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 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.

- Q & A
Toe strap keeps slipping.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I made several adjustments to the toe strap, but they keep slipping up on me. I even had the guy in the High Performance center adjust them for me, but the toe strap kept slipping on me. I am going to try one more trip, but if I can't get the toe strap dialed, I'm sending them back.
Got these for my husband, and here's what he had to say:
It's been a decade since I've used Burton bindings (previously had the Missions) and while they were nice before, they are incredible now. The hammock straps and even the toe straps are new to me. The Cartels were a perfect fit for my riding (mostly freeride) and I got them in Primed white/black which looks great. They hug your boot and I can't wait to get on the snow. The reflex technology definitely add some softness to the base as well.
Cartels - One and Only
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
There is only one Burton model that you see the most of, Cartels. I learned on a board with Cartels, then got these to ride with my first setup, and have not rode on others binding since. Each year they get better with how locked in you feel, and how quick they lock in. They do not freeze up, and the Reflex is compatible with other boards too. Feels very sturdy, and very controlled riding, high back support also a big plus, and the tope straps give more controlled feel too.
Don't mess with the Cartels.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
You've definitely heard of them - the Burton Cartel. If you haven't, just know that the Burton Cartels have been on the front page of gear recommendation catalogs for years. With a medium flex, these have been proven by tons of pros to tackle anything you throw at them. With Burton's notorious hammock straps, they are only getting better, and really lock you in without any pressure points. If you want something that's got your back, you might need to join the Cartel.
