We could all use a multi-functional ski binding that is lightweight and simple. Dynafit has the hook-up with the Superlite 150 binding. If you're looking for the simplicity of a race binding, but maybe with just a little more panache, this elegant piece of engineering will end up in your shopping cart. The Superlite 150 is a thoughtfully designed ski touring binding with an adjustable lateral release value that weighs as much (or as little) as a pure race binding. With optional brakes, multiple riser heights, and even a flat-on-ski mode, this binding singlehandedly fulfills a wide niche in the touring community for adaptability and simplicity at a low weight. The heel is entirely metal to help mitigate any breakable parts on the rear of the binding, and it has been built to optimize ramp angle and power transfer. In English, that means you will have more balance and control over your edges on uneven or icy terrain, without straining your quads. The Dynafit Superlite 150 binding is a great choice for fast and light touring, and skiers looking for a binding that can hold up to a variety of missions.
- Wide lateral release value range of 4-13 for skiers of all sizes and ambitions.
- Z-6 U Spring sold separately that reduces the fixed forward retention for lighter weight skiers.
- Two climbing positions let you adapt to the steepness of the terrain via heel rotation.
- Rotate sideways for a flat-on-ski mode for those long approaches to snag a big line.
- Optional Superlite brake and heel adjustment plate let you customize for different usages.
- Ice breaker pins clear ice and debris out of toe sockets with a quick rotation.
- Included crampon adapter (+5g) works with all Dynafit style ski crampons.
- Included leash ring is mounted under the toe or can be thrown away (-2g).

Questions & Reviews
Slightly expensive but overall a nice weight and features.
My frustration comes from the frequency the toe piece gets snow under it, which often prevents even non-locked walk mode. This is super annoying and happens very frequently. I've skied many other toe pieces and this toe suffers from this the most.
Won’t go flat if you use the brakes.
Can’t use the heal risers without reaching down to turn them by hand; try that with an overnight pack on your back. No way to use your pole tips to turn to engage the risers and hard the smack with pole handle to spin the heal piece. One of the springs on my heal risers broke within ten days of use. There are better bindings in this category: ATK

What about this ski set?

Cho oyu 182cm
Dynafit race manu
Scarpa F1 Carbon
Looks like a great setup! A few thoughts. I noticed that you are coming out of the Scarpa F1. The Scarpa F1 LT has a very different fit. While the F1 has a medium last width and pretty average instep height, the F1 LT is generally pretty low volume, with a narrow last width, and a lower instep height. Also, one more thing to mention. Scarpa states that driving a ski that is wider than 85mm will void the warranty on the F1 LT. Plenty of folks drive skis wider than the 85mm mark using the F1 LT, but something to keep in mind! If you have further questions on boots, I would recommend filling out a Boot Fitter.
Otherwise, the Dynafit Superlite 150 is a great pairing with the Dynafit Blacklight 95. The Blacklight 95 is a stiffer ski, with a wider shovel for deeper snow conditions, as well as good camber underfoot for when things get firm. Based on your dimensions, I would go with the 178cm length.
Without having the skis in front of me, it is hard to be 100 percent certain. However, based on the differing hole patterns, you will almost certainly need to move your position on the ski going from a Dynafit Speed Radical to the Dynafit Superlite 150.
If you click on the 'superlite brake' hyperlink in this listing it will take you to the dynafit brakes page. You'll want to go with the superlite brake in a 90mm brake width.
