Eastžide oddly enough, my Rome Libertines (2013) have matching ridges on the back of the boot and they fit together perfectly with the Cartels. I havent noticed any wear or tear on my boots since switching to Cartels.

tokyo_dom BurtonBindings/Glaucon, i have noticed some gnarly wear on my Burton Ambush boots as well, from my Mission Restricted bindings (after about 8 days use). Checking the Burton site I see the driver X has similar design at the back - that backstay doesnt go all the way to the sole. The binding appears to be attacking the top of the heel strip bit where the backstay ends - i hope that isnt a structural part of the boot because the stitching on mine is about to be worn through...

herjazz seems like you can just file it down if it's giving your boots premature wear...

Pretty sure it's a binding defect as well, given the subject matter of this thread and what you just said about the ridges. But that's ok, I'll take it through the proper channels.

glaucon The Cartels don't just discriminate against non-Burton boots. I bought new cartels and Driver X boots this season and I'm already seeing wear through the material on the back of the heel on the boots.

I'm extremely disappointed, this is brand new gear.

Any advice on that, BurtonBindings?

jwelsh83 I know it sounds like a pain, but get new bindings if you have the $$ unless filing them down works for you. I bought the Malavitas, no ridges, problem solved. Just be cautious in the future... but I feel your pain on your Vapens. My DK's are torched! FYI, the Missions have the ridges as well. When and if you do plan to buy different bindings, definitely go in store and check them out to see if they do have ridges. Can't blame Burton, it wouldn't be as bad if Nike did have back stays on their boots but it sucks...

Burton Cartel, chewed up boots...HELP!

Oh okay let me know how that goes... I'm scared to try it lol... But something needs to be done because I love these bindings but they are killing my Nike Vapens!

I am going to just sand the ridges down smooth on mine since I noticed they are starting to damage my brand new burton rampant boots
