If you have surfed deep into the Skimo Co website without feeling out-of-place, chances are the Hagan Ride 10 is what a fully featured binding should look like to you. At a meager 290g per side, the Ride is right there with some of the lighter bindings on the market. What’s really impressive, however, is how much Hagan managed to pack into the binding. The toe-piece is a classic design that’s been refined over the years with an integrated set of surprisingly effective brakes. The heel-piece offers a full flat-on-ski mode along with two risers that adapt to changing terrain. Simply flip the magnetic heel-flaps into place with your pole to start climbing. Included is a simple adjustment track that offers 30mm of sole-length range to accommodate multiple boots. The Hagan Ride 10 is the real deal.
