Burton Scribe 2018-2019 Women’s Snowboard Bindings Review

The Burton Scribe women’s snowboard bindings are among the brands longest-serving pairs. For the price, they punch far above their weight, making them a fine choice for more advanced riders on a budget. At the same time, they have the comfort factor that makes them a great choice for those still progressing.

Softer than both the Burton Lexa or Escapade, the Burton Scribe is the best choice for mellower riding, wherever on the mountain it may be. From surfy turns in the powder to creative mini-shred on the piste or in the park, these offer the most freedom to flex.

The highback is also quite short, built more for freestyle and less for hard carves. It’s supportive enough, though, so won’t feel limp when you do want to do a bit of charging. You can add a bit of forward lean with a quick twist of the dial found right above the heelcup, and you can change the angles they sit at for a more comfortable ride.

The ankle strap is plush yet supportive, able to cradle any boot in comfort, while the cap strap gives you the most secure fit possible. Like all components on the Burton Scribe, the size of both straps has been tweaked with a female-specific design.

“The Scribe’s proven record of comfort and performance for the freestyle-minded rider should be all the reassurance you need”

As has been the case for nearly a decade now, there is a choice of either the Re:Flex version – which offers the standard four-screw mount – or the EST version, compatible only with Channel boards. As you might have guessed, the key difference is the footbed, but both are very effective so the decider should purely be which system you have a preference for.

Whichever you choose, the Burton Scribe’s proven record of comfort and performance for the freestyle-minded rider should be all the reassurance you need, although the lifetime warranty on the baseplate is a nice touch too.

Tester’s Verdict

“The Scribes were exactly what you’d expect for a mid-range women’s binding – they felt nice and secure at all times.

“Getting your straps done up on the fly has never been easier”

The slightly cut-out highback reduced their overall weight, and left them feeling nice and flexy. The milled-out strap meant getting in and out of them was a breeze – getting your straps done up on the fly has never been easier.

A nice do-it-all binding, with a big comfort benefit.”
