They aren’t going so far as using the dreaded word “RECALL” but the folks at Burton have issued an advisory for immediate upgrades on the heel cleat of their much anticipated Step On™Binding system. Here is the official statement from Burton:
“The Heel Cleat component found on all Burton Step On™ boots features two levels of connection with two different engagement positions. Position 1 is designed to accommodate for underfoot snowpack. The final heel engagement position, Position 2, is the optimal and most common riding position.
We’ve discovered a possible issue in which the Heel Cleat may not properly engage when in Position 1. While this only affects the functionality of Position 1, we strongly advise an immediate update to the Heel Cleat on your Step On boots.
Until this update has been made, please ride with the Heel Cleat engaged in Position 2.”
If you or anyone you know plans on riding the Burton Step On Bindings, please take heed and upgrade. Complete info HERE.
