FAQ about Step On;

Will Step On bindings release if you fall (like skiing?)
NO. Step On bindings are just like regular bindings. Your boot will only come out of the bindings when the release lever is pulled and secure. 

Will ice / snow build up prevent you from stepping on?
NO. But, just like regular bindings, you need to remove snow and ice from the baseplate before putting your foot down. 

Are Step On bindings compatible with non-Burton boards?
YES. They are compatible with all standard hole patterns and the channel.

Is Step On a system that can be attached to any boot?
NO. Step On is a full system that requires compatible boots and bindings.

"I just don't trust Step On, they seem unsafe."
Step Ons three connection points - two by the toe and one by the heel, deliver unmatched security. The system goes through the same rigorous testing as the rest of Burton's bindings (and meets all legal safety standards). 

"They didn't work well in the 90's... why would they work well now?"
Just like ALL technology, Step On tech has drastically improved in the last 30 years. These aren't your parent's bindings any more...

"Why are they SO expensive, lower the price and I'll be interested."
The Step On system's price is in line with mid to high-end boots and bindings, however is slightly more expensive due to the technology involved. Keep in mind, you are getting boots AND bindings with one purchase.

"Do they still make the clicking sound?"
2.0 Toe hooks reduce the clicking noise and make it easier to get in and out. 

"These are for beginners, no 'real' snowboarder would ever use them."
Step On is used, tested and performs in all terrain. Yes, the nature of the system is great for beginners, however the application is great for ANY snowboarder. Some MSC staff members use Step On and love them in all terrain! Carving, pow, jumps, you name it.

"I heard people are getting stuck in the bindings... I'm not interested."
Burton has received very few reports of people getting stuck in the bindings (we haven't heard any at MSC). Burton believes if someone gets stuck it is user error. The pant clip is on every pair of bindings and should be used as instructed. 

Can I try before I buy?
MSC doesn't stock Step On demos, however Burton has released a rental Step On fleet for 2022 which will be available to rent from MSC come winter '22.
