Mike Says: The Burton Baron is a mainstay for snowboarders with big feet. Much like the Custom, the Burton Baron is a great all-mountain snowboard with a freestyle twist. The construction features, such as triax fiberglass, carbon I-Beam, infinite ride, and 10:45 sidewalls, create benefits for all riders. The Burton Baron has the capability to carve the trees, rip a groomed run, slide a rail, and land a jump, all in the same run. The Baron will compliment riders who are looking for a recreational snowboard and riders who demand performance. The Baron is not too stiff, yet can still go fast. Look into the Baron; it will make you smile.

Brandon Says: If you are the guy that has those size 12 shoes and wants to ride the most popular snowboard on the hill, but in a wide version , then this is the snowboard for you. Modeled after the custom, as mike previously stated, this is the perfect all-mountain weapon to add to your arsenal.

This board is the most popular wide board available. It is great for all over the mountain. You guys with big feet don’t need to be limited by toe drag anymore. This board is a high performance board that is very light weight. It glides over powder while still allowing enough pop to dominate in the park. If you are a bigger rider, this is the board for you.



Features:
Sintered WFO Base :super fast. Period.
Dualzone EGD™
Triax Response Fiberglass : three layers of fiberglass (one lengthwise, 2 diagonal) to increase torsional stiffness for precise edge hold and superior control.
10:45 Sidewalls : The toughest angle for edges that results in a board that will take what you throw at it
Pro-Tip™ Super Fly II Core : Putting stronger and lighter wood in certain parts of the core provides snap, strength and reduced weight for uncompromised board feel and response.
Carbon I-Beam™ : very light weight carbon spine that increase pop and snap
Infinite Ride® : the board is “overbuilt” so it can be broken in before it is even shipped out. This means that the board’s pop and flex will remain constant as long as you are shredding.
Negative Core Profile: thinner core in the middle and outside of the board which results in more flex making it a great park/freestyle board.

Tech Specs
             157     162     167     172
Effective Edge     1210 mm     1255 mm     1300 mm     1350 mm
Waist Width     258 mm     260 mm     262 mm     265mm
Sidecut Radius     7.97m     8.25 m     8.57 m     8.95 m
Weight Range 130-180 150-200 160-210     170-220+ lbs


4.5 out of 5 stars for anyone with big feet, and a big wallet

Review from a fellow rider:
I have been snowboarding for somewhere around 10 or so years. I started out in the state of Washington at Stephen's Pass, Whistler Blackcomb, and a variety of other off the trail hills. Through that time I have gone through a large number of boards, generally 2-3 per season, in an attempt to find the perfect board for each riding style.

I generally run each season with three active boards and two passive boards. This means that I have three boards always ready to go and I have another two that I have sitting just in case, I need to do a swap out. I know this sounds ridiculous to anyone that does any boarding, but it's practical in my mind for a few reasons:

1. I have a different board for each type of riding that I do, which is why I have three boards. I have one board for each style, one for big air, one for trick/style, and one for all mountain. I don't really have a speed board, but that's because I just can't get the feel for the larger boards.

2. Another reason that I have multiple boards setup at all times and two passive boards, is because I change up my stance from standard to goofy depending upon how I feel that day. For example if I went huge the day before and my lead leg is feeling a little bit tender, which it often is, then I will swap leads. A lot of people can't do this all that easily, but I've been doing it for so long, that this has become normal practice.

I generally go boarding five days a week during the season, sometimes upwards of seven in the beginning and at the very end of the season. I generally ride away from slopes, because I don't part

Burton Baron Snowboard

Retail: $500
All Mountain Stick

Review:
When it comes to all-terrain freestyle, having large feet used to be considered a handicap. Then came the Baron. Now there's no excuse for stepping down from a challenge. Designed for the discriminating rider who seeks high-end performance and construction, the Baron delivers a lightweight ride with pop and quick edge-to-edge transitions for super-responsive turning. With optimized lengths and widths, the Baron blends all the best characteristics for an improved performance you can feel. Free yourself from dreaded toe drag so you can stomp that shit without self-detonating. Features: Sintered Vision Base, Lite Triax Fiberglass, Super Fly II Core, Dualzone EGD, Negative Core Profile, Infinite Ride.

~ This bomb-proof, all mountain board is a great decision. I love my Baron. I named my Baron. If you want to do it all when you hit the mountain…if you have large feet and don’t want to be restricted…this is the effing board for you. Perfect for anyone with a shoe size of 11 or bigger, the Baron’s wider waist allows even ogres to have fun in the snow. This board has great response, good snap in the park, and quality edging for hauling on groomers. If you want a GREAT all mountain board that won’t break the bank…the Burton Baron is for you, and you’ll love yourself for it.

I just got done riding the baron for 4 days straight and this thing ROCKS!!!  This thing holds one hell of an edge I am guessing due to the 1045 sidewalls.  I took this board through powder and over ice and never had issues with it.  The board is rock solid does everything well.  I guess that should come as no suprise since it is basically a wide version of the custom.  I felt like I got a years worth of progression in my skills in 4 days riding this board.  If you have a big foot and need a wide board you CAN'T go wrong with the baron.  I have never reviewed a board before and I don't know how helpful this one is but all I can say it this board is AWESOME!!!!! I give it StarStarStarStarStar and two thumbs up.

this boards awesome for almost everything, the only real problem is that its stiff and theres some things that are hard to do on it because its stiff...otherwise the board is great from everything from powder to the park...its really light which is also great for when you have a small kicker that you wanna do somthin off of
