Burton Landlord 2017
The Burton Landlord is based on the older Malolo, which is made to get a snowboard that has a surfy feel that can still handle hard riding. The directional camber profile has camber under your back foot, with a rocker nose, to give you stability and pop, while the rocker nose helps to keep the board afloat in deep snow.
A pretty aggressive taper (17mm) makes turning easier, and makes it float better in powder.
Features of the Burton Landlord
- Directional Camber
- Directional Shape
The directional shape means that there is a slightly longer nose than tail, which helps give the tail pop, and the nose more float in deep snow.
- 17mm Taper
This means that the nose is wider than the tail, which does a couple of things. It helps make starting turns easy and smooth, keep the board stable at high speeds and the wider nose helps to keep it afloat in deep snow.
- Directional Flex
There is more flex in the tail end of the board than the nose.
- FSC Certified Dragonfly 600G Core
The core is made up of a combination of strong and light woods, to keep the weight down but still keep it strong.
- Multizone EGD
The grain of the core along the toe and heel edge is perpendicular to the rest of the core, to give a little more strength (and they say add edge hold).
- Sintered WFO Base
It’s a hard a fast base material, that is infused with wax to keep it moving fast in all conditions.
- 45 Degree Carbon Highlights High Voltage
- Squeezebox High
The core has a profile that changes from thick to thin, which gives it more flexible sections, as well as much stronger sections.
- The Channel
They work best with Burton EST bindings, but you can pretty much put any brand of bindings on a Channel board without a problem now. You get much more options for stance width, and angles with a Channel board.
- Balanced Freeride Geometry
From Burton’s site: Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry on the NEW Landlord ends the debate with setback camber and sidecut that are centered on your stance to create a twin freestyle feel when riding flat base. On edge it turns tight and quick with the float and prowess expected from a directional deck.
Fancy name for tapered tip and tails, which keep the weight down and make it a bit easier to spin around.
- Infinite Ride
The boards are built stronger than they need to be, and then put in a machine that “breaks in” the board. It is made so that you end up with a board that is already broken in from new, so that it will have the same flex, pop and feel from new that it does at the end of the season.
