Quickly becoming the go-to binding for the Burton team and beyond, the Malavita balances full wrap response around your boots with a mid-range flex that’s 100 % focused on freestyle. Features like the Heel Hammock and Asym Hammockstrap™ dial in response to the on-snow la vida of riders like McMorris, Davis, and Hale.
The single component, Heel Hammock hi-back is literally suspension on a snowboard. Dynamic interaction between an internal spring and rubberized hammock results in increased response and reduced vibration while your heel is cradled in complete suspension. The ergonomic Canted Hi-Back design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort. 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. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, the DialFLAD™ system gives you twice the options of the traditional FLAD. Living Hinge™ technology eliminates hardware and weight and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.
The material underfoot is softer than the material alongside the lateral edges. This Dual-Component Baseplate Construction creates a ride that is softer underfoot, yet stiffer edge to edge for a perfect balance of response and board feel. By removing the materials from beneath your feet and replacing it 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 Burton-exclusive The Hinge technology utilizes a dual-component baseplate construction that flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies. 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 adds unstoppable impact protection.
The pad and spine shape of the asymmetric Hammockstrap™ wraps the boot in response. Flip the straps for increased freedom, or run stock for power and support. The minimalist design of the Super Grip 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.
