If “VO2 Max,” “heart rate monitor,” or “I wish I had done more base training” are frequent phrases you utter, then the PDG Binding likely has a place in your quiver. The same technology as the top-end Low Tech Race 2.0, the PDG is Dynafit’s “budget” race and training binding. The same lightweight toe piece found on the fan-favorite Superlite 2.0 and LTR 2.0 is employed here, this time with an auto-locking toe lever (which is replaceable if you’d prefer a manual locking lever). The heel piece is a descendent of Pierre Gignoux’s Ultimate, one of the lightest and simplest heel pieces on the market. Replacing the titanium heel pins from the Low Tech Race 2.0 with steel pins raised the weight a negligible five grams while lowering the price tag a non-negligible amount. This, of course, also improves the durability since steel is less susceptible to wear. The Dynafit PDG binding, coming to a podium near you.
- Built from Forged 7075 Aerospace Aluminum, carbon, and steel.
- Ice-breaker pins on the toe ensure reliable performance no matter the conditions.
- Proven toe piece design is lightweight and features an auto-locking toe lever, but is easily replaced with a separately purchased manual locking lever for ISMF compliance.
- Symmetrically or asymmetrically matches the PDG 3.0 ski.

Questions & Reviews
The only brake option for this would be the Kreuzspitze Tech Brake. It slides into the crampon receptor and is held in place with a small turn buckle you need to mount under foot. A rad little brake that you stash in your pack/pocket on the way up and slides on easily during your transition from up to down.
I'm 5'4" 150lbs and I use these on Atomic Ultimate 65 WC 2016 163cm Skis with Atomic Backland Ultimate Boots.
