Redline Shit happens. Fortunately Burton has lifetime base-plate warranty. I have these bindings and like them. They hold my foot on the board.

twowheeled very disappointed in my 2013 cartel reflex. bought these over christmas and about 30 days on them and the baseplate is cracked. I'll be sending this back for warranty but I have never had a baseplate crack before.

Did you try these out in L or M? I am riding a very similar ride and thinking about getting a pair but on the sizing chart we can go either way.

East§ide Eh I have bad knees and I find the autocanting to be great. It's the exact same concept except that instead of deciding whether you need 2* or 3* of angle or whatever, the footbed naturally conforms to the angle your boots end up at. I have 3 days on the Cartels and I've definitely noticed the autocant

btw I own both pairs so I wasn't borrowing my friends and did 1 run...
so you wouldnt recommened this binding for someone particularly looking for canting? my knees are effed and this is a main buying point for me. was tossing up between the boss 390s, ride capo, cartels...

East§ide I also just picked up a pair of these and absolutely love them. I went from 2013 Missions to these and the difference is actually very noticeable, the biggest being that that asym strap is AMAZING. You honestly don't even feel it, an edge to edge, I've never been faster. Also, I did notice that my boots literally do not move in these bindings at all.

Very, very happy with them.

For start, the restricted Cartels only difference to the originals is the NEW Asym React Strap vs the Asym Strap! Never tried the Asym strap, but can tell you that the React Asym strap is MONEY!!! They are the same ones on the Malavitas just for reference.
Probably a little late for a correction, but anyways:
The bold part is not correct.
The 'original'/regular Cartel had the React Strap this year. Hence, the difference between the restricted and regular Cartels was getting the Asym React Strap vs. the React Strap.
What you describe (Asym React Strap vs. the Asym Strap) is actually the difference between the Restricted Cartels for 2012/13 and 2011/12.

Spaceship Dude =] I just started using these same bindings and they really are Great! Have tried the Asym strap but prefer the react strap..more of that plastic skeletal frame and is cut better. Asym strap is nice but softer and not as responsive. Rubber coated frame is pretty nice touch too. Response is really tight. but bindings I had before were like 10 years old so maybe its that also.

Unfortunately never had a pair with canting so I cannot comment. Maybe OP could.
