About the Burton Family Tree Leader

The Family Tree Leader Split Snowboard is Burton's hard charging splitboard that excels everywhere, be it powder, the steeps or generally making the most of whatever terrain that you are faced with.

The Leader Board is part of Burton's Family Tree collection. This freeride-focused series of snowboards is aimed at creating the very best big-mountain backcountry experience for all riders. These boards often use limited and experimental shapes that are designed to make the most of all backcountry conditions and terrain types, ranging from deep powder and tight tree lines, to choppy crud and steep alpine faces. As a result, these boards are packed with Burton's latest and very best construction technologies, and the Leader Board is certainly no exception.
Burton supply an easy splitboard setup with their strong, convenient and adjustable Split Channel. Waving goodbye to days of compromise, Burton's Split Channel features pre-mounted pucks for easy setup and allows for fine-tuning throughout the season.

The Leader Board comes with the Super Fly II 700G Core, Burton's mid range core which provides the best combination of strength, power, precision, pop and - ultimately - fun! Weighing in at just 700 grams, this is one of the lightest cores on the market but boasts an impressive strength to weight ratio that lends the Leader Board an effortless and controlled surfy feel.

Added to this is Dualzone EGD wood grain and and Squeezebox technology, which keeps the board ready for anything. It is strong, durable, lightweight, and has superior edge-hold, to keep you planted and stable, manipulating turns with incredible ease. Squeezebox tech is effective in all conditions, making uneven terrain that much easier to ride.

The Leader Board adopts a directional camber profile with entry rocker, which causes the nose to lift while camber under the feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions. A tapered shape with a wide, sweeping nose makes for effortless float and promotes smooth turning in deep snow.

With a wide waistline, directional construction and balanced freeride geometry, the Leader splitoard gives incredible control and stability at high speeds and in any terrain. Through the deepest powder, the steepest faces and cruddiest conditions, this big-mountain charger from Burton will take on the most intense lines that the backcountry has to offer.

Emphasizing on-snow speeds, a Triax Fiberglass layer is integrated within the body of the board to keep it hyper-responsive. Combined with a WFO Sintered Base, the Family Tree Leader Splitboard provides the power and aggression to take you to the skies. With a whole host of tech to keep it fast and light, perfect for pushing big mountain riding and exploring untouched powder fields without limit.

Features Include
  • FSC™ Certified Dragonfly™ 700G Splitboard Core - High-tech core that uses of end-grain woods in impact zones allows Burton to swap heavier woods for lighter wood species without sacrificing strength
  • Squeezebox Core Profiling - Burton's most versatile profile 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
  • Taper - A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility
  • 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's perfect for all conditions
  • Infinite Ride - Burton break the board in at the factory to maximise strength while maintaining flex and pop so it rides the same on day 1 as it does on day 100
  • Balanced Freeride Geometry - Combining the best of twin and directional, with a setback camber and stance-centred sidecut for a twin fresstyle feel on a flat base. Controlled tight turns with float and prowess
  • Split Channel Pre-Mounted with Channel Compatible Pucks - A strong, quick and easy splitboard mounting system. All Burton splitboards come with Channel-compatible pucks pre-mounted for easy setup and stance width adjustment. The Burton Hitchiker, Spark and Voile splitboard specific bindings will fit straight on, all other bindings will require a simple conversion kit to allow you to fit them to the pucks
