The Plum 170 binding is the 150 with a built-in 20mm adjustment plate. If you plan on using more than one boot with your setup, this is the version for you. The re-designed toe pieces feature smooth-operating lock levers that have clear stops for skiing and skinning. The wings are the same design that has stood the test of time. The heel piece has a simple pin-cover flap for uphill skinning and a can be turned sideways for flat-on-ski skating (shuffling?). All pins are steel with the heels being relatively resistant to notching. The Plum Race series has become of a standard setter for reliable racing and more.
Update 2016/17: Plum redesigned the toe lever (see 2nd photo) to avoid locking problems with some boots. All of our inventory has the update.
