Carbon fiber bindings? “Why not,” says mad boot-scientist Pierre Gignoux, now working with the mad binding-scientists at Dynafit. Designed to work (only) with the RC1 boot, the binding easily wins the weight crown. At 66 grams without screws, it is borderline ridiculous. Operating without springs, entry into the binding requires ramped notches cut into certain boots made by Pierre. The ramps force open the pins just enough to get in. Exit involves pushing (with your hand only!) the lateral carbon fiber protrusions. Yes, that means there is a left and a right binding. Feel free to name them.

With this binding https://www.dynafit.com/dna-binding-by-pierre-gignoux-08-0000048773
I would not recommend skiing these with anything but a PG boot, unless you are willing to put in quite a bit of stressful work on expensive items. The fact that a binding can be 66g is incredible, perhaps carbon toe pieces, and boots with ramps under the tech fittings are the future.
is this heel also plastic like the LTR2.0 or is it metal of some kind?
