Description: Burton Joystick Wide Snowboard

Burton's Joystick Wide Snowboard is a technical dream for intermediate to advanced riders. It includes the Channel binding system for extra control and flexibility. The V-Rocker allows for extra float and less hangups, the Frostbite edges are great for icy conditions, and the Pro-Tip nose and tail reduce swing weight for superior spin ability. Burton's Joystick is fast, flexible, and fun for that snowboarder looking for a technically advanced ride.

  • Gondola Package
  • The Channel
  • ROCKER: V-Rocker
  • SHAPE: Twin-Like
  • FLEX: Directional
  • CORE: Super Fly II with Dualzone EGD

Frederick J O: Hey man,
It is designed for the EST, however Burton makes an adapter for regular Burton bindings that will let you use them on the new EST boards. Personally I recommend EST as having your feet directly on the boards surface really improves the feel and feedback from the board, but regular bindings will work if you get the adapters. I think they're about $30-$40 or so, and they replace the normal binding plate with all the holes in it that you bolt to the board.
One other thing, I believe they don't have as much adjustment as EST bindings.
Hope this helps!

Roy MStaff: Yes and no.
The EST would be the ideal set up for the Burton Joystick Wide snowboard. However all the 2014 and most of the 2013 Burton bindings will have 3D, 4x4 and channel compatibility.

Blake A: No, any bindings that are channel based will work. You can also get a channel base that will adapt many bindings. For example I have flow bindings with a channel disc on this board. Dec 2, 2013

John M: I have the 2012 model and it will only accept the EST; however, if you really know about the EST, I think you will like it. It adds a lot of flexibility to the board Dec 6, 2013

Maxwell F: No, as long as you have the right center disk. If you don't have burton bindings you will most likely have to order that disk from your bindings company Dec 2, 2013

Tiana C: I don't know if this is to late of an answer for you, but I got my bindings before my board. I have normal Burton mission bindings and they work just fine on my joystick. I would rather have EST's because my normal bindings screws do loosen much quicker, but you are not limited to ESTs if you already have another pair. Jan 22, 2014
