great review, but maybe turn down the mad synth organist??

The Dingo says:

These are one of my favorite bindings out there. They are super reliable and comfy like you said. I do have the last years toe strap that totally sucks dick. I just switched to the union strata for something on the softer side though. Great binding but if I were the consumer, I’d wait till later in the season to grab a pair when they are cheaper because 320$ for a pair is quite steep.

I always heard the free thinker was stiffer than the custom?

jason says:

did you find the ratchets difficult to engage even when not frozen? i have last year’s model and i think the ladders/ratchet are the same. It’s a pain trying to get the ladder fed in to where the ratchet engages. Its like it seems to slid under the ratchet or something where you can’t tighten it, gotta pull out and try again. Glad to see they fixed that horrible toe strap though – might see if i can snag a 2019 replacement for my 2018.

I purchased 2019 malvita for a 2019 hot knife and genesis for my 2019 mind expander, I like both but I love the malavitas. The are firm enough when ur aggressive but soft enough for park, I love the forward lean adjust no matter how much u adjust it still hits the heel cup, the genisis being similar to the infidel and new custom when u hit 4 or 5 forward lean it actually misses the heal cup, u can slide the high back back to make it hit, but can’t get as much lean cus if u go more it will miss again, this also stops u from adjusting ur high back parallel to ur edge cus u have to slide both sides back all the way. The malvita doesn’t have the issue with the spinny adjuster it always hits you can get more lean, and parallel ur high back to ur edge, so out of all the burton bindings, I’d go malvita over even the higher end genesis or genesis x

Dan Hollingsworth says:

Hey Kevin, would you say that ‘grabby’ high back results in the rider not having to tighten the ankle strap as much?

Allan Elliott says:

When’s the Union binding review coming?

Andrew Dawson says:

Burton bindings have a lot more adjustability than you describe. The toe strap has two positions within the tray, one forward and one back (and tool-free when the binding is unattached). The footbed extends forward to accommodate boot length. High backs can be rotated significantly, and obviously forward lean can be adjusted. The ankle straps are also asymmetrical so they can be flipped between right and left bindings for an alternative fit.

Is it possible to upgrade the toe strap ?

Rob Gams says:

How does it compare to the reflex cartel in terms of stiffness, response, comfort, etc. ? Thanks.
