Need help choosing a binding?

Check out our backcountry binding finder! In order to maximize your fun and safety, it's critical to match a touring binding to your size, ability, equipment, and goals. We've built a tool to streamline the process.

The “Race Plus” category is growing neatly. That is, alpine touring ski bindings that are more featureful than race bindings but more streamlined than traditional touring designs. The Plum Oazo embodies that trend with a slick set of features that have it sitting right at the 200-gram mark (after which you start to feel the weight every step). The sturdy toe is a proven design that..

Many casual skiers believe that lightweight ski-touring bindings must sacrifice some performance. While we continue to debunk that myth, G3 may have just ended the discussion altogether with the ZED binding. With the proven ION as the foundation, the designers started trimming the fat to minimize mass without compromising ski or release performance. The ZED is the first “gapless..

Dynafit has taken a classic 90's expression and slapped it onto the Radical ST binding to let you know how amazing it truly is. Note that Radical should be capitalized, which is pretty much an invite for you to get Rad, something you can very much do with this stout yet lower weight binding. A flick of the wrist (or pole) has you changing riser heights on the fly for those steep sk..

Made in France, the Pika is a lightweight AT bind..

Rather than integrate the brakes into the bindings, Atomic decided to make it easy on you. Manufactured in five different sizes as a modular accessory to the Backland Pure binding, the brakes sit directly underneath the baseplate of the heel piece.

Plum invested 5 more grams into the ol’ reliable race 145 binding. The primary return on that investment is a toe lever that is smoother and easier to operate. Gone are the fiddly-to-mount striker plates that previously decided whether you were in walk mode or ski mode. The lock-stops are machined into the toe and feel buttery to operate. The lever itself was widened and smoothed o..

Lighter and more compact than the standard Dynafit crampon, the Speed is built for just that. The crampons have mean looking teeth and more cutouts to save weight.

It takes up less space than a standard crampon so is great for rac..

Dynafit calls the Superlite 2.0 a revolution instead of an evolution.
