Talent Scout Snowboard

You're sure to make your mark when you hit the park on the Burton Women's Talent Scout Snowboard. This twin board is designed to make you fall in love with camber all over again. While it's built with perfectly-sculpted jumps, smooth rails, and pristine pipes in mind, the Talent Scout holds it own when you venture off to explore the rest of the mountain.

A crucial piece to the Talent Scout's freestyle dominance is the Off-Axis construction. It starts with an asymmetrical sidecut that's deeper on the heel side to make heelside carves feel as confident and powerful as toeside turns. Burton then took things a step further by incorporating an asymmetric flex and asymmetric Frostbite edges in order to make riding this board feel as natural and instinctive as possible. The result is greater confidence and control, whether you're taking your talents to the rail line or just lapping groomers. Off-Axis Squeezebox profiling makes the core thinner where you want flex and thicker where you need strength.

Your aggressive approach to park laps and high-speed carving demands the power, pop, and edge hold that only camber can provide. Lucky for you, this board's camber profile blends the two by adding subtle, flat-to-rocker zones just outside the bindings, giving you a classic camber feel that won't punish you for slight under-rotations. The Superfly II core uses lightweight woods that specifically target strategic areas to drop weight and increase pop, and Dualzone EGD adds edge control by placing perpendicular strips of wood along the edges. And for extra grip on those bulletproof East Coast days, Frostbite edges extend out from under your bindings to create extra contact points so you can hold an edge on icy halfpipe walls and sketchy steeps.

  • A powerful board that provides hard edging and solid park prowess
  • Camber profile is powerful and poppy for ultimate control
  • Twin shape excels in the park with switch landings and takeoffs
  • Medium-Stiff flex is powerful and responsive to inspire confidence
  • Super Fly core is durable to hold up to a season worth of rails
  • Channel mounting system eliminates dead spots for a smooth flex
  • Sintered base keeps you moving quick for clearing big jumps

Not too shabby

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm 5'4" and rode a 146. I paired it with the new Lexa bindings. Took this board up night riding at Brighton and it was ok. It's not a bad board by any means, but it wasn't as fun as I was hoping. Not super responsive and experienced some chatter on the icy snow you'd expect to get night riding. I wish it had just a little bit more flex. Took me a second to get the flow of the board. As I said, by no means is this a bad board. I would definitely reach for my Burton Lipstick first. I think this would be fun in the park, but I broke my back and severely sprained my ankle 6 months ago, so none of that for me... yet. With that said, if I can ride this board with an injured back and ankle and still enjoy my time on the mountain, anyone can.

It's aiiight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was a little dissappointed when I rode this board.. Not my favorite from Burton. I rode a 149, and given my size I should have been on atleast a 152 so that may be why I didn't enjoy it as much. It honestly was not responsive, especially when spinning, the pop was not all there, and it was sketchy riding on rails. It felt like it didn't have much life to it. And it did not handle well through chunder. I love burton products but this is not my personal favorite. I thought the Burton feelgood had more life and charge to it. Not to say you won't love this board ladies! Definitely still give it a try. Just not for me.

Ride like Chloe Kim

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This board RIPS. If you want to ride like an Olympian then you should buy the Talent Scout. It feels light as a feather but holds massive control. Now I know how Chloe spins sky high over that icy pipe. The Camber profile gave me confidence on the snow as well as on park features.

POP CITY

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

For being my first Burton board, I'm in love!! I like twin tips for when you wanna swap it up and ride switch. It's super poppy (sometimes not so forgiving) and playful through the park or in the trees.

I paired this board with the Burton Lexa bindings for a weekend in Vail. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

POP CITY

Pop

    This is an awesome board for park and all terrain! Loads of pop and holds an edge perfectly for some surfy turns.

    Powerful Board

      I learned to ride on this board properly after renting beginner boards and demo'ing a few different other boards (Burton Feelgood Flying V, Salomon Gypsy, Nitro Mercy, etc.), and realizing I prefer a true twin camber profile with medium flex. It was a bit tough to handle the medium-stiff flex in the beginning, but now I absolutely love it for riding everything from park to peak. Compared to other boards I have tried, the Talent Scout stood out for locking in edges when carving hard and being stable when charging at high speeds, getting a pop out of every turn. Riding switch is a joy on this board, too. Every time I take this board out to the mountains I feel I can get a little bit more out of it and enjoy riding that much more. I'm just under 5'3", 112lbs, and ride the 141cm version.

      P.S. I noticed Chloe Kim rode this board along with Burton Lexa bindings and Ritual boots for the Olympics and all her competitions. (That's my set up as well.) If it's good enough for her it should be more than good enough for the rest of us, right?
