Once again, the Malavita is a freestyle favorite of both pros and us average citizens alike. Cushioning, durability, and a natural skate feel make this binding perfect for any freestyle or park rider out there. When you get this version, you're supporting an awesome collaboration between Burton and Red Wing Shoes. Red Wing has been making ultra high quality work boots for over a century so you just know these leather edition straps will last you. There's a lot that reduces leg fatigue in this model. You have the AutoCANT SensoryBED™ and B3 Gel for cushioning underfoot, the reinforced Heel Hammock, and even the materials chosen for the baseplate are softer underfoot so stay out until the last lift with no regrets. A unique feature on the ankle strap, an asymmetrical strap acts to increase power and support, but you can flip the strap around and a more skate-oriented feeling is achieved. This stitchless, minimized injected design has a 3D curve for the best fit and response possible.
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.
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.
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.
Reactstrap™ Ankle Strap - Minimized Superstrap Construction, 3D Curved Triple Axis Spine, Ultra-Responsive Enduro Padding and improved wrap for constant contact with boot.
GettaGrip Toe Capstrap™ - The Toe GettaGrip Capstrap™ has a 3D curved, Triple Axis Spine with ultra-minimized Capstrap™ Construction, Grip Fit and True Wrap Toe Window. It also features Super Lightweight EVA padding for premium comfort and contoured fit.
Designed to be conformable from Capstrap™ to Toe Strap.
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.
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.
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.
