Like its little brother, the Dynafit ST Rotation 12 is one of the few tech bindings that has met the elusive DIN standards for release consistency and performance under pressure. This is due in large part to the rotating toe piece from which the Rotation binding gets its name. The gapless heel piece is spring-loaded to reduce any change in release value throughout the flex of the ski. The toe piece sits on a rotating baseplate that works in conjunction with the burly heel-piece so if you load the skis up in a turn and the boot wanders away from the center-line, the toe piece stays closed. This means less chance of pre-release. To simplify: this version of the Dynafit ST Rotation is all black and goes to 12 so you can look good while charging with reckless abandon in chunky snow on big skis.
Update 2019/20: The toe lever got a cool new paint job!
