Carbon fiber bindings? “Why not,” says mad boot-scientist Pierre Gignoux, now working with the mad binding-scientists at Dynafit. Designed to work (only) with the RC1 boot, the binding easily wins the weight crown. At 66 grams without screws, it is borderline ridiculous. Operating without springs, entry into the binding requires ramped notches cut into certain boots made by Pierre. The ramps force open the pins just enough to get in. Exit involves pushing (with your hand only!) the lateral carbon fiber protrusions. Yes, that means there is a left and a right binding. Feel free to name them.

Question from Beast_coaster
 
Is it out of the question to use these bindings with any other boot? I'm asking if its just not possible or is it simply not recommended for a specific reason like theoretical safety issues?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Beast_coaster, the matching boots have angle ramps below the toe fittings that help spread the wings when stepping in. Transitions without those are much less pleasant, and may lead to over-stressing the fiber.
