Great binding, awesome handling and response. This is my second Cartel already. I had last years model and my highback broke on the last day of the season, but Burton was so nice to send me this year's model at no extra charge.
Everything that is just for the looks on the Cartel comes off fairly easily, such as the little copper parts on the side. That's the only reason why it just isn't enough for 5 stars.
I will not be able to run these until next year. However, I have used the Cartel on my buddies board and they are excellent! Construction is all around very durable and quality. Burton took time to engineer every part of these right down to the leash and bolts that come with improved locking to insure they do not loosen over years of use. Every part of the binding is fully adjustable for perfect fit to any boot! Best feature is the toe cup no other binding holds you in as well! Also comes with separate adapter disks for non Burton patterns.
The Bindings Rock !
My Burton Cartels are the best bindings I've ever had. The thing I love most about them is the ease of strapping in and out of them.
I'm not a hard core snowboarder, so I don't have a really technical way to describe them as far as what they do when I carve down the hill, or do a 1080 back flip, (because I'm not doing 1080s.. Yet)
However, they are very comfortable bindings !
I hope that helps.
Thanks to Dog Funk for putting up with my returning my original order after I managed to use the wrong sizing chart! They did it fast and it was a no hassle deal. Anyway, these are light, flexible and tough and everybody who's jumped on them loves em. Do be aware that the adjustment screw on the upper strap creates a pressure point that you can really feel on your ankle if you keep strapped in all day. It would be good if they increased the density of the foam around it or put in a small plate to spread the pressure. Also, I had to dab some super glue on the toe cap stitching because it started to back out after a couple of days. Looks like it wasn't tied off very well at the end of the stitch. All easy fixes and in the end I'd buy them again. Super light and tons of set up positions.
I ordered these bindings and they are great. they help me stomp everything. good response and i got them in green. i would highly recommend them
Has NASA been working with Jake?
Anyone knows if NASA has been working with Jake this last 07 season? MY GOD CARTEL BINDINGS TOTALLY KICKS ASS FROM EVERY OTHER BINDING! And I'm still not talking about the price you pay for them! This are definitely the best bindings I ever had. If you are looking for some awesome bindings and a awesome deal for the money, don't even think about getting another thing: this is it!
Cartel's for the win!!!
Very nice setup, I had complete control on all terrain that I crossed. Turning was a much more natural feel with these bindings. Definetly a must have....
The Cali' Cartel
why does Burton have to sound like they are involved with drug crimes when naming their gear..?that aside, these are my 1st true high-back bindings..coming off of Flows and before them K2 Clickers ..I really noticed a difference in heel to toe control when using the Cartels ..seem to be built well and better than The Missions by far..
Burton Cartel Bindings
I used my Cartel's for 2 snowboarding trips and they have been great bindings. They are very adjustable and I am very surprised at how light-weight they are. It is gonna take a little while to get used to the highback because I am not used to it being as high. The high back is a little uncomfortable because it digs into my calf pretty good, but I think I just need to adjust it a little bit. Overall, these bindings are awesome and cool-looking! I definitely would recommend them to anyone.
these binding are sweet the hight back is awesome. i mean awesome looks - the cap strap really works. i feel a lot better with these bindings then i did with my old ones.these kick @$$
i recommend these bindings to anyone that has an interest in extreme balling..
these changed the way i board and make me twice as good as i was.. seriously buy these they make the difference!!!!!
If you like to clear 30 foot gaps, hit the booters and clear 25 foot table tops, these are the bindings for you. They are specially made for doing jumps. The bottom of the bindings are lined with padding (unlike all other companies) that help you make that perfect soft padding. Team Skyback helps make these bindings ultra responsive for poppin 180s, 360s, and 5s. If you live in the terrain park, these are for you.

THESE BINDINGS STOMP!!
These bindings are some of the best out there. They are light and give tons of pop. The only problem I've had is the skyback getting caught up on the lift. But definitely worth the money!
very nice bindings for the price just as others have said. I love the toecap, the snug fit, and awesome response. I ride a Burton T6 and this has been the best pair of bindings on that board. I have tried ride lx, ride tomcat, and burton missions. But the cartel I love the most.
Burton Cartel binding
The toe strap is really awesome. Your boots strap in and out of the bindings with ease. The Cartel's hold your feet tight against the backing of the binding. They come with 4 and 3 hole attachment pieces. You can spend a lot more money on some other products but this binding is really all you need.
these bindings are really good, i love the toecap, they are easy to adjust, they are super comfy and feel really secure.
best bindings I've ridden before.
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE THEM /Great buy

Comfort meets performance

Cartel Snowboard Bindings
These are my second pair of Cartel Bindings and I still think they are super for carving it up. You really can't go wrong choosing Burtons.
Not very happy
After reading the rave reviews about this binding I had to comment. I purchased the Cartels about 1 1/2 years ago. So far I have had two broken high backs, the hardware that secures the high back came off somewhere on the slopes. I think the material and design they used is very poor. I will not be purchasing Burton bindings again.
