The Malavita EST® is an intermediate to advanced level freestyle binding designed for Burton Channel boards to maximize board feel, board flex, reduce weight and optimize stance customization. The Heel Hammock and DialFLAD™ system offer you ultimate, on the fly, adjustability for lean while the asym Hammockstrap™ ankle strap and Supergrip Capstrap™ 2.0 keep you comfortable while increasing power and support. The Re:Flex™ Baseplate and AutoCANT FullBED offers maximum cushioning to absorb vibrations for a smoother ride and softer landings. Highlighted as a park binding, but great on the whole mountain, the Malavitas are ready for kickers, rails, cliffs, groomers, chowder and of course that dreamy powder.
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.
Heel Hammock - This reinforced rubbery material wraps response around the heel of the boot. Run your straps a little looser and still get lighting fast response out of turns with your heel cradled in complete suspension.
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.
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.
The Hinge™ Lateral Movement - This Burton-exclusive technology flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies.
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.
Asym Hammockstrap™ Ankle Strap - A stitch-less strap with 3D modeling that weaves a soft, ultralight hammock with a stiff spine to increase response and comfort. The asymmetrical Hammock allows you to flip the strap for increased freedom or run stock for power and support.
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.
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.
