ATK Trofeo Binding

Historically, race binding selection was based on an individual's needed release value and not much else. So even though the metallic hue of that one binding was calling your name, too bad! At least until now, that is. With the Trofeo, ATK has made the same great, race binding but with the option to choose between release values of 4,6,8, and 10. Now, everyone can enjoy the smooth, reliable action definitive of an ATK toepiece. For all but the biggest racers that need very high release values, the Trofeo has your back (feet?) in the quest for podium glory.

  • Made of Alu 7075, Stainless Steel, and POM for a quality, durable build.
  • Release value options of 4, 6, 8, or 10 for your retaining pleasure.
  • Easy Entry System makes entry into the toe piece a breeze.
  • Simple heel flap covers the pins to fly uphill.
  • Solid steel heel pins will last you a long time.
  • Optional adjustment plates for use with multiple boots.
  • Optional crampon receptor will help you climb ice.
  • Can accommodate an optional ski race brake.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Dennis K
Do y'all sell the aforementioned "Optional crampon receptor"? Or if not, do you know where I might be able to find the part? And does it need to be mounted with the bindings, or can it be added on after the fact?
Answer from Ian C
Hey Dennis, we do sell those https://skimo.co/atk-binding-parts, under "crampon slots." You can just slide them on, no need to re-mount!

Question from Pozitivvibration
Hey, I have a question, which version of the Trofeo with how many DINs is better to choose in my case? I am 6.2 tall and 194 lbs in weight. I will use the Hagan Ultra 65 ski and the Scarpa Alien / Dynafit Mezzalama 29 boot for racing and speed training. I am amateur, not professional skimo athlete. In the DIN calculator I calculated the value of 8 but I am thinking about 10 version due to my quite high weight for racing, what do you think?
Answer from Zak M
Hey Pozitivvibration, thanks for the inquiry! So far from our testing we have found the ATK Trofeo binding to be testing fairly accurately, but quite typically with a higher BSL the release value would be charting out just a bit lower. So if you were just gonna be using the binding for a race setup you could sway either way but sticking with the allotted release value is preferred. Overall that would definitely be a personal choice to move to the higher U spring especially knowing the potential downsides. Feel free to reach out to help@skimo.co if you have any other binding questions!

These things are so bomber. I've never had a problem with these bindings, ever. Very elegant binding.

I think in the reviews of the BD-branded version of these bindings that people have noted the heel turret is hard to turn. Very true. To give you some perspective: It's painful to turn these bindings without a thick glove on.

Another minor complaint might be that it's impossible to open the toe with a pole tip. Not the most important thing, but it'd be nice.

But overall: bomber.
Reply from Jim
I use the other end of the pole, the handle, to open the binding. I don't want to scratch the pretty anodized finish.

I’ve had a pair of these under BD rebranding for two seasons now on an 87mm ski w/ Alien 3.0 boots. All my other setups have Dynafit and Plum race bindings, but ATK is now my new favorite, as everything is just so basic yet nicely refined: toe lever operates smoothly, ski crampon slot is easy to attach and has just the right tolerances for crampons, additional riser height is clever and effective (albeit not much higher), and the steel pins avoid wear yet have only a trivial weight penalty compared to the very lightest race models.
Reply from Jim
Agree. I use the Trofeos for touring only. The Trofeos are the easiest tech bindings to enter I've used.

Risers are so archaic! Who needs them? With the range of motion of modern AT boots, risers are pointless. Do you wear high heels when hiking uphill on steep trails? Should you? No. That's why you have ankle joints.
Reply from Jonathan S
I was so reluctant at first to switch over to race bindings for regular touring -- how would I cope without a far higher riser position?
Answer is, ehh, no big deal.
But every now & then a little bit extra can help, so the Trofeo 180-degree is a nice plus for those rare occasions, yet with zero weight penalty or other complications.
Otherwise, definitely amusing to pass tourers on regular gear who are constantly switching back & forth between various too-high riser positions...
