EST Hinge Baseplate (for Burton Channel) - The dual component Hinge is an all new Burton exclusive technology that allows the heelhoop and baseplate to move independently for a never before felt lateral flex. Mimicking the biomechanical movements in skateboarding, The Hinge flexes dynamically with your leg, for increased foot-roll and more powerful ollies.
Dual materials throughout provides a softer flex under your foot for better response and edge control when you're ripping down the mountain.
DialFLAD™ 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 or back 'em off for jibbing.
DialFLAD features mind-blowing, tool-free adjustability for even easier adjusting than the FLAD.
Hammockstrap™ 2.0 Ankle Strap - Strap technology has evolved at warp speed and Burton's newest advance equals more power with less material. The secret is stitch-less 3D modeling that weaves a soft and ultralight hammock with a stiff spine to crank up response in Burton's most comfortable strap to date.
Flex Slider Ankle Strap Hinge - The Flex Slider makes strapping-in a breeze, thanks to a stretched hinging zone that allows the ankle strap to flex and fall fully open and out of the way of your boot. Easy in, easy out.
The Flex Slider is also stronger and worthy of Burton's Lifetime Warranty.
Supergrip Capstrap™ 2.0 - This minimalist design merges two materials into one technologically advanced toe strap. A firmer material in the spine provides a supportive and lightweight skeleton, while a softer over-molded material improves boot wrap and comfort.
Smooth Glide™ Buckles - Polished, chrome-plated aluminum and lightweight polycarbonate levers give you season after season of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power. Designed and built by Burton, not some shady supplier.
Dual Component Base Construction - Two different materials in the spar and lower area create the best combination of response and feel.
30% Short-Glass/Nylon Base: Happy Medium - 30% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Baseplate - A bit more responsive yet still plenty playful.
SensoryBED Cushioning System - An elevated realm of cushioning, board feel, and extra-sensory control in a versatile, shred-everything package.
Metal-Free Construction - Why no metal? Burton refuses to ride metal because it's too rigid, too heavy, and too likely to bend and distort. Instead, Burton crafts their bindings out of a variety of other materials, each engineered to satisfy specific riding styles.
Re-Ground Materials to Reduce Waste - Burton believes that being environmentally and sustainably conscious is the best business practice out there. That is why they integrate recycled, re-ground material into the quality products they make everyday, which means less garbage in the landfill and more premium Burton gear for you.
Lifetime Warranty (Limited, See Details) - Covered under manufacturer lifetime guarantee against breakage of the baseplate or heelcup along with defects in materials or workmanship. This lifetime warranty DOES NOT cover broken bindings due to abuse or neglect, damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility, or lost parts due to lack of hardware maintenance.
Burton's Flex Slider hinged strap IS covered under their Lifetime Warranty.
Highbacks, other straps, ratchets and other binding components are not included under lifetime warranty.
|Men's Boot Sizes (US):||8 - 11|
Bad: Sizes are always between large and medium!when will a company cater to the average size 10 foot. Mediums were too small on my Salomon size 10 boot so got the large, which seem a bit big. I cut the excess straps off. Forward lean is pretty weird. I love my forward lean and the adjustment on these seems ready to break at any second. I've only put on 4 full days in powder and heavy powder so my opinion will likely change.
Overall: if you find these on sale i,d recommend then. It might be worth looking into genesis or diodes if your a fast, aggressive person looking for more support and better forward lean adjustment.
