All-metal bindings under 100 grams? You betcha (pending weigh-in)! Designed for those folks looking for every edge in competition, the Plum 99 is the new pinnacle of race-binding minimalism. It also adds a new twist to the concept of adjustable release. Choose from two lateral-release values (roughly 6 or 8) simply by changing the mounting-orientation of the heel. The forward release remains fixed in the middle, and features a standard race-heel flap to cover the pins while skinning. Given its svelte nature, Plum recommends using the 99 for racing and training only.
