The new freestyle standard.
Setting the bar in freestyle performance and all-day comfort, the Burton Malavita EST Snowboard Binding is a go-to choice for team riders Zak Hale, Mark, McMorris, and Danny Davis. Top-shelf tech, a versatile flex, and a supremely comfortable fit make for a binding that slays everything from superpipes and scary-big jumps to urban rails and powdery pillow lines.
A responsive baseplate provides the power and precision needed to carve icy pipe walls, launch kickers, and blast pow turns. The medium-flexing Canted Living Hinge highback is tweakable for styling out grabs and jibs, but still supportive enough to handle the biggest hits in the jump line. Heel Hammock lets you run your straps a little looser while still maintaining a responsive connection, meaning you get lightning-fast edge-to-edge transitions without squeezing the feeling out of your foot.
Only available on this EST version of this binding, The Hinge activates medial and lateral flex for reduced fatigue and snappier ollies. The Hammockstrap ankle strap has a nylon strip running down the center that gives you a direct connection to your board at all times, meaning your board instantly responds to your every command. Plus, the asymmetric shape is reversible to allow you to choose between power or mobility. At the front, the Supergrip Capstrap locks down your boot securely without creating pressure points, so you'll never have to sweat about it slipping off mid-run. Double Take buckles have teeth on both sides to make clicking in faster, smoother, and more secure.

If you've got any Burton, Malativa 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 these in the Re:Flex and EST and put these on the lower end of the mid-stiff spectrum in regards to flex. I put these just below the Genesis bindings in regards to flex. These are definitely a bit more oriented to the park/freestyle rider that wants a bit more give in their bindings without them being a pair of noodles. Overall they handle super well on hardpack and hitting kickers. I put these as Burton's truest "all-around" binding.
If you've got questions about compatibility or sizing, drop me an email and I'll see how I can help.
