"Undiluted utilitarianism.There’s a reason more pros and shop kids choose the Cartel™. Simply put, it’s got everything you could ask for—smoke-weight, diesel strength, and maxed out comfort in a shred-everything package. The time-tested feel and power of the anatomically accurate baseplate and hi-back is unmatched in the industry. FullBED cushioning smoothes out “shocking” landings, while the NEW Gettagrip Capstrap™ results in instantaneous edge-control and all-day comfort."

"Somehow Burton improved an Already great binding." 10/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (11) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Great Toe strap, Comfortable high back, Responsive
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I got these 2011 bindings at a sample sale last year in Denver and rode them the last part of the 2010. This is a different cartel with numerous improvements from years past. The 2011 cartel uses the old P1 highback which is EXTREMELY comfortable and at the same time -- very responsive. Burton also managed to improve the toe cap --it's cored out and has a knobby rubber that grips your boot. Almost impossible to slip. Straps are comfortable and cush. Binding is very light. Response is mid stiff-- stiffer than my Forces, but softer than CO2. I've owned the first cartels, the 2009 and 2010 -- this is EASILY the best of the bunch. Pretty much the PERFECT all mountain bindings.

I agree, you can't go wrong with them. I've had 2 pairs and excited to get my third. I do have to say that the high back is my preference

"Cartel" 1/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Stiff & Soft, Forgiving, Sturdy
  • Cons:  What? ,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I didn't like the '09 Cartels (lean forward, you bastard!), but this took some decent lean forward!(see what I did there?) The Cartel's flex felt very good - medium stiff-ish. It was pretty comfortable. I took on medium-sized kickers and made sketchy landings, but the Cartel stayed forgiving enough, but stiff enough to take the hard hit, so I wasn't afraid to put it through some crazy bails. Its flex is stiff enough for bombing down black slopes, and I had a blast. I consider the Cartels one of my favorite bindings, besides the Union Forces.

"Good bindings" 2/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  style, good allrounder, good manufacturing
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I've been riding these bindings for the past two years, They are a perfect allrounder for every terrain, with a nice style - they only con's I find is that the straps need to be straped really hard in order to keep the boot in a steady position leading to some pain in the feet.

"Great for a Burton binding" 12/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (4) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Well built / quality ,
  • Cons:  Heavy / bulky,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Ive ridden them prolly on 10 different occasions and they performed great. Just remember: Burton is NOT the best when it comes to bindings. These are good bindings but there are better things out there if your picky. Union and Rome are also very recommended. The Cartels were a very good buy and I see them lasting me a couple seasons. I do some park with some normal all mountain riding but not very much icy snow, they give me lots of control. The high-back is also a huge plus. Crank em forward and you get some gnarly control on the hard packed/ice. The ankle strap is nice and comfy with no pressure points and the toe strap is good as well. Only downside for me, is that when I think they are tight, they end up loosening up a lot to where the toe strap comes off my toe. Lil annoying but there are worse things that could be wrong. If I were to rate these between 1 and 10.....Id give em an 8. Btw, if you dont use a Burton board, the 4 holed plate that comes with it is NOT padded like the 3 holed plate.

Comments & Questions



DangerMoose
On the 2010 Cartel, the 4-holed plate has the full bed cushioning. Surprised to hear that may've changed on the 2011 model.

How does this compared to Rome 390?

The_Guchi
I actually like the Rome S90 more than the cartel i think... I havent tried the current model of 390 or 390 boss but I bet they are sweet!

"ultra light...but kinda cheap" 5/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  ultra light, high-end ratchets, dampening
  • Cons:  plastic-y look and feel, poor disk cover design, high price
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I paid only $12 shipping after earning these via the community member points program. After owning rome targas, there's no way I would have paid $200 for these cartels. First impression was the cheap, plasticy/toy-like feel...they're also extremely light(a good thing). The box came with a bunch of different disks and disk screws, but no spare straps or anything else (targas include a bunch of extras). The instruction pamphlet has only drawings. After riding them, I no longer had the impression the quality was cheap (but didn't feel they were any better than the targas I rode previously). Love the fact the ratchets have no protruding parts on the release tabs (less likely to prematurely release) and they weigh about 10 oz less than targas...but, other than that, targas are an overall much higher quality binding. Cartels have overall superior dampening than targas, but the toe ramps are shorter and I really hate having to bend the foot pad over to access the disks...doing that is gonna break it within one season, for sure (they could have put a little hinge there or just made it removable...like targas)

"very comfortable" 3/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  comfortable, toe cap strap, lots of adjustments
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I am using these bindings with the sierra reverse crew board and it is a very comfortable binding. Considering I have co2 with my custom x and going to these cartels, I have no complaints. The bindings have a nice toe strap that I prefer over the over toe straps. The ankle strap is very comfortable and the ratchets are very smooth. This would be my choice even for my custom x if I were to go back and choose a binding again, the EST version of course. The one downfall is if you don't get a burton board and use the EST setup, it just takes a little longer to adjust compared to normal boards.

"The benchmark binding" 3/13/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Versatility, Smooth action, take it anywhere
  • Cons:  Haters gonna hate, (on Burton),
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   So here's the deal, this is the benchmark that all other bindings are compared to, no other binding is as versatile, comfy, and feature such ease of use as the Cartels. The straps are extremely comfy, and offer good support. The ratchets (buckles) are the smoothest gliding, easiest, most jam free in the industry. The base plate offers plenty of flex for park, but offers responsive ride for the big lines. Here's where the 2011's fall short, the highback. the previous generation had a great, responsive highback, but kept the flex soft enough that it was valuable in the park, this year, they'v been stiffened up a bit. personally i find this a minus, and feel many other riders would as well due to the softness aiding more beginner, intermediate riders. in my humble opinion, wait, and buy the 2012's same binding, new highback, huge improvement.

"Great Reponsive Bindings" 3/5/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Very Responsive, Comfortable, Look Nice
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I got to use these for a day on my buddies board. I got to use them all mountain and a little in the park. The skyback on these were great compared to what were on my current missions. The overall feedback was much nicer than the missions also, making it a little easier for me to go quicker down steep hills and also making it easier to stomp some larger kickers and table tops. I would recommend these bindings to anyone that is looking to progress in the park or just overall snowboarding.

"Everybody recommended these and now I know why" 2/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  adjustability, soft cushioning, solid toe-cap
  • Cons:  bulky, weak hi-back foam, wet
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   These are the second pair of bindings I've ever owned and they blow my old ones out of the water. Now I know why everybody and their momma recommend them. Cartels are awesome bindings that blow away my 10 year-old Gnu aluminum bindings. I prefer a softer flex and the Cartels allow me to tighten my boots and binding straps while still providing enough flexibility for my taste. The Cartels actually weigh about the same as my old aluminum ones, probably due to the added cushioning. The toe-caps work great in keeping my boot solidly in place. The adjustable foot pedal is a must for riders with bigger feet (I wear size 11). I've ridden my Cartels 5 times this season and I'm very satisfied overall. The FullBED foot cushioning feels softer on landings but my biggest complaint about these bindings is that water gets trapped underneath the FullBED. I worry that all that moisture will eventually cause the metal screws and board holes to rust. I don't want to hassle with removing the bindings after every session to let them dry. Another drawback is the bulky hi-back and weak foam on them. I ate it while getting off the lift when there wasn't enough clearance between the snow and bottom of the chair lift. Now I fold it down before catching the lift. The hi-back foam on my back foot is already getting chewed up from all the strapping in and out.

"Comfy but fragile" 1/3/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable,
  • Cons:  Fragile,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   These bindings lasted me a season and broke towards the end of the season. I'm not a heavy park rider or cliff jumper, but I do try to ride hard. Anyways, they were great while they lasted but for $200+, I wish I got a couple of more seasons out of them.
