Burtons goal with the Genesis X was to build the most comfortable binding ever, with power that stands up to the rigours of their team riders. With a stiff flex, it combines anatomical elements that cushion the overall smooth riding experience, while the latest breakthroughs in hi-back and strap design wrap and cradle your boots in complete suspension. With this binding, nothing stands in the way of endless days on the mountain!.
The two-piece, heel-hugging Kickback Hammock hi-back is literally suspension on a snowboard. Dynamic interaction between an internal spring and rubberised hammock results in increased response and reduced vibration while your heel is cradled in complete suspension.This ergonomic Canted Hi-Back design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximise 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 MicroFLAD™ system gives you twice the options of the traditional FLAD.
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 utilises a dual-component baseplate construction that flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies. The SpringBED Suspension System is like having a trampoline underfoot, the SpringBED suspends the rider off the board for amplified cushioning and rebound that is unlike anything else in snowboarding.
The pad and spine shape of the 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 moulded 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.
