The Burton Genesis is a lightweight binding designed for more advanced all-terrain riders with a stiffer, more responsive flex rating and a ton of comfortable tech. To start off, the baseplate is made of a Short-Glass/Nylon composite throughout, giving you a uniform feel that's strong and flexible simultaneously. The FullBed Cushioning System made up of dual-density EVA foam is responsive to your weight and gives you better control, while the canted, Zero-Lean hi-back features a root position at zero forward-lean, allowing for a more playful feel. The MicroFLAD™ lets you adjust your forward lean without tools and the canting gives you the ollie advantage by shaping the hi-back to your body's shape.

Re:Flex™ Baseplate - With a minimized, cored baseplate and Living Hinge disc, Re:Flex dramatically improves board flex and feel, reduces weight, and opens the doors for all sorts of cushioning options.
Re:Flex increases board flex and feel by a whopping 71% for more natural taste and texture than that of traditional disc bindings, all in a package that's compatible with any platter, including 4-Hole insert patterns, Burton 3D hole patterns and the latest generation of The Channel.
The minimized, cored baseplate reduces weight by 20%, while a Living Hinge disc delivers heaps of flex and allows for all sorts of cushioned toppings.
Kickback Heel Hammock - A lighter weight upgrade to the Heel Hammock, this two-piece, heel-hugging hi-back is literally suspension on a snowboard.
Double Take Buckles with Insta-Click - Helical teeth and a complete rethink of the entire package results in "Insta-Click" immediate engagement, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed and ease of use.
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.
18% Short-Glass/Nylon Material: Soft Flex - 18% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Hi-Back - Park-engineered blend features ramped up strength and response in a soft-flexing package.
Canted Hi-Back Design - This ergonomic design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control.
MicroFLAD™ 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.
MicroFLAD™ features mind-blowing, tool-free, micro-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.
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.
Single Component Base Construction - One material throughout creates consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination.
30% Short-Glass/Nylon Base: Happy Medium - 30% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Baseplate - A bit more responsive yet still plenty playful.
AutoCANT FullBED 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.
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.

I had to make several adjustments for fit since I got the smaller size for my foot, but once I got that dialed in I had less trouble getting the bindings to ratchet in.
Since I didn't ride my new board with my old bindings, it's hard to say where the board and the bindings leave off in terms of performance, but one thing I did notice is that I DIDN'T notice these bindings.
One thing I did notice is that these seem "softer" than my other bindings, maybe because of the cushier footbed.
The flex is probably partly why I didn't really notice these on my feet. They have a very "natural" feel on the board (I'm riding a Lib Tech BRD).
I also noticed the back risers were far more comfortable with no setting adjustments.
Overall my new ride is in great shape with these sweet bindings.
