Default How the..?

Hello!

First of all, I'm new to this forum so let me tell my you abit about myself.
I am a all mountain freestyle park style type of snowboarder, rockin an rome agent 157 with burton malativa's size L with burton hail boots size 11.

But now.. Look what happend today on my 4th day of my wintersport in the Alpes..

Anyone else have experience with actually any binding breaking?
I'm kinda shocked this could happen
Next question is.. trust issues.. I loved my bindings, so smooth even riding for 7-8 hours no problem..

Well that's not suppose to happen, especially to bindings like the Malavitas. It should be pretty simple to warranty though and they'll send you a new baseplate. If you really enjoyed the bindings other than this bit, I'd just warranty them and ride em like nothing ever happened. If it breaks again, then you probably want to think about going with another company. I'm sure stuff like this doesn't happen very often though.

Wow! Didn't know the malavita's base plate was plastic. Is this the case for all Burton bindings?

Yeah an American made binding wouldnt have done that for sure.... Jackass. All bindings are made in China.

Burton does not make a single non-polycarb binding. There are more companies using plastic than metal. Binding plastics are nearly all polycarb usually with either fiberglass or carbon blended into them.

That is a solid warranty claim. Get 'em replaced.
