RESPONSE

Using different combinations of engineered composites, we can fine-tune bindings for specific riding styles. Choose a stiffer binding for quicker response, a softer binding for a more forgiving feel, or stick with a happy medium for the best of both worlds.

CUSHIONING

Binding cushioning helps to dampen vibrations and impacts from riding and lessen foot fatigue. With a range of cushioning options, from plush to firm, Burton bindings will let you find your perfect balance.

WOMEN’S-SPECIFIC TRUE FIT™ DESIGN

Enjoy a more harmonious connection with Burton’s True Fit™ women’s boards, boots, and bindings. True Fit means that every element of every piece of your setup—from boot liners to lace guides, baseplate to strap designs, board shapes to flex profiles—has been designed and engineered around women and for the way they ride. Because when it fits right, it rides better.

DISC BINDINGS

Burton Disc bindings offer consistent flex and feel throughout and are compatible with all mounting systems, including 4x4, 3D® and The Channel™.

RE:FLEX™ BINDINGS

Re:Flex™ offers more flex, feel, and cushioning than traditional disc bindings, in a package that’s universally compatible with all major mounting systems, including 4x4, 3D® and The Channel™. The minimized, cored baseplate with Living Hinge™ disc not only reduces the weight and footprint of the binding, but also bends freely for a more natural feel that unlocks the board’s true flex. 

EST® BINDINGS

Burton’s exclusive EST® bindings offer the ultimate in flex, feel, and adjustability, with the option to customize performance by choosing between various BED cushioning technologies. Get endless stance options, a truer flex from your board, and more cushioning, feel, and control than ever before. Compatible exclusively with Burton boards featuring The Channel™.

INFINITE ADJUSTABILITY

Rotate your hi-backs, adjust your Forward Lean, switch up your strap length and location, and more. Offering more options for micro-adjustments than any other brand, Burton bindings make us each masters of our own connection.

GAS PEDALS

This baseplate ramp (offered in both built-in adjustable and clip-on versions) heightens toe-edge response and allows for a seamless fit with reduced toe drag no matter what boots you are riding.

FLAD™ [FORWARD LEAN ADJUSTER]

The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing like Ethan. We offer two versions, DialFLAD™ and MicroFLAD™, both tool-free and micro-adjustable for easy fine-tuning and maximum angle options.

HI-BACK ROTATION

The team favorite! Rotate your hi-backs parallel to your board’s edges to improve heel-edge response while enhancing tweakability.

TELESCOPING STRAPS

 

Tool-free telescoping straps let you adjust the fit in seconds.

MULTIPLE ANKLE STRAP LOCATION

Easily adjust the height of the ankle straps, riding them high on your ankles for more support or down low for more mobility. Note: feature not available on baseplates featuring The Hinge.

HI-BACKS

Choose betweena variety of flex, shape, and adjustability options to suit your style of riding.

CANTED HI-BACK DESIGN

Your legs don’t go straight up, and neither should your hi-backs. This ergonomic design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort.

GUMBO HI-BACK

Stiff hi-backs suck on rails. Our specially formulated solution is the Gumbo Hi-Back, made with more pliable ingredients that maintain the same extra soft flex whether it’s a single digit day or slushy session.

WINGED HI-BACK

Wraps around the outside of your boot and boosts lateral support for increased leverage and control when pressing, buttering, and spinning.

LIVING HINGE™ HI-BACK

This exclusive technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.

KICKBACK HAMMOCK

A lighter weight upgrade to the Heel Hammock, this two-piece, heel-hugging hi-back is literally suspension in a hi-back. Dynamic interaction between an internal spring and rubber over-molded hammock results in increased response and reduced vibration while your heel is cradled in complete suspension. Featured on the Genesis EST®, Genesis, Escapade EST, and Escapade™.

HEEL HAMMOCK

This reinfored rubbery material wraps response around the heel of the boot. Run your straps a little looser and still get lightning fast response out of turns with your heel cradled in complete suspension. Featured on the Malavita EST®, Malavita, NEW Stay Calm, NEW Stay Calm EST, Lexa EST, and Lexa™.

FREEDBACK HAMMOCK INSERT

This minimal hi-back replacement puts the heel hugging power of our Heel Hammock into your binding while eliminating the hi-back from the equation altogether. Feel the tweakable and surfy freedom of no hi-back without sacrificing your connection to the board. Available as an accessory.

ZERO FORWARD LEAN HI-BACK

Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the Zero Forward Lean design on select hi-backs. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls.

SINGLE-COMPONENT CONSTRUCTION

The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Using our book of material secrets, we can manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive. 

PROGRESSIVE FLEX CONSTRUCTION

We formulate our hi-back designs and materials to transition from a rigid and responsive lower to a forgiving upper for powerful response that works with you, not against you. Thinner cross-sections in the ears allow for medial and lateral flex that mirrors your every move.

TRUE OTT HI-BACK PADDING

Wrapping the upper portion of the hi-back with padding eliminates pesky pressure points.

BASEPLATES

We craft our bindings out of a variety of materials and engineered composites, with the flex and feel of each fine-tuned to satisfy specific riding styles.

Dependable and rugged, we’re so confident in our baseplates that we back them up with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE. You break it, we replace it…FOR LIFE!

LIFETIME BASEPLATE GUARANTEE

Burton will replace any baseplate for the lifetime of the original owner (with proof of purchase) against manufacturer's defects. Return defective product to the store where you bought it or call Burton Rider Service at 1-800-881-3138. All warranty claims should be accompanied by an explanation and receipt.

CONSTRUCTIONS: 

  • EST® BASEPLATE CONSTRUCTION

By removing the materials from beneath your feet and replacing them with cushioning, we are able to drastically reduce weight and explore entirely new designs. With EST®, the possibilities for flex and feel are infinite, and so are the stance options. Get it all without ever sacrificing the edge-to-edge power you know and trust.

  • THE HINGE [EXCLUSIVE TO EST® BASEPLATES]

This Burton-exclusive technology flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies. Featured on the Diode EST®, Genesis EST, Malavita EST, and Cartel EST.

  • RE:FLEX™ BASEPLATE CONSTRUCTION

With a minimized, cored baseplate and Living Hinge™ disc, Re:Flex™ dramatically improves board flex and feel, and reduces weight.

  • SINGLE-COMPONENT BASEPLATE CONSTRUCTION

One material throughout creates consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination.

MATERIALS:

  • CARBON FIBER/NYLON COMPOSITE

Supreme reactivity, weightlessness, and strength.

  • 45% SHORT-GLASS/NYLON COMPOSITE

Carbon performance without killing your credit card.

  • 30% SHORT-GLASS/NYLON COMPOSITE

Slightly more responsive than the Park Blend, yet still plenty playful.

  • PARK BLEND SHORT-GLASS/NYLON COMPOSITE

Park-engineered blend features ramped up strength in a soft-flexing package.

  • LIGHTWEIGHT, BOMB-PROOF POLYCARBONATE

Buttery and playful for laid-back, relaxed cruising.

EST CUSHIONING

AUTOCANT SENSORYBED™

Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control.

SENSORYBED™

An elevated realm of cushioning, board feel, and extra-sensory control in a versatile, shred-everything package.

SHREDBED™ 3.0

Minimized EVA cushioning with the added edge control of an optional Gas Pedal for accelerated handling. Featured on theDiode EST®.

CANTBED™ 2.0

Jake’s BED of choice, its 3.5 degrees of inward tilting mirrors your lower body’s natural alignment when standing on your snowboard. This lets you ride in a more relaxed position, especially when rocking a wider stance. Available as a men’s binding accessory.

PODBED™

Strategically placed EVA padding provides cushioning in common pressure points while a clear topsheet material evenly distributes a rider’s weight. An evolved indicator allows for more precise stance adjustment and the glue-less design is friendlier on the environment. Featured exclusively on the Escapade EST®.

RE:FLEX CUSHIONING

AUTOCANT FULLBED

Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control.

FULLBED CUSHIONING

FullBED cushioning offers a full coverage, cushioned platform that maximizes comfort while minimizing fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware.

B3 GEL

The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for ultimate dampening that’s formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.

NEW INCREASED UNDER-BASEPLATE DAMPENING PAD

Eats up vibrations and impacts in a new design that expands cushioning while reducing the footprint of the binding on the board for increased flex and feel. Found on the Cartel™, NEW Stay Calm, NEW Deathfalcon, Mission™, Escapade™, Lexa™, NEW Sidekick, and Scribe.

STRAPS & BUCKLES

We believe that the most effective strap is the one you hardly notice. That’s why every strap we make is based on the same Pringle-shaped, pre-curved spine, 3D® molded to perfectly match the shape of your feet and ankles.

HAMMOCKSTRAP

Reactstrap roots in a stitch-less construction for ultra-response with minimal materials. The addition of a nylon cross spine equals a more direct connection with the board.

DOUBLE TAKE BUCKLES

Be the first to drop in with the rapid ratcheting of Burton’s Double Take Buckles. Helical teeth and "Insta-Click" engagement combine for increased torque per crank, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use.

NEW FLEX SLIDER

Our NEW Flex Slider makes strapping in a breeze with a strategically stretched hinging zone that allows the heel strap to flex and fall fully open. Thanks to science these parts are now stronger due to a forced molecular alignment. Wrap your head around that one.

SMACKDOWN TOE STRAP 

It’s simple—the Smackdown toe strap saves you time. Set the strap size to your boot once, then smack the lever down to shred or flip up for easy release. You’re in and out in half the time as a traditional strap-in setup. Offered as an accessory, it’s compatible with all Burton bindings except those featuring The Hinge EST baseplate.

SMACK-IT RATCHET

We sweat the small stuff. Like the Grom binding’s oversized, mitt-friendly Smack-It Ratchet buckle design. Working with our own kids, we went back to the drawing board to give the littlest riders a binding they can enter, exit, and adjust all by themselves.

SMOOTH GLIDE™ BUCKLES

Feel how easy buckling in can be with the most reliable buckles in the industry. Available in two versions, choose single-component for all day buckling pleasure; or the upgraded performance of our dual-component design which offers a polycarbonate barrel for improved ratchet tongue life. All buckles feature aluminum levers and steel bases for strength you can trust.
