Burton’s New Step-In Binding Patent

by The Editors on November 16, 2015

burton_patentOn October 6, 2015 The Burton Corporation was awarded a patent (# US 9,147,711 B1) for a “snowboard binding and boot,” according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent was filed on November 14, 2014.

The newly patented system, which looks similar to the Burton SI bindings of yesteryear with the addition of an elaborate heel latching mechanism, was apparently “invented” by Raymond Robert Kavarsky, Jr., Christopher M. Doyle, and Scott T. Keller.

We especially enjoyed the references list which includes patents held by a host of familiar names including: Fournier, KarolMorrow, Sanders, Raines, Meiselman, Alden, Warburton, Pelchat, and even Spademan.
