Burton CARTEL EST Snowboard Binding 2018
Standing the test of time takes more than a rugged attitude – at a certain point, you just have to evolve. That’s just what the Burton Cartel binding has done, with the new Hammockstrap™ 2.0, Smooth Glide™ buckles, and years of development in each crank of the ratchet. 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 a smoother feel and easier ollies, while AutoCANT cushioning on both the EST and Re:Flex versions automatically tilts to put you in the most comfortable position possible.
Burton CARTEL EST Snowboard Binding 2018 details and specification
- Dual-Component Baseplate Construction
The material underfoot is softer than the material alongside the lateral edges. This creates a ride that is softer underfoot, yet stiffer edge to edge for a perfect balance of response and board feel.
- EST® Baseplate Construction
By removing the materials from beneath your feet and replacing them with cushioning, we are able 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 flexes dynamically with your leg for increased foot roll, less fatigue, and easier ollies. Featured on the Genesis X EST®, Genesis EST, Malavita EST, and Cartel EST.
- 30% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Spar
Slightly more responsive than the 18% short-glass/nylon composite, yet still plenty playful.
- 45% Short-Glass/Nylon Composite Lower
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.
- NEW Hammockstrap™ 2.0
Everything our team riders love about the Hammockstrap, but paired with Smooth Glide™ buckles for a reduced profile and more comfortable fit. Featured exclusively on the Re:Flex™ and EST® versions of the Cartel. • Stitchless, Minimized Injected Design • Ultra‑Responsive 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine • Ultra‑Light Engineered Padding Remains Soft in Cold Temps
- Flex Slider
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.
TOE STRAP: Gettagrip Capstrap™
Grippy rubber wraps response around the toe of the boot for a locked in fit and pressure-free comfort. • Grip Fit Rubber • 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine • Ultra-Minimized Capstrap™ Construction with True Wrap Toe Window • Conformable as Capstrap or Toe Strap
- Dual-Component Buckles
Polished, aluminum and lightweight polycarbonate barrels give you season after season of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power. Designed and built by us, not some shady supplier.
- Smooth Glide Buckle Technology
Feel how easy buckling in can be with the most reliable buckles in the industry. Available in two versions on our men’s and women’s bindings, choose single-component for all day buckling pleasure; or the upgraded performance of our dual-component design which offers a polycarbonate barrel for improved ratchet tongue life. All buckles feature aluminum levers and steel bases for strength you can trust.
- AutoCANT SensoryBED™ Cushioning System
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.
- B3 Gel
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.
- Features Re-Ground Materials to Reduce Waste
