2013 Early Release Burton X-Base -Well, this sucks.

So, first day out with the new board and bindings. Tearing it up? Nope, nothing but green and blue runs with The Nuggets (beginner skiers). Despite the light duty, check out this expensive piece of crap:



Damn carbon fiber binding back snapped. Snapped on green and blue runs. You have got to be kidding me.

That sucks. Lots of broken diode highbacks last season... That design is just too thin. They need to go back to Co2 or C60 style.
They should take care of you tho...

qft

they'll probably send ya a new highback tho if you are nice.

May want to tell them it failed you charging hard on the steeps. Falling leaf on greens is a dead giveaway to origami by chairlift.

What does that mean? What does not putting the highback down do?

Easiest way to crack a highback: Leave it up and have the board caught between the chair and the ground. These things are not designed for compression loading in that direction...

I rather think it may have happened when getting off a lift. Think a Nugget zinged me with a ski causing me to fall. I fell on the ramp, landing, somehow, on the back binding (closed) and rode the board down the ramp while laying on my side, on top of the binding. Funny as hell and I did get one of those "Daddy, what are you doing?" questions from The Girl. Anyway, I think that is when it happened. We'll see what happens.

so your original story- it failed while riding blues and greens is completely false.

It failed because you don't know how to get off a chairlift. Nice...

i ride meadows every year. i'd be surprised if there's enough snow yet to even get your highback close enough to the lift to break it while getting on.
