EST bindings provide the best flex and feel. They can be adjusted to anyone's preference in seconds. Just remember that you'll need a Burton Channel board in order to get the benefits of an EST binding.

Go everywhere from groomers to backcountry, from an urban assault to the half pipe. Fresh for 2018, the buckles and straps have been redesigned to offer flexibility that wraps around your boots easily and holds them in place with a few quick clicks. The Smooth Glide Buckle system uses the most reliable buckles out there and when you're on you're third season and they still ratchet like magic you'll thank Burton for designing and producing these themselves, instead of outsourcing like a lot of other brands do. For extra cushioning on the heavy landings, Burton adds B3 Gel and a SensoryBED™ so you'll experience less leg fatigue and can stay out on the hill longer.

Overall, this medium-flex binding is one of the highest rated bindings out there so you really can't go wrong with this choice.

Key Features

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.

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.

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.


Zero-Lean Hi-Back - Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the new Zero-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.

Canted Hi-Back Design - This ergonomic design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control.

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.

Living Hinge™ Highback Adjustability - This Burton exclusive technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your forward lean and hi-back rotation independently.


Hammockstrap 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.

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.


45% Short-Glass/Nylon Base: Tough - 45% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Baseplate - Carbon performance without killing your credit card.

30% Short-Glass/Nylon Base: Happy Medium - 30% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Baseplate - A bit more responsive yet still plenty playful.

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

B3 Gel Heel Cushioning - The same cushioning found in Burton's high-end boots are found in these binding footbeds, focused underneath the heels for unstoppable impact protection.

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 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.

Infinite Adjustability - Adjust your hi-back forward lean, switch up your strap length and location, adjust your toe ramps to reduce toe drag, even rotate your hi-back parallel to your board's edges to improve heel-edge response while enhancing tweakability.

Offering more options for micro-adjustments than any other brand, Burton bindings make us each masters of our own connection.

A solid okay binding

Burton Cartel EST Snowboard Bindings - black
Good: Burton straps are made of a magical rubber/plastic which grips your boot like Velcro. Overall very comfy. Not sure what the big rave over EST is all about, they seem comparable to any drakes or nideckers i've had in the past

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.
