The Burton Lexa Binding delivers women-only performance.

Get the job done
I have these and they're decent.
The toe cap fits a little awkward, but it gets the job done and the ratchets dont slip on the ladders. One of my ladders is basically stripped (bought em used on criagslist, came that way) and they still dont slip at all.
I got these because I bought unions in a size too big and they hurt me. Since I blew all my cash on those (and couldn't stand them, and my previous bindings were broken so I had no other options) i found these on craigslist for $20 with no baseplates. Got some burton baseplates through a thrift store and voila.
I'd highly recommend them if you're in a similar situation and find some on CL
3 of 5 stars... 7 model years later, that's pretty good.
has anyone tried these with non-burton...
has anyone tried these with non-burton boots? i have salomon ivy boots and i've read that the toe cap on the bindings slips off a lot. is this a problem when you have non-burton boots or just a problem in general?
can you post a picture of your boots? I found some pictures of them online and they look like they might work.
the toe-cap will slip if the toe box on the boot is very rounded, if the toe box on the boot is more square-ish in shape, you shouldn't have a problem.
I like them
I like the lexas a lot. I never intended to actually buy these, but Burton messed up on my pro form and these are what I got. I wanted a 2nd pair of the escapades. So I gave these a shot and I really do like them. They are not as padded as the escapades, but they are softer and pretty responsive. The toe cap fits big though, I have a 6.5 boot and I got the medium bindings, but I should have gotten the smalls. Once you get the heal cap angle dialed in...these are great bindings. The lack of padding does matter when you are jumping and landing flat or jibbing. I like the escapades for that reason. but these are minimal, responsive, soft and fun. Lots of comments on the look of them as well.
new & improved
Burton made some much needed improvements on their '07 bindings. The capstrap now has a rubber grip pad to prevent slippage when blasting through the rough stuff. They also lost the superfluous and annoying locking clamp on the back. The base plate is beefier yet still nicely streamlined, and the adjustment screws on the bindings received a protective cover. These bindings ride like a dream, super responsive. The plum color is supafly.
Comfortable...easy to install... good handling.
I liked the Lexas first off because of their sick looks. The cap straps function very well and the actual clickers on the bindings are good. They are somewhat stiff but could have been more responsive. Nice quality.
