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.

  • Optional stopper system accepts optional brakes in 75, 90, and 105mm widths.
  • Lateral release can be adjusted between 7-12 to match your size & ability.
  • Two risers let you climb the steeps efficiently after rotating the heel piece.
  • Proven toe pieces design has both unlocked-skiing and locked-uphill modes.
  • 4-hole mounting pattern offers more stability and hold than previous Superlites.

* Please note that the brakes are not included and sold as an optional accessory.

Question from Thatcher
 
Are these bindings adjustable at all for different boots? I have two size 29 boots of different brands: Solomon MTN Explore, and Arcteryx Procline. What is the total adjustment range on these bindings? and is it a quick process if I'm switching between boots regularly? Do I need the separate Dynafit adjustment plate in order to accommodate these different boot sizes
11/30/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Thatcher, only with the adjustment plates can they fit multiple boot lengths. There is about 20mm of range with those.

Question from Randy
 
I was told by a ski tech that these bindings won't work very well on a more flexible ski, such as my Volkl Nanuqs: there's a potential for the boot to slip out. Is this true?
11/14/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Randy, there are thousands and thousands of people skiing with tech bindings around the world. While you can get boots to pull off a tech heel by over-cambering the ski on the workbench, this is not a problem in practice when you're standing on the skis. Even on much softer skis using bindings with shorter pins than those found on the Superlite.

Question from Jorn
 
Any chance that the 105mm brake would work for a 106mm ski like for instance the Movement Alp Tracks 106?
10/13/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jorn, yes the 105 brakes work fine on the Alp Tracks 106. They will fit a few more mm than list.

Question from Michael
 
Now that the white version of this binding is being sold, any chance the lower RV forks (the ones from the white version) will be available to purchase for this binding? Love the Superlight 2.0 but would like to have a lower RV fork that's easier to step into.

If so, is this an easy install?
8/30/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Michael, it sounds like the forks will not be available separately unfortunately.

Comment from MikeB
 
Had these mounted on G3 ZenOxide 88s. The (lack of) weight is awesome. And I am an apostate, so the brakes is great too. No problem with stepping-in, but I am over 200lb, so maybe that is it. They sure feel secure when they are on. No pre-releases. Just a couple of issues:
- the press-fit pin that the heel lift pivots around, and, more critically, that retains the U-spring, came loose on one binding. This would NOT be a good pin to loose. Once it is out, the U-spring is gone the next time you step in. No probs on the warranty, tho, so all is good.
- with the brakes on, when the heel is rotated backwards, the brake seems to ever so slightly cant the heel piece upwards a little, which, it seems, makes it easier to auto-rotate. Haven't actually done a comparo to see if no-brakes will solve it, but boy, when the snowpack is firm like on spring mornings, and the ski track canted off-angle and you need to rotate your ankles to get the ski flat, that heel auto-rotates a LOT. Has only been a problem in hard spring snow with off-angle tracks. Not sure if others are seeing this. Hopefully the B&D solution will fix this.

I had looked at these bindings for a lightweight approach ski for moderate climbing terrain where I would feel comfortable using my TLT boots. I paired them with a G3 Stinger XCD ski for a decently lightweight scaled ski. Ultimately I am breaking this setup apart as I just do not like these bindings for my personal use. I feel they are a step backward from the original Superlite for my quixotic tastes. I dislike that the 2.0 compromises the race-style ease of use of the Superlite to give people the ability to use a brake and still be able to tour. This is a personal grievances though and I cannot substantively fault/down-rate the binding on these points. The binding provides a lot of function for the weight and is a great option for those who aren't afflicted with rando pragmatism.
One thing to note, make sure your shop knows how to mount these. My experience having these mounted is what ultimately pushed me to mount my own bindings. The shop I had these mounted at went overboard on the glue which clogged the spring-loaded pins that allow the brake to be attached. It was impossible to mount a brake because of this without removing the binding and cleaning the springs. For the gram-conscious who eschew brakes, the spring can be removed with a 9/64" hex key saving 5 grams per binding. Though, If you are truly concerned about saving 5 grams you should look at other bindings.

I mounted a pair of Superlight 2.0 bindings on my new Sportiva RST 2.0 skis. My primary setup previously had been Speed Radicals on Movement Shift skis, so the weight savings of more than 150g per foot was quite welcome (for the bindings only, nearly 700g per foot for the setup).

The first thing you notice with the Superlight from the Speed Radical is that the step-in force is higher - not just the heel as mentioned elsewhere, but the toe as well. I haven't yard-saled and forced a release, but the Superlight feels more secure in its closure than the Radical to me (which I have pre-released from once or twice in situations where the Superlight has held firm).

In basic function the Superlight is effectively like every other tech binding, the difference is that it's lighter (than everything but a full-on race binding) but still feels very solid and secure.

For those who are curious about a flat-boot touring position, because there is no detent in the swivel of the tower it really will not stay rotated perpendicular to the ski and this is not (natively) a viable option. I have read that B&D have solution that may be coming or even currently available, but have not used that myself.

The issue that people have mentioned with this binding is that the release value for the forward release may be high for some people. Kreuzspitze offers adjustable forward and lateral release on their GT binding - why can't Dynafit do the same here? A Superlight 3.0 maybe? This is the reason that I give this binding 4 stars instead of 5.

Over time we'll see how the durability is. So far there is nothing to make me question it - but the original Superlite was knocked for occasionally having durability issues, so I'll watch that.

Finally, the 6mm heel-toe differential was perfect for me and matched my Speed Radical bindings with a B&D toe riser. I have some 'gas pedal' shims in my boots that take up extra volume in the toes and make the differential feel perfectly balanced for me. I was very happy to be able to replicate that with the new setup without adding shims.

Question from Bill Hopkins
 
Hello,

Have you had any complaints about very difficult heel engagement for downhill mode w/ the Superlight 2.0 binding? I bought a pair for my wife and she has had problems. Also, took them to a local shop, same problem even w/ same size but different styles of boot. FWIW - I bought them online from an individual. Not surprisingly, Dynafit will not replace them. However they were unused and in their original packaging when I received them.

Thanks for any insights/advice you can provide. As is, we consider these bindings marginally functional and a liability to take in the back country.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Bill, first check that your heel gap is set to 5.5mm. If it's closer, that will make it harder to step in. Also remember that the forward release on this binding is fixed at a level which may be too strong for your wife. FYI there is a women's edition of this binding that hopefully will be available next season that has a lower forward release.

Answer from abp
 
It's funny, I have absolutely no problem clicking into mine, but I've heard the same gripe from other people as well. I'm probably on the large side for people using skimo gear (6 foot and 200 pounds) and the takeaway here may well be that it's just overkill for anyone who doesn't have the force to click in. For us larger, more powerful folks however, I think the 2.0 is kind of the best thing going in terms of a very light binding with high retention values. I know a number of people (including myself) who rock this binding as a daily driver on 110+ waisted powder skis and find that it's limits are well outside what you normally encounter on a proper tour. I jump off of things on mine with no hesitation...

Answer from Casper C
 
I sympathize with your hardship. The binding is incredibly hard for me to get into, too. So much so that I worry about being able to click in on a soft, slidy, powdery slope. This is my first tech binding, so I don't really notice the weight difference in my body, although I do notice that the reduction in weight on my overall setup is conducive to a lot of speed on the slope. Something I might try next is to use the Superlight toe piece with the Expedition heal piece for a sturdier, faster binding function.

Will the Radical 2.0 mounting pattern match the Superlite 2.0 or is that just wishful thinking?

Question from Snaffelhound
 
Any plans on importing the lower din forks for these bindings from Dynafit?
The women's version, available in Europe seems to have a more reasonable release.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Snaffelhound, Dynafit isn't currently offering that binding in the US unfortunately. Hopefully we can get it for next season.
