Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Camber Snowboard 2021
We always love to carry family tree boards as they represent what Burton see as the future, essentially fully completed prototypes put out for real world rider feedback. If you love to freeride then the Hometown Hero should be on your wish list. The set back camber provides excellent edge hold, while the slight taper leaves a high volume nose that sits up in powder and blasts through late afternoon crud. The WFO base is Burton’s top of the range option and ensures you are never lacking glide.
We spend a lot of time poking around Vermont's tight trees and icy lines, so we built the Burton Family Tree Hometown Hero Snowboard to blast through it all. It's a daily driver with a build and materials worthy of the Family Tree name. The directional shape has enough taper to float the nose on deeper days, while the board's directional camber and flex maintain the pop to keep it lively in all conditions and terrain. Strategically placed glass stiffens up the nose and tail for bump-busting power and response.
Directional Camber Bend has camber under both feet for stability through deep-diving turns and variable conditions and a rockered nose that adds lift for increased float
Freeride Directional Shape features a setback camber and a sidecut that is centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle stance when riding flat base, and on edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess of a directional deck
12mm Taper provides a versatile ride that promotes free and easy turns, making this board perfect for riding in any condition
Directional Flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions
Super Fly II 700G Core uses stronger and lighter wood to provide pop and strength while reducing overall weight
45° Carbon Highlights Fiberglass build optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine-tune torsional feel
