Big mountains beckon and this splitboard sets the standard for hard-charging control in remote terrain.
Big chutes, bigger drops, steeper faces. If these are the reasons you're getting a splitboard, it's the Family Tree Straight Chuter Splitboard you want under your feet. Inspired by the hard-charging style of Burton rider Danny Davis, the Straight Chuter is built for speed, stability, and aggressiveness to ride the lines others won't. The Split Channel board mount keeps the small stuff simple, so you can focus on setting your sights on something big.

FSC™ Certified Dragon Fly 600G Core
Dragonfly 600G splitboard core made of face wood at stress zones provides lighter weight without losing strength
45° CARBON HIGHLIGHTS HIGH TENSION
Carbon Highlights optimises each layer of the fibreglass matrix, adding a continuous carbon layer to reduce weight and fine-tune torsional feel for different ride characteristics. A 60° bevelled fibre layer gives a particularly agile and playful feel, while a 45° bevelled fibre layer makes the board more aggressive. Hi-Voltage models such as Antler, Antler Flying V, Custom X, Landlord, Landlord Split and Skipjack include additional carbon strands to the bevelled fibre layers to extend durability and further reduce weight.
Grain is used along the toes and heels in two continuous zones perpendicular to the rest of the wood core for consistent edge hold and added strength.
The classic, most versatile snowboard shape, optimal to ride with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still maintaining plenty of float and control in any terrain and weather.
18 mm narrower tail
A narrower tail than nose means smooth turn-in and turn-out, speed stability and more float in deep snow. There are various degrees of tail in the collection.
Recycled Sintered WFO Base
Incorporating a specially compounded wax deep into the pores of this extremely absorbent, dense, sintered material creates an extremely durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season long in any weather.
This versatile flex has more pop in the tail and a more robust nose that facilitates control and flow in any terrain and weather condition.
Improves performance through a balance of thicker, more powerful core areas and thinner, more flexible areas. Riding energy is transported to the outside, where the source of energy discharge is between the feet, propelling the tip and tail while stabilising and making it easy to handle.
Balanced Freeride Geometry
Twin or directional - that's the question creative snowboarders like Terje ask themselves every day. Balanced Freeride Geometry technology in the NEW Landlord ends the debate with rearward offset camber and sidewalls centred around the stance to create a freestyle feel when riding flat base. When edging, it's agile and fast with the float and power you expect from a directional board.
Narrower tip and tail reduce swing weight for more manoeuvrability.
This technology is only available from Burton. By "overconstructing" the board and then mechanically "breaking it in", maximum liveliness and power is created. Whether springloaded, rockered or preloaded, Infinite Ride™ keeps the board flexing, popping and feeling great from day one to day one, season after season.
The Straight Chuter is the link between Hometown Hero and Hero X, because it already has the Dragonfly 600 G core.
Hence the higher price. The 162 covers a wide range - but a little longer would not have hurt.
Nevertheless - very good All Mnt Shape with lightweight construction and balanced flex thanks to the Dragon Fly core.
