The Malavita is Burton's flagship freestyle binding. It perfectly blends state of the art design and construction with a more playful overall ride. This makes it the perfect choice for riders who are looking to take their park riding skills to the whole mountain, or for all terrain riders who want a progressive binding that prioritises riding comfort.
Baseplate: Single Component 30% Short Glass Nylon Re:Flex
Re:Flex offers more flex, feel and cushioning than traditional disc bindings, in a package which is universally compatible with all current mounting systems. The minimised cored baseplate with Living Hinge disc not only reduces the weight and footprint of the binding, but also bends freely for a more natural feel that unlocks the boards true flex. The single component baseplate construction features one material throughout creating a consistent response and feel for all terrain domination. The 30% short glass nylon composite is more responsive than polycarbonate baseplates yet still playful.
Highback: Single Component Canted Living Hinge Zero Lean with DialFLAD.
The Canted Living Hinge technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently. Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the Zero Forward Lean. As always, you can still choose to crank them forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls. The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, the DialFLAD systems give you twice the options of the traditional FLAD.
This reinforced rubbery material wraps response around the heel of any boot. Run your straps a little looser and still get lightning fast response out of turns with your heel cradled in complete suspension.
Ankle Straps: Asym Hammockstrap with Flex Slider
Featuring the same minimal and seamlessly comfortable design as the Hammockstrap, this asymmetrical pad and spine shape wraps the boot in response. Flip the straps for increased freedom, or run stock for power and support.
Toe Straps: Supergrip Cap Strap
This minimalist design merges two materials into one technologically advanced toe strap. A firmer material in the spine provides a supportive and lightweight skeleton, while a softer over-molded material improves boot wrap and comfort.
Buckles: Double Take featuring Insta-Click
Be the first to drop in with the rapid ratcheting of Burton's Double Take Buckles. Helical teeth and "Insta-Click" engagement combine for increased torque per crank, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use.
Dampening: Re:Flex AutoCANT Full BED Cushioning with B3 Gel
FullBED cushioning offers full underfoot cushioning that maximizes comfort while minimizing fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware. 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. The Under-Baseplate Dampening Pad eats up vibrations and impacts so your body doesn't have to. B3 Gel is the same cushioning found in Burton's high-end boots for ultimate dampening that's formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps
