Default 2011 ICS boards compatibility

Hi, I heard that Burton is changing their EST system for next year, so their ICS boards and EST bindings will be new technology.

So I'm wondering will the 2010 or older EST bindings fit on the 2011 ICS boards? Or we'll have to get 2011 EST bindings on these new boards?

You can still use your old bindings, you just have to get the new hardware converter. I believe it is going to cost around $5.00.

So will 2011 EST bindings work on the 2010 ICS boards or will that require some kind of converter too?

I found the catalog for the 2011 stuff, they're not doing anything differently. ICS & EST setup will be exactly the same. What sense would it make to come out with a new technology only to change the compatibility of it?

2010 Burton EST & ICS will be compatible w/ 2011. They've made some pretty nifty changes to bindings though. They offer removable foot pads on the bindings that are interchangeable (other pads sold separately).

That was available for their 2010 models as well, EST bindings have always had 2-3 different types of footbeds available.. Standard, Shredbed (Lower Profile), and Cantbed (Canted for Bros with unnecessarily wide stances)

I stand corrected... I just ordered my first set of EST's (2010 model c60) and haven't received them yet, so I wasn't aware of that. What an awesome feature, Burton has really stepped up their game.

The two versions are called M5 (prior to 2011) and M6 (new for 2011). The Channel will still operate the same the M6 version is just a little thicker. The male/female connect is switched on the M6 too (the screw is male and the insert is female) as opposed to the M5, that is when the conversion hardware is needed (it will come free with ever 2011 board). They put a little notch in the area where you put the insert in, this will disallow M5 hardware in a 2011 M6 channel (only the M5 conversion hardware will fit). All EST bindings work with either M5 or M6 hardware.

Do you know if the M6 hardware will work with the 2010 ICS boards? I'm assuming they switched the male/female connectors to help with problems from the current hardware.
