Meh.... Not great should do
Agree with other review if you ride "duck" with a plus front minus back binding setting you will have to fight with the gear to get the elevator to line up with your bindings otherwise havent ridden yet but seem as though they will hold up.

is there any binding elevator out there yet that will adapt to the EST system?
No, not yet.

can i use these to adapt an ics board to 4x4 bolt-pattern bindings if i don't like the groove-mount bindings on the market?
Nope. Sorry but this plate will not provide that option for you.
No, you cannot... The current risers do not currently work in association with the channel.
However, you can use ANY Burton, or recent Forum, bindings as long as you have the retro compatible disks that shipped with your stick.
In my personal opinion, you should drop some EST bindings on your channel board for unprecedented board flex and feel!
DO NOT BUY!
This is what they looked like after I removed them from my board. I hadnt even ridden on it yet--thank god. They would have broken.
Update--DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! Burton will be contacted.
UPDATE 10/24/09: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! I just removed these from my board as I have upgraded to better boots with a smaller footprint and didnt need these anymore. I havent even riden on them yet---they were only mounted on the board. Thank god I removed them! Around the screw holes where you screw them to the board there are cracks radiating out from the holes molded in the elevators. These are not just small little cracks, but stress cracks over an inch long in length. It looks like a "starburst" around the holes. I fully believe that these wouldnt even last a day, and if they to were let go while riding they would cause serious injury. Like I said----DO NOT BUY!
So I just installed these on my new board, and I am not totally impressed. The plastic used doesnt feel like it will hold up for more than one season, but I unfortunatly already used the screws to try to mount it, and therefore it cant be returned. When strapped in and trying to move the board, I can hear them squeeking under my bindings, which is a little unsettling. I havent used them on a mountain yet, but they seem like they definitly help to get the board on edge. Also, the holes you use to mount the bindings onto them arent centered, so they stick out more on one side more than the other....it just looks like they are cobbled together. I have read a lot of great reviews of them, so I guess we will see, as my initial impressions of them arent that great.Oh yeah...you mount them loosely on your board, then pull the "flaps" out towards the edge of the board to get the right angle/stance. However, if you ride like me (12front/-12rear), when you do this to the back elevator it only turns to give you (+) degrees of rotation! Why they didnt make one for each is beyond me. I had to play with it to turn the disk inside the flaps to get back to the (-), which is hard as the "gearing" inside really doesnt allow for that (you can see the gearing in the picture).I have a funny feeling I may just end up buying the Palmer PLS system pretty soon.

How do risers like these affect the performance of the board. I have size 13 boots and would love to try riding on a normal width board and would be very curious to hear from people who have ridden them. Are you better off utilizing risers, or just getting a wider board?
"these elevators help you transfer more power to your edges for added oomph when turning"...i think that explains it best honestly
Hi! are the binding elevators sold...
Hi! are the binding elevators sold separately?or in a pack of two?Best reggards.
These come in packs of 2.
Not the easiest to install and adjust (screw elevators to board, and bindings to elevators)but they work great.
Are the binding elevators compatible with...
Are the binding elevators compatible with the EST bindings and board such as the Custom X board and triad EST binding and does the hardware to make this work come included
They will work for ICS boards, but not EST Bindings. The plates and hardware needed for all that come with the ICS boards.
Must have if you have big feet!
I have a size 11.5 and with these risers I have no heel/ toe drag at all. They are well worth the money if you don't want a wide board and if you have big feet!

Do the elevators come with hardware like bolts and washers.
