        The Head Mojo is one of the burliest and most underrated bindings I have ever come across, if not the best in the plastic binding market.

        Terrain
        I would take these bindings into any situation confidently be it trees, steeps, park, pow or anything else. They may be a bit hard to click into in pow, but what binding isn’t.

        Design
        I will ignore cosmetics as being “design” and talk about the actual design of the binding instead.
        The heel is amazing, my favourite heel out of any binding. It has an amazingly tactile and loud click when you step in and screams confidence to me. A large portion of the heel is metal including the base plate, which is very nice. On the cons side setting the forward pressure can be a bit finicky, but once it is set I find I have never had to readjust on this binding. The brakes screw directly into the ski, which is a bit of a pain if you have to replace them. This was the biggest concern of mine as I typically go through 1-3 brakes a season on other bindings. Thankfully, Head/ Tyrolia makes the strongest brakes I have come across, I’ve never had them brake crack or bend to the point of needing to be replaced over 2 seasons.
        The toe is great, but not as great as other designs. It has a lower elasticity when compared to Rossis so the Din needs to be a smidge higher to keep you locked in. With that said it is very burly and will hold up much longer than most toes.
        When setting the din, the screws click rather nicely and make it easy to correctly adjust and set equally in both toes and heels.

        Durability
        As stated, one of the best. I’ve never needed to replace anything on mine and nothing looks even remotely close to needing to be repaired on my current set. The plastic is super high quality and almost doesn’t even seem like a plastic with how well it holds up to abuse. These bindings do come painted, so the paint does wear away over time, but that is only cosmetic wear.

        Weight
        They come in somewhere in the middle for me. They are slightly lighter than Sth’s I believe but definitely heavier than lower range bindings. The weight isn’t much of a factor when you consider how much life you can get out of a pair.

        Style
        They look ugly in photos, but they aren’t too bad in real life. Depending on how busy your skis look they can actually fit in rather nicely.

        Reliability
        Better than Lassy. I feel these bindings are underrated because people only look at the stats on paper. I was doubtful of them when I started to think about the cons, but I have never had any of the cons really occur. They release when they should and they release smoothly from my experience. When you want to turn they will make sure you turn and in that sense I can really appreciate how rigid they are. This is a race binding, not that it means a whole lot, but they really do hold up; be it carving into a jump or saving yourself on the landing.
        It is a solid binding that will respond when you want.
