DPS R14 Binding


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.
  • Elastic Response System provides 12mm of cushion for the rippin' and droppin'.
  • Cam Release System ensures a precise vertical release.
  • Easy Entry System makes entering your toe pieces, well, easy.
  • Snow Pack Proof feature prevents snow/ice/debris buildup in toe pieces so you can be sure you're secure.
  • Uphill Hardness Variator means you can adjust toe piece locking pressure.
  • Magneto Heel Flaps stabilize the heel risers for less annoyance while touring.
  • Freeride Spacer included to support the heel of your boot.
  • 4mm toe shim included to enable a balanced flat stance.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Andrew M
What are the toe shims for?
Answer from Brett S
Hey Andrew, the toe shim is to reduce the vertical difference between the toe and heel. In this case, the toe shim will reduce the delta/difference from 11.5mm to 7.5mm.

Question from Jeremy Gordon
Thanks for responding. Just one more question . . . I'm kinda nervous about this being my first true tech binding. Ski aggressive, but moving from shifts.

Any safety issue I should be worried about? Knee troubles? Reliable releases?

Answer from jbo
Hi Jeremy, thanks for the is rather involved! For an in-depth look at the difference between alpine and tech bindings, I would start with our article on tech binding release. If you're hucking everything in sight and/or crashing a lot, the R14 may not be the way to go. Reach out directly if you want to go deeper.

Question from Jeremy
Just wondering how close this is to the ATK 14? Thanks!
Answer from Ian C
Hey Jeremy,

ATK actually manufactures DPS bindings so they are going to be identical except for the included toe shims in the DPS R14.
