Burton Hero Snowboard-86174:
Some mild-mannered jibbing snowboards are built tough but sacrifice performance features for extra reinforcement materials--but that's not the case for Burton's Hero snowboard. It's a three-stage-rocker, all-mountain jibbing board with a responsive Super Fly Core and rugged Frostbite Edges with Grip and Rip™ tune. The Hero's Super Fly wood core is a strategic balance of lighter woods in specific areas for better response and denser woods where support is essential. If you had x-ray vision you could see that the wood grain along the toe and heel edges runs perpendicular to the rest of the wood core in a design called DualZone Edge Grain Direction, a process that enhances edging while adding durability.
Burton enhanced the rigidity by wrapping Triax Response fiberglass around the wood core to help improve the grip, and to balance the loose feel of the V-Rocker™, Burton added the NEW Jumper Cables Hi-Voltage, carbonated rods radiate energy outward to the tip and tail for added pop without losing the overall forgiving feel. Burton's 10:45 sidewalls, a durable sidewall construction that features two angles to help absorb impact and abuse without messing up the performance. 10:45 sidewalls are ideal for aggressive riders who want to push their trick limits, and developing riders who want a performance all-terrain snowboard that can withstand the abuse of mastering challenging terrain.
If you like to explore the entire mountain and you have a fixation for doing tricks and jibbing wherever you venture, Burton's Hero is here to save your day. One additional suggestion from Burton: If you want to optimize your trick potential, downsize your Hero size choice at least one or two centimeters from your preferred snowboard length sizing.
