I busted up one of my Hibacks today.
It got caught under the chair when I was loading.
It's weird that the middle piece just broke out. I managed to ride the rest of the day with a less-stiff rear leg.
I've heard about this happening, but it could never happen to me...:blink:
I sent an email to Burton, hoping for a cheap replacement...
Anyone have great ideas or similar experience?
See pics for reference...

happens all the time if you dont fold it down. I unstrap and kick mine down as a habbit.
I always did on my old ones, but these have clips that keep the highback up.
I'm hoping I can get them on the cheap thru Burton

Just got an email reply from Burton and I gave them a call.
My bindings are super old ~ 2006 so they don't have parts, but they are sending me a Freestyle Hiback free of charge, which will be compatible.
That's pretty amazing customer service!
