When we saw the design drawings and early prototypes for the new GT binding, we knew Kreuzspitze was onto something good. As is their style, the small Italian machine shop quietly worked to refine the binding while paying no attention to marketing and associated bombast. The resulting GT is a lightweight masterpiece which adds both lateral and forward release adjustability to a race binding. Unlike some other race bindings, you don’t have to hesitate to ski it unlocked. Race-weight with little compromise is the new now.
- Innovative composition of Ergal aluminum, titanium, steel, and structural carbon fiber.
- Heel pieces have lateral and vertical release adjustment from 5-10 on the “tech” scale.
- Toe levers have two lock positions to work with various degrees of boot wear.
- Detents every 90° let you use a riser or skin with your heels flat on the ski.
- Optional heel flaps and an additional heel riser can bolt on to increase speed during transitions and provide even more versatility.
- Lateral elasticity is similar to touring tech-bindings with spring-on-post design.
- Integrated crampon receptors accept most crampons, slid in from the side.
- Optional adjustment plates adapt to various boot-quiver needs.
- Fully compliant with ISMF racing rules and a very low weight, 161g.
- Designed and produced in Italy, patent pending.

Questions & Reviews
1. The bindings do not include a paper mounting template. Typically, these can be found online. Just make sure you follow the print instructions and have it in the correct layout. Since jigs are relatively delicate we are unable to rent them out. We could mount your skis for you, though! If this interests you, please reach out and we can give you the details.
2. The Heel Support Pads come with longer pan head screws and an adjusting bolt.
3. We can install the hardware for you! If we mount the binding there is no cost to do this. If we don't mount the binding there may be a small service charge since they are more difficult to install if not on a ski.
If you are after an incredibly light binding that offers the ability to control the lateral release, this is a good choice. Just keep in mind it uses a U-spring, so the vertical release is fixed within a range and not adjustable. The Vario 2. is 186 grams heavier (with the 7-9 U-spring) but will be the better skiing of the two. If you want the lightest option, the GT would be a good choice. If you are willing to carry 186 grams more up the hill and want the better skiing of the two, go with the Vario 2.0. Please feel to reach out to us at email@example.com if you have any more questions!
I'm not seeing them.
What is recommended heel gap for these bindings?
Does Kreuzspitze make optional heel risers for the GT similar to those which they make for the SCTT bindings?
Is it possible to by only heel pieces of these bindings?
Just wondering if you have any specs on the dimensions of this binding? Do you know what the heights of the toe and heel pins are? I want to figure out if I can use the Kreuzspitze ski brake with this binding and my boots (TLT6).
Do you know what the difference in pin height will be with adjustment plate/dynafit adapter?
Ps the Kr. heels are working great. More energy for more laps of pow making friends envious. The gear weight gap from "normal" is massive here in NZ
