Default cartel restricted vs k2 formulas on ns legacy.

hi guys! first post here need some help...
i just got a ns legacy 163. i need some help choosing between 2012 cartels restricted reflex vs k2 formulas, maybe just because there is a 60$ price difference between them.(k2 95$,cartels 160$).
so asking you if does the cartels worth the money? i have f22 boots size 12.5
i'm 210, and 6.2, and im staying out of the park...when riding.
thanks for your opinions.
please help as for me there is no way i could try them here..
heard that older k2 get loose on neversummers...i dont know if the newer model has the same problem...

I would recommend going with the Cartels. I always recommend Burton binders, I've ridden them for a few years now and been very happy with them. Everyone of my friends that buys them have very few problems and are happy. Also, as time goes on their ubiquity works in your favor, when it comes to replacement parts as well.

I have a pair of Cartel RE:Flex on my YES. Basic and I really like them. They were a worthy upgrade from my other pair of bindings. I think it just comes down to if you have the money. If you so then get the Cartels. I think they are a really solid binding.

for 60 dollars get the cartels, I ride cartels and they are a great, comfy and versatile binding.

I'd go with the K2, the Cartels aren't worth the extra 65$.

Neither. Grab a pair of Rome Targas that have a current price point that floats nicely between the two inferior bindings you're looking at.
