Quick overview

All Speed, No Limit. Now uphill! The Hometown Hero is the 'General Lee' of the Burton family. The X is the upgraded split variant. A lighter Dragongfly 600G Core (great in the uphill position) and a Methlon Base make this a premium splitboard in the Burton FT series. With its big nose, this board pounds through everything at maximum speed. If you have less to spend, check out the standard Hometown Hero Split. Family Tree Line Up The Burton Family Tree Models are completely gender-neutral, as is fitting for these times. With the focus on the terrain rather than the person who rides it. More models for everyone, for every terrain.

Details

PROFILE

  • Directional Camber
    Camber underfoot with early-rise rocker in the nose. Early rocker causes the nose to lift in powder while camber under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions.

  • Balanced Freeride Geometry
    In the simplest terms, it is a twin-shaped, camber snowboard with a longer, wider, rocker nose added on. This creates a board that can rip both hard-pack and pow with precision.

  • Taper
    The widest point in the sidecut tapers in toward the tip earlier for less drag and hooking in powder. Swing weight is also reduced making the ski even more maneuverable in difficult snow.

  • Pro Tip
    A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

  • Infinite Ride
    This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. No matter the bend, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.


CORE

  • Dragonfly 600G Multizone EGD Core
    Multi-Zone Engineer Grain Direction (Multizone EGD™). Burton-specific engineered wood grains. In four separate zones, the wood grain is perpendicular to the core adjacent to The Channel®- the area from which a rider’s power emanates-for ultimate strength and edge control. Even more edge-hold, response, and strength.

  • Squeezebox
    Squeezebox is a patented Burton-only core profiling technology that allows for a more stable launch platform just outside of the feet, increased energy & spring in the tip/tail as well as a faster response with energy directed closer to your feet. Thinner core profile underfoot provides more board maneuverability and the thicker sections outside of your feet can be used for loading up energy for more pop.

  • Mystery Glass
    Using a formula from the future, Mystery Glass is the result of a robotic-built complex carbon layup that allows us to manipulate flex and feel while revolutionizing strength-to-weight. Bottom Glass = Uni-Direction Carbon & -45°/+45°. Top Glass = Hardglass (Pre-cured -45°/+45° + Uni-Direction Glass (0°) + Uni-Direction Carbon.


TOPSHEET

  • Super Sap Resin
    A 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, which is good in our book.


BASE

  • Methlon Base
    Even higher molecular weight with a small amount of PTFE (Teflon) pellets mixed into the base, which makes it harder and thus faster and stronger.


SIDEWALL

  • ABS (recycled) Sidewall
    Provides enhanced durability while keeping the core safe from moisture.When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, Burton has choosen for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of their products.


EDGES

  • Cruise Control Edge Tune
    A tuned edge that makes for a less catchy feel during your edge changes.


MOUNTING

  • The Splitboard Channel
    The Channel® is Burton’s answer to connecting bindings to a snowboard in the strongest way possible without sacrificing board flex and feel underfoot while giving you ultimate control of your stance. All Burton splitboards with the Split Channel come with pucks pre-mounted for easy setup.
