Burton — King of the Mountain
When those in the know think of snowboarding gear, there’s one name that comes to mind before all others: Burton. The very definition of an industry leader, Burton has built a reputation through an uncompromising commitment to quality above all else, as well as elevating innovation from buzzword status to a foundation for growth.
History of Burton Snow Gear
Back in 1977, snowboarding was considered to be a very niche hobby, more of a curiosity, with no sporting companies behind it. So Jake Burton Carpenter decided to do something about it. In his little Vermont barn, Carpenter began working on snowboard design and construction, lending his middle name to this fledgling company.
Carpenter had one strong focus — he wouldn’t create anything for the sake of creating it. It had to be unmatched in materials and construction, tested tirelessly under the most demanding conditions to ensure it was worth putting his name on. He invested heavily in research and development, looking at every single aspect of snowboarding to find room for improvement.
As the decades passed, and the sport gained legitimacy, snowboarders everywhere came to trust and rely on anything released under the Burton brand. Breakthrough designs, durable construction and a genuine love for the sport became the standard, and competitors could only hope to try to keep up. Now, forty years since Carpenter’s first homemade snowboard left his barn, you see his name wherever there is snow, and sometimes where there’s gold — Shaun White, winner of the most Olympic medals in snowboarding history, can always be seen riding a Burton.
