Burton Step On Splitboard Bindings Launch [Due 2024!]

by Fraser

Burton Snowboards, world-renowned pioneers of snowboarding gear and apparel, have finally announced the launch of the Burton Step On Splitboard Bindings!

Whilst it has been floating around the rumor mill for several seasons, the big B surprised us today by announcing their arrival for the 2023-2024 season.

In fact, they’ll be available from November 20th, with the possibility of pre-order opening sooner. 

The Evolution of Splitboard Technology

Building on the legacy of the already popular Burton Step Ons, the Splitboard version promises a seamless blend of innovation, design, and efficiency for backcountry enthusiasts.

Splitboarding has surged in popularity among snowboarders seeking untouched lines and pristine powder in the backcountry. Which means the demand for equipment that can meet these unique challenges has grown exponentially.

Burton’s new Step On Splitboard Bindings are the company’s answer to that demand.

Features of the Splitboard Step Ons*

Key Features of the Burton Step On Splitboard Bindings are likely to be:

  • Immediate Engagement: Like the original Step Ons, riders can expect intuitive engagement without the need for straps, optimizing speed and efficiency during transitions.

  • Tailored for the Tour: Specifically designed features to enhance uphill performance, making the climb as enjoyable as the ride down.

  • Rugged Durability: Constructed to withstand the rigors of backcountry trekking, ensuring riders are equipped for both the journey and the destination.

  • Enhanced Mobility: An innovative pivot system offers unparalleled freedom of movement, ensuring splitboarders can tackle any terrain with confidence.

*The full product details were not available at the time of writing. I’ll update the list above when further details are leaked!

Final Thoughts

Love them or hate them, Burton have been pushing the boundaries of snowboard technology since 1977.

It’s great to see that there’re still pushing hard to advance the sport. 

I’ll certainly be giving the latest Splitboard bindings a go. But I’m curious what you think… interested? Or is this just another case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?”
