The Curated Take
The Burton Hometown Hero Splitboard has delivered many great experiences for me in the backcountry. This board was my very first splitboard purchase and I spent a good chunk of time researching the best options for me. Overall it's been a ton of fun charging through the trees and deeper powder. The lightweight feel of this splitboard has been confidence inspiring while skinning uphill since its not difficult to maneuver. I use Spark's splitboard bindings and the combo of both has been perfect for me. The only real downside I found with this board traversing downhill in shaded trees that were extremely icy, the grip wasn't the best and I feel a board with magne-traction would've delivered a bit better edge hold. Overall I give the Hometown Hero 8.5/10 rating and I can't wait to have more touring days with it next season.
