My current gear is a Cobra X, Cartels, and Vans Cirro boots. I'm very happy with it. I wanted a setup that was on the responsive side, without being overly stiff. It's a good match for general all-mountain riding, a little bit of park, and occasional powder days. The Vans boot profile seems to fit Cartels pretty well. The Infuse would be too soft for a heavier rider like me, but if you're lighter I'm sure they'd be a good match.
