The team’s favorite binding has taken on some special new features in the Malavita Red Wing®. The defining feature is in the straps: Burton's Reactstrap™ and Gettagrip Capstrap™ now feature Red Wing® Leather for a look and feel unlike any other. Details like the Heel Hammock, ample underfoot cushioning, and a mid-range flex that’s 100% focused on freestyle dial in the binding’s overall utility.
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.
Re:Flex™ offers more flex and board feel than traditional disc bindings. The minimized, cored baseplate reduces weight and expands the cushioning potential. 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. The Re:Flex AutoCANT FullBED 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 Reactstrap™ construction features a 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine with Enduro Padding and an improved wrap for constant contact with the boot. 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. The Gettagrip Capstrap™ wraps around the toe of the boot for a locked-in fit and pressure-free comfort. The Smooth Glide™ Buckle Technology features lightweight aluminum and lightweight polycarbonate levers which give you seasons of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power.
