Dynafit calls the Superlite 2.0 a revolution instead of an evolution. If you like brakes then you might be inclined to agree, since the new version is the first race-weight binding with an (optional) integrated brake. It maintains the fully adjustable lateral-release of the original Superlite that prompted many skiers to start using race bindings for every day touring. More aggressive folks may appreciate the ability to turn the lateral release value up to 12 (versus 10 in the previous incarnation), while the forward release value remains fixed. The heel features two riser positions when rotated 180°. Last but not least, the mounting pattern was increased from a tripod to a more stable 4-hole pattern so you can really get after it.
*** Brakes are not included and sold as an optional accessory.
Update 2019/20: Dynafit now calls this binding the Dynafit Superlite 175 - Z10 / Z12, but other than that these are the same great bindings with a new paint job.
