Burton Genesis... 2013 or 2014??
 
Hey all i am pretty excited about the 2013 Genesis but then i read some blogs about the 2014 being redesigned.

from lookin at the 2014 Burton hard goods i just notice they added the insta click and new strap (reduce material).


Does any experts know if its worth holding out for next years Genesis?
i just got my Burton Antler and want to match it with EST badly... otherwise i will have to use my Rome Targas till next year :huh:

If I had to pay full price at this point in the season I'd likely wait. But there's a lot of end of season sales happening which makes it a harder decision; if I saw this year's bindings on sale at a decent discount I'd probably grab them.

yes totally wont be full price... i just got some bad news burton sold out of of the mediums for me :(

a buddy said he was gonna hook me up with half off. thats why I posted.
They only have malavita in my size.

there's a couple cdn online stores with genesis in medium at 20% off, i'd think that there would be some online in the us or on ebay, or still in inventory at shops

Demo'd this season Genesis. The rep said the Genesis will be totally redesigned for next year, he suggested to hold out until next year.

This seasons Genesis are really great bindings, I like it over my 09 Triad, or this seasons Cartels. If my riding season was really long; say into June, I'd get the Genesis now. But if it's gonna end in March, I'd hold out. Maybe you can score a demo'd set at a shop or Burton distributor. Hope that helps ya out:)

Thanks! my season ends pretty much mid march.. so basicaly i got 3 days of riding then i have to pack up the gear. if i can ride till JUNE i will pay full price with the biggest smile .

C60's on the antler will be fine, I've got them on my Sherlock. The whole binding/board stiffness matching is overrated, if you like a stiff binding you'll be fine, presumably you like a stiff binding as you own the c60's.

When should 2014 burton products typically become available to order online at dogfunk/evo etc?
