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.

Questions & Reviews
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!
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.
