Product Info

The Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Snowboard is back for another year of stomping huge lift line airs, spraying unwitting spectators, and straight lining open faces. It's nimble enough for you to do some dancing, and powerful enough that you never have to. So strap on, point it down the hill and go jump off something for cryin' out loud. No one ever became a hero by dinking around.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Directional CamberA blend of rocker and camber in the nose combines float and control while camber under the back foot drives with power and stability.

Flex

Twin FlexThe flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that's equally versatile regular or switch.

PersonalityMedium - Aggressive

Shape

DirectionalThe classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.

Balanced Freeride GeometryBalanced Freeride Geometry ends the debate between twin and directional with setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.

Pro-TipA tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

12mm Taper

Core

FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G CoreStronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.

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.

SqueezeboxBurton's most versatile Squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable and easier to manipulate.

Laminates

45° Carbon HighlightsCarbon Highlights optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce 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 more aggressive ride.

Base

Recycled Sintered WFOInfusing 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 open all season and in any condition.

Additional Features

Super Sap® EpoxyA resin formulated with bio-based materials that reduces the carbon footprint by 50% over conventional all-petroleum-based epoxies. Less oil consumption means even less of a carbon footprint per board.

Infinite Ride™This Burton-exclusive technology allows 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 Flat Top, Flying V™, 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.

Binding Compatibility

The Channel® Mounting SystemStronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable -- The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton's).
