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. Much like their beloved touring skis, DPS made sure the R14 can take care of business on the downhill while being light enough that multiple laps aren't out of the question. The high release value of 14 keeps you attached during high-impact landings or jarring turns. Similarly, the heel features 12mm of elastic travel so that those big moves aren't so harsh. A freeride spacer adds support and stiffness under the heel. And for the skiers with multiple boot setups, there's 25mm of adjustability so your options aren't limited. Stick with the DPS theme - ski hard without compromise!
- Release values between 8-14 accommodate aggressive skiers.
- Alu Alloys, Stainless Steel, and POM materials are durable to handle whatever you can.
- 25mm of adjustment means you can match the boot to the day.
- Five different walk modes give you plenty of options for getting up.

Any safety issue I should be worried about? Knee troubles? Reliable releases?
ATK actually manufactures DPS bindings so they are going to be identical except for the included toe shims in the DPS R14.
