Burton Family Tree Con Artist Snowboard 2013

Light, floaty and ethereal, the Burton Family Tree Con Artist Snowboard is a super maneuverable compact board that just begs to be ridden in tight trees with 2 feet of fresh. A directional shape with a blunt tail, S-Rocker™ and Hi-Voltage laminates for immediate rail-to-rail response lets you change direction as soon as you think "turn," and the wide nose with 20 mm of taper floats in the deepest of the deep. Don't con yourself, this board is the real deal.
Rocker Type
S-Rocker™ - Entry rocker extends from the nose to under your front foot, then transitions to camber between your feet. Compressing the camber causes the entry rocker to naturally lift the nose, improving float and stability through deep-driving pow turns and variable conditions.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 5, A medium flex for easy turning and forgiving freestyle moves
Infinite Ride™ - This Burton-exclusive technology allows for 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 Springloaded, Rocker, 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.
 
Shape
Pro-Tip™ - A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
Sidecut
Directional with Taper - Designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop while allowing the tip to rise and tail to drop slightly in deep snow
20 mm of tail taper
Core
Draonfly™ Core - Over 300 independent laminations, each individually oriented within the core, result in superior weight-savings, strength, and energized response.
Multizone EGD™ - Perpendicular wood grain orientation in four zones adjacent to The Channel for increased strength and riding precision
Laminates
Carbon Highlights Hi-Voltage - Carbon Highlights optimize each layer of the fiberglass matrix and add a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce overall weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics. A 60° fiber angle creates a highly maneuverable and playful feel, while a 45° fiber angle provides a more aggressive ride. In select Hi-Voltage models, the addition of carbon strands to the angled fiber layers adds life and further reduces weight.
Lightning Bolts Hi-Voltage - Radiating outward from beneath your feet, these energy transfer strands allow us to make the board more responsive without making it stiff. The Hi-Voltage version features energy transfer strands woven into the fiberglass both above and below the board’s core for better power and response.
Sidewalls
Slimrail - A streamlined, ultra-minimized sidewall design shaves weight without sacrificing edge-hold, strength or rideabiliy.
Base
Sintered WFO - Super fast base that retains wax well, 50% recycled content
Diecut Base Color - Combinations may vary
Edges
Stainless Steel Edges - 90% recycled content edges stay sharp and resist rust.
Topsheet
20-30% Recycled content
Graphics
Eliminated printing chemicals - uses more eco-friendly inks then traditional printing methods
Additional Features
Tram Package - The ultra high end technologies pushed even further in search of unmatched weight, strength and shredability.
Binding Compatibility
The Channel - Gives you the ability to micro adjust your stance and is compatible with Burton EST™, Re:Flex™ and Disc bindings, as well as bindings from Forum, Drake, Union, Flow, Flux, Ride, and K2 with adapter
 

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
    Powder
    Powder snowboards love powder. Often associated with freeride snowboards, powder boards sometimes feature a wider nose and a tapered narrower tail. The binding inserts, which determine the rider's stance, are often set back on a powder snowboard to help the rider float the tip of the board through the deep stuff. Powder snowboards sometimes also feature rocker, a design element where the tip (and tail) rise starts farther back on the board, which also helps the rider maintain tip float through the pow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    This features rocker in the nose and a camber extending under the feet through the tail. It is Built for riders that demand superior grip, stability, and responsive performance, but who still want to be able to float in powder.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
