BURTON Descendant Mens Snowboard 2021
A soft and poppy deck that’s perfect for unleashing your park skills on the entire mountain.
Park terrain or natural terrain, the men’s Burton Descendant Snowboard has a true twin shape for freestyle punch that lets you ride either direction with equal control. Soft and playful, it also steps up stability and edge control with the catch-free, park-tuned feel of PurePop Camber. Squeezebox Low provides a softer flex that maintains snappiness and ollie power. The Channel® gives you ultimate control of your stance and the fastest setup possible in a system compatible with bindings from all major brands.
ABOUT THE GRAPHIC: Recovering a Jewel from the Palace of the Dragon King is an Edo Period, wood block print. It was created by Utagawa Kuniyoshi in 1853, and it lives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Not only does it look awesome, but it harkens to the eternal journey (and sometimes struggle) of every animal’s cycle between life and death. Heady themes to be sure, but don’t worry, the Descendant’s capable of keeping it simple, too.
An evolution of a traditional camber shape, our PurePop Camber profile features subtle flat zones just outside your feet to amplify pop and add playfulness to the snap and response of camber. Early rise tip and tail sections spin and float with a catch-free feel.
Perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it.
The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that’s equally versatile regular or switch.
Super Fly® 800G Core
Lightened up and loaded with pop, our dual-species wood core utilizes dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood/hardwood to reduce overall weight with no sacrifice in strength or performance.
Engineered wood grains for more edge-hold, response, and strength.
The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength.
1 – SOFTER/THINNER ZONES
2 – THICKER/STIFFER ZONES
Profiled core for easier board control, more energy, and pop.
With an overall easier feel, Squeezebox Low brings high-end core profiling technology to the progressing rider. Stiffer zones just outside your feet create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail, while enabling a softer, smoother flex between the bindings. The end result is more control with less effort from the rider.

Super Sap® Epoxy
Super Sap® is a resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board, which is good in our book.
A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
