The binding of choice for ladies who rip.
From park slayers to pow surfers, hard-charging ladies everywhere can't seem to get enough of the Burton Women's Lexa Re:Flex Snowboard Binding. It has a stiffer flex to give you the response you need for shredding steeps, help you lock into presses, and provide support on huge drops.
The Heel Hammock highback has a rubbery material on the inside that wraps around your boot to keep your heel locked down. This allows you to run your straps a little looser for reduced pressure points while still keeping your heel firmly in place and providing lightning-fast response. Dual-density EVA in the SensoryCant footbed allows your boot to settle into a natural position that matches your stance to reduce fatigue and improve control, and it has B3 Gel to absorb shock from harsh landings and minimize vibrations for a smoother ride.
The Asym Hammockstrap is reversible so you can flip it to choose between power or mobility, depending on what you're riding at the time, and the new Super Grip Capstrap wraps around your boot's toe for a secure fit that won't slip. Double Take buckles have teeth on both sides to make clicking in faster and smoother, not to mention more secure. Plus, it has Burton's Re:Flex universal mounting system, so you can mount it to any type of board.

I'd been dreading getting new bindings for about 2 years now, but I finally bit the bullet and got these. I'll start by saying I like their responsiveness. I definitely felt more control than I had in a long time. However, what good is all of that when the toe straps are coming so loose while riding that I'm constantly stopping or looking down to ratchet them back into place. I'll get back to the lift and the toe strap (mostly my back foot's) is barely touching my boot. The angle of the toothed strap and how they now have diagonal teeth is a big problem. The tooth strap should be positioned a bit forward so that the ratchet/rubber strap can hug the toe of the boot--instead it sits on there awkwardly and never gets flush to the boot. I've read a couple places that if you cut out the small meshed/netted looking section over the toe cap that they'll fit a little better. I've also noticed that they stop loosening up as much the more I ride throughout the day--maybe molding a little better with extended use. Doesn't help that they go right back to slipping off the next day though. I emailed Burton for clarification on whether I was using them correctly or if they had any suggestions for a better fit, but I never received a response. Good luck with these ladies.
So far so good..
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Gave as a gift to a friend. She's used these bindings a couple of times. Her immediate comments were super positive. She loved the releasing mechanism and the easily adjustable straps.

This is my second pair of Lexa's and I have to agree with one of the other reviews and say that my first pair lasted much longer and were much, much sturdier. I have issues with the toe straps not staying on. They regularly come loose and slip up the toe of my boot and I am constantly re-adjusting them. I try to get the toe strap flush with my boot but it doesn't really help. The ankle strap stays in place all day and I have no issues with the footbed or hiback.
Didn't hold up
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are my second pair of Lexa's and after 1 season's worth of use the toe straps tore in half and the ankle straps are quickly showing wear. I've had my 1st pair for 4 years and they're in way better shape. Dealing with warranty is a headache and won't be able to use my bindings for weeks due to dealing with mailing them to Burton and waiting for a replacement. Overall, the rubber construction isn't as durable as the previous years where leather was used. Emailed Backcountry 4 days ago for assistance and never heard back.
Burtons the way to go. Love them
Gift For Microblade
It doesn't get more basic than this...
I wanted my eyebrows microbladed, so I gave these to my friend who's a microblade artist as a gift, and she loves them.
The size chart is spot on, and she says they rock her world in and out of the park. Fun design if you like animal print, too!
