Sets a new standard in response and cushioning.

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. 

Designed 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,' the Cartel EST flexes dynamically with your leg, adding lateral roll when you're boosting ollies and tweaking tricks off jumps. Its super-cush Reactstrap and boot-gripping Gettagrip Capstrap keep you nice and comfortable from first chair 'till last call, eliminating pressure points with their 3D shaping.

All the right bends

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Burton EST Cartel binding is pretty much incredible. I especially like the new hinge located by the heel of my boot. It gives my bindings that extra little bit of playfulness when I'm buttering around and just having a good time. I definitely think it has a bit looser of a feel (especially forward and back rock) than the 7 out of 10 that Burton gives them, so if you're really looking for that stiff feeling I would recommend giving these a test before purchasing.

I have them on my Burton Custom Local 154. Boot size 9 with plenty of extra strap for bigger size boots. EST opens up any rideable stance option you could ever want.

It looks and sounds great! Can I use on my "Burton Process Flying V Snowboard - 2014/2015?" Thanks!

This is an EST binding and so it will work on all Burton boards with an EST channel. I'll attach a picture of the EST channel.

It is a great binding.

It is very good binding. I bought for my son. He is very like it. Only a little regret it has more discount now. I bought with 30% off, now it has 40% off.

Unanswered Question

I have a size 11.5 US Burton Fiend boots and was wondering about M or L in the cartels, I see you recommend M for size 11 and was wondering when the cut off is?

Will these bindings mount on the burton process smalls 134cm board?
Otherwise which ones will?

Responded on


Unfortunately these bindings are EST compatible and the Burton Process Smalls board is 3D pattern compatible.

Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!

Would these fit size 7.5 burton snowboard boots.

I've always had Large bindings with a size 11 boot and I just wondered, how would a Medium fit the 11? I got a Custom Support Local Twin 158 and it didn't come in a wide version, making me worried about toe/heel drag with Large bindings.

I just bought the Support Local Cartel best mediums and have size 11 burton boots and they fit fine. The straps aren't even all the way out. A little tight around the heel but nothing too bad

I too have a size 11 boot and had the same dilemma back in the days... I had actually reached out to Burton and did a lot of research online. Size M is actually what Burton reps recommend for a size 11 Burton boot with a footprint reduction technology. The straps aren't maxed out, the boot fits fine and is nicely centered toe to heel.

Stiffer than previous seasons

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This years model has more short-glass than previous years. The result is stiffer base plate. This helps separate the cartel from the mission even more. It is now nicely spaced between the Diode and the Mission. The Est Model is clearly heavier than the re-flex but also seems that much beefer. I really like the flex straps. The keep the ankle strap out of the way. Obviously, the EST makes almost any stance you want possible. I have these on my 159 Flight Attendant.

EST or you're a dinosaur

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Every time I get a new hard gear I'm always amazed at how improved the technology is since my last set up, and these Cartels are no acceptation. This is my first EST binding and I'm in love. The freedom and ease you have in deciding your stance is unmatched. I was riding at a local resort and about 10 inches of snow fell throughout the day. I started the day riding twin tips and gradually stanched back as the powder fell. Never once did I have to take my bindings off, just a quick twist of a screwdriver and I was on my way. I'm a bit of a Burton fan boy so my advice is to pair these puppies with a board burton suggest on their website. I've ridden them on my Custom and my Fish and it feels like a match made in heaven. I’ll continue with more shameless free promotion for Burton when I suggest getting some post 2012 Burton boots. They've got this technology that makes the tip of the boots fit into the EST binding like an f-in glove. Before I rode with EST tech my foot/leg would be constantly sore while I did laps…whether it was my toe straps or my leg dangling off the chair lift it seemed no matter what I would be in some sort of discomfort. EST solved that problem real quick. If your still stuck in the stance dialing puck age, it’s time to move on!
