If your hunting grounds are your local sidecountry and your prey is pow, the Burton
Barracuda Snowboard is your weapon of choice. With 15 mm of taper in the tail and 50 mm of stance setback, this directional board is a pow hunter that isn't afraid of speed. The Barracuda holds it down on hard snow as well with S-Rocker™ and a respectable flex pattern. Nug Reduction level 3 makes this board surprisingly stable yet plenty-maneuverable for lining up gaps, drops, or your favorite pillow line.
S-Rocker™ - Speed and float are your friends, and that's what S-Rocker™ is all about. 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 lift the nose, thus improving float while maintaining momentum and stability through deep-driving pow turns and 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.
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.
Taper: 15 mm - A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation.
Pro-Tip™ - A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.
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.
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.
Triax™ Fiberglass - Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.
Carbon I-Beam™ - This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.
Sintered WFO Base - Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season.
Die-cut Base - Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Frostbite Edges - Frostbite edges extend out slightly beneath bindings for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions. Powerful when you need them, playful when you don't, Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining smooth, flowing, and forgiving.
Nug Raduction - Optimizes every element - from waist width and ﬂex proﬁle to sidecut and running length - letting you downsize up to 10 cm from your normal board length. Light and lively, easy to throw around, surprisingly ﬂoaty, poppy, and stable at speed - Nug Raduction™ will change the way you look at board length.
Reduction Level 3 - Downsize 2 cm - 3 cm from normal board length
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.
