Burton Barracuda SnowboardSTYLE # 107061
A board that can't be contained by terrain or conditions, the Burton Barracuda harnesses freeride-focused S-Rocker and a slight taper to bring Fish-like float to the entire mountain.
Not as pow-specific as the Fish or as freestyle-focused as the Trick Pony, this ATV pushes the boundaries of freeride into an entirely different realm of straight shots and pillow lines. With all-wheel drive Frostbite Edges, the snap and stability of Squeezebox core profiling, and fully directional crud-busting power, this top predator is the one to reach for in variable or unknown terrain.
FEATURES:The Channel: The Channel is snowboarding s ultimate connection, offering the fastest, easiest way to mount your bindings with the most stance options possible. It s also compatible with all major binding companies, so why settle for anything less? NEW for 2014, all boards featuring The Channel are backed by a three-year warranty.Pro-Tip: A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.Infinite Ride: This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.Squeezebox: This patent-pending technology improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate.Carbon I-Beam: This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.Directional Shape: The classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.15MM Taper: A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. Look for different amounts of taper throughout the line.Super Fly II: Core Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight. Further optimized for float in our freeride focused boards, and strength in our park-focused boards.Dualzone EGD: The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength.Sintered WFO Base: Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season in any condition.Triax Fiberglass: Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.Raduction level: 3 [Downsize 2 to 3cm From Normal Board Length]: Burton's patented Raduction design optimizes every element- from waist width and flex profile to sidecut and running length-letting you downzize up to 10cm from your normal board length. Light and lively, easy to throw around, surprisingly floaty, poppy, and stable at speed. Raduction will change the way you look at board length for good.Frostbite Edges: Introduced by Burton long before all the hype about wavy serrated knife edges, Frostbite extends out slightly beneath your bindings for tremendous edge-hold on hard, icy conditions. Powerful when you need them, playful when you don t, Frostbite Edges are hungry for hard-pack while remaining smooth, flowing, and forgiving.
