Burton Cartel Conventional Review

Burton Cartel


Description
The all-new Burton Cartel snowboard binding is today’s standard in freestyle capability. Freighted with options, the Cartel cashes in on the tough new short-fiber, glass-reinforced nylon baseplate for a perfect blend of response and stability when dealing ruthless blows to uncooperative kickers.

Summary:
The Burton Cartel Bindings have been the most reliable bindings I have used. I ride 5+ times a week and the bindings took 2 good winters of riding before I ran into little breaks. The plastic base plate makes it secure and grips tightly all the time (unlike metal base plates which tend to strip eventually) and the adjustable highbacks made switching from park to backcountry great but both my toestraps breaking while riding in the second year is the only reason I rate this product 4/5.

Summary:
the best deal in a burton binding. the team skyback, superstrap, and capstrap are all included. also, the short-glass fiber/nylon baseplate is the most versatile in the line. stiff enough for freeriding, but not too stiff for freestyling.

excellent binding. excellent price.

Summary:
Picked these up for the 05/06 season and have had about 10-12 full days on them.

First off, they are very well constructed and look great. The straps are comfortable and the buckets ratchet and release smoothly and easily. No issues getting in/out of these quickly.

Super adjustable, as mentioned in earlier reviews but worth noting again. Binding adjustments can be a big mystery; Burton doesn't REALLY help on that beyond some basic info on their site, so I'm still trying to figure it all out. But for those that know how to tweak, these fit the bill.

While weight might be a factor for some, IMHO, I figure after I strapping my 170+ lbs. to the board, a few extra ounces binding weight won't make a whole lotta difference, but if it helps, yes they are light.

I mostly freeride but with a lot of time spent riding switch, working on tricks, and hitting a fair amount of air, so all in all, a good workout for these bindings and I haven't found anything to disappoint.

Last bindings I rode were Burton Missions which I liked as well. From my perspective, the biggest difference I see from my older missions is the higher high backs, better buckles/straps, and an overall slicker appearance. I'm sure there are material/construction differences too but can't say I noticed a big difference in the ride but that’s just me.

All in all, a good binding. Certainly worth looking at.

Customer Service:
No need to speak with CS and hopefully will never have to.
