Burton Family Tree Pile Driver Snowboard 2015

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.
Rocker Type
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.
 
Flex
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.
Shape
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.
Swallow Tail
Core
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.
 
Laminates
Triax™ Fiberglass - Triax™ Fiberglass promotes asymmetrical flex with lengthwise stiffness in the snowboard. Meaning, your snowboard has tons of pop and responsiveness.
Carbon I-Beam™ - This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.
Base
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.
Topsheet
GMP Mountain Dew™ Recycled PET Topsheet
Additional Features
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.
 
Binding Compatibility
The Channel - Gives you the quickest, easiest way to mount your bindings with the most stance options possible: Take control of your stance and your board like never before, micro-adjust your width and angles with ALL major binding formats including EST®, Re:Flex™, and Disc. M6 hardware means it's compatible with all major binding companies, making it a choice for any rider.
 

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    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: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • 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.
  • Shape: Directional
  • 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.
