Long and hard traverses are long and hard. To make your travels less hard (though not less long), appropriate equipment selection is critical to shave grams where possible without jeopardizing durability as you traverse large swathes of wilderness. ATK has been at the forefront of creating wickedly light bindings that withstand the Haute Route traverse. While tipping the scales at a weight that would make race bindings of yesteryear envious, this feature-rich binding exhibits a mainly-metal construction that lends itself to lasting. With the use of the patented Cam Release System, the Haute Route binding gives you full control to set release values to your personal preferences. The Haute Route 10 works for most skiers while ATK offers the Haute Route 8 for lighter folk. The 30mm adjustment plate can accommodate several sizes of boots. If durable, adjustable, and light are words commonly used when you describe your ideal binding, then you may have found the one in the ATK Haute Route.

  • Cam Release System helps with reliable and consistent releases.
  • 30mm of BSL adjustment for the other boots in your quiver.
  • Easy Entry System makes stepping in……..easy.
  • Magneto Heel Flaps resist flapping when they should not be flapping.
  • Flat mode plus two riser options for that Wasatch skinner.
  • Alu 7075, Stainless Steel, POM construction saves weight and adds strength.
  • Includes a pair of Kevlar leashes for the sketchy parts of the traverse.
  • Haute Route 10 offers a release range of 5-10, vertically and laterally.
  • Haute Route 8 is for lighter skiers with an adjustable range from 3 to 8.

Questions & Reviews

Question from ant
Is this binding ok for a 200lbs rider for some steep skiing if locked and/or turned up to 10?
Answer from Cole P
Hey Ant, thanks for reaching out. Depending on a number of things you could be fine at 10 but I would check the binding release calculator and as long as you are at or below a 10 on that you will be fine.

Question from Celia
Is this the same toe and heel (w/o brakes obv) as the ATK Crest / Hagan Pure just a different heel mounting?
Answer from Cole P
Hey Celia, you are correct. The toes are exactly the same but the heel is on a friction plate which will be a different mounting pattern.

Question from Gary
Is the ATK Haute Route all metal? What does POM refer to in the materials?
Answer from jbo
Hi Gary, it's nearly all metal. There are a few bits of Polyoxymethylene (POM) aka acetal thermoplastic, e.g. the toe wing coupler.

Question from Tristan N
Hi Folks - do you have any comparisons for riser heights... say compared to the Salomon MTNs? And how about the toe with that cam design - powerful? (I'm considering these for a 185 DPS 124) and does it have a solid/positive toe lock?
Thank you!
Answer from jbo
Hi Tristan, we will methodically analyze when they arrive per usual. In the interim, you can reference the Helio 200 in our list of riser heights.

As far as the toe clamping power, we coincidentally measured the lateral toe retention of all our bindings over the summer. It's not published but give us a ring for some insight.
Answer from Tristan N
Thank you jbo, thats helpful!

Question from Dan
Question regarding weight - is this binding actually lighter than the BD Helio 200 (210gr) and 200 LT (179gr)?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Dan,

The current listed weight is specified by the manufacturer. We have yet to get our hands on a pair for some in house verification!
Answer from jbo
Hi Dan, the manufacturer weight likely does not include the adjustment plate and possibly the crampon receptor. It should be the same as the 200, will verify when they land.
