The team’s favourite blends Burton’s top technologies with a freestyle focus
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.
This ergonomic Canted Hi-Back follows the natural contours of your left and right leg to maximize control and comfort. Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the Zero Forward Lean on select highbacks. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls. The higher the Forward Lean angle on your highbacks, the quicker your heel edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe, or back ’em off for jibbing. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, the DialFLAD® system gives you twice the options of the traditional FLAD. The reinforced rubbery material of the Heel Hammock wraps response around the heel of any boot. Run your straps a little looser and still get lightning fast response out of turns with your heel cradled in complete suspension. Living Hinge® technology eliminates hardware and weight and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and highback rotation independently.
Re:Flex® offers more flex and board feel than traditional disc bindings. The minimised, cored baseplate reduces weight and expands the cushioning potential. A Single-Component Baseplate 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 automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control. The B3 Gel, the same cushioning found in high-end boots, adds unstoppable impact protection.
Featuring the same minimal and seamlessly comfortable design as the Hammockstrap, the asymmetrical 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 minimalist design of the Supergrip Capstrap® 2.0 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. Be the first to drop in with the rapid ratcheting of Burton’s Double Take Buckles. Helical teeth and “Insta-Click” engagement combine for increased torque per crank, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use.
