I have been riding these bindings since 2009 and found they are the perfect mix between flex and comfort, i ride mountain and backcountry mostly and am very satisfied with what has been produced for the price.
I picked up the the 2009 Burton Cartels last year to pair with my Sierra Crew. Overall they are real good bindings. Offer plenty of adjustments and flexibility. Would recommend to anybody wanting a good binding at a cheap price!
"Great All Around Bindings"
Great all around binding. Very comfortable and durable. Owned them for 3 years and never had any issues.
"Feel so Good"
These are my first pair of bindings that I've owned but the minute I stepped into these, I was in heaven. Compared to the rental bindings, these felt Like I was on a cloud.
once strapped in, my feet aren't going anywhere. they feel great and they give me an amazing amount of control. cartel...what else can you say? they're awesome.
"Love these bindings"
Got these on sale and would have to say they are awesome. Rocking these with my 08 GNU Rider's Choice and been riding it for the past 2 seasons. Still going strong, very durable and straps keep my boots in tight, but not uncomfortable.
I just bought these bindings and rode them for the first time last weekend, so far they are the best bindings I've ever ridden.great performance and I landed my first 360 on them!
"Great all around binding"
I have 2009 Burton Cartels on my '08 Custom. I love the cartels. I am an all mountain rider and they are great for everything. responsive at high speeds. Also great in the park. I don't do too much their, but for what i do, they seem pretty good. The only problem i've had which I've kinda grown use to is that the highback is quite hard to adjust. when i first got them. i had to constantly adjust. They were quite stubborn and uncomfortable but i finally got them to fit right. Great overall binding.
Just got these in the mail and tried them out asap. they felt awesome. i upgraded to these after i bought a cheaper pair that were piss poor. i ride mostly park and they felt awesome and for just down hilling on a groomer they were very responsive to transitioning. i like that they are light weight yet feel quailty made. they are very forgiving with the soft flex so great for beginners. personally thought they were a little to soft for my liking. so my other suggestion would be to look at burton exiles which i have on my other board and love
"Just the way to Start!"
I just started riding and these were suggested to me. I love them... granted I don't know a whole lot, I do know what I like and these are great. They were perfect for me to just start and look gnarly. The adjustable back are a big plus and help get the most response. I will say that the toe caps have trouble with staying put on my boots (which are also burton) but for the most part everything else is all gravy!
"Great all rounder!"
I have not been able to convince myself to replace it although I have come close a few times. Great for the park or just riding around the mountain. Have not had any reliability issues with it. Only fault that I can think of is that sometimes my calves get a bit sore and would maybe want to try it with a lower high back. Great reliability and good control!
I upgraded to these from some older Burton Missions, and these are a big improvement. The straps are much more comfortable, and the adjustability is simpler. They fit my boots better, so there is virtually no slipping once you're locked in. I also got a great deal on them, so that helps.
I run the Cartels on my board and couldn't really want a better binding. The only move I would probably make is to move on to the 2011's to see what other improvements they have made. Love the bindings. Toe cap stays on great and the straps couldn't be anymore comfortable. highly recommended.
"Best All-Around Binding In The Industry"
I've teamed these bindings up with my Burton Love board & they are the best most universal bindings... Ever! Responsive enough to shred big mountain runs while being agile to rip your way through the park! Super comfortable straps, footbed & total fit. No matter the type of riding you do these bindings will completely rock!
i have no complaints about this binding. solid construction that you can feel from the time you open the box to when u actually strap in and ride very adjustable. heel-back is simple, just turn the wing dial thing. Straps are easily adjusted too. the toe-strap also allows you to trap to your toe-boot, or the top side of your boot
"Love the Cartels!"
I now run these after replacing my '06 Burton Missions, and they're a lot better or my riding style. The Missions were a little soft for some of the choppier terrain, and these are a lot more comfortable. I still use the Missions on my park board, but the Cartels are way better for all-mountain, in my opinion. Also, I like the toe cap on the Missions, but the way they're done here (with a hole for your toe, instead of a full molded cap) makes them much smaller on the outside. I was shredding up the toe cap on my Missions from dragging (I have 11.5 boots on a regular width board), but I don't have that problem at all with these.
these bindings kill everything! best bindings ever! they are stiff but not to stiff so they handle the park well. SUPER responsive especially good in the woods, probably saved me a few injuries. they are reallllyyyyy comfortable there are no pressure points. The B3 gel is amazing, it absorbs so much shock, i landed flat at the begining of my first season with them off a 20 foot kicker and was expecting shooting pain in my feet ankles ect. but barley felt anything!!! these things are sick. GET THEM!
my friend bought these bindings last season after he sold me his and when he tried them out we both noticed he got great response whether he was going for some freeriding or doin some tricks at the park. it is midflex so it is pretty much good for both. can hold itself up on some pretty aggressive rides and the durability of this thing is awesome. the burton cartel's is like a one-up from burton custom's. you'll love these bindings as well as the price
Great binding for a great price. I've had these binders for a year already and they're still going strong. They aren't as responsive as co2s that I used to own but they are responsive enough if you're trying to ride all mountain. Paint chips are understandable and sometimes the toe strap slips off. It's not that bad though, couple tightens and it's readyto go
"The upgrade solid binding."
Stepping up from the 2007 Cartel to the 2009, one of the biggest difference is Burton upgraded the Cartel with the P1 binding's highback when they took out the P1. Getting rid of the forward highback that bother most people who does like that old cartel highback. The P1 highback allow Cartel to be responsive as before without losing it's comfortability. And the binding is more versitile after switching to the P1 high back to make it more freestyle than freeride.Another difference is the weight of the binding is lighter than my 2007 cartel. The toe strap is a little different then before. and it seems to hold down my boot better than before. The strap didn't slip and hold firm. Cartel binding has been a well know binding model for burton and it's well respected. The 2009 binding take it up to another level with improvement in weight, support, response and comfort.
"Burton Cartels, not Drug Cartels!"
These are a great pair of bindings! I bought these used for a really good price thinking they were just gonna be whatever bindings, but it was well worth it! They have great and easy adjustability for the straps, no need for a screw driver, so you can make a few changes on the mountain. You do need a screw driver to adjust your highbacks, but its real simple. The few things I did have problems with were the toe strap. You have to put it on the perfect spot on your boot so it clamps down just right, so it takes a lil bit of effort to get them down, but other than that this is a great binding.
I own size Medium and I wear Burton SL7s in 8.5. Fit is good. I love these bindings. For me they are the perfect blend flex. I am wanting nothing when I bomb on these bindings but they are still forgiving enough for freestyle riding. The construction is solid and the straps are super comfy. The only complaint I have with the 2009 model is that I have a hard time keeping the toe cap from not slipping on occasion. I crank it down super tight and then still slips off. I have adjusted it as well so I do not think it is me. This is a minor complaint however. Overall a great binding. If you can pick up a pair at the sale price of 127 do it!
2 year on these 2009 Cartels, very good quality and no disappointments. Ive taking them to Mammoth to cruise throughout the mountain, very responsive. I ride with them at Bear Mountain, great for park. Overall cant go wrong with this set. WELL WELL WELL worth the money.
I've got these bindings mounted on my 2009 Burton Custom ICS snowboard and used them all of last season. These are great bindings and even though they are high back, they allow you to adjust your stance very easily. They have taken quite a bit of beating since I'm a new boarder and spend almost as much time on my butt as I do on my feet ;) As others have mentioned, the toe-cap does tend to slip off if you take a tumble, but otherwise they're great.
A friend of mine owns these and I heard nothing but great things about them. I decided to purchase a used pair recently and without even riding on the yet I could feel exactly what he was talking about. The cushioning is amazing and they look sick. I was on a pair of RIDE bindings before and everytime I strapped up I could feel points all over my foot being pressured by the straps. This is not the case with the Cartels....even when they were tight, I could barely tell they were on. I'm a beginner and I couldn't imagine using any other bindings for the rest of my riding career. Highly recommended!!
