Burton Custom Restricted 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Custom Restricted is a Twin camber version of the Custom Flying V Restricted like the Custom is to the Custom Flying V. Usually the Restricted Custom is the same as the Custom but this time there is a completely different ride. They share the same name and the same twin shape but that’s it. The vastly different camber profiles change the ride a lot. This has a more semi-aggressive freestyle feel to it for those that like the Custom but want to ride switch a lot more.  It’s still got the same mountain speed as the Custom Camber and it also has the carving ability.  So if you like a more old school all mountain freestyle approach the Restricted Custom Twin might satisfy that need.  It feels like a slightly more aggressive Burton Parkitect.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

On Snow Feel: Very stable between the feet like camber is and it also doesn’t feel too catchy either. The Custom Twin camber has snappy all around kind of ride.

Powder:  This is a camber twin with a centered stance so it is not going to have an easy float.  If you are old school twin camber rider this will be fine but if you are used to Twins with a little more of a bend up in the tip and tail it’s not going to be an easy ride.

Turn Initiation and Carving:  Like all Burton boards, this is going to be snappy and fun edge to edge.  Even though the turn initiation is moderate if you know what you are doing this can be very quick edge to edge.

Speed:  Just like the Custom in a twin shape.  Its got a fast base and it’s a pretty stable ride when you pick up speed.  Night and day difference from the Custom Flying V Twin/ Restricted Custom Flying V.

Uneven Terrain:  Burtons boards have a lot of shock absorption and a great flex that can deal with crowded resort snow very well.

Edge Hold:  It holds a lot better than the Flying V Custom twin.  It’s got the same edge hold as the directional to twinish original camber model. It’s good in most conditions to even borderline hard.  It’s in the middle to the great side of good.

Flex:  Burton keeps tweaking the core of the board and the squeezebox tech makes this camber board flex easier than it should. It’s better on a butter than you would think for a camber board and it has a snappy feel.

Switch:   Perfect either way.

Jibbing:   Not a bad jib board but it’s better in the pipe and hitting kickers.

Pipe:  There is sufficient edge hold, nice drive wall to wall and it could make a person who likes to visit the pipe when it’s soft pretty happy.

Jumps:  Great spring.  It’s Ollie time with this board.  Like the Tw Custom it’s just really fun to get air with this board.  If you pair this with Burton bindings with hinge tech you have a very springy board. You can ride around the mountain and get more air than you can with most boards. It’s also great for kickers of any size.  If you are a more technical rider this will be a dream and it’s much better for large kickers that have 50-70 foot of air before you land.
