2024 Burton 1996 Dolphin Snowboard
Ride the board that inspired a whole generation of female riders.
The 1996 Dolphin was a clear line in snowboarding - it stands as THE first Women's specific board and women's pro model in Burton's line( and like the 2nd to market - previously Shannon Downing had a pro model on Sims in 1995). This is a commitment to women's presence in our sport. It featured a softer flex/feel matched to a smaller female rider - but elevated the sport to the next level.
Camber – Tried and true, camber has been the dominant board bend in the snowboard industry for almost 40 years. Cambered snowboards deliver precise turning and edge control, with spring-loaded pop providing better jumping characteristics.
Personality – 5 - 8 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Twin Flex – The flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch.
Twin – Perfectly symmetrical for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch. Jib, spin, stomp, and butter with a greater balance of freestyle mobility and cat-like stability no matter which way you point it.
Pro-Tip – A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
SuperFly II 700G Core – Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.
Dualzone™ EGD™ – The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core for consistent edge-hold and added strength.
Triax™ Fiberglass – Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.
Carbon I-Beam™ – This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.
Sintered WFO – Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays wide open all season and in any condition.
Infinite Ride™ – This Burton-exclusive technology allows maximized pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Flat Top, Flying V™, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
Super Sap® Epoxy – A resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board.
The Channel® Mounting System – Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable -- The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton's).
