    Pro-caliber performance.

    Trusted by pros and Joes alike, the legendary Burton Cartel EST Snowboard Binding delivers proven performance on everything from high-speed heli runs and slopestyle courses to urban handrails and wide-open groomers. Perfected over many years, it delivers ramped-up response, fine-tuned flex, and ample support for those who seek to send it.

    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. Living Hinge eliminates hardware and weight, and it allows you to adjust forward lean and highback rotation independently so you can get a truly custom setup. 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.

    Freaking Amazing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Disclaimer: I have these in the non EST version but they are the same binding just with a different mounting plate. For comparison I also have some Arbor Hemlocks and 15' Union Forces. These Cartels have great response from toe to heel but still allow you to butter and press with ease. Compared to the Unions these feel more locked in and cushion landings better. The heel strap is a HUGE step up in comfort compared to any binding I've tried on. Also the canted highbacks position them right where your calves are when strapped in which is super cool. I might just have to get another pair to replace my Unions for my all mountain board.

    Major Upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been riding the Burton Freestyle for the past year. This season, I upgraded to the Cartel ESTs. I immediately noticed a difference on my first run with the Cartels. They provide great control and response, in addition to great pop. I have ridden these in the park and on some pretty tough, powdery runs. I highly recommend these.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Burton Cartels are some of the most preferred bindings from the line. They have been around for years and have a legacy behind them. They are a medium-stiff flex (about a 7/10) and are for a rider that might be a bit more Freeride focused or that just prefers a stiffer binding. The hammock strap is the best in the business, is super comfortable, and reduces pressure points. They also have a "hinge" on the ankle strap that keeps it out of the way and makes it super easy to strap in. All in all, definitely an awesome binding that will last you years to come.

    ***Remember: EST is only compatible with the Burton Channel System!***

    Didn't hold up to hard riding

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I absolutely loved the burton Cartels but after 2 years of riding the flex slider has started to crack and is about to break off. I wish I could say these bindings were worth the investment but they are not durable enough for me.

    Hey Neil,

    I'm sorry to hear about the flex slider. I've put mine through hell and back and haven't run into this issue. Contact Burton, they have one of the best warranties I've ever dealt with. They will get you a new strap to you asap, usually within 48 hours. They will take great care of you!

    Burton's All-Mountain Binding

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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.

    Unanswered Question

    Hey there!

    Just a sizing query about these bindings.

    I own a pair of the DC mutiny bindings in size US 11. They (supposedly) have a technology which reduces the footprint of the binding to a size 9 US. According to the sizing chart of these bindings, the medium is suitable for a size 8-11, and a large is suitable for a size 10, considering the full size and reduced footprint of these boots, which size binding should I get?

    Thanks! :)
