Burton Scribe EST 2016 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Scribe EST is for Burton boards only which requires 100% brand commitment.  You get a little flex under foot but our 2 cents is just stick with the regular scribe. The re:flex tech with the regular scribe offers a flex under foot that is almost as good as the EST and you can buy other boards.  If you are married to Burton then you will get a little more flex underfoot.

The 2014 Burton Scribe EST dropped the larger asymmetrical ankle strap and we liked the bigger one. This still is a good binding that makes freestyle to freestylish boards flex very well under foot.

Flex: Same great asymmetrical flex that the Re:Flex binding has.

Adjustability: Very easy to adjust but it could be just a bit better.  It would be better to see 100% tool-less adjustment above the disc.

Comfort:Great comfortable ankle strap and toe strap.  It’s not the best of the Burton Line but it does a very good job eliminating pressure points.

Heel-Toe Response: It’s got a little bump in response over the Re:Flex but not too much.

Tip-Tail Response: The EST is going to make your board easier to flex. The 2013 had a little more leverage due to the larger ankle strap over the smaller 2014 Ankle strap.

Boot Support: There is a nice balance of support and freedom.  There was support on the outside and easy movement on the inside with the 2013 but now the 2014 is a little more free on the outside.  Some will like this and others will prefer the 2013 model over the 2014.

Ratchet System: It’s not the Best Burton ratchet system but it’s still very good compared to most bindings in the industry.

Shock Absorption: as good as it gets when it comes to shock absorption. The whole foot from heel to toe has good shock absorption.
