Burton Step On: Snowboarding Simplified

When it comes to innovation in the snowboard world, there are few, if any, that have the ability to R&D like Burton! They have continued their roll, and fresh off a sell-out season last year, the new 2020 Burton Step Ons Binding System has landed.

Haven’t heard of it? Check out all you need to know below.

What are Burton Step Ons?

Burton Step Ons are the revolutionary concept of how bindings and boots can work together seamlessly. This binding and boot combo offers the quickest and easiest binding connection there is, without the need to sit and strap in. Simply slide your heel down into the locking mechanism, then weight your toes to click those in and you’re off!

The latest release features four boot options for men (Ruler, Swash, Photon and Ion boot), three boot options for women (Limelight or Step On Felix boot), and 4 binding styles; coming in Black, Black/White, Volts and White/Blue.

Burton Step Ons are a great snowboarding choice for beginners learning to snowboard, through to pros seeking unprecedented performance.

What are the Pros and Cons of Burton Step Ons?


Ease & Simplicity

The biggest advantage and reason many adopt Step Ons is its ease of use – the driving force behind the concept. Removing the need to sit down and strap in, the Step Ons embody ultimate simplicity allowing users to step onto their bindings and quickly hit the slopes. The quick and easy connection is super straight-forward - slide your heel down into the locking mechanism, then weight your toes to click those in and you’re off!

Solid Bindings

Another check in the pro column is that the Step Ons remain a solid binding system thanks in part to the solid engineering effort from Burton, feeling no different to normal strap bindings. With a soft responsive baseplate and an easily adjustable strong highback, Step Ons are ideal for the all-round riders. In addition to that, the bindings are also compatible with all the major mounting systems out there, so you don’t have to own a Burton board in order to enjoy them.

Secure Connection Points

With three connection points, two at the toes and one at the heel, these bindings hold you in and feel just like your straps, no jokes! This allows you to ride without any fears of unclipping! The quick release lever ensures you can unhook with ease before you get on the lift. Step Ons may also be a little more responsive than strapped bindings. Being able to drive turns from a locked heel gives for quicker response when riding.


There are barely any cons with the Burton Step On system, but there are a few specifics that might not be for everyone.

Boot Fit

Burton Step On boots are an identical fit to regular Burton boots, yet as people have different foot shapes, some people may find they don’t fit into Burton boots as well as other brands. If you are a person that fits into Burton boots then this is definitely a product for you. If you are unsure about fitting into Snowboards Boots, Burton Boots or Steps Ons you can visit Auski in-store and get a Boot specialist to run through a whole fitting for you. This will make sure that the most important piece of your snowboard set up is just right for you.
