A new day has dawned.
Like something straight out of a space-age laboratory, Burton's mad scientists designed the Burton Genesis Re:Flex Snowboard Binding with next-gen tech for plenty of response without feeling like you're strapped into anything at all. Super thin, yet insanely comfortable Hammockstraps cradle your ankles in bliss, allowing your boot to flex naturally without extra material inhibiting motion. And that's before you factor in the toe-conforming Super Grip Capstraps, which offer a truly superior fit without excess slop.
This medium-flexing binding attacks anything in its path, from steeps to jump lines without skipping a beat, thanks to its Canted Zero-Lean Hi-Back with Kickback Hammock. This unique design cradles the back of your boot for tons of comfort, allowing you to ride without feeling the highback at all, especially when you're buttering and tweaking off freestyle features. There's a stiffer, dedicated highback behind the Hammock piece, which comes into play once you've fully engaged into a turn, providing the response and support of a dedicated highback for blasting turns and carving from edge-to-edge. Working in unison, this design reduces pressure on your calf while retaining the response needed to charge the entire mountain.
Featuring Burton's award-winning Double Take Buckles and helical teeth ladders, the Genesis allows you to strap in quickly with its Insta-Click feature. This feature requires much less effort than traditional buckle and ladder designs, making it easier to strap in, but also offering more robust performance without stripping the ladder. Sitting upon a Re:Flex baseplate, the Genesis Re:Flex removes unnecessary materials, reducing the deadspot inherent to traditional mounting discs. This design has a minimized baseplate and hinged disc that maximizes the flex of your board, also reducing weight for a lighter overall package. The Re:Flex baseplate works with any mounting system available, mounting to 4-hole, 3D, and Channel systems right from the box.

If you've got any Burton, Genesis bindings, snowboard set up or any other gear questions, hit me up. Best way to contact me would be to email (please include the best phone number to call you at).
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.

Purchased these bindings (2015-2016 models combined with Burton Custom Flying V) after demoing them at my local mountain. Love the technology that Burton has put into this binding along with unique features and style.
The only con i've had with this item is some ripping on the toe straps, but that could be for a multitude of reasons, including how I personally ride and apply pressure on them. I would recommend this product for any rider.
