no criticism on other bindings but 1) the recent wider format Marker bindings may give u microscopic quicker edge to edge with less effort - it's just the physics of leverage....but what advantage the design gave is that the bindings are shorter and wider so there is less extended swing weight. Spins are more controlled if u can measure that effect on ur skiing...
2) some ski manufacturers put in a dense wood above the edges and a light less dense wood in the center for overall light weight of the ski. So a wider binding screws in and holds better in the denser wood over the edge.
3) Over the last million years of skiing FIS (ski racing regulations) have made the specs for skis and bindings. They governed the size of the waist of the ski and height & bindings....so it is nice to see companies trying to support freestyle and freeride.
4) everybody here already knows about wider brakes and some people love their turntable heels and etc.....and this is not a big deal
