Burton Mission Re:Flex Bindings 2017
[tab title=”Description” active=”true”]
Features of the 2017 Burton Mission Re:Flex Bindings
- Medium flex rating
- Medium / Firm Cushioning
- Single Component Baseplate
One material is used for the baseplate.
- Single Component Hi-Back
The Hi-Back is made from one piece.
- Living Hinge Hi-Back
This means that you can adjust the forward lean, and the rotation of the Hi-Backs separately.
- Zero Forward Lean Hi-Back
This just means that the Hi-Backs have the option of being set to zero, or having no forward lean. No forward lean is good for people who want a more relaxed feeling ride.
- Canted Hi-Back
Designed to fit more ergonomically with your legs.
This is a dial that can be spun to adjust the forward lean on the Hi-Backs.
- Reactstrap with Flex Slider
The ridiculous description “Minimized Superstrap™ Construction 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine Ultra-Responsive Enduro Padding Improved Wrap for Constant Contact with Boot” just means that the strap is made to fit nice and tightly around your boot. The Flex Slider lets the strap fall out of the way, without making the slider weak.
- Gettagrip Capstrap
A capstrap that fits nicely over the toes, which won’t move around.
- Smooth Glide Buckles
- FullBED Cushioning System
- Under-Baseplate Dampening Pad
There is a lifetime warranty on the baseplate, and a one year warranty on the straps and highbacks.
The Missions sit at the spot in Burton’s binding line where the quality and features start to get noticeably better, compared to the Customs below it.
They have much nicer ankle straps and toe caps, which give you a good comfortable hold, that won’t slip around while you are riding.
They were the first pair of bindings that I ever bought, and I had never had any problems with mine. I found that the medium flex was perfect for me, they were stiff enough and still gave good support while riding fast, but you could still butter and press the bindings without being too restricted. I ride my pair of Missions for at least 150 days, and never had a problem with them.
They aren’t super cheap, or super expensive, but I would recommend them for someone who wants a quality medium flex binding, that is going to work well for all sorts of riding.
