I rode my Proto HDX / Contact Pros setup last Monday at Stubai Glacier in Austria and it felt great. Def really happy with the contact pros and yea I def feel they can go anywhere. Nice response, nice and light, I really love Unions straps the toe strap is awesome and the heel cup adjustability. Plus Unions lifetime warranty on plastics may be very useful. Only complaint is I wish they'd have used a tougher paint on the ratchets as the white is coming off a tad bit, powder coating them would've been a better choice than whatever paint they used in the ratchets

flipone Thanks for the info bparmz. .definitely leaning towards the malavitas..there is a snow show coming up this week in toronto and there will be burton reprensentatives there. Maybe they can convince me to go for the genesis.

Bparmz..the genesis is $50.00 CAD more than the malavita. How much more technology is put into the genesis than the malavita? Is it worth the extra money?
The kickback hammock on the genesis is the most comfortable high back i have ever used. And this year Burton put a new hammock strap on it as well. i havent tried that out but i'm sure its decent. So, Malavita will be better in the park and still be perfectly fine all around the mountain. The genesis will be better for all around the mountain and still work for the park. I don't think the genesis is as stiff as burton rates it which is 7 on their scale i'm pretty sure. So it comes down to what you want to spend as well as if you want something that is better in the park or all around the mountain.

Just bought an HD also and I'll be putting last year's Genesis on it. But if you're set between those two, I'd go for the Vita's for sure.
Where did you ride the new Contact Pro?
