Burton's New Catalog and Website Launch Today


The white stuff is on the way, and and the 2006 Rider Catalog are officially up and out. While you've all been busy outside running amok in the summer sun, we here at Burton HQ have been hard at work banging out our best website and Rider Catalog yet. The 2006 site has been completely redesigned and is jam-packed with new features to amuse, inform, and entertain you while you count down the days until your local mountain opens. The Rider Catalog is a veritable Burton Bible, with detailed info on every product from every line and plenty of awesome shots of the Team ripping it up to get you stoked on the season ahead.

Our Team was everywhere there was snow last year, shooting hundreds of amazing photos and tons of sick footage, all the while testing and perfecting the 2006 gear. Brace yourself for a barrage of incredible innovations that will make this your best season ever. This year's star is the much-anticipated Vapor - the lightest board on Earth - but be sure to check out our other ride-enhancing innovations; from Audex wearable technology to Speedzone lacing to the Convertible Capstrap, we've got you covered from head to toe. You'll find all the details in the new catalog and on the site, and when you're done boning up on all the new stuff, cruise into's Community section for a rad way to catch up on the latest gossip and learn all about the behind-the-scenes happenings here at Burton.
