Saving humanity from boring boards, one lap at a time.
The Burton Super Hero Snowboard was built with one mission in mind—to seek out every hit on the mountain. Whether you're lapping the park or blasting side hits, the Flat Top profile has the stability of camber and the playfulness of rocker. The Nug Raduction tech package allows you to downsize 4-5cm from your regular board size for more response with no loss of control. And the scoop tip and tail will open up new butter combos that you didn't even think were possible. When you're ready to super-size your skill set, the Super Hero is ready and waiting.
The Super Hero runs a twin shape, so it rides switch exactly like it does regular. The Flat Top profile blends the best of rocker and camber by providing stability and pop, plus the catch-free ride you've come to expect from rockered boards. Side Effects give you the absolute maximum effective edge, which cranks up the edge hold. And it gets even better with Frostbite edges, which bump out under the binding for tenacious grip on ice and hardpack.
The Super Hero's Nug Raduction tech package enables you to run a board that's 4-5cm smaller than you'd typically ride, without sacrificing performance. The lightweight Super Fly core is profiled for a controlled flex, even in choppy snow. Squeezebox takes this concept a step further, thinning the core under the bindings for an even flex along the entire length of the board. That gets a boost from The Channel mounting system, which works in conjunction with EST bindings to give you unrestricted flex and incomparable board feel. Pro Tip keeps the Super Hero spinning fast, and Infinite Ride ensures that it feels broken in right out of the box, and stays that way.

I actually tested this board out from one of my buddies who was repping Burton at the time. I had the opportunity to test this guy out for a couple weeks so it was really unfortunate once I had to let it go.
The greatest asset to this board in particular is its' versatility. Like the Burton Custom, it comes with the Super Fly II Core so it gets rid of that unwanted swing weight if you're a jumper or spinner. I, myself, am a park rat, so riding this board was perfect from top to bottom. On the jibs, it presses perfectly and off jumps its really responsive to the direction of spin, which is surprising for a flat deck (in between bindings).
Then again, you have one of those days where it just puked a whole foot, and the park is just perfectly groomed as well. If you're torn between what to hit, I highly suggest you take it for a few perfect powder laps then go for a park run after chopping up the sidecountry. It's got the early rise on both the tail and tip (ace for all you reg to switch riders) so it will be effortless butter on your way down the mountain.
My personal suggestion is that you can get away with a smaller board on this specific model. People who ride park enjoy the control they have with a shorter length board, especially on rails, and if you wanted to take it for a lap on the chowder you get the best of both worlds with the early rise.
Oh, and I forgot to mention the squeezebox tech that's mixed into this deck. You think it's just another gimmick that Burton throws in for shits and giggles. But this thing is literally a manifestation of a rider's dream turned reality. If you love flex with the added stability and that even distribution of weight across the whole wood, this is the shit! You can't literally go for a nose press and light up a cig and chill, but it gives you that added assurance of control and pop right when you need it.
Great all-mountain jib board

I got to ride this board up at Brighton for a day this past winter and it was super fun and playful. I definitely prefer the Super Hero to the Nug as it feels poppier and when you apply more force and energy to the board it actually gives it back. Super lightweight and floaty on jumps while still being stable enough to shred the whole mountain. The Super Hero and the Restricted Nug (normal camber version) were definitely my favorite Burton boards of day.
