Despite the name, the Burton One Hitter is definitely no One Hit Wonder. It’s the first season for this beast to roar around the mountains, and it is a fine addition to Burton’s Family Tree line. The One Hitter is a softer character than its family members.

This board is similar to Burton’s Skeleton Key, just a bit wider and slightly less tapered.

The profile is camber with rocker towards the front – this means you can expect plenty of power in your turns, a responsive ride and unmatched edge control, while still getting a nice bit of pop from the board. The rocker in the nose ensures you’ll stay afloat in the powder.

“The directional shape is ideal for cruising and carving”

The directional shape is ideal for cruising and carving, the stiffer tail allowing you to drive through turns. With a flex rating of 4, this is a fun and forgiving friend to ride around the mountains with.

The Burton One Hitter is a board you can take out for every occasion. Whether you’re in the mood for cruising down the piste with your mates, hitting any odd side hits, lapping the park, carving the groomers or diving deep into an ocean of white snow – the One Hitter’s got your back.

This is a board that treats the mountain as a massive playground, so you can be sure you won’t be bored while strapped into it. The One Hitter is a versatile vehicle, as precise as a Swiss watch with more power than Popeye.

Tester’s Verdict

Jon Bird LD Mountain Centre

“The Burton Family Tree One Hitter is a true all mountain beast of a snowboard, packed with all the tools you need to destroy the mountain top to bottom no matter what terrain you’re riding.

“The float felt buoyant giving a fun surfy feel in powder stash’s thanks to the longer nose with a bit of a rocker”

The One Hitter really offered a great feeling ride while charging around the mountain, with precise control and awesome edge grip while carving round the groomers. The float felt buoyant giving a fun surfy feel in powder stashes thanks to the longer nose with a bit of a rocker. With the short stiff tail the One Hitter packs heaps of power for popping one side hit after another. A solid, stable, landing gear means you can stomp with confidence.

The One Hitter packs it all into one snowboard, If you like Burton classics, this is one for you. A perfect seasonaire’s snowboard; ticking that all mountain box and being at home in all terrain day after day – all winter long.”
