Burton Ion Step On 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Ion Step On boot takes the Ion, makes it quick release and also makes it much more responsive than the regular Ion boot paired up with almost any binding out there.  You pay a price in adjustability and it’s not perfect but if you are looking for an easy in/out boot/binding combo this is one of the best.  For most of us at The Good Ride, we are still more into traditional boot/binding combos’, but this is a hand’s down the best the quick release set up we have tested and it’s the one we would for sure recommend.

Burton Ion Step On 2019 Snowboard Boot Review SKU UPC Model

Really good with wide boards

I rode the step on-ion combo all of last season. I have experienced only advantages compared to traditional straps where my feet would go numb if they were tight enough to give the response I wanted. The convenience is nice, but for me the main advantage is the increased response and increased comfort. Riding a wide board has always increased the amount of leverage I needed to carve toeside, and the step on-ions finally gave me a nice symmetric heel-toe response that i could only find with narrower boards in the past.
I understand the Good Ride's reservations about going big with these since they are new and we aren't used to them. However, I again have only experienced advantages when going big off drops and kickers. I felt more stable and secured to the board, more sure of my edge control, and in more control over the boards pop.
As a bigger rider on wide boards, these bindings-boots are what I have been looking for for a long time. I very highly recommend them.
