Cultivating the most capable Cartel takes years in the game, and after a grip of seasons pushing progression, only one binding achieves this absolute.
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) increases foot roll for less fatigue and easier ollies, while AutoCANT cushioning equals anatomic comfort no matter which model you choose. A hair more powerful than the Malavita, not quite as aggressive as the Diode, the Cartel is the professional’s choice for good reason.

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.
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. Featured on the Diode EST®, Genesis EST, Malavita EST, and Cartel EST.
Rides Exclusively with Burton Boards Featuring The Channel
Experience ultimate flex and feel, plus the ability to customize performance by choosing between various interchangeable BEDs. Get endless stance adjustability, a truer flex from your board, and more cushioning, feel, and control than ever before. Compatible exclusively with Burton boards featuring The Channel.
Single-Component Hi-Back Construction
The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Through material blends we then 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
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.
