I don't think it will be an issue tbh. Once you are in with your boot, it doesnt flex as much and Im talking I really have to pull to get it to flex a lot. With the boot strapped in, it not much at all. I'm picky so I went back after talking to Burton to verify. Wasn't a big deal at all...

I"m about to post a video that I just made so you can see the heel lift..

2013 Burton Restrict Malavita Binding with Re:Flex - YouTube
I had two thoughts watching that.

First thought, I wonder how easy snow is going to get in the gap and be a pain in the ass. Secondly, the malavita is softer than the cartel so it's possible that I won't see that level of flex...maybe?

I'd be curious to see how the Cartels turn out for you. The base of the bindings def flex and thats what causes it. Did the audio work on that vid?? I couldn't get it to play audio for me lol

I rode the Vitas last year. It wasn't a problem. Didn't notice anything problematic.

I think the reflex is designed to flex with the board. When you're pressing forward like in the video, you'll actually be up on edge, not flat on the ground like that. I think it'll be minimal.

Exactly this.. Its just something new that you have to adjust too. Even on the flat of my carpet, it doesn't feel loose or like there would be a lack of performance. The bindings feel good overall. I didn't mean to try and steer anyone off of their picking up Re:Flex bindings. I think they will be badass out on the mountain.
