-SnowSnoli-Look into the cast system. kind of a win win if you want wide skis to tour on.. all the bonus's of an alpine binding with all the benefits of dynafit toe for going up.
Though if all you really want is tech bindings. the Dynafit TLT radical ST seems pretty solid and we sell a lot of them at the shop i work at.
Or the plum yak which is designed for wider skis...
tomPietrowskiAre you looking to replace your boots as well for a tech setup or are you wanting to keep your alpine boots? Thi will be the bigger factor in selectin which bindin to go for.
JVanDykeIf you're looking at lighter weight frame AT bindings I'd advise having a look at the Marker F12s. In comparison to Fritschi they're lighter, more durable, allow for better ski feel and have better power transmission. On comparison to the Baron, from my personal experience they are on par with them durability wise, so I don't see why you would go for a Baron over an F12.
HP123Ideally I would make the full swap over but at this point in my life I'm too broke and cheap to get a real setup :( Currently I'm on some FT Konflicts which I absolutely love but they are starting to break apart on me. They will last for another year at least though. My decision would be what binding to put on my pow skis ~115 underfoot. Since I'm not completely dedicated YET, I would be using these skis 50% in bounds 50% out of bounds. What I'm most concerned about is weight, as I don't want to be limited when I do decide to tour.
Do I just get some bca trekkers until I get a dedicated setup? Would the Marker f12 be a good fit? (145lbs) And do I stay away from a tech binding completely If I'll be skiing in bounds with them?
