezbox” tech and enhances stability, gives the board better pop and makes it generally easier to manipulate. “Frostbite” edges are protruding edges along the rail under the bindings and give some extra edge control so that the rocker shape doesn’t feel too loose and washy.
Finally the “Super Fly II” core mixes core wood density to keep the weight down but still offer optimal heel to toe response. Burton have gone out of their way to make sure all bases are covered here and they’ve come up with a really fun All-Mountain freestyler. So if this is your first ever snowboard purchase or you’re a lady who looks to use their park skills for progressive freestyle all over the mountain, have a serious look at adding the Lipstick to your cart.
