Dynafit calls the Superlite 2.0 a revolution instead of an evolution. If you like brakes then you might be inclined to agree, since the new version is the first race-weight binding with an (optional) integrated brake. It maintains the fully adjustable lateral-release of the original Superlite that prompted many skiers to start using race bindings for every day touring. More aggressive folks may appreciate the ability to turn the release value up to 12 (versus 10 in the previous incarnation). The forward release is mostly fixed, however, albeit with some possibility of changing via a U-spring swap. The heel features two riser positions when rotated 180°. Last but not least, the mounting pattern was increased from a tripod to a more stable 4-hole pattern so you can really get after it.
* Please note that the brakes are not included and sold as an optional accessory.
