2011 Burton Cartel EST too much forward lean?
 
I recently picked up a whole new setup straight from Burton:

All 2011 Gear

156 Custom X
Cartel bindings
Hail boots sz. 10

The problem is the binding having too much forward lean. I tried them once maybe 2 years ago and they made my feet fall asleep because I found myself having to put so much pressure on my toes. My old setup is from 2007/08 159 Atomic Alibi with Forum Arena bindings which compared to the cartels lean way far back.


My question is which bindings have less forward lean?!? I don't do much park I am more into free riding. A friend at a local shop said they have some 09' Mission EST bindings, does anybody know how those would be for me?!?

Any help would be great

Bend your knees more, take up a proper riding posture.

:P

one of the main reasons I hate burton binding is because of that crazy forward lean. that plus every pair I ever had ended up breaking left n right.

Well since a ton of people ride and love the cartel, you can probably set the lean to the lowest position and then play around with the rest of the adjustability (there is enough) to make it comfortable. If that doesnt work then I'd say get some new bindings.

I second this. Also I LOVE my Cartels.
