Burton & Polartec: Premium Pioneers

Published by Mountainblog on .


Comfort x Durability
Burton, the Vermont-born pioneers of the snowboarding industry, searches endlessly for the newest technologies to take their line to new heights. They looked to Polartec to add our signature performance and comfort, and together we created a premium base layer collection that marries function and fashion for the ride, the fireside, and everywhere in between.

Warm and breathable may seem in opposition, but the Science of Fabric has the solution.
Power Grid™ is a patented, bi-component knit with an exterior geometric construction. This gridded design generates targeted touch points to manage moisture and creates open-air channels that improve breathability and reduce fabric mass. The hydrophilic, next-to-skin surface absorbs sweat vapor and transfers it outside. Translation: It wicks, breathes, and dries so you can stay focused on the ride.

The [ak] Power Grid™ Base Layer line, Burton’s most premium to date, also includes a t-shirt, crew, and pants. . You won’t believe the next-to-skin comfort, warmth, and breathability of the [ak] base layers until you’ve put them to the test for yourself.
