Burton EST bindings will only work with Burton ICS channel boards. Non EST Burton bindings will fit any current board on the market today.
Only have great things to say about the EST system. It is solid and can change the position of my boots in about a minute. But there is one problem, you can only use it with Burton Boards. Smart Marketing by Burton but it sucks I would have to buy different bindings if I won a sierra board. If you have or are planning to get Burton boards then these are fair priced for a good quality binding. Plus they look good.
I love this binding. It not only looks cool, but feels just the same. The new EST feel really lets you connect with your board for the most board feel ever imaginable. I also love the primo strap and capstrap. The ankle strap gives you really good support but also a nice amount of forgiveness. The capstrap really keeps you'r boot all the way in your binding all day, and the grip makes it stay on you'r toe without slipping. The smooth glide buckles are amazing too. They're easy to get on and off. So overall this binding is definatly 5 stars. I can't find anything wrong with it considering the price
Extremely easy to set up on a channel board. Only had one problem with this binding...... One time the upper binding strap came Unlatched for lack of a better word- thats the only problem I've had. you can set it up just how you want it very easily. The binding does tend to come loose from the board so you will have to tighten it before and after ridding.
These bindings are great, I just took them out the other day for the first time and they are awesome. I have the black bindings, and they look great with any board with a black topsheet. I didn't see it when i ordered them, but there is a white strip on the toe strap. The EST is great and responsive also, just think and you move. I would recommend these for anyone
I love this binding. It's rock solid, and feels like a binding should, like it's not really there. Support when you need it, out of mind when you don't. I wish the binding angle indicator was more accurate, and that these came with the capstraps found on the higher end models. Those are my only complaints. Others then those, thumbs up
I demoed these binding on a Custom board. I loved the EST, easy to place the bindings exactly where I wanted them. I ride some older Drake bindings, and these were much lighter and responsive. I would give them a medium flex. Overall, they made for a nice ride
I have an older model of the burton customs and let me tell you they hold up very well! The bindings have never let me down. Everything stays snug and tight and give you great response and feel. I would def. recommend these to anyone. These bindings also come in many different color options which is awesome for any set-up.
Have these bindings strapped to a 2011 Burton Custom. The build quality for the price can't be beat. The highback adjustment is really easy to do; just flip that silver cover down on the back and push a little plastic tab down. The straps are easy to put on and take off with gloves on, and with the EST you have no problem making small adjustments to angles or stance width throughout the day
This is a good binding to own especially for the price, its a must get because burton ics can get quite pricey. i rode it for a season with combination on a custom flying v and it was a good ride. it can go anywhere but it is soft

Great binding, EST works with Burton Custom board. Like how you can adjust stance, foot position, etc., with very little tools. My first snowboard/binding besides using rentals, works well for me. Toe cap is sometimes hard to position properly when on the mountain
I have had these bindings for a couple of years now, and they still look/ feel like i just put them on my board. I love how fast, and easy it is to strap my boots into them. I recommend these bindings if you want a step up from flimsy cheap bindings
They're definately lookers, but in two weeks of solid riding, they couldnt handel my style. so i got another pair and in about another month i sent a crack through the frame that separated them from the board. However they would be good for beginners cause they were pretty comfy and sof
This is good for someones first bindings but for anyone that has had there first board and bindings for a while and has been riding for a while your better off saving up a little more and getting the cartels i love them they are soft, but responsive these are not that soft. but arent stiff there just made more for begiener not for my type of riding styl
Bindings are great when you use them. Very responsive and allows for true customization. Beware when they break though. Once they break unless you shell out another $170 for a new set be prepared to stick with renting for a few weeks until Burton replaces them.
My bindings broke due to a manufacture defect -- sent it back to Burton to have it replaced. Process will take about 2 - 3 weeks. In the meantime I'm stuck with a channel board that I can't ride because no shop rents est bindings.
