This team favorite blends Burton's top technologies with a mid-range flex that's 100% freestyle-focused.
A pro favorite season after season, the men's Burton Malavita EST® snowboard binding has carved out a reputation for its ability to destroy everything that gets in its way. Features like the Heel Hammock, Supergrip Capstrap™, and Asym Hammockstrap™ wrap response around the boot for a seamless fit and ultimate comfort. Offered in two versions, the EST® model (which features the fluid mobility of The Hinge) mounts to a board featuring The Channel® mounting system for the ultimate in flex, feel, and adjustability. Winged hi-backs on the Dark Gray colorway make for easier tweaks and presses.
Asym Hammockstrap™ Ankle Strap: Featuring the same minimal and seamlessly comfortable design as the Hammockstrap, this asymmetrical pad and spine shape wraps the boot in response. Flip the straps for increased freedom, or run stock for power and support. Exclusive to the Malavita/ EST, Lexa/EST, and X-Base/EST. • Stitchless, Minimized Injected Design • Ultra-Responsive 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine • Ultra-Light Engineered Padding Remains Soft in Cold Temps • Laterally Supportive Asym Shape • Reversible Shape: Choose Between Power or Mobility
Rider Style + Responsiveness
Supergrip Capstrap™ 2.0 Toe Strap: 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
Footbed + Baseplate
Dual-Component Baseplate Construction: The material underfoot is softer than the material alongside the lateral edges. This creates a ride that is softer underfoot, yet stiffer edge to edge for a perfect balance of response and board feel.
30% Short-Glass / Nylon Composite Spar: Slightly more responsive than the 18% short-glass/nylon composite, yet still plenty playful.
30% Short-Glass / Nylon Composite Lower: Slightly more responsive than the 18% short-glass/nylon composite, yet still plenty playful.
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.
The Hinge: This Burton-exclusive technology flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies. Featured on the Genesis X EST®, Genesis EST, Malavita EST, and Cartel EST.
Canted Living Hinge™: This exclusive technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.
Construction + Materials
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.
DialFLAD™: 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. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, our MicroFLAD™ systems give you twice the options of our traditional FLAD.
Heel Hammock: This reinforced rubbery material 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. Featured on the Malavita/EST® and Lexa/EST.
Features Re-Ground Materials to Reduce Waste
AutoCANT SensoryBED™ Cushioning System: 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.
