Unchanged for 2018/19, the Burton Lexa women’s snowboard bindings remain one of the safest bets out there. Unless you’re in the market for something really niche – a stiff-as-hell carbon freeride model, for example – then you’re likely to find exactly what you’re looking for here.
The Burton Lexa bindings have a medium-stiff flex, which can handle high speeds and fast edge changes, but isn’t so rigid that you can’t have fun with it. Freestyle is definitely an option thanks in part to the impact-absorbing gel in the footbed, as well as the asymmetrical ankle strap.
“The all-mountain credentials of the Burton Lexa women’s bindings are well established, and this winter is no different”
Straight out of the box, the straps are focused on supporting your foot, but if you swap the left and right ones round then you are able to flex your boot a little more. Should you like your turns a bit surfier, or want a bit more freedom for presses and tweaks in the park, that’d be the way to go. Swapping from one to the other is a piece of cake thanks to Burton’s tool-free system that ranks among one of the best out there.
The all-mountain credentials of the Burton Lexa women’s bindings are well established, and this winter is no different. If you’re concerned about the price tag, don’t be; these things are notoriously hard to break.
