14/15 Burton Mission Review
Got a pair of Burton Mission in the blue support local color way and this is what I had to say on them: PS I'll be comparing it's characteristics to that of the Cartel
Response: Better than the 14/15 Cartel. I brought both up with me to the mountain. The mission high back is 100% stiffer, but not by too much, but it is definitely noticeable. I liked the feel from the mission. Just a note the forward lean was dialed in the same on both.
Comfort: Honestly the Cartel had better comfort, and the auto cant tech on the cartel was barely noticeable, but it definitely felt a tad bit thicker underfoot. That being said both bindings were very comfortable. If you are a canting kind of guy, these aren't canted, but they certainly are plush. The auto canted cartels I couldn't feel a difference between those and the missions.
Build quality: top notch. There is no metal on the binding, except screws, but the entire binding is soooo solid. It's better than metal, and it has a better feel than your feet touching cold hard metal.
I'll be posting a video soon and I'll be riding the missions.
