I had got the Cartels last year in a Large, and rode them for a season before finding out my boots were too big and had to switch to a medium. Dogfunk took care of it no questions asked! super stoked, love the bindings, they ride super comfy, good flex, love the skybacks. I haven't had the issue maybe but once about having to put the skyback down when getting on lifts (no problems in Mammoth). Definitely recommend them to anyone ready to step it up.
So far so good :)
I rode with these about 20 times last season and has no issues so far. Comfort is good, buckles go smooth... be careful with the highbacks they can brake easily while getting on/off a chairlift! Friend of mine broke the highback while landing 35 footer, so as it looks this is the weakest link.
what year is the onsale burton cartel for...
what year is the onsale burton cartel for around 150.00 is it 08'?
Definitely these are the 2007/2008 BURTON CARTEL BINDINGS.
i bought these suckers last season, and you definatly have to put the sky back down every time u get off and on the lift. the foam tears a crap and theve been know to break. to be honest, i dont like the carts. there to bulky, feel cheap and i woild defnitly go with rides or romes.
Will the Cartel be compatable w/ 4x4 set...
Will the Cartel be compatable w/ 4x4 set ups
The cartel rides nice but poorly engineered. The toe cap material can't handle crusty snow, tore up first ride. The ratchet placement on the straps allow them to hit and damage the top of the board. The high back is positioned such that there is a step between it and the base which then catches the sole of your boot at the back of your ankle pulling it away. The method to acheive forward lean stresses the material and is showing signs of fatigue. All this in 6 days riding. Not flash at all
While the toe caps are great, you really need the newer generation toe caps b/c the first generation caps don't have that extra rubber grip at the bottow to really hold themselves on when needed. However, there is no newer generation toe cap that matches this binding (that I have found) so you would have to get the black replacement toe cap and if you are going for looks, that might not be so good.
how long does your package take tyo arrive...
how long does your package take tyo arrive on average with the economy shipping?
It take 3-4 days to Colorado. They ship from Salt Lake, UT so consider your location.
These are a really aggresive binding.
These bindings really make you ride hard. No just cruising in them. The amount of forward lean these bindings have really wears your legs down on long runs. They are adjustable, and you can move the flad on the highback, but you are still quite forward when strapped in. Still a great binding. Just a bit too much forward lean for me.
Significant improvement in binding design
I purchased these at the end of the season to replace a pair of 5 year old Mission bindings. I originally used the Missions on a Custom board and moved them over to a Vapor a year ago. Because I changed boots, the Missions no longer fit properly, thus the motivation for the Cartel purchase.
Comfort: These bindings are much more comfortable than the older Missions. They have padded straps and need not be clinched as tight as the older bindings to secure the boot. Note that either because newer Burton boots are bulkier (Burton denies this, but my comparison between 4 year old Sabbath and current Serow's suggests it is the case), I bought a large Cartel binding to replace the medium sized Mission I previously used. For this reason, a prospective buyer should try boots/bindings before purchase.
Wear: I've only had a chance to ride these on about 20 runs at Mt Baker. That is too few to assess their durability.
Performance: I was hesitant to purchase newer and more expensive bindings, since I really couldn't believe that they would make any difference in performance. However, I was wrong. Surprisingly, performance was dramatically improved compared to the older style bindings. Response and control were much better. Lighter materials transmit more "feel". I mostly used them for freeriding, for which they are top rate performers.
Conclusion: An excellent binding for the sale price. Watch the highbacks when you get on the lift. They are thin and appear fragile, making them liable to break if they catch on the chair.
I upgraded my Drake Podiums to the Cartels and I have no second thoughts what-so-ever. Comfortable and adjustable.
I have some Cartel bindings from two years ago and like them so much I bought some new ones. I did not think that Burton could have made them better but they did.
good while they last
my friend had just bought them on his second day of riding on them he hit a jump and on the landing the base plate broke in half. if you like jumps get a binding with a stronger baseplate. i recommend unions they come with lifetime warranty and i have had them for year so far and i love them for everything.
the price was right
the shipping was fast and great
the bindings were....are kick ass, a little stiff and smooth, great all mountains and solid in the little park riding i do...top marks....
As someone fairly new to snowboarding, I thought bindings were all the same. But after using the Cartels, I've realized it makes all the difference! Light, responsive, and best of all, you can't even tell you have any bindings on.
I rode these for a week so far up in banff. Killer, Max control, nothing but Cheers for the Cartel. Must have for any serious rider.
ive been riding for a few years and i gotta say burton is where its at. great response, and comfortable i recommend this to anyone
While these are the most comfortable bindings I have ever used, beware if you are 190 lbs or so. I am 5' 10" 190lbs. These bindings broke after hitting one jump in the park. I broke the base in half from the toe to the heel. Pics here http://picasaweb.google.com/moye.christopher/BrokenCartels
Now, if you are a lighter weight rider, then these will probably work just fine for you. The straps are exceptionally comfortable. The toe Cap strap holds the boot back in the binding nicely with out creating pressure points on the toe. The ankle provides sufficient heel hold and lateral movement also while not making pressure points.
I ended up renting a pair of these from WaveRave in Mammoth, when my hommies bindings didn't work out. Comfy biding!!! The skyback really makes your heal-side turns a piece of cake! I love the toe-cap feature too, at first I wasn't too sure about it, but after riding them I'm convinced it's the way to go. I picked up the moss/fade to go with my green/kaki jacket and pants. WOO! yeah for Cartels!!!
Best binding I've ever ridden...
I've been riding for over 15 years, and this is the best binding I've ever ridden. It locks your foot in tight for super control. The EVA padding is amazing against ice chatter, and they allow all the adjustments to fit any rider. High end features and quality for half the price. Great binding!
