Setting the freestyle standard.

Setting the bar in freestyle performance and all-day comfort, the Burton Malavita EST Snowboard Binding is a go-to choice for Burton's team riders. Top-shelf tech, a versatile flex, and a supremely comfortable fit make for a binding that slays everything from super pipes and big jumps to urban rails and powdery pillow lines.

A responsive baseplate provides the power and precision needed to carve icy pipe walls, launch kickers, and blast pow turns. The medium-flexing Canted Living Hinge highback is tweakable for styling out grabs and jibs, but still supportive enough to handle the biggest hits in the jump line. Heel Hammock lets you run your straps a little looser while still maintaining a responsive connection, meaning you get fast edge-to-edge transitions without squeezing the feeling out of your foot. Dual-density EVA in the SensoryCant footbed allows your boot to settle into a natural position that aligns your joints naturally, no matter the stance width or angles, to reduce fatigue and improve control, and it's supplemented with B3 Gel to absorb shock from harsh landings and minimize vibrations for a smoother ride.

Only available on this EST version of this binding, The Hinge activates medial and lateral flex for reduced fatigue and snappier ollies. The Hammockstrap ankle strap has a nylon strip running down the center that gives you a direct connection to your board at all times, meaning your board instantly responds to your every command. Plus, the asymmetric shape is reversible to allow you to choose between power or mobility. At the front, the Supergrip Capstrap locks down your boot securely without creating pressure points, so you'll never have to sweat about it slipping off during a run. Double Take buckles have teeth on both sides to make clicking in faster, smoother, and more secure.

Amazing all mountain binding!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you're looking for an all mountain binding from Burton look no further! The Malavita offers great support with the wing back system by slightly wraping around your calf.. The Hammock system adds comfort on those hard heel turns by keeping your calf off from the hi-back itself, and burton's toecap will keep you feeling snug in all the right places so you can. The binding is a medium flex so it can handle anything from the park to deep pow turns.

Your Next Go-To

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Snagged a pair of burton custom bindings and while they performed consistently, I was always concerned about the area where the binding connects to the board as it seemed susceptible to break at the point. After a few years, that's exactly where the binding broke. the Malavista's are not only a lighter binding, but they've strengthened the area where the binding attaches to the board. Great bindings for a great ride.

This binding is an impressive combination between flex and weight. The Malavita has all the dressings of the upper level bindings with a little more flexibility for the every day run.

nothing but the best

You heard it right - the Burton Malavita continues to dominate the top freestyle binding year after year. With a medium flex it's perfect for hitting rails, has plenty of support for sending the jumpline, and tackles the rest of the mountain when you aren't ripping through the park. The "Winged" highback is awesome and wraps around your calf for extra control and support, but the regular highback gives a traditional binding feel. Packed with Burton's notorious hammock straps for comfort and "flex slider" for ease of strapping in, it can't be beat. This is one of my favorites in the Burton line.
