The new Hero Restricted Snowboard updates Burton's infamous trick-stomping machine with more pop than ever for park-to-peak freestyle domination. The buttery flex helps you throw a mean 180 to switch nosepress, while Frostbite edges keep you in control on the way into sketchy natural pat-downs.
- V-Rocker shape lifts your contact points for a catch-free feel that also floats great in powder
- Infinite Ride construction breaks-in fiberglass at the factory for a consistent out-of-the-box ride that lasts
- Frostbite Edges extend slightly out from under the bindings to improve control in firm snow conditions
- New Jumper Cables High Voltage use carbon stringers radiating from your feet to the tip/tail for added pop
- Dualzone EGD uses strategically-placed wood grain near the edges for improved power transfer
- The Channel mounting system allows infinite stance options with EST or 3D bindings

took this board out for the first time this past weekend (bretton woods, nh), as an alternative to my forum seeker. i was really satisfied, overall. it had more pop than i expected, spun easily, stuck to rails, floated through powder, was stable in the jump park and carved great through intermediate trails. it did well in most glades and chutes as well. the only terrain it had trouble with were steep, icy trails and glades. it was adequate, but it definitely made quick turns through icy moguls more of an adventure. i won't be retiring my seeker just yet. if you're looking for a park board that you can take to 90% of the mountain, or if you're lucky enough to see nothing but powder, then this board is a great choice and a lot of fun. also...the board didn't come with the conversion kit for non-EST bindings, so make sure you pick that up if you don't want to drop the loot on ESTs just yet. also, make sure you REALLY tighten the screws...i had them tight and after 10 hours of riding over 2 days my bindings started sliding up and down the channel.
Hey I ride all mtn but soon want to go...
Hey I ride all mtn but soon want to go park. Will the twinlike shape make a difference on 180s and stuff or will i love it?
The hero is pretty much a jib board. It is really soft and flexible. If you are used to riding 180s this will be a big switch up. First, board technology has changed so much over the years you don't need a board that big, But you can check out the Custom Flying V, this is a great board for all mountain riding. http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-custom-flying-v-snowboard
155= Where its at
Bought this board the 155 model with blue and yellow, absolutely sick board, amazing pop. Sleek graphics with a light, laid back feel to the board itself. One of the sickest boards out there this year. You feel so smooth riding on this, no edge catching by accident. Two thumbs up
