Why we chose the Burton Family Tree Straight Chuter Snowboard: This is point and shoot at its very best.
Clapping eyes on the Straight Chuter you can immediately see where it yearns to be ridden- high stakes fall lines, narrow chutes, and steep couloirs. The fully directional shape with an elongated diamond nose is made to float with aplomb regardless of how deep a day it is. New to Burton’s Family Tree line for 2020/21, the Straight Chuter is a world class freeride snowboard.
A backseat camber puts considerable power through the tail of the board, driving your turns and keeping you solid through the whole arc. Transitioning into a softer rockered nose to lift it out of the snow and give you a surfy feel up front when you’re riding the white wave.

As well as a 4cm setback, the Straight Chuter employs a stonking 18mm of taper, not only aiding with the effortless float, but making the board more manoeuvrable for those tight spots. The wider nose is like a heat seeking missile, navigating its way down gnarly spines and corridors with confidence.
Everything about the Straight Chuter is high spec and high tech, designed specifically to cut weight while still packing a serious punch. The FSC Certified Dragonfly 600G Core, steps off the scales at (you guessed it) 600grams, which for reference is only a tad heavier than an average pint of beer.
