So Im thinking about tryin burton bindings

Im thinking about buying a pair of burton mission bindings. I got to try a pair for one run last season and LOVED the way the held my feet, but dont know how well they hold up over time. Im looking to replace my Flows with the missions for pow days [because flows suck hard core in pow]. Does anyone out there have them and know if this is the best binding for the pow?

Thanks

i dunno if its just me or what but imo burton bindings are garbage. my current i beliebve 06 or 07 customs have broke twice. my friends brand new catels last year cracked right in half and my other friends missions broke multiple times.

I have the 07 mission and I like them but would recommend upgrading to something higher up in Burton's line. The mission's have fairly cheap ratchets and tend to skip when I really crank them down. Also not the lightest binding, but certainly not a tank either.

FWIW I rode the same pair of burton freestyle bindings for 8 years with no issues. Lost some nuts/bolts and rode them held together with ticket wickets for about two seasons.

must be just you, I had cartels for almost 5 years, snapped a ratchet, but other than that, no problems at all. Till they got stolen.

I'd also upgrade to Cartels, Missions are a poor attempt at making Customs better. Not worth the money.

If not Cartels, then Ride SPi's would be super nasty for some deep riding response.

Or I would like to know if anyone has any experience with the NRc's from ride, its an interesting idea if it works and the binding is solid.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

eh

burton missions were my first real snowboard bindings and i loved them for the first seasons that i had them but they just arent doing their thing anymore so i just changed to ride delta mvmnt's and they are a lot better, a little heavier but more solid and cheaper i got an 08 pair for 40% off
