Description

All-terrain slashing specialist.

True to its name, the Burton Barracuda is a ravenous creature, covering every square inch of the mountain hunting for undisturbed pow stashes. It's packed with all the tech you could ask for, from Burton's channel system for easy binding setup, to frost bite edges for crazy grip and locked-in turns. And the directional tapered shape means tons of float on the deep days, and added stability for smashing through crud when the hill's getting tracked out.

The Barracuda is built on Burton's Fish-inspired S Rocker shape, which puts camber under your feet for powerful turns, and mates it with a rockered nose for effortless float when it's dumping. And that float gets kicked up a notch by the tapered shape. Basically, the nose is 15 mm wider than the tail, and that means no more back-leg burn, so you can ride longer and harder. The Frostbite edges bump out underneath your feet, to help you carve trenches when you get it on edge. You'll find that it's helpful when traversing across groomers and ice on your way to your favorite hidden stashes.

Like much of Burton's lineup, the Barracuda features Nug Raduction, and that means you can size it down from what you'd normally ride. Burton recommends dropping 2-3 cm off the overall length, which nets you more responsive handling without giving up stability. The Pro-Tip tip and tail reduce swing weight, which ups the responsiveness even further. This board is built to haul ass, so it's only appropriate that it gets a sintered WFO base, which holds tons of wax and slides super fast. Top it off with Burton's Infinite Ride, and you've got a board that feels broken-in, straight out of the box, and stays that way for the life of the board.

My Favorite Board

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Let me start off by saying that this is currently my favorite board to ride. Although this tends to be listed as a powder board, it can be used anywhere on the mountain. It rides really well on hard packed, icy slopes on the east coast and also shreds powder. Living in Utah now, it's currently my all-around board. Due to the taper on this board, it floats really well and effortlessly in the deep stuff and blasts over crud too. I'd recommend this board for all-mountain riding with the potential for powder turns.

Awesome Board

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Demoed it in Breck this year and decided I had to have it. Id compare it to a good pair of all mountain skis, with the added fun of being a board. It cuts great on the groomers and handles just as good in up to a foot of powder (unfortunately that?s the deepest I boarded this year). Very solid at higher speeds as well. I went with the cartel reflex binding and couldn?t be happier.

Embarrassing getting off the chairlift

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 6' 1" and have the 165. It's my first rocker board so I may be a little biased towards camber boards, but it feels like it's cracked in front of my front foot. Getting off the chairlift, especially if there's a big ramp, feels like I'm trying to balance on a lunch tray. Other than that it rides OK, I'd like to try the longer version.

153cm Burton Barracuda with burton cartel EST bindings. 1-2 ft of powder and the Barracuda couldn't glide on the pow any lighter. Groomers shoot this board down the mountain with great control and little chatter, and with this set up I've had it going over 60mph. I love this board.

How long do these deals last? or do they just get better when the stock gets lower?

I just pulled the trigger on. A lib tech %40 off, they sell pretty quick and sizes become very limited. I would make the move sooner rather than later.

AMAZING BOARD!

rode on this (with cartel EST bindings) for 1 day on about a foot of day old Heavenly pow. Instantly fell in love with this board. i'm 5'6", 130 lb and sized down to a 149. I never got stuck even in heavy knee high pow. This board was very stable on both crusty groomers and crunchy tracked out snow at end of day at high speeds.

The only thing left to test is some kiddie park runs that i typically do, then I will graduate this board to my daily workhorse to replace my '05 153cm salomon forecast. this board is just so much more nimble while retaining great stability. LOVE IT!!!

caution: this board might be too fast as i got multiple speeding tickets for the first time :(

This board is really nice. I had a supermodel and got this, I think this its easier to ride, with not as "catchy" edges due to the rocker in the front. Rides really well. I downsized as reccomended by burton. Im 6.1 155lbs and ride the 157 only in backcountry areas and powder, and it holds up extremely well on all but waist deep pow. Even then, if its steep enough, it rides fine. Great board, I have the Diode bindings and those are insanely good as well. Super light combo if you must carry your board up hill. Burton continues to make excellent products. But this board is a definitely winner. 5 stars for sure.

Freestyle meets freeride

A spin on the fish and a redesign of the Malolo, the Barracuda is four wheel drive for front, side, and backcountry, Nug Reductional allows you to downsize 2-3 cm from your normal length board and the S-Rocker shape gives your that effortless float on the heaviest of days. A mid level flex allows the Barracuda to be soft, playful, and a freestyle spin to a directional, tapered board.

I'm about 6'5" tall and weigh about 215. I normally ride a 172cm board that's pretty wide for my size 13 boot. Is this board compatible for my size?
