- Name: 2013 Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings
- Pros: Great response, Highly adjustable,
- Cons: Ratchet broke,
Rode the Cartels for a season and absolutely love them. They are a definite improvement over my old bindings, and I would say are better than most mid-level bindings. The cushioned footbed is great for all day hard riding. The Cartels are a really great all around binding, capable of bombing down the mountain and hitting natural features. I don't hit the park so I can't really tell you how they do there, but they're probably a little too stiff for that. I only gave them 4 stars because my buddy's Cartel lost one of its ratchets (just popped off somewhere on the mountain). I haven't had any issues with them so it might be just one of those things. Would recommend the Cartels to anyone.
