It’s no wonder the Lexa is a top pick for a whole host of Burton (and non-Burton) pro riders with state of the art tech like Double Take buckles, Asym Hammockstrap™, Super Grip Capstrap™ and a Heel hammock on your highback. Combined, these features provide a very high-performance freestyle binding with a precise response. The women’s specific True fit design ensures a more harmonious connection because every element of this binding has been designed and engineered around women.
The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Through material blends you then manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive. This ergonomic Canted Hi-Back design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort.
Living Hinge™ technology eliminates hardware and weight and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently. Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the Zero Forward Lean design on select hi-backs. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls. While the Heel Hammock features reinforced rubbery material that wraps around the heel of any boot for increased response.
The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing. For mind-blowing adjustability, DialFLAD™ systems give you twice the options of the traditional FLAD.
A Single-Component Baseplate Construction throughout creates a consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination. The 30% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite material is slightly more responsive than the Park Blend yet still plenty playful. By removing the materials from beneath your feet and replacing them with cushioning, it is possible to drastically reduce weight and explore entirely new designs. With EST®, the possibilities for flex and feel are infinite, and so are the stance options. Get it all without ever sacrificing the edge-to-edge power you know and trust.
The AutoCANT SensoryBED™ Cushioning System with Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control. Additional B3 Gel, the same cushioning found in high-end boots, adds unstoppable impact protection.
The pad and spine shape of the Asym Hammockstrap™ wraps the boot in response. Flip the straps for increased freedom, or run stock for power and support. The new minimalist design of the Supergrip Capstrap™ merges two materials into one technologically advanced toe strap. A firmer material in the spine provides a supportive and lightweight skeleton, while a softer over molded material improves boot wrap and comfort. A Flex Slider makes strapping in a breeze with a strategically stretched hinging zone that allows the heel strap to flex and fall fully open. Thanks to the science of forced molecular alignment, the Flex Slider is also stronger, making it worthy of Burtons LIFETIME WARRANTY.
Be the first to drop in with the rapid ratcheting of Burton’s Double Take Buckles. Helical teeth and a complete rethink of the entire package results in "Insta-Click" immediate engagement, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use.
