I give it a 9 for 1 possible pre release so far. Other than that A++ and salomon bindings are one of the safest on the market according to my shops tech guys.
Yes the click in feels so solid and they don't get bogged down with snow. They are low to the ski and give me a solid connection for sure.
They look pretty simple and dope. I dig them for sure. And again the click in is so satisfying.
Hard to say this one because I did not get them at retail because I work in a shop. But comparing retail prices I think they are well worth the money.
Haven't needed too many releases yet but they are awesome when they have. I have dropped some 30 foot cliffs and they hold up. I tomahawked down a steep pitch the other day skiing big mtn and they blew off possibly a little prematurely but it is hard to tell if they actually saved me or not. All in all i was not hurt, so that is an A+ for me.
We will see, I have heard of these toe pieces blowing up because they are composite unlike teh sth 16's but so far so good.
