This binding has been sending it for years!
The Burton Cartel men's binding is one of those bindings that pushes binding progression to push rider progression. It has been ridden by pros for such a long time because it can take on the whole mountain with the response advanced riders are looking for. Use it to launch of a backcountry booter, take high-speed park laps, and carve up some fresh groomers, the Cartel snowboard binding will not disappoint.
The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. This ergonomic Canted Hi-Back design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort.
Living Hinge™ technology eliminates hardware and weight and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently. 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. 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 adjustability, DialFLAD™ systems give you twice the options of the traditional FLAD.
The material underfoot is softer than the material alongside the lateral edges. This Dual-Component Baseplate Construction creates a ride that is softer underfoot, yet stiffer edge to edge for a perfect balance of response and board feel. (30% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Spar and 45% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Lower)
By removing the materials from beneath your feet and replacing them with cushioning, it is possible to drastically reduce weight and explore entirely new designs. With EST®, the possibilities for flex and feel are infinite, and so are the stance options. Get it all without ever sacrificing the edge-to-edge power you know and trust.
The Hinge: This Burton-exclusive technology utilizes a dual-component baseplate construction that flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies.The AutoCANT SensoryBED™ Cushioning System with Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control. Additional B3 Gel, the same cushioning found in high-end boots, adds unstoppable impact protection.
The new pad and spine shape of the Hammockstrap™ wraps the boot in response. Flip the straps for increased freedom, or run stock for power and support. The new minimalist design of the Super Grip Capstrap 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. A 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 the science of forced molecular alignment, the Flex Slider is also stronger, making it worthy of Burtons LIFETIME WARRANTY.
Be the first to drop in with the rapid ratcheting of Burton’s Double Take Buckles. Helical teeth and a complete rethink of the entire package results in "Insta-Click" immediate engagement, faster uptake, and fewer cranks to tightness. The result: vastly improved strength, speed, and ease-of-use.
