DIESEL I figured I'd post an update here. After hours of struggling through reading pages upon pages of the beautiful language we all know as French, I caved and ordered these:

Snow Binding Burton Cartel Regional Love France

If the best pro-riders of the team like Jeremy, Heikki, Tadashi, Mason or Kevin chose the Cartel, it's not by chance. Proven to be efficient, you'll love it. The binding is designed to trash park and rails, designed to be thrown at walls over and over again. With its baseplate made of 30% of fiberglass and nylon for more flexibility, an asymmetrical highback for more precision, a narrower ankle strap for more comfort, the Cartel claims for performance. Add to it the Re:Flex AutoCANT FullBED Cushioning System with gel inserts, and you get the ultimate dampening, pretty useful for freestylers. You can even adjust the canting for a better stance, and more comfort.

What our testers say : The binding leads to performance and is insanely light thanks to the Re:Flex baseplate. A real feel of freedom for freestylers. It's perfect for experienced riders looking for a binding that'll help them ratchet their skills up a notch in the park, but also on other terrains. The hold provided is indeed perfect and adapts easily to your ride. A great binding!
TECHNICAL INFO :

Category
- FS All mountain
Guarantee
- 1 year

Baseplate - Chassis
- B3 Gel Cushioning :
The same cushioning found in our high-end boots focused underneath the heels for unstoppable impact protection.
- 30% Short-Glass/Nylon :
Slightly more responsive yet still plenty playful.
- Construction Embase Re:flex™ :
Three years in development, Re: Flex™ increases board flex and feel by a whopping 71 % for more natural taste and texture than that of traditional disc bindings.
- Re:flex™ Autocant Fullbed Cushioning system :
Re:Flex AutoCANT FullBED Cushioning System with B3 Gel Heel Cushioning Features Re-Ground Materials in Baseplate and Hi-Back to Reduce Waste
- Under-Baseplate EVA Dampening :
Eats up vibrations and impacts so your body doesn’t have to.
Highback
- Canted Living Hinge™ :
This exclusive technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.
- DialFLAD™ :
The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel-edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe like Danny does, or back ’em off for jibbing like Keegan. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, check out the tool-free DialFLAD™ and MicroFLAD™ systems that give you twice the options of our traditional FLAD.
- Single-Component Hi-Back :
The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. Through material blends we then manipulate the overall flex profile—from buttery to responsive.
- Spoiler Zero Forward Lean :
Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the NEW Zero Forward Lean design on select hi-backs. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls.
Straps - Buckles
- Dual-component buckle
- Smooth Glide™ Buckles :

Polished, chrome-plated aluminum and lightweight polycarbonate levers give you season after season of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power. Designed and built by us, not some shady supplier.
- Gettagrip Capstrap™ :
Triple Axis Spine
Ultra minimized Capstrap construction with TrueWrap toe window.
As Comfortable in Cap Strap as in Toe Strap
- React Strap™ :
Minimized Superstrap™ Construction.

Am I the only one in the States that will have these, I wonder?

the cartel base is slightly stiffer than the genesis base, if you're splitting hairs. The cartel ltd base is the same as the genesis base. I couldn't tell the difference, apart from the weight.
Not sure if you can say the cartel ltd has a stiffer highback than the genesis, and def sure that, while it is funky, the genesis highback is def not less responsive.

DIESEL Yeah I sent them an e-mail but i doubt tey'll get back to me (given they speak English or my google translator works, lol)... I wish they would've just early released them in white though... To be honest, iternational shippings gunna suck waiting 2-4 weeks ao i might bail and get the black ones.. Still up in the air on bindings though..

Supra can you post up a link for the adrenaline site please? Thank you so much!

Supra do a google image search for burton cartel regional love. the french ones are on sale at a shop called adrenaline, iirc. However, it is in France (funny how that is).

DIESEL Found a few pairs, the France's are looking absolutely insane, except they're international and unfortunately I'm not fluent enough in French to order them, haha. The Ski Barn near me does have the NY/NJ "fuggedaboutit's" in stock though, so if I can't find the France versions, the NJ's it is!

eli783 I picked up the 2014 cartel ltd for my trs on supras suggestion. These would be an even better fit for a slightly stiffer board like the trice

2014 cartel ltd (genesis base and straps, cartel highback) would also be a good choice.
Unless you are super picky, any one of the vitas, genesis or cartel ltd will stoke you out
