Jake M.wrote a review of Burton Cartel Re:Flex Snowboard Binding on January 10, 2013
First of all, dogfunk's service and chat support is amazing. Awesome delivery and they've given me a full refund.
I opened the box to check out the bindings on Christmas and was thrilled... they were light, I loved the style, and they seemed like they would be supportive. We headed to the mountain 3 days later to get on the slopes, and 3 runs in I tightened the forward lean one crank (easy). I took another run down the hill and felt a pop, then an intense pressure on the back of my left ankle. When I checked out the bindings at the bottom of the hill, I saw that the entire support rod had snapped out of the binding. I took it to the pro shop and they agreed that there was no way to repair them. I ended up purchasing another set of Burton bindings from the shop so I could get back on the mountain, and have sent these back.
I'm an easy rider (6', 200lbs, goofy) and I stuck to a few blues and a black before it gave out. Wasn't going through trees, off of jumps, or riding any rails.
Pros: Style, light weight
Cons: weak, probably not the strongest design
