Burton Family Tree Freebird
Here's what other sites are saying:
If you're reading this, you've figured out that cutting the cord and leaving the resort behind is a surefire way to get the best turns you've ever imagined. In which case, you probably know about the Burton Family Freebird Splitboard. It takes the experience gleaned from nearly two decades of splitboard experimentation to deliver a lightweight, insanely responsive pow-pillaging ripstick. It's built on Burton's S Rocker profile, which turns it into a directional freeride monster, plus it's ideal for the trip back up. When the resort boundaries look more like an invitation to awesomeness, the Freebird will take you there and back, no questions asked.The Freebird runs on a refined version of Burton's S-Rocker profile, which blends a rockered nose with powerful camber from the front binding to the tail. The modest 7mm taper works in conjunction with this shape to yield tons of float on deep days, without sacrificing powerful turns. When it times to skin back up, the cambered tail provides tons of grip, while the rockered nose makes breaking trail a piece of cake.The Freebird is built for speed, so it only makes sense that it uses a Sintered WFO base. Not only is it durable, but it holds a ton of wax to keep you speeding around the hill. The Pro Tip tip and tail reduce weight for faster spins and efficient skinning. The Superfuly II core provides a controlled flex and keeps weight to a minimum. Infinite ride ensures that your board feels broken-in right out of the box, and stays that way for the life of the board.
The Burton Family Tree Freebird(TM) split snowboard gets you into the backcountry quickly, so you can focus on carving up untracked snow-covered faces. S-Rocker(TM) applies a unique contour to the Freebird; entry rocker extends from the nose to under your front foot, and then transitions to camber between the feet. Compressing the camber causes the entry rocker to naturally lift the nose, improving float while maintaining speed through deep-driving pow turns and variable conditions. Surface area at the tip and tail contact points is lengthened to improve edge-hold, and allows the board to plane easier in powder. Directional shape concentrates pop in the tail and offers plenty of overall float and control. Wood core is snappy, powerful and durable; dual-zone wood grains, positioned along the toe and heel edges perpendicular to the core, enhance edge hold and add strength. Fiberglass in the topsheet provides versatile flex and response so you can shred everything from big mountain descents to laps in the park. Meaty 10:45 sidewalls optimize 2 different angles to absorb impact for aggressive riders. Tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight and improves powder flotation. Clean and clear, this highly-porous sintered base lowers friction between board and snow, improving your speed and overall glide performance.
