I would agree with X-Base as the purpose of that binding was to be light. The Diode has the same frame as the Malavita if I'm not mistaken. So the only other part is the Highback and with it being full carbon I dont think sub 200lbs will have an issue.

Cartels are softer than ever. Straight from a Burton rep. He didnt know why they dont say so on the site, neither do I.

Aaaand I didnt read far enough. If there are enough cases of snapped highbacks on Diodes (I personally havent dealt with any) then I say Malavitas.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
