BURTON CARTEL EST BINDING – BLACK MATTE
The Burton Cartel EST Binding has stood the test of time and established itself as one of the worlds highest performing all mountain freestyle bindings. Being the choice of pro riders and snowboard enthusiasts worldwide, the Cartel EST delivers proven, consistent performance from park to powder, green runs to the olympics, and everywhere in between. Staying at the top isn’t easy, so the Cartel EST has received some updates in the past couple of years, like updating the ankle strap for even lighter and more responsive comfort, and using reground materials to reduce its environmental footprint, while still keeping that Cartel EST feel and performance that has made it one of the most popular bindings here at Pacific Prizm Boardstore!
Binding Type: All Mountain Freestyle
Flex (1 – Soft / 10 – Stiff): 7/10 (Medium – Stiff)
Board Compatibility: This EST binding is only compatible with Burton boards featuring the M6 Channel system.
The Cartel EST baseplate features a dual-component construction, comprised of a 30% short-glass/nylon composite spar and a 45% short-glass/nylon composite lower. This gives you a responsive yet playful upper with a more lightweight and responsive lower. This EST-specific baseplate removes the material under your foot and replaces it with cushioning, reducing the weight of the binding, increasing board feel, and maintaining the natural flex of the board.
Specific to Burton EST models, The Hinge puts flex points on the sides of your bindings, which allows the board to flex more naturally and reduces stress and fatigue on your legs.
The Cartel Highback consists of a single piece, resulting in instant response. This zero-lean canted design follows the contours of your legs to maximise control and comfort, and the Living Hinge built into the highback provides independent forward lean and highback rotation options while still reducing weight and materials, and works in conjunction with the Burton DialFLAD so you can easily dial in your desired forward lean.
Smooth Glide Ratchets
Burtons Dual Component Smooth Glide Ratchets offer reliable and durable performance for hassle free ratcheting all season long. Featuring quality materials and a durable design, these ratchets are super smooth and easy to use, and are made to last.
The new Hammockstrap 2.0 now features a lower profile and a reduced weight for a more comfortable fit. The pre curved design fits smoothly around your boot and won’t be giving you any pressure points.
The Burton Flex Slider gets your ankle strap out of the way, so gone are the days of battling with your ankle strap when you’re trying to get your boot into your binding. These flex points are specially designed to be super strong as well, so they are just as durable despite the constant flexing.
The Burton Gettagrip Capstrap is one of the best toe straps on the market, with a super grippy interior that holds onto your boot in freezing temperatures, and a design that hugs the contours of most boots.
AutoCANT Sensorybed Cushioning System
This dual-density EVA footbed works to settle your boot into a naturally comfortable position, regardless of your stance width and angles, which helps to align your joints and gives you less fatigue and a more comfortable ride.
B3 Gel under your heel provides ultimate dampening for hard landings and rough snow, and is formulated to withstand repeated impacts and cold temperatures without any reduction in performance.
