Actually, he did have one, and he cursed it every transition.
I think Karakoram is miles ahead of Burton's old crap.
I resent that comment. "Transition" implies that i actually successfully completed a switch from tour mode to ride mode, instead of spending hours fiddling with frozen fingers, dragging the thing home by the leash one day, burying it in the yard and salting the earth with my piss.
The only thing worse than Burton's binding system was their board. It was like riding a coffin lid. Why i stuck with it for so many seasons I'll never know.
