The Burton Men's Malavita EST Snowboard Bindings are 100% freestyle focused. The result of all the tech is a binding that flexes dynamically around your leg for more powerful ollies, wraps response around your heels, and cushions your foot in a more relaxed position.
A softer (yet no less hard charging) alternative to the Cartel
, the Malavita EST features the top three technologies: The Hinge, an exclusive technology that flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies. Heel Hammock, a reinforced rubbery material wraps response around the heel of the boot so you can run your straps a little looser and still get lightning fast response out of turns with your heel cradled in complete suspension. AutoCANT SensoryBED, the 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.
As if that triple threat weren't enough the canted hi-back design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort while living hinge eliminates hardware and weight for easy adjustments. Zero Forward Lean Hi-Back allows for a more playful and relaxed feel while still allowing you to crank them forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls and can easily be adjusted with DialFLAD. Strap in with the Asym React strap allows you to throw it one way for power and the other for mobility, depending on what you choose, or just leave it as is and go and buckle them in knowing you have buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power.
The Malavita brings soft-flexing freestyle with a mean demeanor.
