These are used, but could get them for a good price. Size Medium, EST (I e-mailed the seller) not sure when I'll be in Edmonton next but I could check them out if you wanted.

shipping costs will make that deal not worth it at all

i might be wrong, didn't read whole thread but.. if he wants to order bindings from US to Danmark, he will pay big money for shipping

i live in sweden, 2 years ago i ordered shoes from ebay from states, price of shoes was like 110 $, shipping costs + some stupid taxes etc in sweden made price over 200 $ in the end.. and i think it's gonna be same for danmark and all scandic countries

BUT that's what happened to me, just warning you to check how does it work before you decide to order anything from states to europe.. even if seller will pay shipping costs, you still have to pay tax or whatever it is in your country, so buying in UE would be better idea i think

This is what I was told about the Genesis by Burton, I have not ridden them:

The average buyer getting the super high end techy stuff is the guy with lots of money that rides maybe 5 days a year. That guy isnt really pushing his equipment and probably doesnt need something super responsive and stiff. Now, Genesis. A super techy binding that isnt "uber" stiff and "ultra" responsive. So the rich dude can spend his money but get a binding thats a little more appropriate to his ability.

This is kind of like saying that if you dont ride uber stiff bindings you arnt a good rider...

Why cant good riders who dont want uber stiff bindings have tech in less stiff options?

Am I missing something?

BTW..its doesnt take a guy with lots of money to afford $300-$400 bindings lol

most bindings feel like ... bindings. The Genesis, on the other hand, don't feel like any other binding out there. They are next level shit. Can't wait for my pair to arrive

whats up everyone....new to this forum but not new to the sport about 20 years of riding...with that said....last year I bought the Custom X and slapped the EST Diodes on the board, it is by far the stiffest setup I have ever had......been on several sets of cartels, ride, and flows for that matter....it all depends on your riding style and what you like....if you like stiff bindings then buyem....i will say that the Custom X flat gets it on the mountain.....and the combo of the diodes with the X is fast....

As a side note I am 6'2/220 and put 59 days on that board and bindings last year and didnt have a problem with my highbacks.....this doesnt include the days that I pulled the bindings off my X and put them on my fish...they are good bindings and the lightest i have ever had....

Just my 2 cents....

Hey its not what I'm sayin, its what I was told. And their analysis of the market is more or less correct. The seasoned riders I get in here arent dropping near $400 for a binding. If they want something a little softer, like I've been told the Genesis is, there are much cheaper options which means they can afford real food over ramen that month. It does seem that Burton is pushing a softer highback and this being a two piece oddity maybe it does provide all the response you can ask for. I dont know. But I know a lot of people were expecting it to replace the Prophecy and as fas as I've been told it does only in price point, not performance. Does that mean someone who loved the Prophecy wont like the Genesis, I have no idea. I just want to inform those looking at this guy that it might not be what they think.
