Burton Hero Snowboard 2011


Whoa, this is a nice board, I was giving it
some snapping but it’s not too stiff. This is the Burton Hero, saving one butterer at
a time. This is going to be the board for that jibberer,
that guy who likes to jump a lot, and who already basically knows what he or she is
doing. It has a flex rating of a 3, so it’s going to be a little bit softer, and it does
have the V-Rocker continuous shape. There’s V-Rocker on the nose, V-Rocker on the tail
– excuse me, V-Rocker in the middle, rocker on the nose, rocker on the tail, and Frostbite
Edges underneath the bindings, which is great. It has a twin-like shape, not completely twin,
but a twin-like shape. It does have a twin flex and it has a Super Fly Core with Dualzone
EGD. There’s hard and soft wood laminates that run tip to tail, except for the Dualzone,
which is right on the rail of your board. Burton has taken the wood and actually made
it perpendicular to the laminate wood, making it a little bit more responsive, a little
bit stiffer on its edge, actually good for rail riding as well. And it does have a negative
profile. The negative profile is a little bit thicker underneath the bindings, thinner
in the core, thinner on the tip and the tail giving a nice, smooth, even flex. Great for
jib boards. It has Triax fiberglass. The fiberglass runs
in three different directions: 45 degrees, -45 degrees and at 0 degrees. It also has
a sintered base. This base you’re going to want to maintain and stay moist. The edges, like I said, have Frostbite underneath
the bindings. Other than that it has the Grip and Rip edges. So they just 360 wrap around,
which is phenomenal, and it has the 10:45 sidewalls. They’re going to be indestructible,
so if you like boosting big on jumps, if you like thrashing hard on rails or boxes or ledges
or stumps or whatever they have now, these are going to hold up. It does have quite a bit of extras as well.
It does have the Scoop. All the contact points on the nose and the tail have been lifted
up for a nice scoop. So when you’re buttering around, if you’re doing, you know, set up
tricks and you don’t want to catch before you even do the trick, the Scoop’s going to
help you not fall. It also has Hi-Voltage jumper cables. So,
instead of just having regular carbon stringers, it has carbonated rods that run from underneath
the bindings towards the tip and to the tail. It has the Infinite Ride, which means that
this board has already been broken in by Burton. You won’t have to break this thing in when
you get on the hill. And it does have Pro-Tip as well. Pro-Tip
is a process in which Burton minimizes the amount of material on the nose and the tail,
causing for a thinner nose and a thinner tail, reducing the amount of weight and swing weight. This is wide options in the Burton Hero. If
you are a park slayer and you want to continue to slay the park, this is a fantastic option.

    @BurtonNorthstar With a Waist Width of (cm): 26.1 you will have nothing to worry about

  2. Johnny Wiley says:

    is this an all mountain board. like can i take it to the park and then shred the pow

  3. The House Outdoor Gear says:

    @jonnyflonny With the V rocker it will work great in the pow and the park, but at high speeds on the hard pack it might be a little squirrelly

  4. The House Outdoor Gear says:

    @drumermark3 On the non wide you got a 25.2 waist width on the Wide you got 25.9cm waist width. I would go with the wide. Most likely your boots have a size 11 soul, unless you have newer boots. if you got some burtons with shrinkage tech you could ride the standard width board.

  5. The House Outdoor Gear says:

    @dizzyduck3 Its more of a park board, with the v rocker its going to very buttery. Much looser they what you are used to. Are you looking for more of a park board or an all mt board?

  6. Timmy Cedrone says:

    will it still be good on grommers and freeride

  7. The House Outdoor Gear says:

    @Timmy9096 Yes, but it will be a squirrely at high speeds due to the V rocker.

  8. The House Outdoor Gear says:

    @bjgold9 This board, unless you have bigger feet.

  9. StevenL says:

    I'm looking into buying a new board. I live in washington so the conditions are always changing (hard pack, pow, ice, etc) Should I go with this board of the gnu carbon credit (2012)

  10. The House Outdoor Gear says:

    @Stevenly35 Carbon Credit all the way!
