Burton website is the closest to what they truly look like but still does no justice. These boots are awesome, the leather that there made of is EXTREMELY NICE! Not sure what kind it is but its pimp(might be nubuck). These boots are good all around from peak to park. More of a park boot though, they are pretty soft but hold up well when hauling ass. I'm glad I bought them but I still like my dc boots better.
Well I was able to go to Wolf Creek Colorado for a week in march on a '10 Burton Custom with the ICS system and I could not of been happier with my set up. I sold alot of my old gear and bought new boots, board and bindings. I had read a few reviews saying that it took some time getting used to the feeling of the ICS system but it didn't seem to be a prob for me at all. It's not that much of a switch, any real boarder out there shouldn't either. These bindings feel amazing, best i'v ever rode for sure. The main thing I noticed with this set up is how light it is. My Burton Twin thats 2 cin. shorter with C60 bindings wieghts alot more. It was perfect for Wolf Creek, there is alot of hiking you have to do there. It dumped the whole time I was there so I got in four good epic pow days and having a lighter board really paid off. Thanks Dogfunk!
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.
