General Description: Cultivating the most capable Burton Cartel binding takes years in the game, and after a grip of seasons pushing progression, this edition achieves this absolute. Cartel is a superb mid range binding and one of Burtons best sellers. The Cartels do very well at high speed and don’t allow much of your board’s chatter to pass through to your feet. Available in two versions, choose the across-the-board compatibility of Re:Flex™ or the ultimate flex and feel of EST® and experience a new era in pro-caliber control. The Hinge (on the EST® version only) activates medial and lateral flex for reduced fatigue, a smoother feel, and easier ollies, while AutoCANT cushioning on both the EST and Re:Flex versions equals anatomic comfort. The rapid ratcheting of Double Take Buckles on an upgraded strap package will have you dropping in first. With a moderate flex that doesn’t sacrifice drive, the Cartel is the pro’s choice for mid-range flex and all-terrain versatility. This is a binding that has passed every test that has been thrown at it over the years and come through with flying colours.
