Supercharged suspension and ultimate comfort in a binding that redefines high-performance.
Rider Style + Responsiveness
Simply put, our goal with the Burton Genesis was to build the most comfortable binding ever, with strength and power that meets the demands of our team riders. Featuring a slightly softer flex and advanced anatomical design, it combines the plushest in cushioning with straps and hi-back that cradle and wrap your boots in ultimate comfort. Advanced composites keep it lightweight; The Hinge (available on the EST® version only) activates medial and lateral flex 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 boards featuring The Channel® mounting system for the ultimate in flex, feel, and adjustability.
Hammockstrap™ Ankle Strap: Reactstrap roots in a stitch‑less construction for ultra‑response with minimal materials. The addition of a nylon cross spine equals a more direct connection with the board. • Stitchless, Minimized Injected Design • Ultra‑Responsive 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine • Ultra‑Light Engineered Padding Remains Soft in Cold Temps
Footbed + Baseplate
Toe Strap: Supergrip Capstrap™ 2.0: This minimalist design 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-molded material improves boot wrap and comfort. Featured on the Genesis X/EST®, Genesis/EST, Malavita/EST, Escapade/EST, Lexa/EST, and Hitchhiker. • Ultra-Minimized and Fully Injected, Over-Molded Design • Ultra-Durable Glue-Less, Stitch-Less, and PU-Free Construction • 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine • True Wrap Toe Window • Conformable as Capstrap or Toe Strap
Single-Component Baseplate Construction: One material throughout creates consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination.
30% Short-Glass / Nylon Composite: Slightly more responsive than the 18% short-glass/nylon composite, yet still plenty playful.
Re:Flex™: With a minimized, cored baseplate and Living Hinge™ disc, Re:Flex™ dramatically improves board flex and feel, and reduces weight.
18% Short-Glass / Nylon Composite: A high-performance blend featuring ramped up strength in a soft-flexing package.
Construction + Materials
Canted Hi-Back Design: Your legs don’t go straight up, and neither should your hi-backs. This ergonomic design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort.
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.
Kickback Hammock: A lighter weight upgrade to the Heel Hammock, this two-piece, heel-hugging hi-back is literally suspension in a hi-back. Dynamic interaction between an internal spring and rubber over-molded hammock results in increased response and reduced vibration while your heel is cradled in complete suspension. Featured on the Genesis/EST®, Genesis X/EST, and Escapade/EST.
MicroFLAD™: 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.
Features Re-Ground Materials to Reduce Waste
Re:Flex™ FullBED Cushioning System: FullBED cushioning offers full underfoot cushioning that maximizes comfort while minimizing fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware.
AutoCANT FullBED: Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control.
B3 Gel: The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for ultimate dampening that’s formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.
Double Take Buckles: 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.
