General Description: The X Base EST is a super light yet stiff and responsive binding for anyone wanting to ride the whole mountain. For the Burton team the direction was simple- build the lightest and strongest binding with the absolute best ingredients, worry about what accounting thinks later. They recruited the team, cranked up the lab, and got to work. With hard drives smoking, calculations firing, flex tested, and scales calibrated, the Burton X-Base binding was born. The culmination of every R&D resource at Burton’s disposal, it’s hyper-reactive and incredibly comfortable in the lightest weight binding our technicians can build.
