Comfort and control are the best words to describe the 2017 Burton Escapade binding. These girls are light weight and provide superior performance for an all-terrain sister looking for awesome hold. The highbacks are the Kickback Hammock version which equals unrivalled comfort and hold. The body of the binding is not as stiff as you might think, so it is forgiving enough to please you as a progressing rider, and yet strong enough to handle any kind of riding you 10 year veterans can throw at it. The comfort just keeps on coming with these Escapades! The Super Grip Capstrap is maybe the grippiest toe cap out there, and the Hammock Strap ankle strap spreads the binding load all over your foot with a feather touch. Easy in and out comes standard with the Double Take Buckles featuring Insta-Click.
This EST version is designed to pair with a Burton board featuring The Channel mounting system for the ultimate in flex, feel, and adjustability.
Flex Rating: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – This mildly stiff model helps riders make quick, technical maneuvers, even at high speeds. Great for all-mountain carving, powerful freeriding and charging through the terrain park.
EST® – Made of lightweight 30% Short Glass and Nylon Composite, EST® Bindings offer ultimate technology in flex, feel, and adjustability, with the option to customize performance by choosing between various BED cushioning technologies. Get endless stance options, a truer flex from your board, and more cushioning, feel and control than ever before. Compatible exclusively with Burton boards featuring The Channel™.
Women's Specific Podbed™ Cushioning System – Strategically placed EVA padding provides cushioning in common pressure points while a clear topsheet material evenly distributes a rider's weight. An evolved indicator allows for more precise stance adjustment and the glueless design is friendlier on the environment.
Zero-Lean Canted Hi-Back Design – Your legs don't go straight up, and neither should your hi-backs. This ergonomic design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort. Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the Zero Forward Lean design on select hi‑backs. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls.
Zero Forward Lean – Riders who prefer a more playful relaxed feel will love Burton's Zero Forward Lean hi-back design element. You can still crank them forward for the pipe or gnarly carving.
Kickback Hammock – A lighter weight upgrade to the Heel Hammock, this two-piece, heel-hugging hi-back is literally suspension in a hi-back. Dynamic interaction between an internal spring and rubber over-molded hammock results in increased response and reduced vibration while your heel is cradled in complete suspension.
MicroFLAD™ – Burton's tool-free forward lean adjustment system.
Hammockstrap™ – Reactstrap roots in a stitchless construction for ultra-response with minimal materials. The addition of a nylon cross spine equals a more direct connection with the board.
Flex Slider – Makes the ankle straps move out of the way so you can step into the binding without obstruction. Burton's Flex Slider has a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Supergrip Capstrap™ – 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.
Double Take Buckles w/ 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.
Women's Specific True Fit™ – Enjoy a more harmonious connection with Burton’s True Fit™ women’s boards, boots, and bindings. True Fit means that every element of your setup—from boot liners to lace guides, baseplate to strap designs, board shapes to flex profiles— are designed and engineered for the way women ride. Because when it fits right, it rides better.
