Hey, how's it going? My name is Matt. We're here at ski 'N see, in Sandy, Utah. We're going to talk today, about some of Burton's new 2008 bindings. Burton has always been a big innovator in bindings. A couple of the big things that Burton does, is they use a nylon base plate, so it's kind of a braided nylon base plate, which basically takes away the vibrations, because there's nothing worse when you're snowboarding, than getting that chatter that you get, if you don't have a good base plate on your binding, so again, that's a big one. Some of the other things, this speed entry system they've got on their P1 binding, you just undo that, stick it in there, pull yourself tight, and you're in like Flynn. A couple of other guys, Burton's got bindings that basically work for everybody, from your basic beginner, to a true expert. You can always feel comfortable in a freestyle binding. They've got Burton Mission, more of a big mountain type binding, good for some bigger lines, it's going to be a little stiffer here and there. Burton Cartel binding, you can see this one looks a little bit different on that highback, because what that is, is that's actually an articulated highback. What that's for, is when you're riding, your inside pressure is going here, because that's the way that you use your direction changes, on snowboarding, so the highback switches direction with you, so to get that articulated highback again, is a real good feature. The other big thing that Burton did this year, is they came out with what they call the Channel. Now, the Channel works with Burton EST bindings, and what that is, is there's two binding mounting spots, on the binding. On the boards, instead of having the traditional pattern that Burton uses, a whole pattern, they've got a single channel on the board. What that does, is it gives you infinite stance options, so you want a freestyle ride and have a big stance, you can do that. A little steeper lines, you can tuck your legs in a little closer. It gives you a lot of freedom, as far as moving your bindings in and out. That's the biggest innovation probably of 2008, with Burton bindings, so if you have anymore questions about that, check out burton.com, is a great one, and also check out utahskis.com, and if you're looking at picking anything up, or for anymore information.
