Burton Reflex is not a binding it is a feature of several bindings in their line.

What board are these going in? I would look at the Malavitas or Cartels (i have both) for your type of riding. I prefer Burton to Union after having owned Forces.

Which of the burtons would you choose for 50/50 freestyle/allmountain..

Read up on the forces.. There are many threads up on these.. to be honest it scared me a little against the burtons aswell..

Definitely the Malavitas. Asym Strap, Reflex, good torsional flex but still responsive highback, heel hammock, buttery smooth burton buckles and ratchets, good colorways, etc. You cant go wrong with them

Guess it ill be the normal malavita's for my proto then.. THX


If you read up on the cartel/Malavita's there doesn't seem to be much difference other than the cartel is a tiny bit stiffer..

Theres also the restricted versions however a friend of mine didn't like them.. said they were to lose but i didn't try them myself..

If he though restricted Cartels were too loose he was doing something wrong. Cartels are less a do everything binding as in the past and more a do everything outside the park binding now.

Malavita's. No wings, cause asym means you can't flip them to the inside where they actually make a noticeable difference.

Solid bindings.

Don't let hate fool you. Burton makes quality bindings and now that they're moving towards these asym straps and no stock forward lean, are actually rideable.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
