Description

The small big-mountain board.

Traditional snowboard design dictates that freeride boards should be stiff, unfriendly planks that prefer carving turns to spinning off cornices. Burton turns the concept of a big-mountain board upside down with the all-new Root Snowboard, featuring the cutting-edge Nug Raduction technology that lets you downsize your board by up to 10cm without compromising high-speed control or deep-snow float.
  • Nug Raduction technology uses a wider shape, longer effective edge, and extended contact points for big-board stability with short-board maneuverability (downsize 8-10cm from your normal board size)
  • Flat Top profile uses a large stable flat zone with rocker in the tip and tail for a floaty, forgiving ride that still feels solid at speed
  • Squeezebox core profiling offers more effective longitudinal energy transfer for bigger ollies with less effort
  • Slightly tapered shape (5mm) for effortless float in deep snow and quicker edge-to-edge transitions
  • Triax fiberglass for a responsive ride that still feels playful
  • Side Effects lengthen your contact points for more surface area and better float in deep snow
  • Frostbite Edges extend slightly out from binding-mount zones for predictable, powerful grip in all snow conditions
  • The Channel mounting system allows infinite stance options and a more natural flex

You would need a conversion kit from Union, but technically, yes, they work.

Feel Rooted in Ice, Pow, Park

Amazing, amazing, amazing. I have been riding old Burton Boards, DC's MLF and Capita's Indoor Survival but the Root is by far the best board I've ever ridden. I love how short, 152 cm, it is ( I am 6'1", 190 lbs) yet it is also super stable at high speeds. When I want it spins like a maple seed. Since I use Flow bindings I was put off by the channel system for a long time but I found the converter channel disk made by Flow on ebay. Now I wonder why I ever left Burton. I LOVE this board.

Chase, What type of rider are you? do you spend most of your time in the park? or are you a big mountain rider? are you freestyle or a powder hound? go with the libtech if you ride more park. if you ride the rest of the mountain go with the burton.

Short board turned powder hound. The Root has Nug Reduction allowing you to ride 8-10cm smaller than your normal length board. Flattop board bend allows the board to float in the powder while being super staple due to a longer effective edge and Side Effects.
