Burton Malavita 2017
The Burton Malavita is a super charged freestyle binding with the tech to boot. It is a favourite with rippers like Danny Davis, Jeremy Jones and Mark McMorris who are constantly pushing the limits of their riding. A little softer than the Cartel it falls in the Medium stiffness category so its still an all mountain binding but it helps out in the freestyle department a bit more.The zero forward lean hi-back helps with that freestyle feel while the heel hammock locks you in and lets you ride your straps a bit looser so you don't cut your circulation off. With the new asym hammock strap and Super Grip Cap-strap for a more responsive and comfortable ride.
Flex - Medium 6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Base Plate: Single-component baseplate construction using 30% short glass and nylon give that bit of freestyle forgiveness your after.
High Back: Canted Living Hinge, this wipes out extra hardware for a lighter binding. The Heel Hammock locks and cradles your heel to lock you in place without having to crank your ankle strap.
Buckles: Double take buckles grab the helical tongue ridges to create a cranking system that is not only easier to do up but also faster, smoother and more durable.
Straps: Asymmetrical hammock heel straps with flex slider allow easy entry and exit from your bindings. The 3D curved shape allows a more custom fit over the boot. New Super Grip cap-straps lock your toe in and keep your boot back in the heel cup.
Cushioning: You wouldn't make a freestyle binding without a cantered EVA boot bed these days. It puts your foot into a more natural position, especially if you like to rock your stance super wide. Added B3 Gel gives extra impact protection for those heavy landings.
