The direction was simple: build the lightest and strongest binding with the absolute best ingredients, worry about what accounting thinks later. Burton recruited the team, cranked up the lab, and got to work. With hard drives smoking, calculations firing, flex tested, and scales calibrated, the Burton X-Base was born. The culmination of every R&D resource at Burton’s disposal, it’s hyper-reactive and incredibly comfortable in the lightest weight binding Burton's technicians can build (so far).
The Carbon Composite Ultra Highback is constructed with a super lightweight composite that is also hyper-responsive. Resulting in a highback that will provide a feather light feeling combined with laser-like precision at high speeds.
The minimised, cored baseplate made from lightweight 50:50 Carbon Fiber/Nylon is very lightweight and responsive with a dramatically improved board flex and feel. While the single-component construction creates a consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination. The Re:Flex FullBED Cushioning system offers a full coverage, cushioned platform that maximises comfort while minimising fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware.
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 lightweight Gettagrip Capstrap™ wraps around the toe of the boot for a locked-in fit and pressure-free 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.
