Burton P1.1 vs Cartel

I was at my local shop about to buy some cartels when the guy told me they were sold out. He did say they though that they had burton P1's in last years model for 40 pct off. It would of cost me around 200 dollars for the P1s so my question is are the cartels worth the extra money to get and can you list some positives and negatives and reasons why.... Thanks!

Not familiar with the Cartels but I do believe the P1s are a bit on the heavier side.

This years cartels and last years P1s (discontinued for this year) have the same highback (or very similar). I personally like this change for the Cartels as the old skyback was a bit ridiculous (high and a lot of forward lean). I have just replaced my cartels with Targas.

So the biggest difference between the 2 will be the baseplate. The cartels are a 1 piece nylon while the P1s are 2 piece. Cartel is a tad bit stiffer. Depends what you are after really...

Personally, if the Cartels are pricer and soldout...just get the P1s?...unless of course you want this years tech like cantbeds..
