Burton Bindings & Boots 2011-2012

28 Apr, 2011


Burton Snowboards is the biggest name in snowboarding with a collection of snowboard gear that often outnumbers everyone else in the market.  Their bindings and boots feature a variety of designs with support and responses depending how you like them.  Each of these determine the relationship between the rider and the board in order to drive the board down the mountain.

Burton bindings comes in three different mounting categories:  EST, Re:Flex and Disc.  EST works with only with the channel and features no baseplate so you have natural board flex, Re-Flex remains compatible with all mounting systems with a minimized, cored baseplate and disc is a consistent flex and feel through, compatible with all mounting systems for bomber strength.  New for bindings is the heel hammock, a rubbery material for extra response and the hinge which allows the heelhoop and baseplate to move independently.

In both women’s boots and bindings, they come in true fit which means every element was designed and engineered for the way women ride.

Burton boots offer the total comfort construction in some models so right out of the box, they are instantly broken in and eliminates the break in period.  The crossbone design balances free flexing mobility of an articulating cuff with the lateral support of ultra light jumper cables, giving more pop and press while being tweak friendly.

This is a sneak peak, not every model is featured in this post.

    While that hinge system is kinda cool for tweakin and jibbin, but I’m not sure if I’d like it for hard charging and hitting jumps. Wouldn’t that hinge just put extra wear on your boots? And I’ve already seen guys bust the heelcup off their baseplate on a Burton binding, wouldn’t this just create a worse spot for it to break?

    Added pop? Where’s the energy transmission from binding to board if the binding moves laterally?

    I’ll have to demo those hinged bindings to find out. I mean, I didn’t think I would like Magne-traction, now I won’t ride a board without it!

    Hi Keither,
    I am agree I am sceptical about hinge… looks like a bit of Relay of Salomon when they try to say to us that our heel cup needs to move when you ride… 😉
    What I really believe is Canted foot bed… Since I ride wide duck style, I did test (demo) wedgies bed of Ride bindings and have to say that it is comfy a lot, especially when you ride wide stance… but for any gadget of heel cup will pass on that … 😉

    For Magne-traction, not agree with you… of course I am base in East Cost and here there is so much Icy slope in the season that Magne-Traction is really helpful (I guess Vario Grip will be good too)

    Hi Francis,

    I said I wouldn’t ride a board WITHOUT magnetraction. Which means I like it 🙂
    I ride in Quebec so that would explain why.

    Ketiher,
    Je suis curieux, tu rides quel board en Magne Traction?
    Moi j’ai une Lib Tech Lando Pro Model 160cm 2008
    en 2012, mon choix n’est pas facile, je regarde pour: Jones Flagship, Yes Pick your Line, ou Rossignol Experience… Peut etre aussi Gnu Rider Choices ou Lib Tech Dark Series…
