Burton 2013 Sneak Peek Written by Mike.S on February 18th, 2012

Although the 2012 season is far from over, we at US Outdoor would like to give you a small glimpse (via SIA) into the 2013 Burton product line, which, in Jake Burton’s words, “… is shaping up to be iconic.” That statement is both literal and figurative with select pieces in the line dedicated to the Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd, whose iconography throughout past decades have shaped the minds of free thinkers AND terrified conservatives everywhere. Amongst the icons, Burton looks to develop some new stars while combing the lineage of their rich history. From their “Family Tree” line of boards dedicated to fresh lines and powder to an awesome collaboration with Red Wing Shoes, seen here:

Inspired by true craftsmanship (an art that has somewhat faded with the passing of our fathers), the rough and rugged “Rover” boot is as sophisticated as it is tough. The combination of Red Wing Leather and a Vibram outsole hits home like a strong handshake with a cold beer to chase it.  Other solid features like Rad Pads and EST bring comfort to the forefront of the riding experience, thus completing the harmonious circle of form and function, because out here you don’t work in flip flops!

If there were any significant icon that registers “easy living” in the brain, it would probably have to do with the Grateful Dead. Behold, the 2013 Easy Livin Snowboard! This mind melter is the personification of two lifestyles that represent fun and fanaticism. For any “Dead Head” that breathes the fresh mountain air this board and its plethora of features tour the vast terrains of our world in search of good times and Easy Livin.

Though Rick Solomon might not resemble Shaun White in any way, shape, or form, he does however hold Shaun White’s new TWC Pro model with pride… and a look that captures the bewildering nature of its awesomeness? All signs point to yes. The TWC Pro Snowboard enters the realm of psychedelic futurism where rock and roll still coexist beautifully like snow and mountain; with its traditional camber capturing what it’s like to slay the dragon.
