When describing the Freeraider 16, ATK didn’t mince words and went straight to the point, “Send it Hard!” Designed for the biggest and baddest backcountry skiers amongst us, the Freeraider 16 is built for those seeking maximum retention far from the trailhead. The 12mm of total rearward travel is standing by - ready to absorb impact from whatever landing strip you have your sights on. The included toe shim helps balance the heel and toe drop, which is a must for modern freeride bindings. If all that isn’t tantalizing enough, the wide mounting platform and freeride heel spacer provide an unrivaled amount of power transmission, especially when considering its weight. If you are looking to go big, go big with the ATK Freeraider 16.

  • The release value of 9-16 keeps your skis where they should be.
  • Alu Alloys, Stainless Steel, and POM materials make for a robust package.
  • 25mm of BSL adjustment to fit a wide range of boot sizes.
  • Five different heel ride options provide plenty of....options!
  • 12mm of travel in the Elastic Response System smooths out high-impact landings.
  • Cam Release System helps with heel release and retention.
  • Easy Entry System helps with stepping into the toe piece.
  • Snow-Pack Proof toe prevents snow/ice/debris buildup.
  • Uphill Hardness Variator allows you to adjust toe piece locking pressure for security on the up.
  • Magneto Heel Flaps help stabilize the heel risers so they don't flop around

Question from Vermy
 
Is it possible to lock down lateral toe settings on freeraider 16 . It releases on highest setting dangerously often.
8/18/2022
Answer from Jeff
 
Vermy, Of any binding, you should not be coming out of this one 'Often'. Please contact us at help@skimo.co with more details of what is happening.

Answer from Ben
 
The low/medium/high settings on the toe do not effect the clamping force in downhill mode, they only change settings for locked uphill mode, the idea is to accommodate for worn tech inserts in boots. The new ATK Raider Evo bindings coming out in a few months will supposedly have a truly adjustable release toepiece.

Question from Drew Burman
 
I got into touring with the salomon shifts and used them for 3 years. I am looking for a new binding for some 110’s. Would the freeraider 16’s provide similar stability but lighter and more features?

Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Drew, I think ATK Freeraider 16 would absolutely be up your alley. With strong durable materials at nearly half the weight of the Shift, many of ATK's bindings are extremely impressive for how well they perform. I do think however it really does depend on where you plan to use your bindings and what type of skier you are. Will you be skiing primary in bounds? Will you be hucking huge cliffs? If so then maybe the Freeraider 16 may not be the best binding for the job because in reality it still is a pretty lightweight tech binding and especially if your intention is to use them primarily at the resort it may not be the best option. But, if you are looking for a burly tech binding that can be skied aggressively, while still maintaining a low weight penalty ATK is amazing.

One other binding you might look at that has a bit more elasticity is the heel and is a DIN-certified tech binding would be the ever-reliable Dynafit Rotation 14. This would be the one tech binding that I would feel comfortable doing more resort days on while still being a fair amount lighter than the Shift. Give us a shout at help@skimo.co with any other questions you might have.

Answer from Mike K
 
I am 5‘9“, 207lbs.
These are currently on some 189cm Scott Scrapper 115‘s. Man, the FR16‘s feel very connected to the skis. The boot, binding and ski system feels tight, powerful and responsive with these as the link.
At this point I have not found the upper limit and feel confident in all conditions and with speed. Despite the lack of bulk and weight, ATK had made a wonderfully simple, powerful and functional binding.

Hello Seamus, this is indeed the actual ATK Freeraider, although we also carry rebranded variations of the Raider series. You can check out a couple in the "related products" section on this page for comparison.

Question from Jo Jo Hooba
 
I have a 104mm ski. Should I get the 102mm or the 108mm brakes?
2/12/2022
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Jo Jo. Either would be fine. If you aren't going to use the bindings on a bigger ski in the future, go with the 102mm and stretch them to fit.

Question from Ron O
 
I am considering this binding for the Armada ARV116 JJ UL will the 108 brake be large enough or is the 120 a better fit?
12/6/2021
Answer from Tristan M
 
Hi Ron,

For a ski that is 116mm underfoot, I would definitely go with the 120mm brakes.
