the binding comes on sort of a track. U get a tool like a screwdriver kinda thing. The toe and heel can move on the track fwd 3cm or backward 3cm. So depending where u set the midpoint u can adjust it for an easier ride in pow or traditional skiing (back) or for park / spins meaning move fwd . Some of the SIA news had some minimal info. Chk the price though ....Regular Price:$495.00
ON SALE!$439.00 ..
or from europe... Marker Volk did some announcing
JESTER SCHIZO – ispo European Ski Award 2009 The JESTER SCHIZO is a binding for all styles – the new highlight of the “Royal Family” of premium freeski bindings from Marker. Its hallmark is the innovative multi-stance adjustor. This technological breakthrough lets the skier vary the binding position freely and directly on the ski by up to 60mm, right there on the slopes. The adjustment takes only seconds and doesn’t even require the skier to unbuckle the binding. The perfect stance for all conditions!
I think it is great. costs too much
This is not really brand new technology. ESS bindings(atomic) years ago offered a similar thing. Rental bindings are adjustable, and there have been noving plate versions (salomon). As mentioned, a select few have been out testing them. Although I agree that I also don't like first year products, I hope that this causes other binding companies to come out with something comparable.
If I ski the east - I like more of a park or fwd set. If I go heli out west, even though operators rent or include skis, i prefer my own and like them set traditional.
They'll give you a year warranty on them anyhow. I hope the NZs and Aussies buy them and test them and report on them for us north americans.
