I know they have a legit warranty problem, just asking if others have had any problems from THEIR early release stuff. Thanks for the help tho...
Early release is just a marketing label. Effectively these are like any other Burton product, so you will get the exact same warranty and customer service.
That said, the weight difference between the 2013 and 2014 Cartels is insignificant and I personally prefer the asym strap on the Restricted Cartels, but that is a different question.
