Pile life, it's a hard one. Waking up at the crack of noon to shred pow with the homies, dang. Well, the obvious quiver choice is going to be the Burton Family Tree Pile Driver Snowboard. This fresh addition to the Burton Family Tree line had some retro roots with modern technologies. Taking design ques from the ol' Burton Perfomer, the Pile Driver features surf-inspired shaping and lots of surface area under your front foot - aka less nose dives in pow. Coming in only one size, 140cm, this deck is designed to be ridden shorter for slashing through the trees with ease. The Burton Filet-O-Flex core profiling creates a softer flex while remaining stable and strong. To fill the void from Filet-O-Flex, Burton uses Channel Island surf pads that double as pow surfing grip, if you feel like throwing it back and riding without bindings. Life's hard, so just be a pile and ride powder all day, every day, with the Burton Pile Driver.
S-Rocker™ Burton's S-Rocker™ blend has more rocker towards the nose and subtly transitions into a cambered tail. By having more lift in the nose, you get improved flotation while maintaining speed through deep powder turns and ample stability in variable conditions.
Directional Flex Burton's directional flex snowboards feature increased pop coming from the tail. The nose is less flexible, this allows you to easily maintain control and keep your tip up in pow.
Filet-O-Flex Burton's Filet-O-Flex is constructed by milling down the snowboard's core. The result is a soft board with strength, stability, durability, powerful pop and great edge-hold.
Directional Directional is the original snowboard shape. It is designed with a slightly longer nose, to concentrate the pop in the tail. This board will give you plenty of floatation, fluidity, and control to rip.
Pro-Tip™ A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
Taper: 12 mm A tapered shaped mean the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow floatation.
FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduce weight. Further optimized for float in Burton's freeride focused boards, and strength in Burton's park-focused boards.
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.
Squeezebox Burton's Squeezebox improves your boards performance by balancing thicker more powerful core sections in with thinner more flexible sections. In translation, Squeezebox enhances your connectivity to your snowboard which will create an amazingly stable, responsive and predictable ride.
Triax™ Fiberglass This laminate gives the board an asymmetrical flex with lengthwise stiffness. The result is a board that remains smooth and stable.
Carbon I-Beam™ This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.
Sintered WFO Sintered bases are super-fast. Polyethylene pellets are forced together under extremely high pressure. The result is a singular piece of connected pellets with tiny pores across the entire base. Then, Burton infuses a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered base which results in an ultra-durable, smooth and fast base all season long.
Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
GMP Mountain Dew™ Recycled PET Topsheet
Infinite Ride™ Burton-exclusive technology allows for maximum 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 your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
