Description

Wannabes need not apply.

Are you a sissy-boy wannabe poser? Then you should probably click the 'back' button. Still here? Then you must have a pretty good idea of what you're doing in the park, because the Burton didn't design the Malavita EST Binding for posers. The Malavita is a full-featured freestyle binding with a responsive rating on the stiffer side of Burton's scale.
  • Removable SensoryBED II gel and EVA cushioning under your heels and the balls of your feet so you can go huge without killing your feet.
  • You can also remove the cushioning for old-school baseless terrain-park jibbery.
  • EST gives you light weight and infinite stance options while improving board flex.
  • MicroFLAD forward lean adjustment gives you twice the adjustment options of traditional FLAD
  • Canted highbacks for left/right leg-specific comfort

Good Binding!

Very confortable, super tough. The straps fit pretty good.
If you have any burton ICS board, consider to ride Malavita!
I ride Malavita on Burton Hero and i can't complain!

These Bindings Rock!

I put a new pair of Malavita EST Bindings on my Custom X snowboard and they were as smooth as can be. I am a huge fan of the cap strap, big improvements from previous years. Ratchets work great and changing stance position is super fast with the est system. If you can upgrade to the EST bindings and boards I would highly recommend it.

will these bindings fit the Forum Contract ?

Responded on

No these are Burton's EST system which needs to go with a Burton ICS board. When buying Burton bindings for a non ICS board ensure that it has the baseplates and is NOT EST and then they will work.

Great ride

I teamed these with the Custom X and they work great together. The most notable difference in the design of the Malavita compared to other bindings is the shape of the strap. With the tapered strap it is easier to transfer the energy from your boots to the bindings and then to the board which results in easier manuals and quicker response. Essentially, you get to be lazier with this binding. The highback is shaped well and follows the natural riding position which also makes for a more enjoyable ride. After a full season of riding, they barely look used, which says quite a bit about durability. All in all, this is a great binding.

uuh how come some of the bindings look like the wings are unnattached and some look like they are attatched, for example the feats of a man 3/4 picture the wing is unattatched and in the others it is, is this just because of the left and right foot or what?

Responded on

The highback of the binding is attached the way a normal binding would be attached however there is a wing of the left and a wing on the right side of the binding that just extends from the normal highback. The purpose is to give you more lateral response when doing boxes or rails and buttering.

Would large size Malavita Bindings fit a regular (not Wide) board? I'm looking at the 157cm Burton Joystick.

Are the EST's just a more plush version of the regular Malavita's, or are they specially designed to use with the channel system and not on any other boards like a Rome Agent Rocker?

Responded on

The EST and non-EST versions are pretty much identical, but you are correct in that the EST bindings are made to work specifically with Burton's channel system. The regular malavitas will work with any board on the market.

Responded on

The EST binding with a burton Channel board is like upgrading from a car with manual locks and windows, to fully automatic locks and windows. You don't have to have it, but it sure is nice and convenient. I Put the Malavita EST bindings on my new Custom X and changing foot stances and tweeking the board is as easy as cake with the EST system. Just loosen two screws, make the adjustment and screw them back down. Its nice not to mess around with base plates and 4 screws. The other huge advantage is the range you get with the channel system. When I'm riding in powder I like to throw my stance back as far as possible, with the channel system you get a lot more distance to play with. I would Highly recommend them.

I wear a size 10 Halo Burton boot and have a 158 custom flying V board, what binding do you recommend and M/L binding? I understand size 10 is a large binding but have also seen recommendations to get Med size bindings. please help!

Responded on

Medium. That is your size for sure, it will be the best fit.

Responded on

I agree that with a Burton size 10 boot, medium binders would be best, but other boot brands like DC and and 32 seem to be a bit more bulking. If you ever go with those brands or anything bigger than a 10, I would say go with a Large bindings and adjust the straps.

i wear a size 10 burton prvt stock boot. will the large binding will b too big?

Responded on

Nope, that is the size for your boot.

Responded on

With a size 10 boot you are right on the edge of a medium binding and a large binding. If you want to easily jump in and out of the bindings and don't mind a little wiggle room, then go with the large bindings, if you want to spend a little extra effort adjusting straps and getting into the binding for super snug fit, then go with the medium bindings. All and all take your boots into a shop and test em out before you buy!

Hi, I got a 08/09 Super Model X snowboard for my hubby, His boots i size is 11. Do you know which size and Model of Binding suit best?

Malavitas

I got these in the CS blue. These are much lighter color than the pictures on the internet show. These are CAROLINA BLUE. The ankle strap is wider than the Cartels. These also have the B3 gel cushion in the heel and ball of the foot. Much more padding inside the highback as well. These are worth the extra money.

The est seem darker then the regular malavitas is that true or are the pictures just there to screw with me?
I got the regular ones for Christmas (too bad i got an est board so i am going to return them)and wondering if i should get the blue again or go with the black since the blue is really light,lighter than the pictures shown.

Responded on

If I remember correctly the color is a bit lighter than the picture provided by Dogfunk. I think your binding is more accurate. Either way, the Malavita is awesome, once you ride it you won't care what color it is.

Nope. Est bindings only work with Burton Channel boards. The regualar (non-est) Malavitas will work though.

I'm buying bindings and i don't know which are better for jibbing and getting big air, the malavita's or the flux ds45 ??

Responded on

Bindings are all personal preference, If you like stiff bindings then get stiff bindings and vise versa, the Malavitas are a good medium flex. The bindings are great no matter what you are doing, check it out for sure, you will not be sorry. Great, comfortable, good fitting.

Malavita

The Malavita EST is a work horse, with so many things going for it you can't go wrong. the added gel in the SensoryBED 2 under foot combined with a air padded high back make for super cushioning ride. With binder move easily from pipe to pow, and then into the streets. All in all a great everything go anywhere binding.

Responded on

Can you tell me if the ratchet where the straps go into are all metal or cheap plastic? Thx in advance!

Will size LARGE fit ION boots (the new ones) size 10.5

Responded on

Because of the tray size of the EST pad, You should ride the Medium EST bindings, these boots also have shrinkage technology to slim the boot down. The medium will be the right size.
