The original Kreuzspitze GT Binding impressed the ski-touring world with its race weight binding that had adjustable vertical and lateral release values. So you can imagine our excitement to see Kreuzspite up their game with a further refined version of this binding, logically named the GT 2.0. Upgrades include an updated toe piece that features a revised geometry over the original, which made it a pleasure to operate - think smoother lever action and better step in. The binding designers also listened to the crowds and integrated the previously not-included race flaps and high risers. The attached heel flaps can be flipped into place, allowing for more convenient transitions; you don't have to take the time to rotate the heel piece before climbing. If you do rotate the heel, you have access to a flat mode and a higher riser. Of course, Kreuzspitze kept the patented release value adjustability. This innovative system moves a lightweight and simple U-spring fore and aft, allowing you to set your preferred value. And since it's adjustable, you can tweak it to keep up as you grow and/or begin to ski more aggressively. At the end of the day, you're getting a race weight binding that adds more features than the original at an even better price.
