Key Features of the Burton Mission Snowboard Bindings:
I took a big break from riding (7 years) and when I came back I threw a newer pair of Customs onto an old Nitro deck. It was doing ok but a coworker suggestion I give the missions a look since he loved his - I was sold the first run I tried his board and when I bought a new deck for the new season I got a pair of Missions for my own deck. Haven't regretted the purchase since, they offer a ton of control with lightweight, durable construction. People like to hate on Burton just because they're one of the biggest players in the game, but they got there by making solid products and the Mission is definitely one of them
I love my Missions. The toe strap completely changed my riding for the better, and they take all of the abuse I can give them. I ride some in the park, some on trails, and some in the trees and in every condition I've ridden in, I've loved the
I shred these occasionally, they're sick for jumps but not the best jor jibs, they're a little too responsive and the toe caps make the response even better, making it worse for jibs, too much response will make you slide out of grind
this is my second pair of missions and i would have to say im hooked. they defiantly stepped up the game for 2011. there a little lighter and way more feedback. great binding for the whole mountain and freestyle riding.
I demo'd these bindings this year in Utah and they were the best bindings ive ever riddin. Theyre easy to get in and out of and hold up pretty solid. Id say theyre the best for park but liked them all over the mountain. Theyre pretty comfy too. Im about to get a pair after trying them out. Definately recommended!
going from the burton freestyle to the mission bindings, i liked the freestyles but man i love the missions....full length eva cushion dampens the ride, great super strap keeps the ride smooth comfortable...like the cap strap on this one over the freestyl
I use these bindings on my Sierra Crew, and they are just perfect! They make the board so responsive, and precise. You can tweak them to your liking, mostly without tools thanks to Burton's tooless design. Straps are very comfortable, rides smooth. Would defiantly recommended, would buy again
These bindings are nice and durable. I have not had any problems and they hold my toes and boots securely on the board no matter what i'm doing on the mountain. A decent mid-entry level binding. Maybe i would only upgrade to est's next time but overall i'm happy with them.
I got these bindings to put on my burton sweettalker and i love them, the highbacks are so amazing, they are incredibly responsive and allow me to do everything i want in the park without messing up (for the most part) they are also very good for high speed riding in my opinion, also they are very customizable and they allow you to get your stance to exactly how you want, they just look incredibly awesome aswell which could be considered a selling poin
Used these with my Sierra Crew over the last 10 days and have got to say theyve been awesome. Im only an intermediate rider at best and had no problems with these. Easy enough to change up positioning on the board and pretty responsive. They have marked the board but the Sierra Crew scratched when snow touches it so not sure how it goes on other boards. Good build, look good and work well
bought these on sale on a whim. actually liked these better than a set of flows i borrowed from a friend. although not quite as quick to put on as the flows, it wasn't like they were half way down the mountain by the time i got strapped in like other people have exaggereated. great fit, great price (on sale) and have no complaints
I.Love.These.Bindings..... I bought them last year for my Burton Twin and I have fallen in love. I used to own Burton Customs and these are a big step up from those. Cushioned toe straps help with adding some flex to your foot in the bindings and leave you with an overall comfortable ride. These are not the most aggressive bindings but they could hold up with some of the best!
I always have a pair of Mission bindings sitting around. You can never go wrong buying a pair of these. I love to ride this in the park and in the pipe. They also work well for pow. Don't buy this unless you are a seasoned rider.
Great park binding, i ride these with my sierra stunt and the pair are perfect. I have a pair of 2011 Awols size 10.5 and the medium missions. Sizing is pretty vague with burton bindings and took me a while to decide. My boots are a snug fit in the medium and took a fair bit of adjusting to get them to fit nicely. Any bigger then 10.5 and definately reccommend large, even though burton's sizing chart is up to size 11 boots for a medium binding you would be lucky to make them fit. Bindings are pretty responsive and super soft on landings, great for medium to large kickers and gaps. Highly reccomended for a park/ freestle binding
These are really good bindings. they have a mid flex but also have identical high backs to the cartels which are my favorite bindings. they are great for all mtn and the park. every now and then the straps come off while riding which sucks. other than that great bindings.
Bought these bindings for my first set-up. I thought it was well worth the money. Toe straps are definitely more comfortable than the orthodox strap going over the instep of your foot. Although it is high-back I constantly wish it was higher and stiffer but that might be variant depending on your own preference while riding
My first pair of bindings and I still ride with them. The only issue I had was that the ankle straps weren't cushioned as the higher-end Burton brands. Anyways, I replaced the straps with Cartel straps and they're sweet
I'm a dedicated park boarder, but I do know that these binding are very well rounded! Great for powder, back country, park, and even just shredding the groomers. I used to use the Burton customs, which I thought were cheaper versions of these, but then I realized the reason why their cheaper. They are not durable at all, so I bought the missions, though heavier, are defiantly worth the load.
These bindings are awesome. Im sure there are better higher end bindings out there, but for the money, they're a steal. super comfy and easy to strap in and out of. As far as others saying the toe slips out of them, thats never happened for me. Feel really secure when straped in. Only drawback is the highbacks dont rotate as smoothly as I would like.
I went from Unincs to the new missions and didn't feel that I lost anything in response or feel. The highbacks and ankle straps were great. I do despise the capstraps as they slid on top of my boots 2 or 3 times a day. Ultimately, I would say it's a good binding at a good price point
I don't really own this binding but a friend of mine does and I had the pleasure of trying this binding on. This is a great set of a binding after I went down the slopes, I wanted to steal his binding from him! Great for mid-level and entry-level boarders out there
The greatest feature of the Mission binding is the Capstrap toe strap, which redefines comfort in snowboard bindings. The Capstrap wraps around both the top and front of your toes for comfort and control that is second to none. Several other binding manufacturers have their own versions of this type of toe strap, but none have the same level of comfort and control as Burton's Capstrap in my opinion. If your boots only have minimal padding over the top of the foot, and you feel foot discomfort as a result, the Capstraps are the solution you have been looking for.
Overall awesome bindings. From speeding through groomers to powering through powder, these binging have done an awesome job holding me to the board. Easy transitions on the baseplate don't keep you from riding if you want to change up your stance on the mountain. No real cons besides having to tighten them up every once in a while, but I definitely suggest these beautie
Friends uses these and let me try them out. They are very comfortable and ride very well. Quick strap in and out. No hassle with these bindings. If you need a solid binding for a good price, go for these
I picked these up for my first set of bindings. They are really comfortable and have been incredibly responsive for me. After a couple rides the ratchets tend to get packed with snow and it is difficult to tighten the straps all the way down. Other than that these bindings have been amazing!
burton is doing something right with the missions. i havent had any problems with these at all. the new highback from the cartels is pretty supportive but gives it a good response. the only thing i could gripe about is the binding not having a dampening pad so your board doesnt get scratched..
I think these are good bindings for the most part, but just not for me. I tend to ride more on the steeps and tree runs and what not where response is key!! I wasnt really impressed with base plate either, I blew mine to pieces on a 25ft table and I'm pretty sure I wouldnt have had that problem if they were made out of a more durable material (i.e. metal). However I can see how this would be a great binding for a more freestyle/park rider. They are really adjustable and are reasonably lightweight. The best feature on these bindings for me was the toe cap, I was skeptical at first, but they have me convinced that it's good technology.
These are some sweet looking binds but the quality was not there for what i though you should get out of Burton. Very difficult to get to my toe edge but almost to touchy on its heel edge. it was comfortable at first after a while feet hurt a lot! Now i was told before demoing these bindings that Burton bindings are made for Burton boots, i ride really bad Morrows so that could be a reason it hurt so much
I've had these bindings for 2 years. I am a mostly freestyle rider. These bindings have too stiff of a flex for my liking. The screws on the straps do not hold well at all and the base plates (both) have cracked on me.
Best Answer:Burton small bindings fit sizes 7 and 8 boots. Their large bindings fit sizes 8 - 11. The bindings include the "gas pedal" which extends to the full length of the sole. The 8.5 boot should fit into small bindings, but the straps may feel a little short, which can be annoying when strapping in. Also consider the larger size if the bindings are for a teenager. The larger size will accommodate their growing feet and save you money in the long run.
I would go for a Men's Medium if you're in a Men's 8.5. Depending on exactly which boot you have, you COULD make a Small work, most likely, but guaranteed a Medium will work (and still won't be too big)...
