The Burton Genesis EST snowboard binding has a few upgrades which allows it to be compatible with snowboards that have the Channel / EST binding system. Compared to the regular Burton Genesis, the EST will provide you with more feel under foot, improved ollie power and better strength. Although this binding isn’t canted, for a few dollars more you can get a canted footbed. Over the last two years this Burton binding has stayed relatively the same. The ride is still comfortable and responsive, but it’s now easier to get into and out of the binding. The Burton Genesis EST has also maintained its supportive and secure fit. However its more focussed on board feel than shock absorption. We would recommend buying the larger canted footbed.
- Very adjustable, strong and durable.
- Responsive and feels easy on the feet.
- Less shock absorption than the Genesis.
