Simply put, with the Genesis our goal was to build the most comfortable binding ever, with power that stands up to the rigors of riders like John Jackson.
With a slightly softer flex, it combines anatomical elements that smooth and cushion the overall experience with the latest breakthroughs in hi-back and strap design to wrap and cradle your boots in complete suspension. Advanced composites keep it lightweight, while The Hinge (available on the EST® version) activates foot roll for less fatigue and easier ollies. Offered in two versions, choose the across-the-board compatibility of Re:Flex™ or pair the EST® model with a Burton board featuring The Channel for the ultimate in flex, feel, and adjustability.

EST® Baseplate Construction
By removing the materials from beneath your feet and replacing them with cushioning, we are able 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.
This Burton-exclusive technology utilizes a dual-component baseplate construction that flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies. Featured on the Diode EST®, Genesis EST, Malavita EST, and Cartel EST.

Zero Forward Lean HI-Back
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.
A lighter weight upgrade to the Heel Hammock, this two-piece, heel-hugging 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. Featured on the Genesis EST®, Genesis, Escapade EST, and Escapade™.
The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing like Keegan. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, our MicroFLAD™ systems give you twice the options of our traditional FLAD.
