The owner of the burton shop said it was made for the park. Are the cartels stiff of flex? I guess flex so park.
But probably I will go for the p1's
If you just grab the Cartels in your hand and try to bend them you can tell they are pretty stiff, much stiffer than Customs or P1s for example.

I really think that if you are looking for a soft binding get the Ride Deltas, if you want stiffer bindings get the Ride RX, and if you like superior responsiveness get Ride Spi's. Why mess around with an overpriced pile of plastic with a big sideways B on it? Burton does make decent boards and great boots but I don't think they have the upper hand AT ALL in the binding market. My .02 cents.
I ride CO2's on a Vapor and I love them, I purchased both at the same time though, so it's hard to say how much of the comfort is the board and how much is the bindings. One extra tip, if you get the CO2s definately get the bright yellow one's, they really stand out.
