Fischer doesn’t call this the 3.0, but rather the Tour Race Lite. However, after three entirely different versions of the Tour Race Lite, we are here to help you differentiate. The “3.0” is essentially the Dynafit Low Tech Race 2.0, but with a manual locking lever and a lower price. This means the binding is fully ISMF and wallet compliant. The heel piece is Pierre Gignoux’s brain-child, whose natural habitat is at the top of a podium somewhere. It works great with carbon boots and has both lateral and forward release mechanisms. If you are looking to drop weight, cost, and retain functionality, the Tour Race 3.0 performs admirably.
- An advanced mix of aerospace grade aluminum, titanium, and high-strength plastic make the binding strong and seriously light.
- The only thing faster than EPO is the heel flap, the quickest way to transition from hiking to skiing.
- Cutting grooves on the toe pins help to keep your boots ice-free and seated properly.
- Lateral and forward release mechanisms provide a modicum of injury prevention.
- Covered by Fischer's 4-year binding warranty.
- Still looking for a new product photographer that specializes in Fischer bindings.

Questions & Reviews
The heel pins can wear after a season or two of hard use, but luckily the units can be replaced fairly easily.
