The Burton Hero LTD Snowboard—don’t feel guilty when you’re landing tricks you never thought possible. We won’t tell. This Coalition snowboard packs limited edition graphics, and the same V-Rocker that has made the regular Hero famous. The V-Rocker puts a rocker between your feet, with additional rockers towards the nose and tail for unreal control, pop, and presses. The spoon-like freestyle Scoop tips add a buttery, skate-like feel and more float, and the Pressure Distribution edges hold in the pipe and on the groomers.
- V-Rocker for pop and control
- Freestyle Scoop tips for presses and float
- Soft twin flex makes it easy to ride and land switch
- Channel binding connection works with EST and 3D bindings
- Pro-Tip construction reduces swing weight for easy spins
- Dualzone EGD for superior edge hold and added strength
- Sintered base for plenty of speed and excellent durability
- Burton recommends downsizing 1 to 2 cm from your normal board length

Thats the Board
I really tested one before buying mine.
It is exactly how is described in the others reviews.
I used mine last week and it´s very soft and flexible.
That´s the board !!!

can i ride a 152cm board if i am 5'10" and were a size 10 in boot with a large binding, also can i put them on a 152cm board and not have to worry about toe drag
You're more looking towards the width of the board. Most boards that have a waist width of less than 248-250, will not support L bindings(unless you have the binding tweaked smaller to fit the deck, but your boot prob wont fit the set-up). Also length of board really depends on weight rather than height. So seeing as this is a mid-wide, it shouldn't be a problem for you with L binders. And yes you can ride the 152. Im 6' 165 and I ride a 154w. Also with reverse camber boards it allows you to technically ride up to 5cm shorter than a reg cambered deck. Hope this helps brotha
You will be golden!
This is a mid-wide waist width and will support a large with 10's no problem as long as you have about 12+ degree angles on each foot.
i am 5'10" i was going to buy the burton...
i am 5'10" i was going to buy the burton hero ltd, because i am a park rider. but it says burton recamends downsizing 1 to 2 cm. i was going to get the 155. but should i get the 152 instead? i am 165 pounds. iwear size 10 in boot, can i put large bindings on a 152cm board and not have toe drag
Either one will be fine... to give you a comparison.
I weight 190lbs and am 6'0" tall... I ride a 155-157 for park
You would be more than stoked on a 152 ...plus you could butter your face off: nose presses for days!
Waist width will not be a problem as its a mid-wide waist width.
If you ride park, I would say go for the 152. I ride mainly park aswell and I ride a 154w. Like I said on the other question you asked, im 6' 165lbs with size 12's. If I could find a wide deck in a 152 I would prob rip that in the park. But unfortunately the smallest I can get is a 154, so thats what I have to deal ride. Not complaining, but it would be fun to try out a smaller reverse cambered deck
2010 hero Ltd, mission Est 2010... you know... take it to the top
im going to make the switch from sking to...
im going to make the switch from sking to boarding this winter, im really interestedin this board, is it something that i can start out on? also im 6'3 84 kgs an 10.5 foot is a 158 right for me and will the width be ok?
Its all depending on how big your bindings are? Seeing as you wear a 10.5 boot, you are able to fit into a M/L binding. So it's all depending on the waist width. You should be good seeing as the 155 has a waist width of 25.2cm and you will need to get atleast the 158 seeing as you are taller. Soooo the 158 should be a touch wider whitch would help your cause. Now if you go into a L/XL binding, you will not fit on this board. Your toes will be dragging and you dont want that. Also this a reverse camber board!!! So if you are used to reg camber, this will feel really loose and noodly. Ive talked to people and they have said that starting on a reverse camber board is WAY easier to learn on. I personally wouldnt know seeing as I learned on tradtional/posative camber boards. But the posatives in reverse camber is a more forgiving flex pattern, kinda feels like your board isn't even there(whitch isn't fun for some), and more of a playful ride. But if you are making the transition from ski to board, you will have to learn from the basics anyways. Hope this helped
Because you are a 10.5, you will be in a large binding for sure. The other comment about reverse camber being easy to learn on is right. These boards are a lot more forgiving and will make the transition easier. The Hero is super soft, It is made to be a jib board for rails an boxes, if this is what you eventually want to get into then this board is perfect. If not, then you could check out the Burton Duce which is an awesome entry level board.
I have ridden a bunch of reverse camber boards this season, and the Hero is by far the best. Compared to other reverse camber boards, it is super stable at higher speeds and also on harder/icier conditions. Also, it has super good flex. The flex is one of my favorite aspects of the board; other boards with this flex pattern would have other construction features making the board urban shred session specific. Not the case here, this board has sick flex, but the other features of the board help it to rip in ht parks. Bottom line, I could not be happier with this board. If you are thinking of picking up a Hero pick this one up (the 2010)...I think Burton is going to stiffen it up a bit in 2011 (but I am not totally sure about that).
umm lil jump to a lil press??
sick board with good pop from the scoops. super durable taken gnarly falls this season, but board looks brand new. est system makes u feel like ur riding right on the snow being that close to your board. super responsive. has enough flew to get some pretty legit presses in. all around good board. definitely consider buying. youll be glad you did. EST IS THE BOMB.
does this website deliver to australia?...
does this website deliver to australia? if so does anyone know how long it will take to get here and if the postage is reliable? cheers
Call DogFunk Directly to figure out all that information.
So i am not sure what size to get either...
So i am not sure what size to get either the 152 or the 155 i am around 5"6 in height and i weigh 130 which size should i get ?
It kind of depends on what conditions you ride, all mountain, park, powder, whatever other stuff there is. At your weight I think you'd want to go for the 152. To give you an idea I weight 70lbs more than you and ride a 158 hero.
dude get the 152 for sure. not the 155!! I'm 6 feet tall 160 lbs and ride the 155.

whats the differnce between the burton hero and the burton hero ltd
limited edition graphics
True that! they are the same board but one has more limited edition graphics!
Completely agree with the other review by Bob S. If you dont want to buy the ICS or 3D bindings, get the burton retro discs and you can use your regular bindings. Its a really soft and flexible board and a sweet colorful board!! Recommend for sure
Burton becoming the better brand?
i received my burton hero ltd a week ago and just rode it yesterday, this board is amazing! i got this board in a 155 and i compared it to my libtech skate banana from last year the hero not only made landings smooth and jibs more buttery than the banana it had more control in pow than the banana. so in the end if you are going to choose one of these or a banana save 50$ and get this board. if you think you need to get ics bindings you don't if you go to any burton authorized dealer and get ics plates that work with virtually any bindings.
