Flux TT-JSLV Bindings
While the TT-JSLV binding is tagged up with out-of-this-world graphics, it is also decked out with more tangibly rad features, like an Alpha high back for standard response, and convenient tool-less straps. Built to withstand even the most intense skate-influenced riding, this binding can handle everything from hefty drops to technical jibbing thanks to 3D cushion base-plates, which help to maintain a pressure-free atmosphere.
Technine Elements Pro Bindings
Presenting a freestyle-focus flex with the scrub high-back, the Elements Pro binding will handle business on mega booters, triple-kinks and everywhere in- between. Versitality on the fly is prime with the option to swap out the soft scrub high-back for the Park Destroyer high-back to allow improved response and reinforcement to dominate the rest of the mountain with ease. After long hours of non-stop lapping your feet will be feeling fresh with the full-length baseplate padding and EVA footbed cushions to quiet down the noise till the fat lady sings.

Burton’s Mission binding has been around for a solid ten years, giving riders a binder with a comfort level normally found in high-end models and a mid-range response for handling anything you can throw at it all while still hitting a price point you can’t beat in snowboarding.
