I rode Burton Cartels until December this year.
These bindings have eliminated the issues with pain and discomfort that plagued me with the Cartels.
They provide far more response and control as well. I really feel that these bindings have helped my riding to progress.
The step in system took a few days to get used to, and you need to be sure that your boots heel will fit into them. Now, I just laugh at everyone else sitting on the snow trying to put their bindings on.
I cannot recommend these bindings enough.
