For those about to send.
From freshly frosted tree runs to towering jump lines, crush the entire mountain with the dialed-in fit and smooth underfoot feel of the Burton Cartel Re:Flex Snowboard Binding. This medium-flexing binding offers a responsive feel that's ideal for shredding anything on the mountain. So go ahead, mount this bad Johnny to your all-terrain quiver killer and reap the benefits of over a decade of constant refinement.
Dual-component baseplate construction features a softer material underfoot to enhance board feel and flex with a stiffer material along the lateral edges for lightning-quick edge-to-edge response. The canted highback is slightly angled to match your stance, improving control while also reducing calf fatigue. DialFlad allows you to crank up the forward lean angle on your highback for extra support when you're carving up icy pipe walls.
Dual-density EVA in the AutoCant footbed allows your boot to settle into a natural position that aligns your joints naturally to reduce fatigue and improve control, and it has B3 Gel to absorb shock from harsh landings and minimize vibrations for a smoother ride. The Hammockstrap ankle strap has a nylon strip running down the center that gives you a direct connection to your board at all times, meaning your board instantly responds to your every command. Double Take buckles have teeth on both sides to make clicking in faster and smoother, not to mention more secure. All of this adds up to create a ride that runs the entire resort.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Got these bindings few weeks ago and here is my first experience.
1. General impression
It's my first snowboard bindings - all previous I was getting in rental service, so this review will be more useful for guys who only started their snowboarding path.
I like them a lot, cause it's real all-mountain bindings that allows you to ride all over the mountain, park, powder, what ever - you will control your board in any conditions.
Cartels fits better to Burton boots, but they are OK with any boots manufacturer. We've tested them with Burton, DC and nike boots - everything was perfect.
My boots size is 11, but medium bindings were a bit uncomfortable and was too complicated to adjust. You'll better try them or some similar model in your local store before ordering.
Cartels have lots of way to adjust and fit you leg, but it take some time to understand how they work. I took me more than an hour to find the best position for straps. Especially for toe strap.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Folks on the Internets say to try a M size for up to an 11 boot, as the sizing options say as well. Folks suggest a Medium is leaning a bit large and can accommodate a low profile boot. That was not my experience. I could not fit my size 11 boot (Nike) into the heel area. Sent them back and will get a Large.

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.
