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 2.0 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. Exclusively available on the Cartel, the second edition of the Hammockstrap is paired with Smooth Glide buckles for a reduced profile and more comfortable fit. All of this adds up to create a ride that runs the entire resort.
