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.

  • Optional stopper system accepts optional brakes in 75, 90, and 105mm widths.
  • Lateral release can be adjusted between 7-12 to match your size & ability.
  • Two risers let you climb the steeps efficiently after rotating the heel piece.
  • Proven toe pieces design has both unlocked-skiing and locked-uphill modes.
  • 4-hole mounting pattern offers more stability and hold than previous Superlites.

* Please note that the brakes are not included and sold as an optional accessory.

Question from Matthew
 
Would the black version (DIN 12) be a bad choice for someone who skis around a 7 DIN? I only weigh 130 pounds so I'm curious if this binding would be dangerous in terms of not releasing under certain circumstance given my low weight.

Answer from Nate
 
Hi Matthew, the vertical release of the black version of this binding is pretty far outside your needs but the white version is pretty darn close, if not spot on.

After great success with my SL 2.0 whites on my Vertex-X, a friend gave my a pair of the greens. I replaced the Speed Radicals on my Cho Oyus with the greens because the ice buidup associated with the bsl adjustment screw & track was giving me fits--some days in our maritime snows I couldn't get more than 4 strides without snow reaching the height of the binding. I feel I made a good choice. Fitted with B&D adjustment plates and antitwists, striding has actually improved; the anti-twist works great; no twist using the lifts; ice buildup occurs (like today) but is minimal and easily resloved. The setup, of course, is lighter, always a good thing. I feel the performance is better just because of a better match in the system of binding delta, boot ramp angle, boot forward lean, and tibia length (I use them with my TLT6M--I had to add shims to the toes of the Speeds and even then this is better). I did not like these bindings with the Scarpa F1--even with the forward most lean, I felt in the back seat. It seems to me that the Scarap F1 has a much milder ramp angle than the TLT6 and the added forward lean does not make up for that given the very low delta of the Superlight 2.0. The greens require a mild stomp by me to get into, less than the acceleration my 100-lb wife applies to get into her Vertical STs (Lou at wildsnow couldn't get into the greens on the snow). I have the lateral release set to my suggested RV, but the high set vertical release give me a little pause--thus a 4 star rating, altho one feels VERY secure once the heel is set; obviously no pre-release LOL

These were the first tech binding for me - they are light and work well although they are hard to click into the heels for ski mode especially compared to Speed Turns which I just have to barely weight to click into. This is not a problem on a firm base but can be a little annoying on a powdery hill.

The only negative for me is the high lifter is not high enough, even with the BD (1/2 inch) extension. And now I have a problem where it appears the lifter has gotten loose and while breaking trail will fall back (seems the snow is pushing it back?).

Has anyone experienced this? Very annoying to have to put the lifter back up every few steps! Any ideas on how to restore the stickiness of the lever or might this be a warranty issue. Without the BD extension though, there might not be an issue.

I have used these bindings to death over the past two years and wanted to offer some information here. I have these on a pair of Dynafit Cho Uyo's that I used as my go to ski for most conditions. These bindings have been extremely durable, look super sexy, and I have never had them pre-release. That said, they are really hard to step into. This could be specific to the pair I have but I have to stomp *incredibly* hard to get into ski mode. The plus of this is that I really feel secure once I'm in but it's kind of a pain in the butt. My only other complaint with the binding is that after time the heel riser mechanism gets stiff and difficult to flip around, especially when I'm lazy and try to do it with my pole.

I had a vertical release occur a few times simply sidestepping in pow!
Din set at around 11.. I believe it was a vertical release. Is there a stiffer spring available or thoughts on why this would occurr.. Seems to be mounted to spec.

Reply from jbo
 
Hi Chris, these have pretty high vertical retention. I'm guessing the skis are overcambering and the pins are pulling out of the back of the boot. How does your heel gap measure when the skis are flat?

Question from Manan P
 
Hello,

I am thinking of getting a pair of 112mm wide skis that were previously mounted with Superlight 2.0 binding. I have read your hole patterns post and realize that the hole pattern for Superlight 2.0 is different from the Dynafit Radical 2.0 ST bindings. The previous binding was mounted at manufacturer recommended line. If I want to mount Radical 2.0 also at the manufacturer recommended line, will there be enough gap between the previous hole pattern and new hole pattern for it to be safe enough? Or I will have to move the binding to the front or to the back?

On a side note, is this binding good enough to drive a 112mm wide ski? I have never used a race style binding before. What are the differences that I am going to notice if I make a switch coming from a radical 2.0?
11/29/2017
Answer from eric
 
Manan-sorry not sure what your specifically asking. Any time you remount a ski with a fixed mount binding like the Superlight 2.0 you may run into hole overlap issues. It all depends on boot sole lengths that were used in either the first or second mount. A lot of times you may have to move mounting location to dodge old holes or end up putting a plate under the heel piece to get the right gap and dodge old holes.
Yes this is enough binding to drive a wider ski. The differences between a radical 2.0 and the superlight 2.0 will be the superlight 2.0 will have less ramp angle, lower riser heights, simpler to use and less weight. The Radical 2.0 has a better release mechanism.
11/29/2017
Answer from Manan P
 
The boot sole lengths are the same for both mounts. But I think this question is very difficult to answer without having everything in hand. :) And I think you answered it satisfactorily. I got the kinds of things I will have to do if the holes do not match. I think a better question is, how much spacing do I need to keep between 2 holes on a ski for the new binding to be secure? Is 5mm enough? Thanks.
12/1/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Manan, safe distance can vary based on ski construction. Some folks say 1cm is the minimum safe distance, but that may be too close or an unnecessary restriction depending on the ski. Generally skis with a metal mounting plate can go closer than ones without.

Question from Chris Cawley
 
Hey guys, do these have a higher heel-toe delta out of the box than plum race 150/170?
11/4/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Chris, yes they do. We have the all the gory details listed here.
11/6/2017
Answer from Chris C
 
Thanks Jbo, that is a brilliant post. FWIW, I think that ski racers with non-flat binding ramp angles sometimes use a "negative" delta with a higher toe than heel, at least for speed events where being balanced is more important than being too far forward.

Question from David Carroll
 
What's the vertical release # on the Dynafit scale of the Superlight?
8/7/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey David! Thanks for reaching out! Dynafit lists the forward release value is around a 9, though we've had some test higher. It may vary a bit depending on your boots as well.

Based on your latest mounting info that I have in our system, the Superlite 2.0 will likely release a touch high in the forward direction, but will have no problem matching your appropriate lateral release value. It's an amazing binding. Let me know if you have any further questions!

Question from Constanza
 
I would like to know how hard is to step in the heel comparing with the radical ft for example. Almost all reviews say it is an issue for this binding. I am 5ft 3 and I weight 145 lbs. I am changing for a light weight set up and I really do not know if this binding is the right choice for me. It seems it is a good light weight binding that respond well for skiing relativly hard.
I really do not want to have trouble later in the backcountry and not being able to step in the binding.
6/21/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Constanza, yes the step in can be problematic for lighter folks with the black version. The white version often works better for lighter skiers. Visit our binding finder for a personalized recommendation (unfortunately just height and weight isn't enough info to chart your release value).

Question from francois
 
Hi, I bought a 2.0 black and green binding for my 125 lbs girlfriend and she struggles much to clip in the heel piece. I feel it wont release if needed and could be dangerous for her to use. Any possibility to get a softer U spring?

Thanks
1/14/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi francois, please note the step-in resistance and forward release value aren't the same variable. Best we can do for a softer step-in is the white heel pieces. Springs aren't available separately at this time.

Answer from Rando Richard
 
Francois, check out this article on how to soften up the U-spring. https://www.wildsnow.com/19750/modify-mount-dynafit-superlite-2/. I am an older (60+) skier) and so I also needed to back off the release value for safety. I just took a Dremel to my white Superlites heel springs.

Question from Jack
 
Regarding riser heights on your spec sheet, what does "unofficial flat" mean? How well does "unofficial flat" work on flat and rolling approaches?
1/7/2017
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Jack,

"Unofficial flat" means that by rotating the heel piece 90 degrees, a flat mode can be achieved. It's not intended by Dynafit to be used in such a fashion and can potentially auto-rotate into ski mode while you are skinning. A number of users have commented that they have been doing so with no problems. B&D has created an add on "Antitwist" that prevents auto rotation and we have it available here.

Question from Thatcher
 
Are these bindings adjustable at all for different boots? I have two size 29 boots of different brands: Solomon MTN Explore, and Arcteryx Procline. What is the total adjustment range on these bindings? and is it a quick process if I'm switching between boots regularly? Do I need the separate Dynafit adjustment plate in order to accommodate these different boot sizes
11/30/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Thatcher, only with the adjustment plates can they fit multiple boot lengths. There is about 20mm of range with those.

Question from Randy
 
I was told by a ski tech that these bindings won't work very well on a more flexible ski, such as my Volkl Nanuqs: there's a potential for the boot to slip out. Is this true?
11/14/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Randy, there are thousands and thousands of people skiing with tech bindings around the world. While you can get boots to pull off a tech heel by over-cambering the ski on the workbench, this is not a problem in practice when you're standing on the skis. Even on much softer skis using bindings with shorter pins than those found on the Superlite.

Now that the white version of this binding is being sold, any chance the lower RV forks (the ones from the white version) will be available to purchase for this binding? Love the Superlight 2.0 but would like to have a lower RV fork that's easier to step into.

If so, is this an easy install?

Hi Michael, it sounds like the forks will not be available separately unfortunately.

Comment from MikeB
 
Had these mounted on G3 ZenOxide 88s. The (lack of) weight is awesome. And I am an apostate, so the brakes is great too. No problem with stepping-in, but I am over 200lb, so maybe that is it. They sure feel secure when they are on. No pre-releases. Just a couple of issues:
- the press-fit pin that the heel lift pivots around, and, more critically, that retains the U-spring, came loose on one binding. This would NOT be a good pin to loose. Once it is out, the U-spring is gone the next time you step in. No probs on the warranty, tho, so all is good.
- with the brakes on, when the heel is rotated backwards, the brake seems to ever so slightly cant the heel piece upwards a little, which, it seems, makes it easier to auto-rotate. Haven't actually done a comparo to see if no-brakes will solve it, but boy, when the snowpack is firm like on spring mornings, and the ski track canted off-angle and you need to rotate your ankles to get the ski flat, that heel auto-rotates a LOT. Has only been a problem in hard spring snow with off-angle tracks. Not sure if others are seeing this. Hopefully the B&D solution will fix this.

I had looked at these bindings for a lightweight approach ski for moderate climbing terrain where I would feel comfortable using my TLT boots. I paired them with a G3 Stinger XCD ski for a decently lightweight scaled ski. Ultimately I am breaking this setup apart as I just do not like these bindings for my personal use. I feel they are a step backward from the original Superlite for my quixotic tastes. I dislike that the 2.0 compromises the race-style ease of use of the Superlite to give people the ability to use a brake and still be able to tour. This is a personal grievances though and I cannot substantively fault/down-rate the binding on these points. The binding provides a lot of function for the weight and is a great option for those who aren't afflicted with rando pragmatism.
One thing to note, make sure your shop knows how to mount these. My experience having these mounted is what ultimately pushed me to mount my own bindings. The shop I had these mounted at went overboard on the glue which clogged the spring-loaded pins that allow the brake to be attached. It was impossible to mount a brake because of this without removing the binding and cleaning the springs. For the gram-conscious who eschew brakes, the spring can be removed with a 9/64" hex key saving 5 grams per binding. Though, If you are truly concerned about saving 5 grams you should look at other bindings.

I mounted a pair of Superlight 2.0 bindings on my new Sportiva RST 2.0 skis. My primary setup previously had been Speed Radicals on Movement Shift skis, so the weight savings of more than 150g per foot was quite welcome (for the bindings only, nearly 700g per foot for the setup).

The first thing you notice with the Superlight from the Speed Radical is that the step-in force is higher - not just the heel as mentioned elsewhere, but the toe as well. I haven't yard-saled and forced a release, but the Superlight feels more secure in its closure than the Radical to me (which I have pre-released from once or twice in situations where the Superlight has held firm).

In basic function the Superlight is effectively like every other tech binding, the difference is that it's lighter (than everything but a full-on race binding) but still feels very solid and secure.

For those who are curious about a flat-boot touring position, because there is no detent in the swivel of the tower it really will not stay rotated perpendicular to the ski and this is not (natively) a viable option. I have read that B&D have solution that may be coming or even currently available, but have not used that myself.

The issue that people have mentioned with this binding is that the release value for the forward release may be high for some people. Kreuzspitze offers adjustable forward and lateral release on their GT binding - why can't Dynafit do the same here? A Superlight 3.0 maybe? This is the reason that I give this binding 4 stars instead of 5.

Over time we'll see how the durability is. So far there is nothing to make me question it - but the original Superlite was knocked for occasionally having durability issues, so I'll watch that.

Finally, the 6mm heel-toe differential was perfect for me and matched my Speed Radical bindings with a B&D toe riser. I have some 'gas pedal' shims in my boots that take up extra volume in the toes and make the differential feel perfectly balanced for me. I was very happy to be able to replicate that with the new setup without adding shims.

Question from Bill Hopkins
 
Hello,

Have you had any complaints about very difficult heel engagement for downhill mode w/ the Superlight 2.0 binding? I bought a pair for my wife and she has had problems. Also, took them to a local shop, same problem even w/ same size but different styles of boot. FWIW - I bought them online from an individual. Not surprisingly, Dynafit will not replace them. However they were unused and in their original packaging when I received them.

Thanks for any insights/advice you can provide. As is, we consider these bindings marginally functional and a liability to take in the back country.
3/18/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Bill, first check that your heel gap is set to 5.5mm. If it's closer, that will make it harder to step in. Also remember that the forward release on this binding is fixed at a level which may be too strong for your wife. FYI there is a women's edition of this binding that hopefully will be available next season that has a lower forward release.

Answer from abp
 
It's funny, I have absolutely no problem clicking into mine, but I've heard the same gripe from other people as well. I'm probably on the large side for people using skimo gear (6 foot and 200 pounds) and the takeaway here may well be that it's just overkill for anyone who doesn't have the force to click in. For us larger, more powerful folks however, I think the 2.0 is kind of the best thing going in terms of a very light binding with high retention values. I know a number of people (including myself) who rock this binding as a daily driver on 110+ waisted powder skis and find that it's limits are well outside what you normally encounter on a proper tour. I jump off of things on mine with no hesitation...
6/5/2016
Answer from Casper C
 
I sympathize with your hardship. The binding is incredibly hard for me to get into, too. So much so that I worry about being able to click in on a soft, slidy, powdery slope. This is my first tech binding, so I don't really notice the weight difference in my body, although I do notice that the reduction in weight on my overall setup is conducive to a lot of speed on the slope. Something I might try next is to use the Superlight toe piece with the Expedition heal piece for a sturdier, faster binding function.
