As a "warning" the Cartel isnt what it has been the last few years. I feel like it's back to being the freestyle dominator it used to be. Where the last few years its been more all mountain almost freeride feeling. Really awesome now though. For me it's the best Carte I've been in.
For a killer deal look at the K2 Formula. Everything you want in a light responsive package. Still the team favorite. For a bit of a skatey feel the new Salomon Holograms are fantastick and what I'll be riding this year along with Flow NX2 SE's.
So of your original List, Cartels.
Go ahead, drink that kool-aid.
