IN 1977, Jake Burton Carpenter founded Burton out of his Vermont barn. Since then, Burton has fueled the growth of snowboarding worldwide through its groundbreaking product lines, its team of top snowboarders and its grassroots efforts to get the sport accepted at resorts. In 1996, Burton began growing its family of brands to include boardsports and apparel brands. Privately held and owned by Jake, Burton's headquarters are in Burlington, Vermont with offices in California, Austria, Japan and Australia.
Burton Snowboard Bindings for 2011 have an awesome range of features and prices to accommodate any rider. Basically pricing is based around the material composition of the baseplate. At the high performance end the baseplates will be comprised of dual components like short glass and nylon. At the lower end the baseplates are made up of a single component material. For the jibber in all of us, check out the Cobrashark binding. Enjoy.
