Burton Hero Snowboard - 2011/2012

This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.

Details

  • And as forgiving as the Hero is, it carves like a samurai sword thanks to super grippy edges; bottom line, the Hero will save your season!
  • V-Rocker: center rocker with additional rockers in front of your feet ups edge control underfoot while disengaging tip and tail contact points for a catch-free feel
  • For as loose and skatelike as they feel, V-Rocker boards turn on a dime thanks to the added grip of specially tuned edges underfoot that dig into hardpack
  • Twinlike shape offers the freestyle feel of a twin board whether riding regular or switch, with improved float and control through variable terrain and conditions
  • Twin flex is perfectly symmetrical from tip to tail for a balanced ride that�s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch
  • The Channel M6 system offers unlimited, on-the-fly stance adjustability, enhances board feel and is compatible with EST™, Re:Flex™ and Disc® bindings
  • The Channel lets you fine-tune your stance width to the millimeter, and then dial in your toe-to-heel centering and rotate your angles in 1 fell swoop
  • Lightweight wood core is snappy, strong and responsive; Dualzone™ Engineered Grain Direction (EGD) increases durability and adds superior edge hold
  • Carbon stringers radiate energy outward from the Channels towards the tip and tail for added snap and power, balancing the loose and playful feel of the Hero
  • Fiberglass in the topsheet provides versatile flex and response so you can shred everything from big mountain descents to laps in the park
  • Squeezbox tech transfers energy outwards from under your feet, energizing the tip and tail for added snap when exiting a turn and ollieing
  • Additionally, Squeezbox creates a more stable board that can be powered up and manipulated with less effort
  • Exaggerated tip and tail scooping turns up the edges for a looser, more forgiving feel that ads catch-free fun when riding everything from a knee-high box to neck-deep pow
  • Meaty 10:45 sidewalls optimize 2 different angles to absorb impact for aggressive riders
  • Edges extend out slightly beneath the bindings for tremendous edge hold in hard, icy conditions, but they remain playful and forgiving in softer conditions
  • Clean and clear, this highly-porous sintered base lowers friction between board and snow, improving your speed and overall glide performance
  • Burton drew the characters on the Hero with their feet! Okay, no, not really, but it kinda looks that way.
  • Burton snowboard deck and base colors may vary from online photo
  • Please note: 2012 Channel M6 boards are compatible with pre-2012 EST™, Re:Flex™ and traditional disc bindings with the included M6 Transition Kit
