My friend got a new Burton board, but didn't realize he wouldn't be able to use his older Mission bindings. We used a pair of these so he wouldn't have to buy new EST bindings. Worked great and they were simple to use
Burton really made a mess with this ICS/EST Junk. I could not find any Burton EST Bindings and I had no way to ride my new custom V rocker. Luckily, I found the Retro Disk, which allows me use any Burton Binding from 2010 or older. I am using 2008 cartels on my custom V rocker with the channel system and love it
Yes, these fit any size Burton Binding. EST Burton Escapades have a response rating of 6 while the traditional Burton Escapades have a response of 7. Traditional Escapades are slightly stiffer due to the solid base plate. So if you want to rock your slightly stiffer binding, slap these on! Yes, you can get these free from Burton, but it will take a lot longer than here. So if you're going to board in the next week or 2, cop these here
In my opinion, using these discs feels just like riding EST bindings. Yes, they are a little heavy, but it WILL NOT AFFECT YOUR RIDE! Call burton and get a free pair, or add them to a ICS board here's site if you want to get it all together, hassle free
I love Burton channel boards but I hate the EST bindings and they're too expensive. So this comes in handy, it works with non EST Burton bindings, Forum bindings, and I hear it might also work with Unions. I just wish they had different color options but other than that these things work great
These discs are pure genius and will allow you to use any Burton binding on your ICS board. If you bought a new Burton ICS board but still want to rock out with non EST bindings, these plates are the way to go
These Burton Discs will allow you to fit any Burton binding you want on the Burton ICS binding interface. You can also figgle with the discs to make them work with Union Bindings to make them sit in there, as well as forum bindings as well. These are great with the padding on there, I love the ICS system on the boards, and be able to use Union bindings makes it the perfect setup
These are a must have if you don't want to be limited to the ICS system. I use this with my regular Cartels and they work flawlessly in the channel. Try and get the padded ones if possible, but if not, these are definitely a great purchase and will last a very long time ( super durable and built well!
When I bought my new bindings and found out I ordered the non EST bindings, I just ordered a pair of these retro disks and it solved the problem. I feel that they do just as good at converting as a normal EST would bind to the board. Would buy again if I find a good price on non-EST and need to convert up again
The Burton Retro Disc will integrate any non-EST binding to fit Burton boards with the Channel System. When I used mine this past season the discs held up very well, sustaining impacts and freezing cold temps. These can be adjusted quickly while on the hill if needed
Seeing as these aren't free overseas I had to initially fork out $30 to buy these here in Australia. So now that these are available here for such a good price you'd be crazy not to buy it. So unless you want to buy a new set of bindings this is the cheapest I've seen the discs that'll let you use your old bindings on the new Burton boards.
These are the discs you have been dreaming about for years!! Not everyone likes dishing out a couple hundo for new bindings when they just dropped some major coin on their new ICS board. These discs allow you to use any of your Burton bindings on the Burton ICS boards. These discs make you, your bindings and your board legit!!! So stop what you are doing and buy these discs ASAP!!
Alrite team, here's the deal. No need to buy EST bindings when you can order these bad boys up and use your regular, non-EST Burton bindings that you've been using all along. Fight back against the man, save some cheese, and toss these on your ICS boards for optimum shreddage. International members no longer need to deal with angry Burton customer service in their respective countries, but can instead order these direct! Really what more could you ask for?
Finally! I can borrow a friend's ICS board with my current Burton Cartel (traditional) bindings! Having these made the sting of picking up a new Custom X ICS that much less, too, since I won't need another pair of bindings that will only fit one of my boards
I would say Burton did a great job when they market their new ICS board with these. I email burton to get a free pair of disc along with the extra screws when buying my ICS board. And you also make it easy for all of us to get them here with a cheap price. I used to use them with my old cartel and CO2 binding on the my ICS board. The disc fit both bindings very well and the responsiveness of the ICS board is better than the my old custom. I rode them until I really spend money on the EST which is lighter and even feels better. Again you can get these for free when you got the board. But not the EST bindings. They had the hardware with the board only. 2 cons, a bit heavy and no color for selection but over all thanks to Burton for making them free
So you bought a brand new Burton Board then realized that ICS means Infinite Channel System and your old bindings won't work, sadness ensues :'( BUT WAIT!!!! Just pick up a pair of these easy to use adapter discs and your old Burton bindings fit on your new disc. Just align these puppies to the angles you want, 18 and -18 if you're extra gangsta, UHHHHHHHHHH, tighten them down and go butter that muffin
I temporarily borrowed my friend's Forces (awesome!) when my Mission's toe strap malfunctioned. Got a pair of these disks from a local shop, and well, I could put it on without any hassle. Good stuff. Makes the board a tiny bit heavier but not to the point that it's noticeable. Like it claims, it pretty much provides good performance, though I could feel a tiny change. (maybe it's just me) For around 10 bucks, this was very worth it
These work great to fit in the bottom of your bindings to adjust the angle of them on your bindings so if anything happens or you like to mix it up then you can change them up very easily. These also have many different bolt patterns so they fit a lot of different boards. I use these in the bottom of my bindings and I love using them and would suggest them to anyone.
I got these so I could use my non-Burton binders on my Burton Fix. They fit my Technine Team 1's and my Union Contact Pro's (snuggly, just barely makes it in) BUT I guess your board has to be a 2010 or newer as the screws stick up. Not sure what changes in the newer boards. If you have an older ICS board, you either have to: A. Live with the feeling of two screws at the bottom of your feet or B. Take off some excess material where the screws go. But that probably weakens the plate. They do seem extra beefy though C. or in my case, take off the extra material in the footbed of my Contact Pro's to minimize the feel of the screws. Pretty nice of Burton to make these. But if they hadn't there would be a lot more haters out there. And I would be one of them
Finally! This was a great move for burton to make! I slapped these on my Republics so I can ride on my Burton Custom and it fits great! I think a little bit of the responsiveness went down, but still works great
I got the Burton X8 but standard Burton bindings, so I needed these to strap 'em together. They're a little heavy, but seem very stiff and strong. I've done 15 days on them, and haven't had any problems. They're a necessity if you have an EST board but regular bindings. And nice and cheap here too. What more can I say? They're fine
I am a big fan of burton boards and how they are keeping the industry in a state of constant progression. However, not all of us like their bindings so this is the answer. One of the best products a burton rider can buy
I used this for my bindings which are not from Burton and these are amazing. I have the Burton Hero and I use these disks for my other bindings. I wish there were color options, then that would be sweet
So I got these bad boys and yes they work... Yes they save you money and you get to keep your old binders. But there is some minor setbacks. 1. You don't get any color choice, not a big deal. 2. The top looks like crap, doesn't look like they spent much time on finishing them and making them look good, looks like they just popped out of a mold and threw em in the truck. 3. They are not as secure as the est binding ones. They don't tighten as much and I had to tighten them 3 times during one night of riding, but they work. You could just call burton and they will mail you some for free though.. :
I used these before my padded discs, and these worked just as well, but I do slightly prefer those padded ones. These lock tight with the base, and there are no compatibility issues what-so ever! They even work on Forum Bindings and if you do a little modification, they can work with your Union bindings as well, which I have done, and they work pretty well. If you can find the padded ones, definitely get those, but these are just fine. A great thing to have if you don't have EST bindings, or don't want to use them
Best Answer:Yep you can get the retro disks and make any binding work with a newer burton channel board. You don't get all the advantages of having a true EST binding but unless you want to spend another couple hundred on burton bindings this is a good solution. Happy riding
will this conversion kit work with my 2009 salomon code bindings?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2014
Best Answer:Hey, This will not. If you are trying to convert Salomon bindings to the Channel System, you will have to get a Salomon plate. You can chat with our warranty guys: 1 (800) 409-7669, they some info on this... otherwise you can check with Salomon themselves too.
Best Answer:I doubt it. The bolt holes that are used to hold the plate to the board are specific to the Burton Channel mount systems (slot down the middle) and the serrations around the underneath outside, that clamp on the binding are (I think) specific to burton stuff (although I'm not a snowboard binding expert)
These discs will ONLY make the older Burton disc bindings compatible with the current channel boards. It will NOT work with any other brand of bindings and it will not work on any board that does not have a channel.
Best Answer:Hey, This is not as simple as you might think. As Burton has changed the EST system a couple of times there is some variation. Chat with our warranty guys, and they can set you up with some plates that will be perfect! 1 (800) 409-7669.
I have an old burton 3D board which uses the 3 screws bindings system. Can the Burton Retro Disk help in letting me use new bindings such as the Est type(channel system) with my old board 3 screw system? Thanks.
Best Answer:Hi Allison, This plate is for a really specific Burton set-up. To convert your GNU bindings to a Channel Board you will want to head over to GNU's site (they have the correct plates) or chat with our warranty guys: 1 (800) 409-7669
Best Answer:Hi Sidney. These are designed for Burton bindings, and really will not work with anything else. If you have (or are looking at) a Channel System board, Flow does make converter plates. Chat with our warranty guy before your buy the bindings and we may be able to throw in the correct plates: 1 (800) 409-7669. Otherwise contact Flow themselves.
Hi, I just purchased a 2010 G Twin, which comes with before 2011 ICS system. I also got a 2014 Escapade EST bindings. My bindings do not fit the board, as the Channel after 2011 is wider. Is it what I need to make them comparable? Thank you
I have burton step in bindings (only 4x4 mounting discs) and I just bought the burton starwars 115cm for my kid and it appears to have the 3d. Does these mounting disc would work? If not where can I find some burton 3d mounting discs?
Just ordered a GNU metal guru 2013, i have older burton bindings at home on my old burton board. I don't think i am going to buy new bindings just yet if i can find a plate that will work. Will this one work? if not any suggestions as to what will?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2014
Best Answer:This binding will only work with Burton channel system boards. You will need a disc with a 2x2 hole pattern. You bindings likely came with this disc as well a the three hole disc so if you still have the box check there.
Three questions, suggested retail is $14.95 and with a 47% discount your price is $21.95? Maybe that math is reversed? I just ordered a new ICS board and just realized I'll need to retro fit my current Burton bindings. Does the board come with the retro disc channel disc or separate purchase? If purchase is it too late to add to the board order?
I'm so glad that you used correct terminology when writing about your board: referring to it as an ICS board instead of the often mistaken EST board.
1. You're right about the Burton Retro Disc pricing. The suggested retail is $21.95 and we are selling them for $14.95. We will be updating the page momentarily.
2. ICS Boards do not come with ICS compatible discs. You will have to purchase the Burton Retro Disc taht is found on this page. The Burton Retro Disc is also known as the Burton M6 Transition Kit, it comes with 2 discs and mounting hardware.
3. Yes if you already purchased your board it is too late to add the Burton Retro Disc to your order.
I hope that helps, let me know if you need anything else. Enjoy the season!
I have a K2 parkstar that I just got and I still have my old burton bindings that uses a 3D mounting pattern plate. It doesn't line up obviously. Can I use these discs to replace the 3D mounting pattern discs on my bindings to make them work? If not is there any way to make these bindings work with the 2x4 mounting pattern that my board has?
Best Answer:I can't really know if they will work in your case as I had a 2003 burton board that used a 3 hole pattern and went to a new burton board with the est channel. For that, these work fine although now using 2 bolts instead of 3.
