skigumbyWhat exactly is a frame binding? Why do people not like them?
Key points on why they are not popular
- Heavier then pin bindings
- Specifically in the case of light weight frames like pictured they are not knowen for being very durable
- Power transfer from your boot to ski is affected since you are higher and thus further from the ski
However they allow you to use a none pin specific boot so that can be a money saver, like I said if you are trying to get in for cheap then I wouldent be to picky. Find something fairly light and the right size and you will have a good time

just wait for this spring/fall when every muppet who got a $2500 touring set up this year realizes technical snowshoeing uphill isn’t for them.
