Product Info

Look at those numbers and you know the Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Snowboard is going to kill it on a deep day. 258mm waist in a 160cm with 40mm of setback. Lord have mercy, the pow has no chance! But the Hometown Hero isn't just for the fluff, it has the stuff to ride hard and fast all over the mountain, even when it hasn't snowed in a while. Directional camber, a stiff flex, and tapered blunt shape all work with a lightweight carbon-boosted core to make for heroically good time.

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

Personality5 - 8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

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

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.

12mm Taper

Balanced Freeride GeometryBalanced Freeride Geometry spec 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.

Core

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

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 a 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
