Burton infidel binding

Sup people, lurked for a while but decided to make an account and post my experience with this new equipment.

My last set were a pair of 13 year old burton cfx carbon fiber jobs which served me really well up until this season. I ride 3x a week since my local spot is 10 mins away.

Well, first run of the season i get off the lift and my toe strap snapped. Jerry rigged it after makng it down with just the ankle strap, and next run broke the toe strap on the other side fixed it again and it broke again and i was like f this. 13 years has been long enough so i went to my local shop here in Greenville Maine and my buddy offered me the infidel binding for 110$.

I just mounted them on my board and right away a few suprises.

1. These are actually lighter than my old "carbon fiber" bindings.

2. They are no joke night and day more comfy than the oldies.

3. The large binding accommodates my size 14 moto boot pretty well.


I cant comment on how they perform yet but ill be riding sometime this weekend and for sure will let all you folks know. Anyhow, if i can figure out how, ill post pics of my set up!

Cheers.

Having a lot of fun with these bindings. I have to tweak the hi-back for more of a forward lean, but they feel really stable and the perfect amount of give.

Very comfy and no problem with my moto boots.

Back out for another run!

Hey man! These look sick! Ive been lurking here for a while too haha. Started boarding last year and I've been out a lot of times. Decided it would be nice to buy my own setup. I bought a Burton Hate with Infidels and Transfer boots hoping to get some buttering and jibbing in!

How are these as far as freedom to move goes from your experience?

There pretty sweet. Super cheap too. They blow my old carbon fiber ones away. The toe ladders slip but nothing serious. As far as movement, i love being able to move my feet and lags around quite a lot. I mostly hit trail jumps and cruise fast, and the movement doesnt bother me at all, if anything it lets me get my body into a comfortable position while riding.
