Minimalism makes for maximum comfort in the 2013-2014 upgrade to Burton's popular Genesis binding, thanks to a full-suspension Kickback Hammock Hi-Back and new Hammockstrap top strap. Burton also reinvented its strap and buckle system with a new twist for the Genesis, turning the strap's ratchet ridges 15 degrees on the bias to provide additional points of contact with the new Double Take Buckles.
