There aren't too many innovations that completely change the game twice. The Burton Channel is one of the few. Back in 2007, the Channel changed everything for standard snowboards. Well, Burton has done it again with the Family Tree Landlord Splitboard. Because of how splitboards are designed, the Landlord actually has four channels, but if you've ever set up a splitboard and struggled with those friggin' pucks, you can see why this is a big deal. Splitboards have traditionally used drilled inserts to mount the binding pucks. Because these inserts offer a finite range of angles, getting the pucks lined up exactly has always been a hassle. Because the channel offers an infinite range of angles, however, getting the pucks lined up is a snap. This also makes it possible to get your stance exactly right, since you aren't stuck using a preset angle. Also, because it's so easy, you'll be more inclined to get it exactly right, rather than just getting it close and leaving it, which used to be the norm. The S-Rocker profile is rockered from the nose to the front binding, then cambered from the front binding to the tail for effortless float and stability in deep snow without compromising edge power and precision. The Superfly II core uses lightweight woods that specifically target strategic areas to drop weight and increase pop, and this season all the wood is FSC-certified so you know you're not destroying the rainforest for a snowboard. Dualzone EGD adds edge control by placing perpendicular strips of wood along the edges. 45 Carbon Highlights Hi-Voltage glass weaves carbon fibers into the fiberglass and adds a tip-to-tail layer of carbon fiber for lightweight response and strength. Finally, Burton added an ultra-fast sintered base so you can leave vapor trails all over the backcountry.
The Burton Landlord Splitboard ends the days of compromise. On the up or on the down, you'll own that off-piste property and make that untracked pow your canvas.
