Running out of grams to shave, Dynafit collaborated with partner Pierre Gignoux for a new hybrid binding design. Combining PG’s silly-light heel pieces with Dynafit’s proven race toes offered a way to drop weight while keeping all the functionality. The heel design integrates better with RC1 boots than previous LTR models with longer heel pins. But the toe piece is the reliable Dynafit design with an auto-locking lever. If you aren’t ready to go full carbon fiber for your race binding (or are simply over the RC1 skier weight limit), then the Low Tech Race 2.0 is a logical option.

  • Advanced mix of aerospace aluminum and titanium make the binding light yet strong.
  • Lateral and forward release mechanisms provide a modicum of injury prevention.
  • Cutting grooves on the toe pins help to keep your boots ice-free and seated properly.
  • Auto-locking toe lever puts you in uphill mode upon step-in, no manual lifting necessary.
  • Simple flap over the heel pins is the quickest way to change between skiing and hiking.

Question from Eric
 
What are the heel pins made of (titanium?) and are they replaceable? I imagine that these would have the same wear issues that other heel pins have; is it possible to replace these in the same way that the old Dynafit pins are replaceable? Is the heel pin material the only difference between these and the "PDG" bindings?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Eric, yes the heel pins are titanium in the LTR 2.0, versus steel in the PDGs. The pins are replaceable with an Allen key and some Loctite.

Question from Tim
 
Hi, quick question: these are listed as being fitted with an "auto-locking lever" and "Lateral and forward release mechanisms are compliant with ISMF rules and common sense". I'm probably getting myself very confused here, but I thought that to be ISMF compliant the toe has to be of the manual lock variety, not auto lock, which would violate ISMF rules. i.e. there has to be a way to ski the binding in non-lock mode even though in reality everyone seem to ski them locked out.

The language I'm referring to in the ISMF regs is:

"The Binding-System must have a lateral and a front complete release system (the boot is
completely separate from the ski). The lateral release (front part) has to be lockable
manually without tool."

Thanks in advance for clarifying my rubbish understanding of this rule!

Hi Tim, this is a grey area since the rules have been changing and the locking mechanism on the LTR is rather unique (it releases laterally at the heel even when auto-locked). There doesn't seem to be much checking at races, even big ones in Europe. For maximum compliance with the latest translation, check out the manual version.

Comment from Chris W
 
These things are works of art. As far as I can tell, there is zero difference between the LTR 2.0 toe and the Superlite 2.0 toe EXCEPT that the LTR toe is spring loaded auto-locking and cannot be skied unlocked. No doubt this is preferred for both racers and some of the hard-charging guys on lightweight bindings, but I can't do it. It does look like the auto-locking spring could be removed manually to make the toes exactly like the Superlite, but I'm not certain.

Question from david
 
Is the heel mount pattern same or different compared to old LTR

Answer from jbo
 
Hi David, unfortunately not. The new heels are a bit wider and longer. The gory details can be found here.
