Burton Cartel EST?

Got a few simple questions:

I just picked up K2 Happy Hour, are Burton Cartel EST compatible with this board? What's the difference between EST & Reflex (think that's what is it called) Thanks in advance

Not compatible.

Difference is that EST bindings do not have a disk and only work with Burton EST/ICS boards (the ones with the 'channel') while the Reflex bindings still use a disk (albeit a non-traditional one) for the standard 4x2 or 4x4 mounting holes.

wow thanks, all this time I thought it was compatible, any suggestions what binding would go well with this? does that mean I shouldn't look at Burton Moto boots cause I was deciding on those too

It's still compatible with Burton Cartel (not EST version) and you can buy Burton Moto, if you like it.

if your gona go burton boots personally my favorite i have used are the ozone but moto also have size reduction too and are about the same softness. any who go toe cup bindings check out unions, the happy hour is a park board too you might really consider getting missions as well.

i personally build my own hybrid synrcho mission cartels.



i really like missions way better then cartels


those are cartel toe cups i really suggest getting those kind , they work way better then the ones that dont stretch over your toe
