It’s like skiing on rails. The Hagan Core binding is a powerful, full-featured binding that is amazingly light on the climb. Several nifty innovations make the Core a polished product with excellent skiing and release properties. A patented system lets the heel-pins rotate about a pivot versus travelling on a flat axis like traditional “U” springs. This enables easy step-in with improved retention and release characteristics. The heel housing also rides on a spring, absorbing energy and providing an elastic response to ski flex. Also of note, the climbing risers are very slick! Magnets keep them in place but are easily changed with a flick of the pole. They can be used on either side of the tower, meaning there are fully 5 different height positions. Refinements to the toe piece make the Hagan Core easy to step into and less affected by boot wear. A brake in integrated which stays retracted while touring and deploys in a pinch. Summed up, the Core binding will become a staple of your fleet, ready to tackle the biggest mountains.

  • Heel Elastic Response System (E.R.S.) absorbs energy during compressions.
  • CAM heel system provides better precision and release with pivoting heel pins.
  • Smooth magnetic risers prevent floppin' and can be used in either direction.
  • Unique toe brakes stop runaway skis yet won’t interfere with lateral release.
  • Fully adjustable release values range from 5-12 on the “RV” scale.
  • 30mm of heel adjustment will help you fit a range of boots.
  • Integrated crampon receptor will be nice come spring.

Question from kevin
Can you tell me what the pin height difference is between heel and toe on this binding? I notice it isn't on your chart that lists this. Thanks!
Answer from jbo
Hi Kevin, I've taken those measurements for you. The Core binding has a +10.5mm delta.
