People are getting confused because the Cartels have come with a bunch of different base plates and foot beds over time. For instance, the 2012-13 Limited/2013-14 ones have the Genesis/Malavita base plate which is different from the other 2012-13 Cartels.
So it is important to be very specific about which binding we are talking about.

With the binding off of the board, it should be pretty clear.

Turn the binding upside down so you're looking at the bottom. Look at the toe/gas pedal part of the footbed from the bottom. Are there little plastic tabs coming through from the top with a catch/barb/snap thing? Maybe 4 of them. If so that is what latches the top of the gas pedal to the plastic bottom. These two parts encompass the front of the baseplate. These two parts together slide forward/backward on the baseplate so you can adjust the footbed length.

Heck, if you unsnap the rear of the footbed with the bindings off, the gas pedal should slide freely in and out. Then you can see how it works.

If you'res doesn't look/work like this, then i guess they're different.

I have the re:flex ones shown here:,pd.html

Well I don't know what to say, with the bindings off it isn't clear, and according to Burton customer support it can't be done (even though according to the instruction booklet you can - but like I said they probably package the same book with every binding).

If anyone has clear instructions or a picture or a video for the 2013 Cartel Limited (some places list them as 2014 early release) I'd like to see it, but I don't want to start peeling up foam and ruining the binding if they aren't actually adjustable.

I have these...they're like the new malavita,genesis,and diode base plates....sorry I'm too lazy to take pics,but pull up on the two tabs and bend the foam flap over. Now get a firm grip on that foam piece that includes the flap by placing your 4 fingers where the disc goes and pull outwards towards the toes. It takes some force and you may need to wiggle a bit.

yours are the reflex ones, right?

I have the limiteds and the gas pedal works exactly the same as on regular reflex cartels, genesis, malavita etc.

I was planning on moving a pair to my new juice wagon so I could take a photo for you if you want
