animator@tomPietrowski could probably give more insight to this but gripwalk is a) easy for binding companies to accommodate (e.g. add an adjustable AFD/gripwalk specific AFD) and b) vastly improves grip and walking stride (GripWalk, see what they did there?). I’ve seen a lot of New Years stuff and 90% of it has GripWalk. It took me a little while to come around but having now owned a pair with GripWalk since the beginning of this season, I’m convinced. Mostly the only boots next year that won’t have them are race boots and really entry-level boots. Seems like most companies are going that direction for sure!
TurnfarmerIn 2 years all boots will have grip walk but it won't be called grip walk anymore it will be rolled out as a new ISO norm and will look a lot like group walk. As far as bindings go anything MNC or ID will be compatible.
Hopefully this will fix some of the outliers that still don't lay well together.
was this an autocorrect fail or is group walk a thing?
