With its reasonable weight, full-featured personality, and competitive cost, the Crest series from ATK has been a smart choice for many getting into backcountry skiing. Further distilled and refined, ATK has made thoughtful updates and improvements to the Crest 10 that build upon this already-proven platform. Compared to its predecessor, the updated Crest binding utilizes two heel risers smartly secured using magnets, allowing you to ascend steep skin tracks while avoiding any "clacking" when stowed. Using the same toe piece found on the beefier Raider SL series, the ergonomic toe piece offers a better downhill feel while improving its ease of use in deep snow conditions, thanks to its Snow Pack Proof design. Similar to its predecessor, the elastic travel in the heel and adjustable release values help keep the release values consistent while allowing you to adjust the release to your specific needs. Finally, the AP Brake System uses a tried and true design that is simple and intuitive, though, it does require two hands to operate. With its compilation of features and robust construction, the ATK Crest 10 is sure to please new entrants and experienced backcountry skiers alike.

  • Snow Pack Proof Toe resists the buildup of snow under the toe wings, ensuring reliable use even in deep snow.
  • Elastic Response System allows the natural flexing of the ski, ensuring the ski can perform as designed.
  • Adjustable release values between 4-10 accommodate most skiers.
  • BSL adjustment of 20mm allows you to share your setup with friends, should you be in a sharing mood.
  • AP Brake System is easy and reliable to operate.
  • Cam Release System allows for easy step-in to the heel, even in loose snow.
  • Magneto Heel Risers keep the risers from obnoxiously flapping around.
