The Burton Step On snowboard bindings took the world by storm. Whether this was due to the excitement of a new product or the increased laziness of people is a conversation we’ll save for another day. Either way, the reason these bindings are still flying off the shelves is because they actually work.
If you look past the Step On technology, you’ll realise the bindings are as good as any other pair of Burton bindings. The FullBED cushioning system ensures a comfortable ride, while the rest of the baseplate provides both strength and flex to the binding. With highbacks more firm on the inside but flexier on the outside, the Step Ons make for the ideal pair of responsive all-mountain bindings.

Stepping into the Step Ons requires some getting used too though. Make sure you’ve stepped in properly, otherwise you’ll be wobbling around the slopes like someone who’s just discovered the sweet, sweet, joys of happy hour. Firstly, place your heel into the highback and then, once it is attached, press down your toes to attach them to the front of the binding. We know it doesn’t sound like rocket science but, believe us, you’ll want to double check you’re properly attached – especially when you’re first starting to use them.
Despite the Step Ons being compatible with any major mounting system, you should bear in mind that so far Burton is the only brand to produce Step On compatible snowboard boots. Make sure you try out the boots prior to buying the bindings, just to be sure they fit your feet.
