Default ICS bindings for beginner

Recently picked up snowboarding, and just bought a snowboard... Burton Custom V-Rocker 2010. Probably more board than I need, but I couldn't resist it at $200.

Now I need to pick out some bindings. My question is, should I be looking for some EST bindings to take full advantage of ICS, or are those all too advanced? I mainly will be freeriding, can't see myself hitting the park much (though I guess you never know).

I'm looking for a binding that will be forgiving enough for a beginner, yet something responsive, and something I can grow into. I was thinking something like the Cartel EST... but was worried that that may be too much for a beginner. A lot of people seem to like the Burton P1.1 bindings, but those aren't EST, right? Am I better off trying to find something EST, or just get something for a beginner, like the Customs?


P.s. I have Burton Ruler '09 boots.

You should get EST bindings. It's a waste of the Channel/ICS system to not get EST bindings.

That being said, consider the Mission ESTs. As far as EST bindings go, they're priced on the lower end. A medium response, generally all purpose binding should suit you just fine. If you look at the Missions in the totality of Burton's binding line, they're above the Customs but below the Cartels.

Go with the EST cartels. If you get something like the custom bindings and get the adapter plate you will regret it. The response of the cartels is much better than the customs. It wont be too much for you to handle and will be a good match for your board. Get something you wont have to upgrade from.
