i've had both and i am running triads now, they just seem more comfortable to me. response is just about the same but triads have a co2 highback instead, they both use the same tray. hope that helps

oh yea, and triads have this little grip fit thing in the toe strap, basically a little rubber flap at the bottom of the toe strap that help prevent it from rising. my brother's cartels have that problem, his toe strap sometimes rises over his toes.

i just had this same dilemma and ended up going with the triads because the back is a little shorter.

I picked up a pair of triads the last time I went boarding; I absolutly love them! they're super comfy, eat up shock and are snappy with response.

Cartels are stiffer and felt more responsive, but the Triads were more comfy.

bought triads last season, and still enjoying them this season. i'm more of a all mountain freestyle guy and the bindings are just perfect.

Just FYI my 09 Cartels have this in the toe cap strap as well, except its the entire inside, not just a little strip. Not sure if your brother has older Cartels or not but the new ones do have rubber inside to keep a firm grip.

used 08 cartels a bit last season, and i have 08 triads this season. both very good bindings, similar in response, but the triads offer more cush. i literally ride all day and i never have issues with pressure points or foot pain.
