The Burton Cartel X Snowboard Bindings are a stiffer binding meant for expert riders who want one binding to tackle all of their needs whether it's railing hard carves on groomers or sending it off massive jumps in the park. These bindings mount on any snowboard mounting system unlike their EST counterparts.

Key Features:

  • Re:Flex Binding System - Burton's Re:Flex system offers more flex, cushion, and feel than industry standard disc bindings.
  • Medium/Stiff Flex - This binding flex is good for charging hard and fast while not being too stiff.
  • Single Component Highback - These highbacks are made of one solid piece of material, which provides more response.
  • Heel Hammock - A tough rubbery material wraps around the heel of riders boots allowing for extra response even if the straps are ridden a little looser for comfort.
  • Hammockstrap 2.0 - Simply designed ankle strap that cradles riders boots for a truly secure fit, the new version is paired with Burton's Smooth Glide buckles and a thinner profile for even more comfort.

I’ve been using the Cartel X for years. They haven’t changed much, but that’s because they don’t need to. The Cartel X is a binding I feel good about putting on pretty much any board, from park to powder to freeride. I love how it feels. I love how it functions. To me, it’s one of the best bindings available... Read more

As advertised, great under foot

Originally posted at burton.com on Apr 21, 2024
I upgraded to this binding from my 2016 Mission bindings and the build quality and weight were striking. Great feel under foot, high performance, and the binding made my foot feel really locked in, even better than my friends Union Falcor bindings which I was surprised by. I think the Ankle strap was one of the biggest upgrades from the older style of binding, and made my boot feel more supportive of my ankle than the older style leather hybrid strap. When your form is good, these make you setup feel one step closer to ‘thought controlled’. Felt great in deeper snow, and didnt let me down while doing spins and grabs off of transitions.

These are my first pair of traditional bindings. I rode rear entry bindings before & I had constant foot pain. These bindings are so comfortable. I ride a Lib tech Skunk Ape & have a 13 boot. I adjusted the high backs and after 3 days at CB my feet feel amazing.

Nate was super knowledgeable & friendly!
5 /5
Nothing but great things to say about Nate! He was SO responsive and offered many suggestion in my price point. He tailored my ski equipment based on my body needs. He knew things I’ve never even thought about, like my high arches and how that would impact boot selection. We had a blast picking out my skis and he was so patient as I went back and forth many times. I recommend everyone work with Nate!

Alex was absolutely amazing with helping my find the right setup. When I was ready to purchase everything was sold out unfortunately!

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Spencer helped me throughout the whole process of getting my perfect setup. Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!
