    Comments about Burton Malavita Snowboard Bindings 2014:

    Overall, I found this binding to be very responsive and extremely comfortable. Buckles are smooth and don't stick. The canted footbeds are really nice. Playful enough on spring park days and aggressive enough on hard charging pow days.

      Comments about Burton Malavita Snowboard Bindings 2014:

      After riding Cartels for several years I wanted to try something slightly softer that still was jam packed with features. I grabbed some Malavita's after speaking with the store associate who also rides them. He told me they were a hair softer (a 6/10 rather than 7/10) but still featured canted footbeds and a great ankle strap. One feature that was super noticeable and not on the cartel was the Heel Hammock. It's main purpose is to lock you into the binding. It did that!
      Overall, the Malavita did ride more forgiving than the Cartel but seemed to be just as responsive. It allowed me to let off the gas just a little bit but was still extremely supportive and responsive when I needed it to be.

      Awesome Bindings

      Comments about Burton Malavita Snowboard Bindings 2014:

      When I was looking for a pair of bindings to pick out I wanted something that I could use for the whole mountain. The Malavita was perfect for that, stiff enough to give me the control when I needed it and damp enough to give a surfy feel in the powder. The buckle's are better than ever, a great upgrade from my old Burton Cartels buckle that would slip a lot - these didn't give out once. Lock these into Burton Channel boards for a great, natural barefoot feel.

              Comments about Burton Malavita Snowboard Bindings 2014:

              Great great bindings. Super responsive heel to toe thanks to the grip on the heel cup and high back. Also, because of the reflex plate you can feel everything under your feet in a good way. My only drawback, which is not burtons fault at all, my 32 boots fit tight on the side. As compared to my burton boots which fit like a glove.

              Overall, great binding for soft and mid-soft decks. Responsive and playful binding. But If you want to charge hard and respond quick for a mid-stiff or stiff deck, go for the tried and true cartel. That is if you're not on a huge budget.
