Default Burton 2012 bindings

Hello, I will buy Signal Park Flat 2012 and would like to find best bindings for this board. Untill now I was using Burton Cartel 2009 bindings and was really happy with quality and how they feel (maybe little too heavy, but it's ok). I really love their quality and comfort, so probably I'll buy another pair of Burton bindings.
What's the diference between 2012 Cartel (Cartel Binding | Burton Snowboards) and 2012 Restricted Cartel (Cartel Binding | Burton Snowboards Or should I look into other Burton bindings? They have so many different models...
50% buttering, 25% rails/boxes, 25% small & medium kickers.

Restricted cartels have the asymmetrical strap which everyone loves.

With the percentages you listed, why not the Malavitas? The regular and restricted malavitas come with that strap.

I'm using flux rk 30s on my park flat and they seem to pair really well. They're soft yet provide plenty of edge engagment when needed. They also have plenty of adjustability to get them dialed in. The only downside with them is they are sparsely padded on the heel.

I just bought a new pair of Cartels and love them. I was riding P1.1's previously. The new Cartels are much lighter and have more tech in them now (B3 Gel, Auto-Cant footbeds).

I don't know. Do you think Malavitas are better with this board and my riding style than Cartels? I saw some reviews, both looks good. Just I already had Cartels, but haven't tried Malavitas and have no opportunity to demo.

The park flat is a pretty soft board the Cartels are probably over kill. The Malavitas are likely a better match, or any softer park-freestyle binding.

Cartels are more do it all type bindings from what I've seen. The malavitas which I have used, are a little softer, but not too soft. The board you are using is pretty damn soft from everything I've just read (I'm looking into buying a jib/butter stick). I think the malavitas are a better matchup flex wise.
And you don't have to look for restricteds to get the asym strap.

Everyone loves the asym strap. Do it.
