The Cartels have knocked it out of the park for well over a decade, and few people would argue that they're anything but bona fide hall of famers. They're not content to kick back and cruise into retirement with their feet propped up on the book of snowboarding lore, though. The all new Burton Cartel X Snowboard Bindings slap a new highback on an old favorite for a stiffer, more precise flex, improved response, and more power than you thought possible. Amazingly, there's never been a better time to snag a pair of Cartels, and these one's have the X factor you're looking for.
Medium-Stiff Flex – Helps with quick, technical maneuvers, even at high speeds. Great for all-mountain carving, powerful freeriding and charging through the terrain park.
Re:Flex™ Binding System – Offers more flex, feel, and cushioning than traditional disc bindings, in a package that's universally compatible with all current mounting systems, including 4x4, 3D® (via Burton Rider Service), and the Channel®. The minimized, cored base-plate with Living Hinge™ disc reduces the weight and footprint of the binding, while also bending freely for a more natural flex.
Single Component 45% Short-Glass / Nylon Composite Baseplate – One material throughout creates consistent response and feel for all‑terrain domination. Carbon performance without killing your credit card.
Single Component Construction – The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Using Burton's book of material secrets, they can manipulate the overall flex profile -- from buttery to responsive.
Hammockstrap™ 2.0 – Everything Burton's team riders love about the Hammockstrap, but paired with Smooth Glide™ buckles for a reduced profile and more comfortable fit.
Smooth Glide™ Buckles – Lightweight aluminum and polycarbonate levers give you season after season of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power.
