The Goal of the X-base was simple: build the lightest and strongest binding with the absolute best ingredients. To do so Burton used materials like titanium and carbon as well as a space age design. The result of a collaboration between all the R and D at Burton’s disposal, burned down calculators and smoking hard drives. A hyper-reactive and incredibly comfortable binding at the lightest weight possible.
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.
With the EST baseplate construction Burton removed materials beneath the feet and replaced them with cushioning. This allows for substantial weight reduction as well as infinite flex, stance and feel possibilities without sacrificing edge-to-edge power. The baseplate is made of a single component 50:50 carbon fibre/nylon composite, making it extremely light and strong. With ThinBED cushioning for the perfect balance of being lightweight and comfortable.
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.
