In touring bindings, features and weight seem to have an inverse relationship. This is not the case with the Dynafit Blacklight binding. Packed with sensible features without tipping the scales, the Blacklight is a workhouse that will giddy up on just about any setup. Looking for adjustable lateral release? The Blacklight has you covered. Need a reasonable number of risers? Check. What about switching between pairs of boots, or breaking out the ski crampons come spring? Check and check. The Blacklight binding even has you covered if you are a brake person.
This binding will likely outlast the skis they are mounted on, backed by Dynafit’s legendary lifetime guarantee and forged aluminum, stainless steel, and high-tech synthetic construction. Whether you are just getting into the sport or a seasoned veteran with a deep quiver of skis, the Blacklight Binding from Dynafit is a worthy companion.

Questions & Reviews
Not sure if you bought these from us, but we do list the minimum riser height as "nearly flat" and not truly flat in our specs. It may also be possible to use an unofficial flat mode by rotating the binding 90 degrees, assuming you have the non-braked version displayed here. This could be worth a try for long, flat, approaches although there is no detent for it.
As far as flipping the risers with a pole, we played around with it in the shop, and it is possible to flip both risers up by using the grip on your pole to hook under the higher riser and pulling upward. Then, you can push the high riser down if you just want the first level. This works best if you have a pole with a more hook-shaped grip, but I can imagine making it work with a number of different poles. Hopefully this works for you!
