La Sportiva's RT Binding is a lightweight yet adjustable tech binding for racing and long or fast tours. Weighing in at just 30 grams more that La Sportiva's World Cup race binding, the award winning RT features three riser heights and full release value adjustability. It also has the option to add innovative lightweight brakes, making this the lightest binding on the market that is resort friendly without leashes.
Please note that the picture does not show the highest riser, as it does not come attached in the box. Adding the riser, which screws onto one side of the rectangular housing, adds about 7 grams per binding.
RT vs RSR
The RSR binding is La Sportiva's lightest race binding, saving your 30 grams over the RT. For this price you will pay $50 and lose two riser heights and all release adjustability. The toe pieces are very similar, featuring both skiing and locked-out modes and the ability to add a crampon should the going get slick.
