^^^ QFT. I'm riding this year's CO2 and I have to admit, although the edge to edge transfer, forward lean, straps, mesh highback, and cushioned base plates are all equally mind blowing, the price is brutal. If you have the money to spend and can find a set of last year's CO2 EST, do it. But you'll have no regrets with the Cartels, they are an amazing binding that performs all over the mountain for a decent price.
