How degrading was it for snowboarders back in the day to have to step into their bindings to ride… Just like skiers? Not to mention the fact that the components were always packed with snow and / or ice making it nearly impossible to engage the binding with the boot properly. Lastly, how about those boots with the binding heel strap integrated into the boot, making it stiff, impossible, bulky, and ugly? Well, good news, those are all things of the future! The Burton step-in binding is back as the “step-on binding”.
