2018 Burton Women’s Lipstick Snowboard Review

 

The much awarded and ever popular Lipstick is Burton’s “do it all” snowboard for chicks only. All-mountain/freestyle tuned, the Lipstick’s versatility is abundant in its high end tech. Its true twin shape and flex make for a playful and predictable ride. Burton’s “flat top” rocker profile means the Lipstick has flat camber under foot for continuous edge control and power. With rocker sections at the tip and tail which will make it easier to turn, more forgiving, catch free and floaty in powder. The medium stiff flex is great for a variety of terrain and all skill levels. It will 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 “Squeezebox” tech and helps enhance stability. It also gives the board better pop and makes it generally easier to manipulate.

 

Burton have also used “Frostbite” edges on the Lipstick. They are protruding edges along the rail under the bindings that help to give some extra edge control. This makes the rocker shape not 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 all mountain freestyle, have a serious look at adding the Lipstick to your cart.
