Default 2015 Burton Genesis, Cartel, or Malavita's? Proto HDX

Just got a 2015 NS Proto HDX and wanted to pair it with something better than my old, beat 2011 Ride EX's. I have narrowed it down to these.

I like Canted and saw that the 2015 Genesis now have the Autocant. Can anyone confirm this?

Price is not an issue. I mainly will be riding all mountain and park. I have nitro boots size 12.

I have searched quite a bit about these bindings and didn't find much info on the newer models.

It's confirmed I bought the 2015 genesis from a burton sample sale end of last season and it does have the autocant foot bed.

You may or may not feel a difference between the 3, I only felt a slight difference between the Genesis and the Cartels and Vitas. The Genesis was a bit softer but just as good responsiveness. I can say that the straps are a bit more comfortable compared to the Vitas and Cartels.

I didn't measure them but I didn't feel any real difference in weight.

I have a pair of 12 'Vitas on my retired '12 CT.

My new '14 HD got a pair of '14 'Vitas to with.

I like this combo.

All mountain, a tiny bit of park.

Why only Burton for your options? There are a bunch of bindings, from a bunch of brands, that would pair nicely with a Proto HDX.

I have heard good things about them and had them recommended by a few people.

The Vitas seem to be the most talked about bindings on this site from what little I have read or maybe that's just the threads about the Proto HD specifically.

I am open to other brands as well. I am fairly limited to whatever backcountry.com for certain reasons. I know union is popular but I want to keep the canted basses (do they have them?? The local shop said union doesn't make any with the canted bases).

I have seen you mention the Ride 390 bosses which look interesting. I actually have the original 390 bindings on the original Ride crush board in my storage. I loved those bindings. What bindings would you suggest I look at to pair with the Proto HDX and why would you chose them over the Burton's?

AKA you or someone you know works for backcountry haha. But do you mean Rome 390 bosses? They are a super great binding, take a bit to get the fit perfect but that's one of the huge bonuses of Romes, they are one on the most adjustable bindings on the market, you can't go wrong with them IMO.

Yeah, I love my Rome 390 Boss bindings. They pair up excellently with the Proto. They're a great middle of the road, all mountain binding. They also have canting, and cushy straps. And, as mentioned by Lab, they're super adjustable. As for Union, I believe they are releasing a binding or two with some canting in them this season as well.
