    Feathery light.

    Instantaneous response, cloud-nine cushioning, and airy-light performance unite within the Burton Diode EST Snowboard Binding. Tricked out with more carbon than any other binding in Burton's line, the Diode EST is well-suited for hard-charging riders looking to slay steeps, boost from icy pipe walls, and launch massive kickers in the park. Its dual-component EST baseplate mounts exclusively to Burton boards equipped with The Channel. New for this year, you'll find a SpringBed system underfoot for amplified cushioning when you're stomping heavy landings and charging over chop.

    Not only does Burton's EST (Extra Sensory Technology) facilitate infinite stance options and on-the-fly adjustments, but it also eliminates the "dead spot" underfoot by eliminating all excess materials for a truly responsive flex and feel. This particular EST baseplate is much stiffer along the lateral edges of the binding, with a softer material underfoot. This gives you the near-telepathic response and energy transfer desired by powerful riders without sacrificing comfort and shock-absorption. Another major benefit of Burton's EST bindings, compared to the similarly spec'd Re:flex versions, is the addition of Hinge Tech. Hinge Tech allows your foot to roll laterally for snappier ollies and increased pop when you're boosting from jumps and pipe walls.

    Looking to the binding's space-age highback, you'll find its semi-translucent design is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to tech. Burton engineered the highback with two flex zones, with different carbon/nylon blends along the top and bottom for extra response where it's necessary and a subtle amount of flex near the top to amplify comfort over previous iterations. Please note, the highback features a Zero-Lean design with adjustable forward lean that requires a tool, making it much more secure when you're riding at blistering speeds.

    The binding's super-flexible Hammockstrap is cored-out for minimal weight and maximum comfort when you're ratcheting 'em super-tight. It comes with a Flex Slider that moves the ankle strap out of the way when you're strapping in for maximum convenience. New for this year, Burton improved upon its previous Capstrap, offering up a Super Grip Capstrap for a more locked-in fit and feel over-the-tip of your boot. Both straps feature tool-less centering for dialing in a perfect fit on the mountain.

    As comfortable as a Hammock

      This is my second season using the Diode EST combined with the Burton SLX.
      Initially i thought the Hammock was a joke. But after just a few runs realized ,it does its job distributing pressure really well.
      But what really stands out is that one does not have to tighten the ankle strap much, just snug it. Yet still get excellence response, keeps the heels down, plus nice side flex= ride all day (incl.hardpack) without any cramps ever.

        I've tested/owned bindings from a range of brands so if you've got questions about bindings or want me to get you into the right snowboard set up that'll match your riding style, definitely get in contact with me.

        I've used the Diode Re:Flex and EST versions and really enjoyed these bindings. Here are a few quick points on each:

        Handling :

        If you're after a highly responsive binding this is the binding to look at. I've ridden these in both a medium flex boot and a mid-stiff boot and really enjoyed the binding for both.

        These are the step up from the Genesis in terms of a more responsive binding.


        If you've got questions about compatibility or sizing, run those by me!


        If you've got questions or want to chat about these binders before picking up a pair, definitely get in contact with me an we can chat about your riding style and which binding / snowboard set up will be best for you.

        I have FLOW 42-43 boots. Which size would you recommend for Burton Diode Re? M or L?
