THE PERFECT BALANCE OF PERFORMANCE AND REFINEMENT
For 2020/21 Burton have re-engineered their best selling Cartel to deliver a smoother more progressive feel better suited to the latest generation of snowboards. Moving away from the super stiff 45% glass baseplate and going to a more mellow 30% blend, the new Cartel still delivers exceptional performance across the whole mountain, but in a more rider-friendly way. Match this with the Cartel specific highback and the Hammockstrap 2.0, and you've still got a binding that's going to deliver exceptional performance no matter what or where you ride. However the Cartel isn't just about performance, thanks to the FullBED cushioning with B3 Gel, it's also super comfortable.
BURTON CARTEL TECHNOLOGY
Single Component Baseplate with Re:Flex:
One material throughout the whole baseplate creates a consistent response and feel across all kinds of terrain. With a blend of 30% short-glass/nylon composite, the Cartel delivers a responsive and dynamic ride, but with a smoother and more progressive power delivery. With a minimised, cored baseplate and Living Hinge™ disc, Re:Flex™ allows the board to flex more naturally. This delivers a more natural ride and enables the sidecut to retain its optimum shape throughout the turn.
Single-Component Canted Living Hinge Highback:
The simplicity of a one-piece highback means immediate response. Using advanced materials, Burton is able to manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive. The innovative Canted Living Hinge technology eliminates hardware and weight and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.
The Cartel utilises the team favourite Hammockstrap but in this instance paired with Smooth Glide™ buckles for a reduced profile and more comfortable fit.

Re:Flex FullBED Cushioning System
FullBED cushioning offers full underfoot cushioning that maximises comfort while minimising fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware.
