The Straight Chuter Camber splitboard combines directional shape, flex, and bend to offer versatile performance for those who like to charge. The use of high-end materials and top-tier Burton tech, the Straight Chuter Camber splitboard delivers on all levels. The Straight Chuter Camber is available in both a solid and a split, so if you’re looking for a solid board, slide on over to the Burton Straight Chuter Camber Snowboard Review.
Burton has done it again, offering us another slippery stick designed for both speed and control in big terrain. The Family Tree Straight Chuter Camber Splitboard is built for expert-level riders who like big steep lines and hard-charging. A directional board with a nose built for powder and a hard-riding personality, the Burton Straight Chuter is a big-gun-inspired weapon of mass powder destruction.
Having first tried out the solid version of the Straight Chuter Camber board, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the ride feel was identical. We won't waste time playing ‘the chicken or the egg’, what's important is how it performs, and I’m confident in saying that this split is as close to the solid version as a split can be. With that said, this verdict is a little shorter so if you find yourself wanting a bit more, be sure to check out that review!
Softer flex in the big nose lends itself to a playful feel in powder but is not so soft that it chatters when ripping hardpack and chop. Stability and speed as well as a surfy fun character means this board offers quite a bit of versatility for an advanced rider. While first testing out the solid Straight Chuter Camber board I had been expecting a hard-charging aggressive ride but was surprised that washed-out turns and surfy slashes were more what the board wanted to do, so when I jumped on the split I knew what to expect. The Straight Chuter Camber Splitboard is fun and playful, but reliable and stable underfoot at speed and through variable conditions.I’ve said before that the ease and limitless adjustment of The Channel Board Mount system is unparalleled. I’ve waxed on about this system before in other reviews (the Burton Hometown Hero for example), so I won’t dive into details, but you can be sure that the Channel System offers the greatest range of stance adjustment of any system; simply get yourself a set of Channel System pucks and you can slide on a number of different brands of splitboard binding.
