Binding Specifics:

  • The AFD plate can be tricky to adjust
    • Ensure the top of the toe lug is touching the bottom side of the very top part of the toe piece. Often times boot can hang up on the rolling parts and therefore set up too loose
    • For flat Alpine boot soles, the afd plate will be awkwardly high at a near 45 degree angle
    • The AFD adjustment has been known to back down. Check periodically
  • Icing and snow build up in the climbing aid and brake locking mechanism can cause brakes to drop or not lock up. Keep this clear
  • Release is fully DIN certified making this the only pin touring binding with DIN release values
