When I bought this board, I was looking for a daily driver. A board I can use in a variety of conditions and terrains to feel in control, but also not work myself to death turning or popping. I was also looking something for that is geared toward big mountain riding: steep pitches, tight turns, littered with side hits and... Read more

The Hometown Hero features a hybrid rocker/camber profile, with a rocker nose and tail and camber underfoot. This profile provides excellent float in powder, while still providing good edge control and responsiveness on hardpack. The 3D contoured based allows for additional edge hold and float in powder. It is ideal for an intermediate to advanced rider looking for a medium/stiff... Read more
Ideal for
  • great for freeriding in powder, cruising on groomers, and even hitting jumps and rails in the park.
  • unique 3D Contoured base design that provides excellent edge hold and stability, especially on hardpack and icy conditions.
  • board's directional shape, set-back stance, and rocker profile make it easy to float on deep powder and maintain speed.
Not ideal for
  • fairly stiff board, which may not be suitable for beginner riders or those who prefer a more playful ride.
  • designed to be ridden in one direction, which means that it may not perform as well for switch riding

Codie Horn tested this product
The Burton Hometown hero is your all mountain board that leans a little more to the free riding side. The set back bindings give the nose a little more float in order to keep you on top of the POW on those big dump days. It's a great carving board that will hold a great line at high speeds. ...

Definitely One Board Quiver

Originally posted at www.burton.com on Apr 17, 2024
Been riding 39 years now and could easily say the HH 160 is one of my top 3 boards, the other two being the Stungun and the 2nd gen Fish. I ended up riding it all year, the board is comfortable at speed, great shape and waist width, great in the fresh stuff and love carving lines on the fresh groomers. Surprised how light it felt, perfect setup with Cartels

New Board

Originally posted at www.burton.com on Mar 7, 2024
I haven’t owned a new board since 1999 and I took this board out to Breckenridge with me a couple of weeks ago and I could not believe the difference between the two products. The board was absolutely amazing getting from edge to edge and I love the new bindings as well. I would highly recommend this board.

Ryan is the man!!

Ryan had great recommendations, was friendly, and very knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to find the right board and bindings for me! He finds you the best deal and charges you nothing in return. But of course I gave him a tip for his hard work! Curated is an awesome sight and I’m so glad I found it!

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.

5 /5
Started snowboarding this year and am determined to get real better at it. I've rented multiple times at big bear and have gone to whistler, but I've always wanted to get my own gear. When looking online and looking at various brands and sizes, it can be overwhelming for someone newer like me. It was great to speak with a specialist and get real time feedback, including video and audio. Jared was super approachable and helped me pick my first snowboard/bindings. Thanks Jared brotha, keep up the great work!

I started exploring Curated with Andrew well before I was ready to buy. I let Andrew know I wasn’t in a position to buy right out of the gate, but that didn’t deter him from being as helpful as possible. I even had a few rounds of re-doing my selections, and I never felt like I was being a bother. Question after question, he had answers for me and follow up questions to ensure he was giving me the best information possible. I can’t review the board itself yet, but I have COMPLETE faith in my selection based on all the conversation between Andrew and I. It sounds like we frequent the same resort, so I hope I get the opportunity to meet him and thank him in person!
