Best Cartels yet.
Everything bad i had heard about the new Cartel bindings was BS! These things are solid, I had read some reviews about the new highback being cheap feeling and felt they would break easy. They look and feel alot stronger than my older pair (09) cartels. I almost bought the Malavta est bindings, even had them reserved. But as I took a closer look at the Cartels I noticed they have changed. Where the anklestrap screws on the baseplate there used to be a ugly srip of plastic that feels glued on that has started to peel away on my old pair. If you look at the Malavita's, they still have it. The Cartels are now just one solid baseplate. I won't ride anything else but Burton from now on, there warranty is unmatched for sure.
