The Channel system is awesome because it gives you infinite* stance width/positioning options. If you have ever had issues getting your stance perfect on a board with a different insert pattern, those issues are now gone with the Channel. It also gives you the ability to adjust your stance on the fly if you are looking to set it back for powder, or tweak it ever so slightly!
- Ease of adjustabilty - No need to take screws out to make minute adjustments.
- Higher pull-out strength from the board itself than traditional inserts. The Channel is stronger!
- M6 Channel boards can be adapted to almost any binding company. They are also compatible with any traditional disc Burton binding with an M6 Transition Kit.
- Most other binding companies make discs to allow them to mount to The Channel. Contact your binding manufacturer to check availability.
- The boards can be manufactured thinner than traditional inserts (traditional boards are ~6mm thick, our channel boards are manufactured at ~5.4mm thick) - Channel boards can be lighter!
- *Infinite stance options* can be achieved on the channel by making any minute adjustment within the channel track.
- EST bindings which mount outside the footbed limit the width of the rider’s stance on the channel as compared to the Re:Flex bindings which mount underneath the feet.
- If you are on the right size snowboard, stance width should not be an issue on EST bindings.
- EST bindings max out on angles before 30 degrees each way (roughly positive 25, negative 10); if you prefer an alpine-racing stance with angles greater than these, you should ride Burton Re:Flex bindings.
*Stance options not truly 'infinite,' but there are hundreds of thousands of possible stances
