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. With two versions of this binding available, each with a lateral release range of 5-10 or 6-12, Dynafit has created a lightweight, reliable binding that can accomodate a wide range of skiers. Please note that while the lateral releases can be adjusted, the vertical release remains fixed. Last but not least, Dynafit managed to include two risers (just rotate the heel 180º), and they updated the mounting pattern from three holes to a more stable 4-hole pattern.
*** Brakes are not included and sold as an optional accessory.
Update 2019/20: Dynafit now calls this binding the Dynafit Superlite 175 Z10 / Z12 and are offering it with two release ranges, each being 5-10 and 6-12. They also updated the paint job, and now offer this binding in a nice yellow and black option.
