Broke my front binding last night.....

Well i' am definitely a noob. I've only been out 6 times but i'm finally starting to get the hang of it. Went night riding last night at my local hill and was feeling pretty good until halfway through the second run coming around a bend i went to tighten up my turn but as I leaned in I noticed my front foot felt, I guess "sloppy". right after this ate shit pretty hard. As I was tumbling down the mountain my front binding broke clean off the board. Ended up sledding down on the board which was kinda fun. thankfully the only injury was a slightly tweaked ankle from the board flopping around that I walked off. Fortunately the guy at the shop had a spare disc so I was back out after resting my leg a bit. Just wondering if anyone has done anything similar. Bindings are Burton Mission on a Burton clash board. Here is a pic of the carnage.

That disc looks like it exploded. Glad you're OK. If it went down like you're describing it I would be contacting Burton and having them send me some new discs.

I've been riding Burton bindings (as have my friends) for many, many years. I've never seen anything like that. It looks like someone went all HULK SMASH on a disc with a mallet!

Is it possible over/under tightening could cause this type of failure? Incorrect bolts?

Wow.

Shit happens. At least it was just the disk and not the baseplate or the inserts.

My .02 cents from working warranty for years. You fell the torque twisted the binding and as you spun around in a circle on your ass the nose/tail dug in and the pressure cracked the disk. Shit happens when you get radical.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

that's friggin ridiculous. Kinda makes me worry because I'm leaving on a trip tomorrow and all I have is one set of cartels. What I do see on your disk is all the insert holes for both 4x4 and 3D that are surely weakening the strength...mine only have the 4x4.

Switch to only 4x4 or 3D disks and you'll have a stronger disk/less chance of that happening again

That sounds like a plan to me thanks for the idea.
