After proving the ION could handle abuse by aggressive skiers on big skis, G3 has now introduced a version with release values more appropriate for average folk. The ION 10 is essentially the same award-winning platform as the original version, but tuned for touring instead of freeriding. The ION is notable for eliminating common frustrations with tech-bindings such as toe-wing icing, step-in difficulty, and heel-rotation constraints. Like the original (now well-travelled) ION 12, the ION 10 helps eliminate those frustrations and lets you focus on enjoying the mountains. Thank you Canada.
