Dynafit Speed Turn 2.0 Binding

Free shipping

With the young Speed Turn already turning 2.0, we officially say goodbye to the Dynafit 5-hole toe pattern. This updated iteration of the Speed turn features a simpler toe piece modeled after the Radical toes. With an elongated mounting pattern and forged aluminum and steel construction, the toe is stable and durable. While it is missing the Power Tower step-in guides from the Radical series, the toe promises to be equally rugged. The heel piece is the Classic hand-turner, with reliable stops for each of the riser heights and ski mode. The binding has fully adjustable lateral and vertical release functions, as well as an uphill lock. The Speed Turn 2.0 is the newest quintessential Dynafit binding.

  • Fully adjustable heel pieces have a release value range from 4-10 on the Dynafit scale.
  • Forged aluminum toe frame is a simplified design with a 4-hole drill pattern.
  • Heel piece can be adjusted fore/aft +/- 11.5mm to fit three full sizes of boots.
  • Simple rotational heel pieces have two riser positions plus flat-on-ski mode.
  • Toe lever features both locked uphill and unlocked ski positions.
  • Crampon attachments included that accept Dynafit and similar ‘pons.

Update 2021/22: The Speed Turn 2.0 has updated the color and added a leash attachment point.

Question from Kjetil
There is no way to mount brakes on these? Only option is leashes?
Answer from jbo
Hi Kjetil, Dynafit does not have an option but Kreuzspitze makes an aftermarket speed turn brake system.

Question from Nick
Does the toe piece use the same 30 x 39 hole pattern as the speed turn 2.0 toe piece? And heel the same 32/36 x 52.5 hole pattern as the turn 2.0 heel?
I know this is labelled as a turn 2.0 but I bought turn 2.0 toes little while back and they look different than the one in picture. I have inserts on my ski so would like these to just drop in place. Thanks!
Answer from jbo
Hi Nick, Dynafit has refined this binding over time but the hole pattern has remained constant.

Super solid affordable backcountry adventure bindings. I bought these for my Navis Freebirds after spending a couple seasons on Frischi Vipecs. I wanted something affordable, reasonably light, and durable. These ticked all the boxes. I actually prefer the downhill feel over the older Frischis.

I ski them with Hoji Free 130s and have skied them in the resort a couple times, carved on groomers, hucked off small pillows, crashed a decent amount, and skied all sorts of terrain from steep couloirs to powdery trees to spring volcanos. They have always released when they needed to, and I have had only one or two pre-releases (only on incredibly terrible, refrozen chunky snow where I basically expected to pop out because of how horrible it was). Zero durability issues.

There are three main downsides to this binding that I would highlight. None are dealbreakers for me, and one can be fixed pretty easily.

1) The ramp angle is pretty extreme at 14.5mm. I do notice it, and I definitely recommend toe shims.

2) Icing on the heel piece. In wet, sticky snow, you will get buildup on the heel when in the flat tour mode, giving you unwanted heel risers. The snow sticks to the adjustment track.

3) For how cheap this binding is, you give up easy-to-use heel risers (you can learn to spin the binding with a pole but there is a trick to it and it's not super easy), and it's heavier than many other options from Plum, ATK, Dynafit, etc. that offer the same features. Also, the second heel riser is absurdly high and I never use it.

I think the niche for this binding is either long, committing adventures in the mountains where you need an absolutely rock-solid, proven binding with minimal moving parts, or for someone on a tight budget who wants a reliable, reasonably lightweight tech binding for general alpine touring.

Sarah H (downright abused product)
These were my first tech bindings and they made the transition a dream! I just love the weight savings and ease of use and I feel like I've sacrificed nothing. I got into AT with a Marker Baron frame binding, as heavy as possible and I was pretty resistant to upgrading, tech bindings seemed flimsy and finicky in my imagination, but my fiance surprised me for Christmas by secretly mounting Speed Turns to my skis and I'm so glad he did because now that I've skied in them hundreds of times, I love them. Stepping in is definitely a skill but the binding does all it can to support you, enclosing gently and easily (my basis for comparison is that I've got Marker Alpinists now on different skis and they have a tighter mechanism that needs a lot of oomph then kind of snaps closed). The risers are super easy to operate. I've skied these in every kind of backcountry condition (and some resort skin laps) and I've never felt a loss in performance.

Question from Gordon porter
Does the speed turn 2.0 heel have u-spring or independent pins? Also does the speed radical have the same heel piece only with lifters? Thanks.
Answer from jbo
Hi Gordon, the pins are independent and work with a release value adjustment. Yes, the Speed Rad heel is similar but with risers, and it also has a different toe piece with step-in guides.

David S (downright abused product)
Ive have the speed turn classic version going on 10 years. Very durable and function like new with occasional lube. This binding has changed very little over the decades and is a staple of the Dynafit lineup.The only thing I don't like about these bindings is the pin height delta is over 1 cm which for me feels like bit much.

Question from James Verinis
Hey. I a have a pair of scarpa F1's from 2019/2020 and I hope to mount these bindings on a pair of old black diamond ascent skis (they're pretty narrow at the waist as far as skis are now, like 2.25 inches). I just want an inexpensive tech binding to get my wife to skin up some small bc hills with me in New England. We ended up with a second pair of free pair of F1's that fit her and you know how it is when you get something for free- you end up spending a lot of money to put the free thing into action. What do you think of the set up? As long as it works, I'm good.
Answer from Ian C
Hey James, sounds like a gritty New England setup ;-)

I am not familiar with those skis but nothing leaps out to me as a red flag. The F1 and speed turn 2.0 are a classic pairing to have your wife happily jumping into the backcountry!

Question from Eli
I'm putting together a new set for the winter. Voile hypercharger, dynafit hoji pro tour boot. My question is this: Assuming the boots/bindings are compatible, would they be a good fit? I tend to ski on the aggressive side (hence the boot), and I'm just wondering if these bindings can hold up to some high impact abuse. I'm hoping for a middle ground binding between the beast and the speedfit. The beasts were heavy but bomber, while the speedfits were light but felt unstable to me. Would this binding be the middle ground while maintaining the lightweight feel??
Answer from Zak M
Hi Eli,
The Speed Turn is a super durable binding. The toepiece is rock-solid, you will be hard-pressed to break it. The guts of the heel are time-tested and true, used in many of Dynafit's widely popular bindings. You will notice the weight savings compared to the Beast, and the heel is indeed more solid, reliable, and confidence-inspiring than the Speedfit for more aggressive skiers.

I should also mention that your boots will be perfectly compatible with the Speed Turn 2 Binding.

Great binding for a great price! It has good retention while also releasing when you want it to. Only downsides to the binding is the twist heel which takes some getting used to and its weight.

Question from Luke
I currently ski a pair of voile v6s with fritschi tecton bindings. I am considering removing the tectons and replacing them with a pair of dynafit speed turn 2s - I'm thinking this set up will become my 'fitness' ski and/or my rock ski for early and late season skiing. I'm also eager to lighten/ simplify this setup, and feel that the tecton is a bit overkill for this ski. However, I do already think that the v6 is rather soft. Most of the time, I love this about the ski. In conditions that allow fast skiing however, I really wish the ski were stiffer and more damp.

My question is: to what degree does the tecton style heel piece stiffen or dampen the set up? If I mount the speed turn 2 binding onto the v6, will it change the skis characteristics significantly, and how? I'm guessing the ski will be less damp? Will it be noticeable? If so, is this the case for all tech bindings with tech style heel pieces? Or are there some that mitigate this?

Thank you!
Answer from Jeff
Luke, a bit of a thought-provoking question. But the bindings don't have any significant effect on the ski. A zero gap binding like the Tectons will absorb some vibrations from the ski to your boot. But no damping effect to the ski performance. The V6 is a softer Powder loving ski, and nothing to change that.

Question from Lars Tomasson
I measured the heel slot on the Speed Turn 2.0 and I think it only has +/-11mm of adjustment not +/-12.5mm as you state. Do you concur?
Answer from jbo
Hi Lars, yeah it is probably only 23mm total.

Question from Steve
Would these be good bindings for an intermediate skier to use at the resort for uphill skinning (not real touring)?
Answer from Zak M
Hey Steve, the Speed Turns are a great option for an intermediate skier or someone who is looking for a very simple bomber binding. You can always go lighter, but overall these bindings would be a good combination of both durability and price.

Ben (used product a few times)
These are my first pair of “lean” bindings after making the jump from Radical 2s. My first day out on them I took them for lift laps at a resort to really give them a test skiing. After a half day of skiing them harder than I had planned on groomers (unlocked) I have gained all of the confidence I needed for anything I’m willing to throw at them in the backcountry. I’ve skinned about 8k of vert on them so far and love the lower weight compared to my other setups. I still need to practice using a pole to switch riser heights and have been reaching down for now.

Question from Andrew
Too many Dynafit bindings- can't keep them all straight! I believe this is what was on my buddy's skis I borrowed and liked them. But he had brakes. Are brakes usable with these (it appears not). Which model is closest that works with brakes? Thanks-
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Andrew! Yeah, there are a ton! Chances are good if you had to rotate the heel to access a new riser height, but it also had brakes, you were on the Vertical which is discontinued. If you had to spin the heel piece once and then spring loaded risers would flip into place, but it also had brakes, chances are good you had the original Radical ST/FT. There isn't really a direct equivalent of either of those bindings at the moment as the Radical series has been replaced with the Radical 2.0 and the Vertical has been discontinued. Fill out our binding finder to see if we can dial this search in a bit better.

Just bought another pair for some new skis and noticed that the new version with the black top plate on the heelpiece differs from the older version with the silver top plate in two distinct ways. First off there's no add on nubbin but I think the total height is the same as the silver version with the nubbin. Secondly, the hole for your pole tip is significantly larger. This makes it work better with carbon poles, which often have a larger diameter tip. The older silver version was a tight fit with some poles but worked great with my BD traverse poles. The newer version is a tad harder to turn with my poles, but still workable. In short, if you have carbon poles go with the new version and if you have aluminum poles go with the older version with the silver top plate.

Raymond H (used product regularly)
Just one point, the lower Radical toe "pin height" on the Speed Turn 2.0 means this new Speed Turn won't work with my La Sportiva Spectre boots. Too much rocker in the boot toe, so heel of boot doesn't safely touch ski surface in heel flat walk mode.
For now I am using a Vertical ST toe, with the Vertical nylon toe shim to get "pins" high enough for my Spectres.
So if you want to use these Speed Turn 2.0s with Spectres, you will need B&D shims.
I still think this is a classic, reliable binding, and heel towers are easy to turn with a ski pole, which helps at transitions..The binding works great with my Scarpa F-1s (new ones).

Just wanted to point out that B&D ski crampon dId not fit the new binding! It fits the old model just fine. It's not a binding problem of course. The binding is great! Never had a pre-release and severally very timely releases.
Reply from Charles P
FYI with a little bit of strategic filing the crampon fits just fine. That's what B&D advised when I contacted them about this. They also said they'll do the filing for you if you note the binding when ordering.

Goatroper (used product regularly)
Great, simple, dependable binding. However, the interface between ski pole and heel piece to adjust riser height is horribly designed. If ur pole end is not perfect diameter or collects any ice, the margin to quickly transition is taken away and potentiates profuse profanity.
B&D does sell heel plate and riser cones for $50-60ish.
Reply from jbo
Hi Goatroper, the riser isn't specifically designed to be operated with a ski pole, but it can work with some models.
Reply from troy h
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, go go gadget arm.
I guess these kind of "features" from an otherwise immaculate design, are what keep B&D in business.

Question from Colin
Hey Skimo:

The "words" states that the BSL adjustment is 12.5mm, but the "specs" state that it is 25mm... Which is correct? I'm guessing that 12.5mm is the correct value.

I'm debating between Speed Turn 2.0's and Speed Radicals, and probably leaning towards the Speed Radicals. I gather that the Speed Radicals have a BSL adjustment of 22mm, and if the Speed Turn's have 12.5mm or 25mm means they are either not worth considering for myself or a strong contender.

Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Colin, thanks for reaching out! The adjustment range is +/-12.5mm, totaling 25mm. The baseplate on the Speed Turn 2.0 and Speed Radical are the same except the Speed Radical has a rotation stop which limits the fore/aft adjustment by 3mm. They're both fantastic bindings, especially considering the price, so you can't really go wrong. It really just depends on if you want to spin the heel each time to access a new riser or spin it once and use a pole or your hand to flip risers.
Answer from Lars
I measured my Speed Turn 2 bindings and it was +/-11mm which works out to 22mm the same as the radicals.
