Last Thursday, Burton and NYC based women’s brand Married to the Mob threw a dinner to launch their collaborative outerwear, accessory and board collection for winter 2011. Mob girls, Burton heads, and bloggers had a banquet suitable for Portuguese royalty at Macao, a downtown NYC restaurant. Karmaloop TV was in the building and shot the above video which features cameos by both Radcollector and Highsnobette staff.

Burton x Bob Marley

11 February 2010, 17.42 | Posted in collabs, Music, snowboarding, snowboards | 2 comments »


In addition to their Cheech and Chong Road Soda snowboard, Burton has hooked up another green collab, this time with the late great Bob Marley. The Marley Whammy was done with the rastafarian blessing of the Marley Estate and will no doubt be a good board to follow if you are stuck on the hill without any “medicine.” One gondola ride up with whomever owns it should cure what ails you. A couple more looks after the jump.

Rad Collector - Burton Restricted Kurtz Down Jacket
A lot of people were bummed on the retiring of the Burton Ronin line, which had been consistently putting out bangers over the last couple seasons, but if there is one thing to be said for Big B, they know how to come with the hot new shit with the quickness. Case in point is the new Restricted collection that’s packing mad heat this winter. Hottest of all, literally and figuratively, is the Kurtz Down Jacket. With DRYRIDE Durashell 2-Layer 5,000MM, 5,000G Laminated Fabric, fully taped seams and 550 Down Fill, this cold slayer will keep you hotter that the deranged Cambodian-jungle dwelling Colonel it’s named after. Available in black, brown, and snow white at the Burton flagship stores in NYC, LA, Chicago, and Burlington. Check out the other colors after the jump.

Rad Collector - Burton ConDom
In the interest of promoting both safe sex and radical shredding, Burton has introduced the ConDom for 2010. Based on the Dominant but with an even softer flex, the ConDom is the world’s softest flexing park board with a gang of jib-specific features including zero camber, a convex Freebase, spooned out Scoop tips and totally detuned Rail Ready edges so you can go in deep and hard and not worry about any unwanted surprises the morning after. The ConDom comes in 150 and 154, so clearly they’re still developing a magnum version. Available now at Burton flagships in NY, LA, Chicago and Burlington. Another look after the jump.

Burton 2010 Catalog | The Good Book

Rad Collector - Burton 2010 Catalog The Good Book
Burton Snowboards have unveiled their full catalog for 2010, The Good Book. With both a biblical design as well as a bible’s worth of product, The Good Book is meant to bring back that old “I just got my Burton catalog” feeling that existed before the time of the interweb. Features include gold leafing on the pages and cover, a silk ribbon placeholder and a 33 page photo gallery with photography from Blotto Photto, Jeff Curtes, and Adam Moran that rivals any shred mag’s photo issue. Along with that are Burton’s full hard and softgood products lines including The White Collection, B By Burton, AK, GMP, Restricted, R.E.D, and anon. Most impressive are probably Burton’s unbelievably detailed tech specs and performance analyses. From deciphering camber and rocker board tech to precise fit charts for outerwear, the Good Book is as much of a reference tool as it is a catalog. You can request a free copy by signing up here or by hitting up Burton flagship stores in NYC, LA, Chi-town and BVT on September 1. A peak at The Good Book after the jump.
