    Posted: Jan/30/2012 at 6:14pm
I have a burton vapor 09/10 the the channel lock system with triad bindings 09/10 on them. The bindings are hurting really bad and need a replacement. What do u think the best EST binding i could put on them? I was thinking some burton bindings from the 10/11 season. keep the price low?

Good point the cartels are the cheapest i'd put on that board. I'd probably put diodes on it those blue ones look sick....

what exactly is hurting?  what issues are you having?  don't be so quick to blame your bindings.. your boots are the first and most important/strongest connection to everything else.

This! Are you sure it might not be your boots that are hurting?
Or maybe have you taken the time to properly setup your bindings?
Or if properly adjusted, have you played around with stance and angle settings?

what exactly is hurting? how do you know it is the bindings?

Totally agree.  I've got a couple pairs of expensive boots and rather low end Burton bindings on my primary board and I've never had issues.

I might be wrong but I think by "hurting" he means they are old and need to be replaced.

I have Burton C60's (Non-EST) and they are the best binding I've ever had. They are pricey but I've had them for 3 years now with about 30 days a year on them and they've held up great. I've also had a pair of Cartels and CO2's and the C60's are much better. Plus my knees use to hurt at the end of a day of riding but since I've got the C60's it's really helped.

the Burton ICS (channel) need's specific bindings. but most boards have a normal 4x4 setup and any binding will fit them. ( on a side not lots of company's make conversion disks so there bindings work on ICS)

No the est bindings go with the burton channel. Other bindings use the disc

Thanks for the advice guys, I like all the suggestions. I think I'm looking for more mid bindings and the Malavitas sound pretty good. By the way, with the Infidal, what exactly is the Winged Highback? Also, I know i said I want it to be cheap but I definitely will pay a little more for quality. I just don't want to buy brand new 2012 bindings that have no % off. 

P.S. Yea the bindings are hurting like some of the parts are really worn and are part of the binding snapped off.

You can use many bindings on the channel now.  It's only EST bindings that are exclusive to the channel, not the other way around.  To me it comes off as if that is being said above, and if that is the case that is just plain ignorance and flat out wrong.

I have almost all new gear: gloves, pants, jacket, goggles, boots ... what is more important to get now since they are both old: bindings or board?

I say that you go the mission EST bindings. They are good bindings and they aren't as expensive as the cartels.

I've been riding cartels for 3 seasons now.
Definitely the best I've ridden so far. Just my opinion.

I love my cartels, but if I had a vapor I'd want a stiffer binding. Maybe the C60's or Co2?
Shop smart... Shop S-Mart.
