ATK Kevlar Core Leashes


In Stock

Free shipping over $50

ATK leashes are made with a Kevlar core to be ultralight yet strong. They extend up to 60cm (two feet) but have a spiral polyurethane sheath that otherwise prevents them from slopping around and getting caught on branches. A simple clipping system lets you hook and unhook your skis at will. The leashes weigh 17 grams (0.6 ounces) each and will break with an elongation force of around 70kg (154 lbs). Sold in pairs.

Questions & Reviews

Question from will
Will these leashes fit on the Marker Alpinist?
Answer from Jeff
Will,, This leash will not fit in the tiny hole on the Alpinist. You are better off with the Marker leash.

I own one pair of these leashes and swap them between every pair of skis I own. Low profile and extend up to a nice length to step out of bindings. The nose of the carabiner likes to snag, but quick work with a file, grinder or dremel tool remedies that.

I am a tremendous fan of the aramid core (as opposed to steel cable). I have had problems with metal fatigue on others from continuously stepping on the tech toe nose, and simultaneously bending the leashes. No problems with these a few years of heavy use and they're still going strong.

Question from Ettore

Can I attach them on Dynafit TNT?

The other leash from Dynafit that you have doesn't come with the wire if I have understood correclty..

Which one do you reccomand me?

Answer from Trace Leches
Hi Ettore! Yes, they will attach to a Dynafit TLT! The Dynafit leash does come with metal loops to girth hitch the loop and the attachment loop to your binding and boot, whereas this ATK leash comes with a key-ring of sorts. The Dynafit Leash offers a slightly more flexible attachment system, but the ATK leash is a bit more robust.

Question from Shiv
Do you know when these will be available in stock?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Shiv! Should be any day now actually. Kreuzspitze also makes a similar leash that has already shipped and will likely be here even sooner.

The length is just right allowing me to step out but not too long that they drag. The nose on the carbiner is too big and makes it a hassle to unclip. I shaved the nose down and it works much more smoothly.

Question from ROBERT HESS
Hi, does the looped end that attaches to the ski break, have a black slider adjuster that you pull down on to take up the slack of the large loop? Or does the large loop just go onto the ski brake as shown in the picture with no adjustment? Is Atk manufacturer located in the usa? Please advise. -Rob
Answer from jbo
Hi Robert, none of the black areas slide. It's meant to be attached with a girth hitch. ATK is in Italy.

Followed Jonathan's lead and just girth-hitched the leash to my Dynafit Superlight 2.0. Leashes seem solid and secure, but come with the added benefit of a break-away link.

Dynafit leashes are too short in my book, B&D are very long and have to loop around you cuff if you don't want them to wag around as you ski. The ATK leashes are very light, with just the right amount of length and stretch.

Not sure what you'd need to do to make a better leash. Seems like these are pretty well dialed in my book.

Five Stars for a perfect stretchy leash. Nearly weightless unlike some competitors, and very compact when all coiled up, but has some decent length when extended.

I’ve previously made my own leashes out of 3mm accessory cord, but dialing in the length exactly can be tricky when swapping between different boots and bindings (i.e., with different attachment points). With this leash though, any excess length stays out of the way instead of flopping around, and the coils of course extend when you need a little more length for clipping.

I did though modify it as shown in the attached picture to be more like my custom leashes. For the attachment point to the binding, I didn’t bother with the provided key-style split rings, and instead just girth-hitched it to the hole on a Plum race toe lever (or on a Dynafit race toe to the open part of the frame on the side). For the attachment point to the boot, the provided mini fakabiners are probably preferable if you have bulky handwear. But since I almost always use thin gloves, I substituted in a plastic “hangman snap hook” (with the original swivel part dremmelled off) attached with cable/zip ties.
