Equipped with Burton's exclusive V-Rocker and a softer flex pattern, this board is a blast on any park feature. Any intermediate or advanced rider will appreciate the Hero's playfulness in the pa...

"Burton Hero!!" 11/24/2009
Helpful Review?   (24) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Great flex, butters and spins easy,
  • Cons:  Shaky at high speeds,

Experience:   I switch off between the hero and a never summer sl-r. But i gotta say that i especially love my hero, for one the weight difference between the two is crazy.. My hero is so much lighter, and much more fun to just dick around on the mountain. I love to just bounce around the whole mountain on this thing! I feel like i can do anything and go anywhere on this board! Only problem i have is trying to go to fast on this board it gets a bit shaky at high speeds.

Yo intercambie entra "the hero" y la "never summer sl-r". Pero tengo que decir que amo la "hero" ya que la diferencia de peso entre las dos es impresionante. Mi "Hero" es mucho mas ligera, y mucho mas divertida para hacer truco a lo largo de la montana. Me encanta brincar en toda la montana con esta cosa. Siento que puedo hacer lo que quiera y andar por donde sea en esta tabla. El unico problema que tengo, es que al tratar de ir muy rapido con esta tabla se pone un temblorosa a altas velocidades.

this board is awesome it is truly a hero in my eyes.

mrsolsunshine
I agree the Burton Hero is a sweet board, but the Sierra Stunt is just as good at a lower price.

"Hero, SuperHero in disguise?" 11/11/2009
Helpful Review?   (13) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Soft Flex, Burton's V-Rocker, Catch-Free
  • Cons:  Same as every other Reverse camber board, Less stable at high speeds,

Experience:   The Burton Hero dominates the competition in the reverse camber field. With Burton's v-rocker, this board board floats fairly well in powder, and is catch free on the groomers. The soft flex makes this board super fun in parks that focus on jibbing. Like all Reverse Camber (RC) boards, the hero suffers from unstableness at higher speeds, but deals with it considerably better than the majority of rc boards out there. If your a jibber looking for a quiver killer, definitely take a good look at this board, if your into all-mountain, or spend you time in the pipe, or a super-park fan, I'd go straight to Cambered boards, you'll find a much more stable ride there. But If you want one board to kill them all, at least take at a look at this bad boy.

"This board +3 steez" 4/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (8) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Fast enough for all mountain, Powder, Learning tricks minus the pain
  • Cons:  Can't handle the chop at speed, Heavy,

Experience:   I'm an East Coaster coming off a Burton Custom '09 and the differences are clear off the bat. This board is just as fast as a Custom on groomers, but you can pop it without a Street Fighter 2 - Guile Flash Kick pre-load. And you can actually flex this thing without A) being a pro or B) straining a groin muscle. This isn't necessarily a noodle, as you can ride this everywhere. But while you're blazing down the groomers and you hit tracked-out/choppy terrain you better be careful. Slow down/pick your line or you're gonna wash out. There's no camber or stiffness to power through the bumpy stuff. That said, if you're considering this as a park/freestyle board PLUS ability to ride powder/some mountain, you're gonna be ecstatic. The reverse camber prevents edge catch, and the spooned out edges saved me countless times on incomplete rotations. It'll bump up your freestyle learning curve because of the combo of those two techs. Progressed from butters to 180s to 3s pretty quick. You know that point where you've learned how to ride fast, pop ollies off those rollers with your old board and you say I think I want a flexier board to learn tricks? This is that board.

"Fun for some" 8/27/2009
Helpful Review?   (5) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Holds an edge well, Easy to press, fairly good all mountain
  • Cons:  mainly excels in park and groomers,

Experience:   Conditions: groomers and park The board held an edge well. It was easy to spin but I did not love the board immediately. After a few runs the board was more to my liking but still gets put on the shelf for the custom vroc. I rode the 152 which is about the mid-range for a park board for me. I usually ride 148-154 depending on the day. I like the hero but there are no real changes from 2009. The board is a lot of fun and can be used all over the mountain.

"Most fun I've had in a long time" 4/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Really fun, Flexible, Holds a decent edge for something this soft
  • Cons:  Really torsionally soft - can be instable,

Experience:   Fun in a straight line, iffy on turns. Fun board for all around riding, but on choppier snow it can get iffy. In short, one of the best boards I've ridden, pretty flexible and easy as hell to press but will still hold up when bombing, although that takes a little getting used to.

"hero wide ltd" 10/3/2009
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  dope, good for it all, butter knive
  • Cons:  N/A,

Experience:   i have the hero wide limited 155.(same thing just looks different) so i took my new wood down to the jibyard ........an indoor park just the other day, and as for the board i didn't have the option to give it any jump testing. but railwise the shit is tight.you can get extra nice presses ,and with board-slide's it pops right to that cuppage you'd expect from regular camber. it spins smooth, feels great on the feet,and the ics/est system is genius. however, i thought at first the bindings were a bad choice...but after some excessively easy adjustments they turned out to to be a killer combination.

"great board for great price" 7/5/2011
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  awesome in park, can be used all over the mountain, great burton v rocker
  • Cons:  need est binding,

Experience:   i am a beginner/intermediate rider who weighs 145 and is 5.7 and ride usually a 152, but the end of the season this year i rode my brothers hero 150 and loved it. it was great over the whole mountain and loved playing with it in the park and buttering. it could also be good in the powder because of burtons v rocker. burtons v rocker has rocker between the feet and makes it good over the whole hill. when i took it in the park it was fine on average jumps and rails(im not a adv. park rider do i did not try huge jumps). i took it in the trees and it floated like a boat in the ocean. the board is also durable, my brother has had it for 2 yrs and still looks new. it does not need a lot of waxing. if you want a board comparison, its almost a replica of the sierra crew. if you need more info feel free to message me.

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Lots of pop, Smooth buttering,
  • Cons:  Difficuly to control at high speeds,

Experience:   Good for park, bad at high speeds (like all rockers). It makes buttering a lot smoother and really helps you lock on the rails. Board is best for park, but does all right for all mountain riding.

"Ready to Butter" 5/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Burton The Hero Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Great flex, Reverse Camber Board,

Experience:   This is a super flex board that mekes buttering lots easier, a very fun board but not so good at highs speeds, the color looks better in person, i demoed the 155, and the color is rad, if you bought this board you will used it better in parks, but you can also use it all over the mountain obviusly not like a regular chamber.
