Burton Escapade Women’s Snowboard Binding – 2018

MSRP: $399.99

The Burton Escapade is a top of the line Burton bindings with years of development, made for the woman charging all season long.

As you can expect from any top of the line Burton product, they’ve done their homework in creating a binding from the ground up with the rider in mind. This medium-stiff flexing binding is comfortable and responsive. Decked out with the most evolved straps, buckles, and highbacks, you’ll hardly feel the bindings securing your feet. This is not a men’s binding in a smaller size and different color. It’s made for the woman who appreciates aggressive carving or laid back powder days.

Starting with the highback, Burton’s developed the hammock system, a mesh layer in between your boot and the traditional highback. This provides more spring when you’re initiating heel-side slashes and shock absorption, so you can slam on the breaks with reduced chatter. They’ve taken this hammock idea and expanded it to the heel strap as well.

The Burton Escapade gives life to a malleable form-fitting fastener, built on the foundation of a stronghold and custom fit. When the weather takes a turn, buckles and ladders often fail. Burton’s taken a new approach, adding teeth to both sides of their ladders and a double take buckle pulling from both sets. This will make strapping in quicker and easier, three or four pulls on the buckle and you’re ready for a full day on hill.

The final stand out component is the toecap. A flexible material that wraps around your boot like a rubber band, it boats a strong yet flexible fit resulting in killer edge control.

Available in two mounting styles, the channel system, and traditional four hole, the Escapade will elevate any board on the market. Small details like the hinge on your heel strap, which prevent you from stepping on your strap when first getting seated, are a true testament to the R&D that goes into these bindings.

The Escapade is made for an intermediate to advanced rider looking for a stiffer, responsive binding that they can depend on for all the mountain features calling their name.
