Binding Specifics:

  • The titanium U springs will wear out with regular use. Easily replaceable and expect 1 season’s moderate to heavy use, inspect regularly for large divots. 
  • Snow and ice buildup is possible under the toe springs if the bindings are open and skis are on a backpack after touring in wetter snow. Clear this area with ski pole tip and open and closing. Lock then unlock to check if binding is fully clamping the boot.
  • Leash can be girth hitched to hollow section of the toe lever
