Burton Family Tree Tough Cat Snowboard

All-mountain aggression and bomber durability in our fastest-turning, most responsive Family Tree deck yet.

We named it the Tough Cat because aggressive, high performance pow boards are not for the faint of heart. The most responsive board in the Family Tree line features the most aggressive sidecut that any Burton board has had in over a decade. Beefier edges all around also make it one of the most durable decks in the line, while an FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core with the pop and power of Squeezebox guarantees a smooth ride and snappy flex no matter what terrain you drop in on. Rugged, hard-carving and quick – this cat will claw its way through anything.

Bend
Directional Camber

Directional Camber

Entry rocker causes the nose to lift while camber under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep-driving turns and variable conditions.

Shape
Directional Shape

Directional Shape

The classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.

Flex
Directional Flex

Directional Flex

This flex features increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose that allows riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.

Core
FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core

FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core

Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength, and reduced weight.

Dualzone™ EGD™

Dualzone™ EGD™

Engineered wood grains for more edge-hold, response, and strength.

The wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges on two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge-hold and added strength.

Fiberglass
Triax™ Fiberglass

Triax™ Fiberglass

Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.

Base
Recycled Sintered WFO Base

Recycled Sintered WFO Base

Infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra-absorbent, high-density sintered material results in an ultra-durable base that stays Wide F!#@ing Open all season in any condition.

Mounting
The Channel™

The Channel™

Stronger, faster, easier, and more adjustable—The Channel™ gives you ultimate control of your stance and your board in a design compatible with all major bindings (not just Burton’s). Better yet, all boards with The Channel are fully covered by a 3-year warranty. This means that if you have any issue with any part of the board, even if The Channel is in mint condition, you are covered.

Features
Squeezebox

Squeezebox

Profiled core for easier board control, more energy, and pop.

Our most versatile Squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable, and easier to manipulate.

Carbon I-Beam™

Carbon I-Beam™

This ultra-light carbon backbone increases pop and longitudinal snap.

Balanced Freeride Geometry

Balanced Freeride Geometry

Twin or directional is the age-old question for creative rippers like Terje. Balanced Freeride Geometry on the Landlord, Landlord Split, Flight Attendant, NEW Gate Keeper, High Spirits, and Anti-Social ends the debate with setback camber and a sidecut that is 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.

Pro-Tip™

Pro-Tip™

A tapered tip and tail thickness reduces swing weight for easier mobility.

Infinite Ride™

Infinite Ride™

This Burton-exclusive technology allows us to maximize pop and strength by overbuilding the board, then putting it in a machine that breaks in the board for you. Whether you choose to ride Springloaded, Rocker, or Camber, rest assured that with Infinite Ride™ your board will maintain its flex, pop, and feel from the first day forward, season after season.
