Advice on new bindings
I got a new board this year but its a pre 2011 burton channel board and i needed new bindings. My old bindings were soft and really park oriented and im looking for good all mountain bindings for my new board. I currently am looking at the Burton Cartel the Union Atlas and possibly the Burton Malavita, And if i go cartel is est worth it? Also does the new hinge technology on Burton bindings reduce response or is does it not change anything? Which of these bindings is best, or are there other bindings that would be better that you know would work on the pre 2011 channel?

Also is the burton C02 a good binding?

Get the non EST if you do not have the channel. I am using the 2012 Cartels non EST on my EST board and my buddy has the same bindings on his lib tech. It works just fine.

Well it is the channel its just the pre 2011 channel (m5) so its narrower and has different mounting hardware.

The non est comes with a reflex disk that will work with the m5 hardware. I believe you can use the EST as well but you still need to use the m5 hardware again. You need to get a adapter plate if you plan to go with Union. Burton gives you all the disk you could need with the cartels.
