Like the pin-up girls from the 1940s, we think the Pin-Up EVO bindings from Hagan are very, very sexy. To start, these bindings are teasingly dressed up in metal and POM, providing an exceptionally stout construction at a very reasonable weight. Complementing this hard-working construction is the Elastic Response System, which gives the heel room to move fore and aft, keeping your ..

The Hagan Core 12 Pro has been a crowd favorite for those wanting a highly functional binding at a minimal weight. Not ones to sit idle, the folks at Hagan have been devising ways to better this already proven design. Their answer comes in the form of the Hagan Core 12 Evo, which we think could be characterized as evolutionary rather than revolutionary. To start, Hagan kept the sam..

Among a sea of tech bindings with subtle distinctions, the Ski Trab Titan Vario.2’s singular titanium toe rod and gapless heel instantly stand out. After a few seconds of learning how to step in, its general effect is to instantly win over a new convert to this rare Italian import. The principal drawback of this binding’s design was that its delights were limited to heavier, or at ..

Ski Trab calls the Gara Titan “the binding used by champions” and we tend to agree. This tour de force draws from a number of design features at the cutting edge of skimo race rigs, starting with an ultra-reliable titanium toe spring that resists snow buildup. Each toe wing flexes independently in response to twisting boot movement, providing unparalleled elastic retention among bi..

When the phrase “low tech” is spoken around here, we’re immediately transported back to the tech binding renaissance of the early 90s that saw Dynafit introduce many category-defining products to the market. A descendant from this product lineage was the Superlite 2.0, which with its excellent lateral elasticity, adjustable lateral release, and fixed vertical release, satisfied mos..

The age of fixed release race bindings is over; the time of the Mezzalama binding has come. Behold: a race-weight binding that features brakes AND fully adjustable lateral and vertical releases! While not unheard of, adjustable release race bindings are exceedingly rare, which is why our minds were blown when we got our first glimpse of the Mezzalama series. With the ability to set..

Safety-minded skimo athletes have historically been faced with a bit of a dilemma, relying on standardized u-springs with uncertain or unspecific release behavior. However, with the invention of the Mezzalama binding, Dynafit has eliminated any of this lingering guesswork, introducing a fully adjustable binding at a true race weight. Incorporating aluminum, carbon, and high-tech sy..

Dynafit has done it again and made a good thing even better with the Dynafit DNA binding.

What if lighter doesn't have to mean fewer features, and what if race bindings were synonymous with trustworthy durability? Now, thanks to the new Dynafit DNA Plus binding, it doesn't and they are. The DNA Plus is held together by aluminum, carbon, and steel - just like airplanes. Don't be concerned about the materials driving up the weight because Dynafit managed to actually bring..

Dynafit's Low Tech Race binding...now with brakes! While that may not sound exciting to racers used to skiing without brakes, you better get excited if you want to race in ISMF sanctioned races going forward. With rules phasing in starting in the 2021/22 season, you may need to tick the brake box on a gear check. It's also not the worst idea to have brakes if you're doing hot laps ..

No serious race binding company fails to offer adjustment plates. Grizzly is serious so they offer some machined aluminum plates on which to mount the heels of the GR 98, Olympic, and other bindings. This allows you to use multiple boots with your otherwise unadjustable bindings. All plates are sold in pairs with adjustment bolts and nuts included. Speed Plates weigh 28 grams..

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 ..

Picturesque ski lines have a nasty habit of often being located far away from the trailhead. This unfortunate (or fortunate) reality then necessitates careful gear selection to achieve maximal performance while keeping weight to a minimum. Based in Chamonix, the folks at Plum are no strangers to this principle, and therefore designed the Summit 12. Like its sibling, the Summit 12 S..

As race bindings got lighter and lighter over the years, your options for release values started shrinking. In other words, you got a fixed release system and it either worked for your or it didn’t. The engineering maniacs at ATK were the first to reverse that trend, offering multiple spring strengths in the Trofeo, for example. Similarly, in the uber-light titanium realm, ATK birt..

An enhanced version of the Revolution WC binding, the Revolution Brake WC is designed for those seeking the podium, albeit with an insurance policy in case their high-speed straight line doesn’t go quite according to plan: ski brakes. This also makes the binding compliant with ISMF races that require brakes. To help save valuable seconds while the clock is ticking, ATK uses their s..

The ATK Crest 10 reminds us of that saying, “you can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Except, with these bindings, you actually can…metaphorically, anyways (don’t eat your bindings). They prove that you can have all the features AND go lightweight too. The Crest 10’s paltry weight and three walk modes won’t inhibit you on the up, no matter the size of the ascent. Meanwhile, ski br..

DPS skis have been spotted dropping big cliffs and charging big faces, so why shouldn't their bindings be just as capable? Don't worry, with the DPS R14, they are.

“Embrace what makes you different…” We here at Skimo Co are as big a fan of individualism as we are of “feel good” Disney quotes. As it turns out, Hagan shares our sentiment. The Hagan Core 12 kicked things off by featuring a front brake design. While the aesthetic was unique, the functionality of the design won many skiers over with its ability to provide braking while in tour mod..

The Revolution World Cup binding by ATK is their ultimate race binding - pushing double digits of grams per ski. But while other ultralight race bindings go as simple as possible to reach that coveted 100g mark, ATK rose to the challenge and produced a race binding that is competitively lightweight AND packed full of ATK's patented technology. With that in mind, which features shou..

By combining lightweight reliable U-Springs, adjustable lateral rele..

Historically, the lack of backcountry equipment designed for children was a convenient excuse to leave them behind for some much-needed alone time in the backcountry. Unfortunately (fortunately?), ATK is blowing this excuse out of the water with the introduction of the ATK Candy 5. While bindings designed for smaller skiers traditionally have been relatively clunky affairs, the Can..

Small and light skiers know it can be hard to find a touring binding that meets all your needs without infringing on your safety.

The fully adjustable lateral and vertical release values ca..

At Kreuzspitze it was decided that they really wanted a binding that they could use for some quick pre-work laps in the local mountains, take up to a race in Bormio, or maybe bring along for some serious mountaineering in the Swiss Alps without worrying about having to fix it in the field, or replace it at the end of every other season. Unsatisfied with the options before them, the..

Sometimes, a binding is so well made and popular that the manufacturer has no choice but to make it again. Such was the origin of the Oazo 6 when skiers demanded that they be able to ski the Oazo safely with a lower release value, and now popular demand has squeezed yet another iteration of the Oazo family out of Plum. Introducing the Oazo 4; a slightly less Oazoy Oazo than previou..

Heading out into the mountains to lose yourself in a winter wonderland can be blissful, but locating a ski (after you yardsale into that same winter wonderland because you were messing with your Megasend Footy Cam 3000 instead of skiing) is the opposite of blissful (tortured, maybe?).

The beautiful thing about backcountry skiing is the freedom the method of travel allows. With some skis and a bit of patience, a competent and fit skier can paint the snowy canvas however they want. On the descent, having the freedom to take some risks while skiing fast and playfully can be a truly magical experience and sometimes it may be worth carrying a few more grams uphill. I..
