Usually after they've completed testing and development. Then inventory has to be manufactured and shipped if made outside of the U.S. prior to distribution to retailers. If I were to hazard a guess...hmmm, I would definitely say some time before the season starts.
If you recently picked up the bindings and haven't used them, try exchanging/returning it to the store. Not to be a total douche, why would you not check the compatibility of the board/bindings prior to buying?
no i havent bought any bindings. i just bought the board since i loved the graphics, reviews and the $200 bucks i saved on it. i new that the triads werent est's, so im just hoping that next yrs models will have that set up. if not then ill just settle for 09's
i believe that you can ride a standard burton binding on an EST board, but you can't ride an EST binding on a standard 3-hole board. Email burton to double-check this, and ask them for a new baseplate to fit the EST
