Nothing goes better with those smile-inducing DPS skis than a pair of DPS bindings! From the factories of legendary binding manufacturer ATK, comes the DPS R10 binding. Much like the acclaimed Pagoda skis, the R10 is also fully featured without being a burden. Lightweight construction with three walk modes means you'll get to the top without a hitch. And the downhill? Well, let's just say the 10mm of heel elastic travel, ski brakes, and adjustable release values ensure you're thinking about your line, not if your bindings will do their job. The R-10 makes good use of ATK's Cam Release System that limits boot torsion - that's fancy speak for saying this binding will release precisely when it's needed. If you're skiing on DPS skis, then you already know that "capable" and "fun" aren't mutually exclusive - so why not extend that to your bindings as well? The DPS R10 gets the job done in a fully-featured package without the heft.
- Alu 7075, Stainless Steel, and POM materials used to prioritize sturdiness without a weight penalty.
- Two heel risers plus flat mode make sure you're skinning at the right height at all times.
- U.H.V.® (Up-hill Hardness Variator) System allows you to change how firmly the toe piece locks onto your boot.
- Included Freeride Spacers attached to the heel piece and offer a more connected feel (2022/23+).
- 10mm of travel in the Elastic Response System in case you bottom out on a landing.
- Cam Release System is featured in the heel piece for consistent vertical release.
- Easy Entry System makes stepping in less of a headache.
- 5-10 release value depending on your weight and skier type.
- 20mm of adjustment allows for multiple pairs of boots.
- Show your love for DPS!
Update 2022/23: DPS is now including a toe shim to increase the toe height and an attachable stomp pad (aka "Freeride Spacer") to eliminate space under the heel of the boot. This added an optional 54 grams.

Questions & Reviews
You can certainly put the DPS R10 on a DPS Pagoda Tour 112, I would go with the 108mm wide brakes, which could require a smidge of stretching, but will be a great fit. The R10 is a great way to get brakes, plenty of risers, adjustable release values, and elastic travel in the heel in a lightweight package.
Also, great ski choice. The DPS Pagoda Tour 112 is an awesome ski for those deep days. The RP shape and wide waist width will have you grinning ear to ear, and the construction will hold up to seasons of hard skiing.
However, I would not pair an Scarpa F1 LT with this ski and binding. It certainly punches above its weight class on the way down, but 112mm underfoot is a lot to ask of a 1000g boot. You will not be getting everything out of the ski, and it will likely wear your F1 LTs out quickly.
