Cultivating the most capable Cartel takes years in the game, and after a grip of seasons pushing progression, only one binding achieves this absolute.
Available in two versions, choose the across-the-board compatibility of Re:Flex™ or the ultimate flex and feel of EST® and experience a new era in pro-caliber control. The Hinge (on the EST® version) increases foot roll for less fatigue and easier ollies, while AutoCANT cushioning on both versions equals anatomic comfort. A hair more powerful than the Malavita, not quite as aggressive as the Diode, the Cartel is the professional-grade for good reason.

Single-Component Baseplate Construction
One material throughout creates consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination.
Re:Flex™ Baseplate Construction
With a minimized, cored baseplate and Living Hinge™ disc, Re:Flex™ dramatically improves board flex and feel, and reduces weight.
Re:Flex™ offers more flex and feel than traditional disc bindings, all in a package that’s universally compatible with all major mounting systems, including 4x4, 3D® and The Channel. The minimized, cored baseplate reduces weight and expands cushioning potential, while the Living Hinge™ disc is the secret to increased flex and feel.
Single-Component Hi-Back Construction
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.
Living Hinge™ Hi-Back
This exclusive technology eliminates hardware and weight, and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.
Zero Forward Lean HI-Back
Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the 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.
Canted Hi-Back Design
This ergonomic design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximize control and comfort.
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. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, our MicroFLAD™ systems give you twice the options of our traditional FLAD.

Re:Flex FullBED Cushioning System
FullBED cushioning offers a full coverage, cushioned platform that maximizes comfort while minimizing fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware.
Dual-density EVA automatically settles your boot into a natural position regardless of stance width or angles for improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and more direct board control. Featured on the Malavita, Cartel™, Escapade™, and Lexa ™.
The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for unstoppable impact protection.
Under-Baseplate EVA Dampening
