The Diode snowboard bindings from Burton Snowboards are back and better than ever with a new, ultra-minimized highback to decrease weight. The carbon fiber-infused baseplate cuts additional ounces and enhances response at speed, while a Super Grip Capstrap improves wrap and support. The Diode is the lightest, most responsive binding in the line, and promises to deliver the performance aggressive riders need for slaying any side of the mountain.

    Burton Diode Snowboard Bindings
    Had '13 Diode and cracked up the carbon fiber back so I went with the new ones hoping/expecting the polycarbonate backs would hold up to my abuse. Didn't really expect much in the way of improvement in hold or control - but holy sh#t these are way better than before. The new strap and cap comfortably hug my boots so there is zero movment. The results are that I can practically hardboot euro carves and I end up holding onto riding drama that used to end poorly.

    Got an insane deal, too good to pass up on a pair of Diodes from a local shop unfortunately closing it's doors. As a longtime Union Binding user (FC most recently, Ultra, Charger, Force, Force MC's, Contact Pro), I was skeptical to pick up and try these Burton Diodes; however, the price begged me to grab them anyway! Super light weight compared to what I have been riding for many seasons, seem to hold up to hard charging averaging 4 days per week of riding. Ratchet system and innovative strap design works well, infinite adjustability and super secure, comfortable fit offering zero hot spots. The design of the Diode baseplate seems to be strong, yet pliable enough to provide board flex feedback right under the binding to the rider's foot-similar to that of the Union Contact Pro's feedback if familiar. Here is the kicker-a longtime pro friend stated that if he wasn't sponsored by Union, he would definitely be sporting a pair of Diodes; and that confirmed my evaluation as well. While well worth the cost for aggressive, experienced chargers, if you can find these, or even last season's model at a reduced price; pick them up! Can't go wrong. On the other hand, if you are the average weekend rider, pretty much any binding will work.

    Great binding for a responsive ride. Very comfortable and precise. Had some issues getting used to the new ratching system, but now i think it's a very good one.

    These are high end bindings that seem to be built for those that go through gear. The light weight materials used leave me thinking that these might break if I use them for more than a couple seasons. Time will tell. Extra precaution will have to be used with the use of carbon as any impact with a rock, branch, or even when unloading from the car could result in damage in the fibers internally. If you can actually see the damage, it's fairly significant. It should also be noted that the flexibility Burton built in to the base, to bend with the board as you go over bumps, ends up limiting the angular positions you can use. Granted this probalby won't be a problem for most, but this was a limitation for me on my older board. So far I'm not all that impressed, but next season will be the true test. I'll be rocking these with a Rosignol Experience.
