Binding Specifics:

  • Heel unit can be run with pins forward for faster transitions. This limits you to medium and high riser heights.
  • 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.
  • Be sure to purchase brake widths tight to the ski. Large brake in this binding can be dropped down by bumping them while skinning.
  • Small plastic clip allows Dynafit ski crampons to be used. Plum  crampons work without clip
