Channel disks!

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Hey Burton ICS board riders, current and future. Burton has, thankfully, changed their disc design this year to make ALL of their bindings ICS compatible. Isn’t that great news?!? No more buying just EST bindings or trying to find converter plates. Keep in mind though, that the strength and level of the binding should match or come very close to that of the board. So don’t cheapen out on the bindings just because they fit the channel. Buy it right the first time and you’ll be happier longer.

Here’s what Burton has to say about the benefits of the Channel. “Focusing power through a central connection that evenly distributes energy for added rebound and snap, it also lets you easily micro-adjust your stance width and angles.”

And for you Flow binding lovers, they also make a channel disk compatible for the Burton Channel. It’s definitely an online product, search around the web before driving anywhere. Thanks Burton for making your products even more consumer and retailer friendly!

Toe Cap Straps bleh

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

Toe cap bindings, you either love ’em, hate em’ or are pretty indifferent about ’em. I think that covers it all. Burton. The pioneer of all pioneers. Or so they like to think. I will say that Burton was pretty innovative with their toe cap technology. I mean, who else could have thought of putting a strap over the front of your boot instead of on top. Talk about minimizing pressure. With Burton being at the forefront of binding tech here’s a quick look at a few of the models we carry. We’ll start at the base. The Freestyle binding, great product at a great price. It’s your entry level when it comes to Burton, which they state as the next level. Can’t decide if you wanna do park riding or free-riding? Then strap into the Custom. This one is gonna be a bit more responsive than the Freestyle and prepped to go all over the mountain. The Mission. Head into the park to throw some 1260’s down on this binding with the padding to make sure your feet don’t fall off when you stomp the landing. Moving onto the Cartel, this is your Custom with a higher bankroll. It’s lightweight, super strong, and provides some nice cushioning and gel to absorb all the force you throw down on the hill. Burton can say that they are the leaders in snowboard technology, but don’t forget that technology is wasted on those who don’t know how to use it. So make sure you strap into a binding that fits you, your riding level, and your riding style. You’ll be happy, we’ll be happy, and Burton will be happy.
