Raising the bar, again.
Stuffed to the gills with top-notch tech, the Burton Cartel EST Snowboard Binding remains a perennial favorite of freestyle and all-mountain riders across the globe, thanks to its go-anywhere capability, unlimited stance options, and dynamically flexing baseplate design. The binding's Canted Living Hinge, Zero-Lean Hi Back offers a progressive park stance right out of the box, allowing riders to rock zero forward lean for jibbing and destroying freestyle features. Of course, this binding offers the ability to dial-in their forward lean with its DialFlad adjustment, should you want to lap the pipe or carve down the mountain at scary-fast speeds.
Built around Burton's Channel mounting system, the Cartel EST only works with Channel boards, allowing you to fine tune your stance with nearly unlimited options, ensuring you find a proper stance width, but also allowing you to set-back your bindings with minimal hassle, should powder dump from the heavens. Its Dual-Component EST baseplate is softer on the medial (instep) side than the lateral (outer) side, allowing for natural canting. Additionally, the binding's baseplate padding features B3 gel cushioning to absorb big hits from jumps and flat landings. Utilizing Burton's The Hinge technology, the Cartel EST flexes dynamically with your leg, adding lateral roll when you're boosting ollies and tweaking tricks off jumps. The super-cush Reactstrap and boot-gripping Gettagrip Capstrap keep you nice and comfortable from first chair 'til last call, eliminating pressure points with their 3D shaping.

If you've got any Burton, Cartel bindings, snowboard set up or any other gear questions, hit me up. Best way to contact me would be to email (please include the best phone number to call you at).
I've used these in the Re:Flex and EST and put these on the lower end of the mid-stiff spectrum in regards to flex. The big thing about this years Cartels are the hammock straps and cap strap. The previous model had a bulkier ankle strap that was nice, but not as nice as the updated hammock.
I've rocked these on the Landlord for powder days and the Custom for all-mountain cruising along with a few other decks. The handling is there for all conditions if you're after a mid-stiff binding.
If you've got questions about compatibility or sizing, drop me an email and I'll see how I can help.
