Out of this world performance.

We're not sure if the folks at Burton used hard work and innovation to design the X-Base EST Snowboard Binding or if they just sold their souls to the devil, but this light-as-a-feather binding incorporates space-age materials and a leave-the-fluff-behind EST baseplate to roll out a responsive, lightweight feel that'll make you feel like you're flying. The combination of a single-component, EST baseplate, lightweight 50:50 carbon fiber/nylon composite hi-back, and cushy, super-secure straps ensure that your day on the mountain is spent in total comfort and control.

Dispelling the notion that the baseplate has to be one of the heaviest parts of a binding, Burton made this one using carbon fiber for an ultra-lightweight feel and dampened yet consistent response that dominates the entire mountain. That, paired with the lightweight and responsive Carbon Composite Ultra Highback, gives these bindings a noticeable weight reduction while increasing their strength, while the ThinBED Cushioning gets you as close to your board as possible while still keeping softening impact.

The Asymmetrical Hammock Strap is made of ultra-light padding that remains soft in colder temps, and has a triple axis spine for response and flex. Plus, the laterally-supportive shape is reversible to allow you to choose between power or mobility. Then the Gettagrip Capstrap is made of grippy rubber, and has a 3D-curved, triple-axis construction, to deliver extra support and a firm hold when charging hard all over the mountain. Double Take buckles use tracking teeth and Insta-Click engagement to increase cranking power, resulting in both greater strength and easier usage, while Flex Slider technology makes the ankle straps move out of the way to allow you to step into the bindings without obstruction.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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 X-Base Re:Flex & EST and really enjoyed them due to the lightweight approach Burton has taken with them. Rather than a full dissertation on these bindings, here are a few my favorites:
Lightweight:

The big areas Burton achieved their lightest binding was in the carbon composite highback and the hammock straps. Comparing these to some of my other binders from other brands, I could notice a pretty decent weight difference when these were mounted on my board. Oh and you've got no need to worry about durability since they shaved some weight of these.

Carbon Composite Highback:
These are a bit less forgiving than the Burton Genesis bindings and you can feel it in the highback. (Keep in mind, carbon is a material that isn't really intended to bend). I ride at 180-185lbs and noticed a pretty good difference in regards to flex between these models. These are super fun to spend the day going fast with and cruising around.

I'd highly recommend these for the rider that can feel the subtle nuances in the handling of their set up.

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

Questions:
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.
