Sometimes, when you are skiing a steep way too fast, you may wish that your bindings had predetermined safety releases like alpine bindings- just in case. The Black Diamond Diamir Vipec 12's are just the bindings for those situations. Touted as the world's first bindings to combine the lightweight features of a tech binding with the release function of an alpine binding, Black Diamond has built upon this successful design to make the Vipec a cutting edge binding. The binding features three level heel risers, a stronger toe-pin adjustment system, and awesomely, an Easy Switch system that allows heel and toe changes between the different modes without coming out of the binding. The Vipec's safety release happens due to a gliding heel piece. The heel moves creating consistent contact pressure and release as the ski flexes. These bindings are also TUV certified so you know you are good to go as far as reliability and safety.
