Cultivating the most capable Burton Cartel binding takes years in the game, and after a grip of seasons pushing progression, this edition achieves this absolute. Available in two versions, choose the across-the-board compatibility of Re:Flex™ or the ultimate flex and feel of EST® and experience a new era in pro-caliber control. The Hinge (on the EST® version only) activates medial and lateral flex for reduced fatigue, a smoother feel, and easier ollies, while AutoCANT cushioning on both the EST and Re:Flex versions equals anatomic comfort. The rapid ratcheting of Double Take Buckles on an upgraded strap package will have you dropping in first. With a moderate flex that doesn’t sacrifice drive, the Cartel is the pro’s choice for mid-range flex and all-terrain versatility.
MOUNTING SYSTEM: EST
SINGLE-COMPONENT BASEPLATE CONSTRUCTION
One material throughout creates consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination.
RE:FLEX™ BASEPLATE CONSTRUCTION
With a minimized, cored baseplate and Living Hinge™ disc, Re:Flex™ dramatically improves board flex and feel, and reduces weight.
This Burton-exclusive technology flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies.
45% SHORT-GLASS/NYLON COMPOSITE
Carbon performance without killing your credit card.
SINGLE-COMPONENT HI-BACK CONSTRUCTION
The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Using our book of material secrets, we can manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive.
LIVING HINGE™ HI-BACK
This exclusive technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.
ZERO FORWARD LEAN HI-BACK
Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the Zero Forward Lean design on select hi-backs. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls
CANTED HI-BACK DESIGN
Your legs don’t go straight up, and neither should your hi-backs. This ergonomic design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort.
The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, our MicroFLAD™ systems give you twice the options of our traditional FLAD.
Reactstrap roots in a stitch-less construction for ultra-response with minimal materials. The addition of a nylon cross spine equals a more direct connection with the board.
Our Flex Slider makes strapping in a breeze with a strategically stretched hinging zone that allows the heel strap to flex and fall fully open. Thanks to science of forced molecular alignment, the Flex Slider is also stronger, making it worthy of our LIFETIME WARRANTY.
This minimalist design merges two materials into one technologically advanced toe strap. A firmer material in the spine provides a supportive and lightweight skeleton, while a softer over-molded material improves boot wrap and comfort.
DOUBLE TAKE BUCKLES FEATURING INSTA-CLICK
Be the first to drop in with the rapid ratcheting of Burton’s Double Take Buckles. Helical teeth and "Insta-Click" engagement combine for increased torque per crank, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use.
RE:FLEX FULLBED CUSHIONING SYSTEM
FullBED cushioning offers full underfoot cushioning that maximizes comfort while minimizing fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware.
The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for ultimate dampening that’s formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.
