Burton Free Thinker 2017-2018 Snowboard Review | The Snowboard Asylum


As one of the most progressive riders of this generation, Danny Davis’s evolution from competition half pipe rider to creative freerider has pushed the boundaries of freeride snowboarding to a whole new level. His unique ability to stamp his mark on any terrain has become the hallmark of this great rider. To ride at that level takes a huge amount of skill, but it also requires great equipment, and that’s exactly what Danny’s Free Thinker is.

As the most versatile board of Danny’s new Thinker series, the Free Thinker is aimed at experienced riders who are looking for a high-performance snowboard that blends the feel of a freestyle board with the power and response of a freeride board. Built around a pow friendly twin tip chassis, it gives all the balance and control that you need for hitting those big back country kickers. But get this thing out on the mountain, and it’s going to blow you away. With its powerful high-end construction, traditional camber profile and extra grippy Frost-Bite edges, the Free Thinker charges the mountain like an express train, inspiring you to ride harder and faster.

As you would expect from a high-quality board like this, Burton don’t skimp when it comes to construction. Heading this up is the lightweight Super-Fly 700 G Squeezebox wood core. This complex core has been specifically engineered to improve power transfer to the edges and increase pop and power through the length. Match this with the 45° Carbon-Highlights structural layers, which blends a full-length carbon layer with Tri-Ax weave glass, and what you get is a powerful and responsive super stable board that really gives you the confidence to push your limits anywhere on the mountain. Finally, to finish off, Burton fit the Free Thinker with their wax impregnated WFO sintered base.
