Si wrote a review of Burton Cartel Snowboard Binding on June 7, 2009
Everyone on this site gets some bindings or boards and just says they're amazing bla bla bla. I had some 2008 Solomon spx pro's or what ever they were called but got them stolan in march this year. I brought the Cartels (pink) and i'll try and compare them as good as i can:
The solomons were a little more flexible and moved real good. However toe straps after a year or so were starting to become loose and whatever solomon say about "easy adjust" they are not!!!! but all in all really flexy and really responsive!!! great beginner binding!
The Cartels little less manovability, But way more cushioning and more rugged. 10x better toe strap really huggs ur toe right in. U'll either love or hate the high back it's great for more aggresive stanced riders such as myself. You do get 4 screw bases but i havn't tried it yet.
All in all not much in it the solomons were deffo a little more flexi but the cartels are more comfy better fit and way more rugged.
