So no ridges on Malavita, Genesis, Lexa or Escapade models due the hammock doing that work and better.
Diode, it's not on their because it's too difficult to get that kind of definition in hand layer up carbon.

As far as backstays being on all Burton boot's, some may not have received them. The only one i can think of is the 2012 Rover and maybe the women's Momento. But if it's not ALL, it's on ALL that you'll likely see because the boots i just mentioned are so limited, basically no one can buy them.

Gotcha, appreciate it. It is great to hear this kind of info from the horse's mouth per say. I will look into all that stuff when purchasing boots and bindings in the future...don't know why Nike does not have backstays but the current ones I have should suffice since I have the Malavitas.

What are some ideas for solutions to cover up the ridges ? I tried tape but it came right off after a few runs...

I am going to just sand the ridges down smooth on mine since I noticed they are starting to damage my brand new burton rampant boots

I know it sounds like a pain, but get new bindings if you have the $$ unless filing them down works for you. I bought the Malavitas, no ridges, problem solved. Just be cautious in the future... but I feel your pain on your Vapens. My DK's are torched! FYI, the Missions have the ridges as well. When and if you do plan to buy different bindings, definitely go in store and check them out to see if they do have ridges. Can't blame Burton, it wouldn't be as bad if Nike did have back stays on their boots but it sucks...

The Cartels don't just discriminate against non-Burton boots. I bought new cartels and Driver X boots this season and I'm already seeing wear through the material on the back of the heel on the boots.

I'm extremely disappointed, this is brand new gear.

Any advice on that, BurtonBindings?

unfortunately it's a boot warranty.
we're looking into making the ridges less aggressive for the 2015 season

Pretty sure it's a binding defect as well, given the subject matter of this thread and what you just said about the ridges. But that's ok, I'll take it through the proper channels.

seems like you can just file it down if it's giving your boots premature wear...
