I'd like to say something profound and insightful here, but these bindings have been tried and tested by tons of skiers, and shown to be a solid performer in almost any terrain. Solid metal construction, reliable release with pivoting heel, a bright orange color that is much cooler than it seems, and performance that's hard to beat. These bindings can be a little bit pricey, heavy (but really, not THAT heavy), and difficult to adjust, but they're worth every penny, ounce, and bit of time. In addition to the standard things, I really appreciate the low stand height, and the short mounting length. Rad bindings that everybody should try.
Absolutely love these bindings. I feel safer than ever when riding with them. Easy click in and pivoting heel piece to prevent knee injury is the best thing to happen to bindings since dins. Only thing is they're fairly annoying to put on and off over and over, especially like hiking a feature for a few hours. Other than that, no complaints at all
This binding is bomb proof. You feel soooo secure in them. The binding itself is almost all metal which makes it quite heavy but very durable. They're about $300. My only complaints are the brakes arent replacable so you have to buy a whole new heel piece, ANNND my other complaint is that most of the heel piece is soft but thick plastic. You cannot stomp dont on the heel piece when taking off the ski or else you'll shave off the paint and some plastic. Even the little dimples in the heel piece for your pole to stick in, gets all torn up. 9.9/10 for these bad boys.
These are really solid bindings. They always release when I want them to, and never when I don't. Im sure these have saved my knees in the park many times. They really hold in your boots and you get a really good feel on the ski. Overall dope bindings, but the brakes can get bent.
