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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

It's great for anything from jibbin' around on a spring day to hitting some serious cliffs up at Baker. I'd recommend the Malavita to anyone.
The flex rating on these guys is a 6/10, so for the type of riding I do (a good mix of groomers and park, with some fresh pow when they conditions allow), these fit the bill.
The auto cant is super squishy and comfortable. The ratchet system is flawless with the easiest release I've ever had. The asymmetrical straps are comfy (although I don't see much difference from symmetrical straps).
Overall, this binding is very responsive when I'm flyin' down a black and flexible enough when I'm hitting rails and kickers in the park. You can't go wrong with these, and not mention the color combos are awesome (i went with the red).
