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 or opting for a heavier binding with more consistent release values. However, with the invention of the Mezzalama binding, Dynafit has eliminated lingering release value guesswork, introducing a fully adjustable binding at true race weight. Incorporating aluminum, carbon, and high-tech synthetic materials into a seriously advanced construction, the Mezzalama clocks in at a weight similar to Dynafit’s lightest race bindings of yesteryear. Besides the characteristically simple operation of a race binding, included crampon receptors also open the possibility of venturing off-piste where crunchy snow conditions exist. For skimo athletes who prefer the flexibility of adjustable release values, hop into the Mezzalama and try it for yourself!

  • Carbon fiber heel riser offers superb tensile strength and stiffness at a ridiculously low weight.
  • Lateral and vertical releases are fully adjustable between 5-10, inviting such creative binding settings as 5.0, 7.5, or 9¾.
  • Optional adjustment plate is available for compatibility across different boot sole lengths.
  • Crampon receptor (+7g) is included which you can optionally mount to use ski crampons.
  • Braked version (Mezzalama+) is also available.

Question from Jeff F Schreier
I currently have the Dynafit Low Tech Race 2.0 Auto-Lock Binding from 2019 mounted to the Movement Race Pro 71 Ski 2020/21. I'm 6'2" 205 and the LTR heel piece tends to rotate sideways unpredictably (think like while skating hard), then have to rotate it back and put ski back on. Its not a great experience. Would this Mezzalama or something else be possible to mount to the same ski with the same BSL or are the hole patterns too close? Any other bindings/heel pieces you would recommend that could be mounted on that ski to fix the problem?
Answer from jbo
Hi Jeff, it may be worth trying to tighten the rear mounting screw. It's possible the Mezzalama heels would fix the problem since you can adjust the release, but the toe pattern is unfortunately different. There are certainly other heels out there as well that could help. Send us an email to discuss!

Question from Benoit
I am wondering if I can use these bindings on Atomic Backland UL 85 ?
I am familiar with race bindings (on race skis). Do you think these Dynafit Mezzalama could safely replace tour bindings (such as ATK Haute Route) on wider skis ? I use Gignoux Black boots with both race and tour skis and like the idea of using light stuff... Thanks!
Answer from Carlos M
Hi Benoit,

Yes, that would be a great pairing! The Mezzalama is a very good binding and the adjustable release works as intended. No issue using it on that ski at all, and it would pair well with your Gignoux boots.
