Why We Like The Burton Step On Splitboard Binding

There's nowhere more deserving of the energy savings of Burton's Step On system than the backcountry, so we're thrilled to see this tech finally make its way to the splitboarding space. The Step On Splitboard Binding combines Burton's top-of-the-line Step On tech with Spark R&D's signature split chassis to make a binding built for the ups and downs of splitboard touring. Minimal moving parts make these bindings incredibly intuitive while hiking and riding, and the strap-free design makes the transition smooth, fast, and fatigue-free. Like Burton's resort bindings, these Step Ons provide plenty of security for the gnarly terrain we've hunted for.

maybe okay for side country

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 10"

The nicest thing that I can say about these bindings is that they do ride quite nicely. I have a pair of the ion step ons and this combo felt great on the down. Unfortunately that's about it for the "pros" side of things I have now tried spark, Karakorum and phantom hardboots/bindings for touring. The step ons are by far the worst. While touring on a moderate to long day these things absolutely destroyed my feet. riding in the resort for a whole day I start to feel a little bit of pressure on my pinky toes. Never had any real pain or injury inbounds, just the pressure being just slightly noticeable after a day of riding. This pressure gets massively exasperated while touring. Both my pinky toes looked like raw hamburger meat by the end of the day. Not a size issue, I've been riding burton boots for years and never had any issue with any other boots. For any real kind of day touring these things are unusable. Next is the weight. Burton wisely decided not to post this on their website. These are WAY heavier than even the heaviest sparks on the market. on top of the weight the step on boots are so stiff that they might as well not have a tour setting on the highback. I have the super light phantoms and the heavy spark surges, and never really care that much about the weight difference between the two. The step ons were heavy enough to actually make a noticeable difference. because of the stiffness there might be a slight side hilling benefit, but it's nothing to write home about, and certainly not on a hard boot level. Lastly, for some reason they decided to put the riser lever underneath the binding. this made it much more annoying to adjust. it was also very stiff out of the box, and this could improve with use/some grease, but I'd probably have to amputate a toe before these things wore in I could see these as great for a side country set up but anyone who has toured and tried any other binding will be very disappointed.
