Bindings are made of parts, it’s a fact. Some last forever, some need replacing. Find our collection of Hagan (ATK) binding parts below.
Titanium Forks - Even with the fancy treatment on the titanium forks, they notch. At least they don’t cost an arm and a leg. Price is for a set of two and includes screws.
Heel Flaps - The bits of metal that flip onto the pins allowing you to ascend. Comes with the washers and screw to hold them in. Sold individually.
Ultra Crampon Receptors - The bolt-on crampon receptor for the Ultra binding. Includes enough hardware for one set of bindings. Weighs 16g per side with screws.
Core Freeride Spacers - A stomp pad with micro-adjustable thickness and an elastic anti-friction device that sits under the heel of the boot, eliminating the gap between your heel and the ski. Sold in pairs, each weighing 28g.
Mounting Screw 11mm - #3 Pozidrive screws with ISO standard thread pitch for mounting. Used for Ultra and ZR heel pieces.
Mounting Screw 13mm - Mounting screws for Core binding and Ultra/ZR toes.
Philosphically, toe and heel pieces are both parts and wholes.
Crampon receptors: They do the job, when ATK had crampon receptors permanently attached it only came at a 4 gram penalty, yet these weight 16g a piece.
Dropped a star because these should not cost as much as they do. Another note, while the aluminum of the receptors is the classic high quality alloy that ATK uses, the screws are not. The heads twist off all too easily, be careful when installing and removing.
Core Freeride Spacer: Is it technically possible to use it separately i.e. with other pin-binding models? (g3 ion lt, dynafit etc.) If so what is the gap height range (top of ski's topsheet <-> top of stomp pad)?.
Or may be you have some other options for separate AFD/stomp pads.
Hi Vadim! I suppose in theory you could use this independently of the Core binding, but it's definitely not designed to function as a standalone part, so you might have to get a bit creative with mounting it. The height is adjustable and at the lowest height, it is 18.4mm tall. What are you looking to accomplish with this independent AFD project? There may be some other solutions, but I'd love to get a bit more info about what you're looking to do with it.
Also, here is a picture of it from a different angle.
Hello Trace! Thanks for your input! The main purpose is to experiment with adding kind of a stomp pad to the traditional pin bindings. I had some bad experience of breaking Dynafit heel posts and also some people say that stomp pad will add "more alpine feel" while skiing. So to prevent overloading of the heel pins mainly. Leaving the noticable gap of ~5mm between the boot sole and the stomp pad I will still be able to flex the ski and eject under "normal" loading conditions. The most simple way I see is to use measured teflon blocks mounted infront of the heel pieces (like on Plum Yak bindings). The more fancy way - ATK freeride spacers, but they are pretty unique and rare to check it out. What is your opinion about stomp pad idea in general? Regards
Are steel forks available, or will the steel forks from other manufacturers' bindings work? I really like the design of this binding, but would love to use it for lots of training without having to worry about wearing through forks. Also, weight differences between the titanium fork and any steel alternatives would be appreciated!
