For those who play like the pros, the fast and superlight Burton Fortress snowboard is a confident choice in terrain that's big and icy, sketchy and steep, or just plain cracked.

  • Podium powerhouse Kelly Clark harnesses every ounce of this board's explosive pop and silky smooth handling
  • Pillowy damping reduces fatigue for more endurance while all-wheel drive edge tech and mind-reading responsiveness team up to bring out the best in anyone who steps on it
  • Burton designs womens boards to match the geometry and fitness of the female rider; torsional softness underfoot transitions to stabilizing zones between and outside the feet
  • Snappy positive camber distributes weight evenly over the entire length of the board for smooth continuous edge control from tip to tail, poppy precision and powerful turning
  • Directional shape concentrates pop in the tail and offers plenty of overall float and control; twin flex makes riding regular or switch simple
  • The Channel M6 system offers unlimited, on-the-fly stance adjustability, enhances board feel and is compatible with EST™, Re:Flex™ and Disc® bindings
  • The Channel lets you fine-tune your stance width to the millimeter, and then dial in your toe-to-heel centering and rotate your angles in 1 fell swoop
  • 500 independent laminations, each individually oriented within the core, result in superior weight savings, strength and energized response
  • Multi-zone wood grains run perpendicular to the core adjacent to the Channel (where the rider's power emanates) for ultimate strength and edge control
  • Small amounts of carbon in the minimized topsheet shave precious ounces off the board and magnify feel and response; fiberglass strengthens high-impact zones
  • Hi-Voltage fiberglass energy strands radiate outward from the Channels to the board's edges, providing driving power and effortless response
  • Lightweight Carbon I-Beam™ riding up the board's spine adds to board's longitudinal snap
  • Smooth Ride™ internal shock absorbers minimize fatigue for more control in sketchy conditions and let you set it down without exploding
  • Streamlined sidewalls shave weight without sacrificing edge-hold, strength or rideability
  • Edges extend out slightly beneath the bindings for tremendous edge hold in hard, icy conditions, but they remain playful and forgiving in softer conditions
  • Tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight and improves powder flotation
  • Highly-porous sintered base is ultra durable and has specially formulated wax infused deep into the pores for long-lasting glide
  • Fortress graphics: drawings, textures, smiley faces, brush strokes, and even moon rocks!
  • Burton snowboard deck and base colors may vary from online photo
  • Please note: 2012 Channel M6 boards are compatible with pre-2012 EST™, Re:Flex™ and traditional disc bindings with the included M6 Transition Kit
