Vancouver 12-13 Season
Went up to Cypress this morning. Burton has a demo tent set up with 2014 gear. Tried out a Nug with Genesis bindings and a Hate with Malavitas.
Genesis ankle strap is a new mesh material that looks kinda like the high back. New ratchet design as well. Seems more complicated with ladders on both side of the strap feeding into the ratchet. My left toe ratchet was busted and the strap didn't glide through properly. The other ratchets were fine. Good looking binding.
The new colorways for the Malavitas are ugly IMO. One was dark brown with some monograms on it that look like a women's LV purse. The other pair I saw was beige with red highlights. Other than the colors they look pretty much identical to this years and last.
