Dialed-in freestyle dominator.
Ridden by the likes of Mark McMorris, Danny Davis, and Jeremy Jones, the Burton Malavita Re:Flex Snowboard Binding is a freestyle favorite among the top pros on earth. One look at the deadspot-reducing Re:Flex technology, AutoCant FullBed, and Zero-Lean Hi-Back with Heel Hammock and you'll suddenly realize why this binding crushes anything in its path. It's a bit softer than the Cartel, falling in the medium responsiveness range, which actually makes it a killer all-terrain freestyle binding as well.
Designed with Burton's Single-Component Re:Flex baseplate, the Malavita Re:Flex removes unnecessary materials, reducing the deadspot inherent to traditional mounting discs. This design has a minimized baseplate and hinged disc that maximizes the flex of your board, also reducing weight for a lighter overall package. The Re:Flex baseplate works with any mounting system available, mounting to 4-hole, 3D, and Channel systems right out of the box.
Adding a bit of play for tweaking tricks, yet still delivering tons of response when you're carving from heel-to-toe, the binding's Single-Component, Living Hinge, Zero-Lean Hi-Back has a Heel Hammock to cradle the back of your boot comfortably against the binding. There's tool-less Dial-Flad adjustment, allowing you to crank in the forward lean, should you lap the pipe or carve aggressively down the mountain.
Cushioning your jumps and landings, the binding's AutoCant FullBed features B3 Gel for optimum shock absorption from heavy hits. And because the instep's EVA foam is softer than that on the outside, the binding naturally conforms to your stance for a more comfortable riding experience. Additionally, the Malavita Re:Flex features an Asym Reactstrap that can be switched around, should you choose to have more support on the inside of the strap. Plus, there's a Gettagrip Capstrap that secures tightly over your toe for a precise fit without any slop.
New for this year, the Malavita Re:Flex uses Burton's Double Take Buckles that are normally found on the Genesis. These buckles have helical teeth and 'Insta-Click' for immediate engagement. The result is a binding that ratchets in faster with fewer cranks for your desired tightness.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm not a huge fan of Burton. But i have been riding customs since Jeff Goldblum was making appearances in Jurassic Park. I decided to spend a little more on my bindings this time and haven't noticed any spectacular differences. They are a little heavier, but they certainly get the job done.
