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.
