The Burton Step On

Burton are the biggest and best snowboarding company in the industry. Burton are continuously developing their product and one of their newest and boldest is the reintroduction of the step in system. This made a brief appearance in the 90’s and then disappeared. However Burton have rebranded and launched again as the Step on system. Not for every style of rider but definitely worth trying and giving them a test run. You might just fall in love with them!

Here at Vivid Snowboarding we have been testing and riding this product. They are strong, lightweight and durable. The boots connect to the binding with two connection points on the front of the boots and one at the back on the heel. Once you’ve managed the connection a couple of times this becomes second nature. To release your boot from the binding there is a simple leaver to pull up.

Burton have created a simple and effective connection between board and bindings. They want the constant hassle of strapping in and out of the bindings taken away. Their new system is in its infancy but it works and feels good! Other brands have now also followed Burton into the strapless world. K2 have relaunched their clicker system which is again a blast from the past. The 90’s are coming back!

Burton have grown their step on range for the coming season. The boots will vary slightly in relation to support, durability and weight. It will always be worth trying out a few different styles so that you get the most comfortable boot for yourself. Remember your boots are the number one most important piece of kit, then you’re binding and then you’re snowboard.

For Winter 2020 – 2021 Burton will be offering the following step on boots:

  • The Ion step on
