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 180ยบ), and they updated the mounting pattern from three holes to a more stable 4-hole pattern.

  • Optional stopper system accepts optional brakes in 75, 90, and 105mm widths.
  • Lateral release can be adjusted between 5-10 or 6-12 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.

*** 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.

Question from Brad Zeerip
Howdy, It looks like the Superlite 2- Z series has a beefed up toe around the toe screws. Can you confirm this? I have had a problem breaking the toe pieces at the screw on the superlite and superlite 2.o versions. The 2.0 had more beef around the screw but it was not enough. Also does the newly announced lifetime warranty apply to the superlite 2.0 Z series?
Answer from TSB
Hey Brad, you're right that the current product iteration does include a slightly thicker baseplate which may resolve your previous issue. You're correct that the Lifetime Warranty applies to all bindings sold in model year 2019-20 and beyond.

Question from Dennis
How does the technology on this binding compare to the Radical ST 2.0? does this binding feature the pivotting toe?
Of course ,I assume it does not compensate for ski length change due to flex? Thanks, Dennis
It looks like even adding the adjustment plate and brakes the weight would be half compared to the ST 2.0 with brakes?
Answer from Jeff M
Dennis, The Superlite is, as its name suggests, not too comparable to the Radical ST 2.0. It does not have the rotating toe that is currently found on the Rotation 7,10 and 12. Use our binding finder to find what will fulfill your needs.

Question from Ryan B
If you mount the heels on an adjustable heel plate, can you still use the brake?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Ryan! With Dynafit's Superlite 2.0 plate you can use the brakes. With the B&D plates, you can not use the brakes.

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.
Answer this question:

by Andy (used product a few times)
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

by Stan (used product regularly)
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.

by T Fink (downright abused product)
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.

by Chris (used product a few times)
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?
Reply from Chris C
Thanks for getting back so fast!
Ya- gap is too big for sure..
Measures up and compared to your notes on skimo.. back to the source ;-/

Thanks for checking, Chris. Practice makes perfect!

Question from Manan P

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?
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.
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.
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?
Answer from jbo
Hi Chris, yes they do. We have the all the gory details listed here.
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?
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.
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 Sean
Is it possible to just get the sl 2.0 toes(green ones)? Can't remember if I have an account(I've picked up b and d toe shims in the past). I'm in revelstoke. My postal code is V0e3k0
Answer from jbo
Hi Sean, we typically have toes listed here but are currently out of stock on the Superlites.

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?

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?
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
Answer from jbo
Hi Thatcher, only with the adjustment plates can they fit multiple boot lengths. There is about 20mm of range with those.
Answer this question:

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?
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.

Question from Jorn
Any chance that the 105mm brake would work for a 106mm ski like for instance the Movement Alp Tracks 106?
Answer from jbo
Hi Jorn, yes the 105 brakes work fine on the Alp Tracks 106. They will fit a few more mm than list.

Question from Michael
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?
Answer from jbo
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.
