FREESTYLE POWERHOUSE FOR ALL-TERRAIN CHARGERS
With the regular Cartel becoming softer and more rider-friendly, Burton has now introduced the Cartel X for those riders who still want that lightning-fast response that you only get from the 45% glass base plate. The Cartel X is designed primarily with the more aggressive freestyle rider in mind. However, this stunning binding is equally at home when charging around the mountain as it is hooking off massive booters. Heading up the Cartel X's powerful construction is the 45% glass/nylon Re:Flex baseplate, stiffer than the standard Cartel's usual 30% blend, it ensures that even the smallest inputs get transferred directly to the board. Match this with the Cartel specific highback and the Hammockstrap 2.0, and you've got all the ingredients in place to deliver a truly stunning ride. However the Cartel isn't just about performance, thank's 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 45% short-glass/nylon composite, the Cartel a responsive and dynamic ride. With a minimized, 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.
- Stitchless, Minimized Injected Design
- Ultra‑Responsive 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine

Re:Flex AutoCANT FullBED Cushioning System with B3G Gel:
FullBED cushioning offers full underfoot cushioning that maximizes comfort while minimizing fatigue. Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control. The same B3 Impact resistant Gel cushioning found in Burton's high-end boots is also used in pockets integrated into the cushion pad to deliver the ultimate underfoot dampening. This unique material is formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.
