Its a pity I love them cause they really are fragile pieces of shit.
You might want to try lubing them. Burton uses very weak springs in the ratchets. I'm using silicone spray, works really well (it is a good lube for plastic/metal, gives a bit of water resistance and works well in the cold). If you buy some, make sure it's plastic and rubber safe (mine is intended for automotive use).

Silicone spray can prevent ice buildup as well, if you use it every few days.

Default Burton Diode Bindings- Busted

I was just think the other day to spray the foam with DuPont ice repellant. If I can't find it here in canada, I was thinking the nikwax spray on stuff should work the same?

Call burton and ask them for some prophecy foot pads, they're lighter and will not collect ice.

For the highback, I ripped off the first layer of rubber ..... The black piece. It was starting to come off and I had got another highback from burton because of it. However once I thought about it I decided to just rip the first layer off leaving just the thin orange layer.

It didn't solve the problem 100% but it did help. Also, when ice does build up use the ratchet to scrape it off. Works great.

I also ordered extra ratchets from burton and just carry one with me in case I break one scraping ice, which is very unlikely.

I use my ratchet to scrape the ice off too, its the only available tool I have at the time to get the shit off but my ratchet and footbeds now look like this because of it




I would love a set of prophecy pads but I already feel sorry for the shop I bought mine from. I bought them while in the states and I live in Australia yet they have sent me out 2 replacement highbacks already, never asked me to pay shipping which is very good of them.

Im thinking of ripping off the top layer on my footbeds, that should leave a smooth surface and stop the ice problems.

Will Burton customer service not help you out because your out of country?

They've sent me all of my replacement parts for free, and I bought mine at my local resort gear shop.

I havent asked although burton Australia did send me a set of 4 hole discs for my old customs for free.
Ive always just emailed the shop I bought them from with my problems and they send it out. I figured they would have burton Australia do it but thats not how it works ? Confused lol

Burton's Customer service is the shit..... call them up... I'll bet you they send you the foot beds and what ever else you need.

Ive gotten foot beds, buckles, one high back, and two new frames. Oh Ya, and two new discs that allow lateral movement vs up and down movement (so the RE:Flex works correctly) all free of charge.
