2014 EST Cartels

BBT just dropped them off tonight. Compared to 2012 EST Cartels, w/no adjustments to the Gas Pedal or Forward Lean on the Highback.



Back 3/4:


1st impressions: Base seems more solid and beefier in the EST slots. Highback torsional stiffness feels the same, which is odd given the '14s have more material along the sides. The new ones are definitely shorter than the 12's. Straps are nice & don't feel all that different (ReactStrap vs. 'normal' strap?), but I haven't strapped in. I haven't mounted them yet, so no real comparo on the hinge feel along the longitudinal axis of the board. And of course, this will be... in my living room, ollieing on a piece of carpet.

Supra nice! I got those too. How much were yours on sale for?

I think I said that these had the diode bases before. They actually have genesis/malavita bases. The diodes have carbon in them and are different.

Slvr02Scooby Picked up my 2013 Cartel Regional Love's- NW last week. They were just staring at me from the shelf...and were on sale

Pairing them with a 2013 Lib Tech Hotknife 153

qwezxc12 Just ordered a set of the '14s in (L) from Eastern Boarder. I'll admit to drinking the KoolAid on these. I wanted to try a hinged EST binding, but common responses on the interwebs all say that both the 'Vitas and Genesis are softer than Cartels, and the Diodes were more spendy than I wanted.

They will be replacing a set of '12 Cartels on my 162W CX for a few days at Copper and A-Basin over Thanksgiving. Too bad they're only avail in Black - I liked the look of the White Cartels on the CX and my Barracuda.

I'll post my $.02 after I ride 'em.

Supra on the regionals, the ankle strap is the diode/genesis strap too. the toe straps are regular gettagrips. The genesis has 'lightweight gettagrips' which, to me, just seems to be missing an extra piece of rubber across the toe hole. Didn't notice any foam on them when I rode them.

Blitzer 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?

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