Jake's binding of choice.
Setting out to create the most responsive binding ever built, the mad scientists at Burton's endless experimentation has resulted in the Genesis EST Snowboard Binding. It features the Kickback Hammock highback, Hammockstrap ankle strap, and The Hinge system to give you the most natural and direct connection to your board possible.
The Kickback Hammock highback uses a suspension system to cradle the back of your boot for immediate response on turns and reduced fatigue during long days. The EST baseplate minimizes the dead zone underfoot so your board flexes naturally and allows for infinite adjustability. It also features The Hinge, which allows the heelcup to move laterally for easier, more natural ollies and less fatigue.
Dual-density EVA in the AutoCANT footbed allows your boot to settle into a natural position that matches your stance, and it has B3 Gel to absorb shock from harsh landings. The Hammockstrap ankle strap is cored-out to keep it lightweight, and it has a nylon strip running down the center that gives you a direct connection to your board at all times. An over-the-toe design allows the Super Grip Capstrap to lock down your boot securely without creating pressure points. Double Take buckles have teeth on both sides to make clicking in faster and smoother, not to mention more secure.

I've used the Genesis Re:Flex & EST and can say that these are a pretty rad binding. There are a ton of features that I could go over but I'll keep this short and give you a few things I really liked.
The big thing I loved about these was the flex pattern. The highbacks weren't rock hard like other bindings out there. The straps provided a real secure connection, one of the things I think Burton excels at with their bindings. When I demo Burton boards, I do so on the Genesis bindings to keep things consistent but also because this one of their better mid-stiff binding options.
If you've got questions about compatibility or sizing, drop me an email and I'll see how I can help.
