Rad Collector - Burton 2010 US Olympic Uniforms
Burton unveiled the 2010 US Olympic Snowboard Team uniform at their flagship store in NYC last night. The mellow yet patriotic red, white and blue plaid over denim jacket and pant combo will certainly have every other winter Olympic athlete wondering why the hell they didn’t take up snowboarding instead of whatever lame sport they are doing, while the Gore-Tex fabric should keep the team dry in Vancouver’s notoriously wet, heavy snow. More looks at the uniform after the jump.

Burton x Warhol x Basquiat | Vapor

Rad Collector - Burton x Warhol x Basquiat Vapor
Last year the Burton x Futura Vapor was one of the most hyped snowboards of the year. That’s the power of Futura within the hype machine. This year, the Vapor has been considerably less hyped but undeservedly so. The board itself is once again NASA-grade tech, dipped in $1200 worth of Vaporskin Lite, and the shred stick that is going to win Kevin Pearce a gold medal at the Olympics in Vancouver. What’s been largely overlooked, though, is the fact that the 2010 Vapor features a graphic derived from a collaborative Andy Warhol x Jean-Michel Basquiat piece. See, now it’s a collector’s item. Available now at Burton flagship stores in LA, NY, Chicago, and Burlington.

Rad Collector - Burton Vice Mitt
Burton keeps coming with the hot shit. Hey it’s almost October, what do you expect? Dropping next is the butterific Vice Mitt. Not a collabo with the mag, the Vice Mitt is rather a mitt of all mitts that not only keeps your hands toasty but also conceals your favorite on-mountain vice, get it? The graphic above should be a hint but if you still haven’t figured it out, hit the jump. Then run to one of the Burton flagships stores and hope you can get your hands on a pair.

Burton Beanie Heads

Rad Collector - Burton Beanie Heads
Burton took a pretty rad approach with their beanie presentation for this year’s catalog. Flipping the switch on both regular rider shots and mannequins, they combined the two into some pretty bugged out pseudo-dummies starring their team. You’ve got Terje, Keegan Valaika, Kim Rune Hansen, Marko Grilic, Mads Jonsson, Mark Sollars, Jussi Oksanen, Chris Sorman, Stephan Maurer and Kazu Kokubo’s decapitated and cryogenically frozen-looking dome pieces laced with Burton’s 2010 beanie line. And the beanies look pretty dope too. They are all out now at Burton flagship stores. Check out the rest of the heads after the jump.

Rad Collector - Burton Restricted Booth Team Jacket
With summer now actually over, it’s funny how quick that nip gets back in the air. Where’s the global warming at huh? It’s all good though, cause fall coat season means extra flossin plus you don’t have to stuff your phone, iPod, Blackberry, keys, wallet, and gum into your two front jeans pockets anymore. Towards that end, peep the Booth Team Jacket from Burton‘s Restricted line. Old school Starter jacket styling plus some dope color ways including a mesmerizing blue arctic tiger print will have you forgetting you even liked summer at all. Available now at Burton flagship stores in LA, Chi-town, NYC, and Burlington. Check out all the colors after the jump.

Burton x R. Crumb

Rad Collector - Burton x R. Crumb
As part of their ill Private Stock project, which kicked off last season with Ron English, Burton has linked up with elusive cult hero R. Crumb for the new Fritz the Cat Twin V Rocker board. Definitely a collector’s piece, the board retails for a mellow $399 so don’t expect it to last long at retail. Speaking of that, you may have to hunt a bit, only 100 retailers along with the flagship stores in NY, LA and the Chi will have these.
