Austin asked: For just hitting groomers riding a 152cm Custom X, would the Genesis, Cartel, or the Diode be my best option? Nov 20, 2013

Matt GStaff: Hi Robert,

That's a pretty tough choice. If you're looking for unmatched response get the Burton Dieode EST Snowboard Bindings. The Dieodes have a very thin footbed for great board feel, but if you want more cushioning underneath your feet get the Burton Cartel EST Snowboard Bindings.

I use my Cartels for everything!

Eric R asked: I am trying to decide between the 2014 Burton Diode EST and the Genesis EST. For either binding, I plan on adding Burton's canted 2.0 footbed for the cant and the additional cushioning. I am an intermediate to advanced rider and I am riding 2014 Burton Landlord 163. I am 5'11 190lbs. If that matters. As far as riding style, I am mostly freeriding and love riding trees and pow when I can find it, but I haven't yet to venture into true backcountry. I would love to try some backcountry boarding some day, but living in Florida, I am not a local to any mountains, so I don't feel comfortable going in the backcountry without a guide. I also don't mind carving up the groomers and occasionally hit some jumps, but I don't do anything huge or advanced tricks.

I am leaning towards the Diode due to the responsiveness, but the tech in the Genesis high back is also very appealing. I like the responsiveness of the Diode, but at the same time, the stiffness is scaring me off a little because every review I read or watch makes a point of how stiff and perhaps unforgiving the Diode is. I am not an expert rider, but I would say that I am on the low end of advanced, although I do get a bit rusty each year because I only get one or two week long trips each year.

What's the upside and downside to stiff bindings like the Diode? What would be the upside of the Genesis over the Diode and which binding would you recommend for this board and my experience level and riding style? Cost is not a factor. I am not a millionaire by any means, but I'm just saying that I'm not going to let $70 more or less, drive my decision on something as important as my bindings. I keep going back and forth between these two by the hour. I just need to make my decision once and for all and move on.

Yours Truly,
Indecisive

Matt GStaff: Hi Eric,

Thank you for your thorough explanation, it has given me proper insight. With all seriousness, thank you.

With all that you've written I'm leaning towards the Burton Genesis EST Snowboard Bindings. Both the Diode and the Genesis have a Hammockstrap, a Lightweight Gettagrip Capstrap, Double Take Buckles, and of course a ShredBED 3.0 Cushioning System that you will remove anyway. The biggest difference, as you know, is the highback and the the baseplate.

I suggest the Burton Genesis ESt Snowboard Bindings because the baseplate and the Zero-Lean Kickback Hammock highback will be a little softer and better fit for your preferred terrain choice.

I was fortunate enough to test the Landlord with the Genesis bindings a few years ago, it maybe one of the best combinations I've ever been on.

Either way you can't go wrong choosing either binding, but I'd go with the Genesis if I was you.

*Extra Note - The Hammockstrap will be the most comfortable ankle strap you ever ride.

A shopper asked: Would these work well in the park and on jumps? Nov 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: Yes the Burton Diode EST Snowboard Bindings would be good in the park and jumps if you like lightweight and really responsive bindings. If you like an uber plush feel that dampening harsh landings AND looks hella' fresh check out the Burton Malavita EST Binding here » http://www.the-house.com/bt1male04rdw14zz-burton-snowboard-bindings.html Nov 5, 2013

A shopper asked: Just bought the Diode EST Bindings size Large. I have always bought Large bindings and the fit was perfect with my 11 boot size. These seem to be a bit too big for my boots, because I can't center them on the board. I have more heel overhang than toe. Should I exchange the Large for a Medium? Mar 25, 2014

A shopper asked: Two (2) Diode questions - I ride a Custom X 164, Ion 10.5 boots and C60 large bindings.

1). Base plates on the C60 larges are too big - Will at Diode mediums fit better?

2). EST vs Reflex - Am I better off on EST's vs Reflex for free riding and big jumps (no boxes/rails)?
