The Cartel from Burton has long been the choice of millions of people worldwide as their go to high response binding. EST versions have The Hinge which allows the rider's foot to rock into features when busting ollies and nollies, boosting amplitude and making the tricks more intuitive. The Cartel is super adjustable and comes with a Zero-Lean HiBack, for those who have enough natural bend, with DialFLAD for those who want to crank it on. The HiBack can also be rotated around the heel cup to ensure that it is always flush with the heel edge of the board regardless of the riders preferred angles; this ensures the energy is transferred directly to the edge of the board rather than across it. Of course the Cartel still comes with all the treats you would expect from Burton, canted footbeds take the pressure off your knees while the B3 Gel in the heel further cushions the ride. Burton are coring out their straps again this season for improved response times, meaning that there is less padding than in previous seasons but remaining really comfortable. Lightweight Reactstrap with Flex Slider and Gettagrip Toecaps improves comfort even further. A tad more powerful than the Malavita but not as full on as the Diode this is a perfect Freeride and Stiffer side All Mountain binding.
