The Sochi Games will mark the third consecutive Olympics where Burton has partnered with U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association to create uniforms for the riders.
"USSA is proud to have snowboarding's most iconic brand as our Olympic Team Uniform partner,” says Michael Jaquet, chief marketing officer, USSA. “Burton has once again raised the bar on design, function and style with this kit, and we congratulate them on once again capturing both the Olympic and American spirit in a uniform the athletes will be proud to wear."
For the design of the 2014 uniforms, Burton turned to America's heritage for inspiration, specifically handcrafted patchwork quilts, the American flag and corduroy.
Burton also designed all items that will be worn under the jacket and pants, including first-layer bottoms and tops, three different beanies, gloves/mitts and a pull-over fleece.
