No latest was the R17 Series which was sold in Japan. I'm not sure where it was produced. No more Burton raceboards anymore.

Well sports fans I'll see if I can get Doug in here. I'm sure he has a great deal of information on said topic.
Bu**shi* - Burton never made any raceboards. It was Oldenbürg (Upper Austria - now insolvent) who build them for burton. They had an exclusive deal for more than 20 years. Burton Teamriders like Sigi Grabner were however in contact with Oldenbürg on the development of boards
The longest board to my memory which was once featured on bol was a I think 280cm snowboard made for Ross Powers used on the speed slope of LaGrave (197km/h or something as ultimate Speed for that board).
