The Burton Straight Chuter is certainly not a slitboard, where many compromises were made in the design process. Long nose, short tail, almost 2mm taper, massive camber of about 7mm and hard flex.

Test Results


"The Burton Straight Chuter is tuned for steep gullies, bigger drops and aggressive riding. If you are a little lighter you will need decent strength in the legs. Due to the aggressive shape, stiffness and range of use, it is rather a bit cumbersome to handle. The tail gives a lot of security and even in changeable conditions it can be rode quickly and controllably.

On the ascent, the Straight Chuter is noticeably better than the Hometown Hero and Hometown Hero X. Edge hold is solid, even in hard terrain up to 35°. It's well balanced and kick turns are easy. It comes out of the snow well and even in deep conditions skinning is less strenuous than boards that may weigh less but flex more."

Description


The Burton Straight Chuter is certainly not a slitboard, where many compromises were made in the design process. Long nose, short tail, almost 2mm taper, massive camber of about 7mm and hard flex. Either you love it - a very good riding style and a lot of power is required here - or hate it, there will probably be little in between.
