2015 Burton Men’s Kit

Every year when new gear arrives for the season we often find ourselves on BuySnow building our favorite kit for the year.  This year is no different and some of the best looking gear we have is from Burton.  Burton kills it every year and their history in the sport is legendary.  The quality put into their design and ultimately their products is unmatched.   Contact us and let us help you build your ultimate set up!

This men’s pick is for riders of all skill levels and budgets.  Anybody can step into any one of these products and feel comfortable and confident in his riding.

2015 Burton Dunmore Jacket:
Burton rolled out a few new jackets in their 2015 line and we are excited about the Dunmore Jacket, to say the least!  This jacket combines durability and style to give you the full package.  Whoever said you had to sacrifice utility for style was seriously wrong.  This jacket has premium waterproofing/breathability and light warmth with a mid fit, so there’s some room for layering.

2015 Burton Covert Pant:
New to the 2015 lineup is the Covert Pant.  This pant features DRYRIDE Durashell 2-Layer for premium waterproofing/breathability.  It also features a Shell Mapped with Mesh and Taffeta Lining for shell warmth.  They come in a Sig Fit so there is plenty of room for layering.  Ideal for a good runs on some freshies.

2015 Burton Moto Boot:
The world’s best-selling boot.  Lightweight and easy with a broken-in fit you can feel from the start.  If you are a beginner/intermediate rider and looking to make record time from lodge to lift line, the hassle-free Speed Zone lacing is for you.  This boot also comes with Shrinkage Technology that reduces your footprint an entire size and allows for excess weight to be shed.  You’ll find the DynoLite outsole to be another perk of the Moto boot, equipped with the sleeping bag reflective foil that lies beneath your foot to keep your feet dryer and warmer for a longer day on the mountain.  Moto’s proven comfort will improve your skills as you explore the entire mountain.

2015 Burton Mission EST Binding:
The most diverse stance options you can get is with the Burton EST system.  The workhorse of the EST lineup, the Misson’s Sensory BED cushions everything you’ll encounter while letting more of the feel through for improved control.  The hi-back offers the option of zero forward lean for riders who dig a more relaxed and playful feel.

2015 Burton Process Flying V (159):  If it’s good enough for an Olympic gold medal winner and all-mountain rippers like Mark McMorris, you know it’s good.  It’s not an overly engineered board so any rider should be able to maximize the fun on this shred stick.

Jeremy Jones “Higher”

Most snowboard films have a crew of riders and they are documented doing all sorts of insane tricks that you or I will never do.  It’s why we love them and it’s what makes us itch for that week long trip we take every year.  Jeremy Jones has always been one of the gnarliest dudes and some of the descents he does is just flat out insane.  Higher is a basically a film based on three major descents…basically the most insane things he has ever done on a snowboard.  Peep the trailer and if you are anywhere near the premier of this film it’s a mandatory must go.

2012 Neff is In! just received a huge shipment of Neff last week. Let me attempt to paint the picture. There was so much, our staff had to stretch the process out over three days. I even had to stop making mental post-its, and start taking mental photo’s! We have 2012 Neff backpacks, beanies, t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, Neff watches (yes watches).  A simple picture to paint. We have a ton of new 2012 Neff gear, and everything you need to ride! Check it out!


Refreshing Rocky Mountain Snow Is (Almost) Here.

We are all ticking off each second waiting for the first major snowfall of the season.  As dog days of Summer turn into the cooler to colder days of Fall and Winter, our warehouse is stocking and stuffing the shelves in preparation for another great sideways season. We have tons (yes, tons) of your favorite gear, packaged with care, and ready to ship to your front door.

While you’re perusing our store and feverishly dropping snowboards and outerwear in your personal wish list, we are doing our part to help quench the thirst of every snowboarder.  The creativity that flows beyond our walls is unprecedented, and takes on yet another new feel for September/October.  We asked our designer “EJ” how he came up with this months Rocky Mountain front-page style.  EJ said…

“The front page style started out as a creative for one brand and one product.  The success of the Rocky Mountain design translated into a perfect fit for our front page.”

We agree, EJ, this month’s packaging is well, refreshing.  Check out our boy EJ’s new front-page design.  And please leave a comment below, tell us what you like or what you would change in design or functionality.  By the way, if you leave a comment and let us know, you are automatically entered to win a new pair of Skullcandy UPROCK headphones just for your suggestions. Winner will be chosen at random on September 30, 2011.

Burton Cartel EST Snowboard Bindings

The snowboard bindings respected by the masters of snow, Burton fuses empowering performance and total comfort into one with the Cartel EST. This binding is pushing dudes like Mikkel, Kazu, and Rencz to crush all restraints, and Everest-like mountain peaks. The super lively baseplate and new AutoCant cushioning creates mind-reading response from park laps to Banshee-like urban brawlers. A set-it-and-forget-it strap package keeps your dogs comfortably caged…while the anatomically canted Living Hinge hi-back activates your edges and turns up precision and style.

The Burton Cartel EST Binding (Toxic Green) has a Response Rating of 7…and rides exclusively with Burton boards featuring The Channel.


Oakley Goggles – Crowbar

Oakley never lets our crew down. I am sure you will find the new selection of Oakley goggles tasty! This crew pick is no exception. Let’s take a closer look at the 2012 Oakley Crowbar. Crowbar Snow is the first Oakley snow goggle created with pressure balance in mind. The Oakley Crowbar is designed and constructed incorporating struts to distribute goggle frame pressure across the face for all-day comfort. Oakley engineered the contact area of the snowboard goggle to match facial contouring for a precise anatomical fit. A silicone backing insures that the strap will stay in place. There are also a three layers of fleece face foam, which maintain comfort while wicking or pulling away the sweat from your face during those all-out all-day shred sessions.
