Salomon MTN Ski Touring Binding
This is a solid-feeling binding with good retention; I initially took these out for a couple hard in-bounds days including steep variable snow, tight trees, and big icy bumps and I stayed locked in, no prereleases. The step in is easy, which is nice to have in tight situations. Paired these with Zero-Gs for a light and strong bc setup.
The binding is easy to use and sturdy.
I was once a staunch Dynafit ski tourer, for 20 years. I wouldn’t ever buy anything else, especially after buying the Fristchi tech bindings and having tons of trouble with them. But the Salomon MTNs are another story. They are light, simple in their design and look, easy to use, and retention is excellent. I am all salomon MTN now. Love them.
I have a few days on these now and they are quickly becoming my favorite backcountry binding ever- they have every feature I want, and nothing I don't. Light, simple, strong, easy to use, fast and easy transitions. They just have to prove their durability over the next few years and they'll be perfect.
I loved the uphill set up! Everything fit me perfectly! You and your team were so helpful and patient with me! Even giving me a brief tutorial before I skinned up the mountain at the base. Myself and my family will continue to purchase through Cripple Creek for all of our mountain gear! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! I love my new sport of uphill skiing :)
I've used these bindings for two winters now. At first, I was a bit skeptical. They are very "minimalist" and I was afraid they would prerelease and/or break, but to date they have worked flawlessly. Really impressive binding. They feel solid and are easy to use. My son used a pair last winter as well, and he really enjoyed them. I've skied them in deep powder and hard pack conditions and I've even skied them inbounds at Alta and several other resorts. I've never had a problem with them.
