I'm very intrigued by the 2014 Limited Edition. Here is the description

For this limited edition we put the Cartel on the treadmill, shaving
ounces off its already minimized physique.
The result? Snowboarding’s
most recognized binding in it’s lightest weight package yet. Re:Flex™
keeps the pros from other companies calling, offering more flex, more
board feel, and more cushioning in a package that’s compatible with
virtually every board under the sun.

Interesting. I just might buy this. Hinge on a reflex? (EDIT: NM, I conflated Living Hinge with the other Hinge)

fuck it, I'm buying this and returning the 390 bosses I got for $115.


EDIT: Fuck, they only have larges. I hope someone else sells this, only Martini has it (they always have special edition Burtons).

you are mistaken about the hinge. The hinge on the reflex is only the living hinge on the highbacks to adjust forward lean. The EST version has the hinge, so that is the first time the cartels have gotten the hinge.

Don't worry about martini not having them. Like I said earlier, they are slated to start shipping on nov.1, so that's when all the core shops will have them

I have last years 390 though. Plus I have gearitis. Just one more ... The real test is to see how these 2012 straps hold my boot. I'll test them tomorrow.

I thought that they were already famous for having great straps and being pretty light

that's why these will be awesome: even lighter and even better straps. It's a pimped out Cartel

Does anyone know what ankle strap is on the 2013 Regional? It is not an actual picture so its hard to tell. Is it the same as the 2013 Restricted, or is it like the 2014 Early release Cartel (which is like the 2013 Genesis)?

Also, what about the toestrap? Is it the rubber version like the 2013 restricted/regular Cartels, or is it foam like the Genesis?
