At Kreuzspitze it was decided that they really wanted a binding that they could use for some quick pre-work laps in the local mountains, take up to a race in Bormio, or maybe bring along for some serious mountaineering in the Swiss Alps without worrying about having to fix it in the field, or replace it at the end of every other season. Unsatisfied with the options before them, they decided to make this binding themselves and to call it the RS-A, replacing the acclaimed SCTT. Machined out of titanium and hardened steel, using cutting-edge manufacturing techniques that allowed them to lower the cost without compromising durability and longevity, the RS-A was designed to outlast the skis, boots, and maybe even the skier that it's paired with. The coated steel U-spring is notably more wear-resistant than the titanium forks used in similar bindings and provides consistent vertical release that you can trust. The fixed lateral release is set by the rotating heel piece, which snaps into place every 90° to allow for a comfortable flat-touring mode and features a race-style flap riser for speedy transitions. The toe piece employs Kreuzspitze's PFE engaging system which promises easier entry and exit and silky smooth operation of the locking lever. While the binding itself is as bare-bones as possible, Kreuzspitze conveniently offers a number of accessories such as risers and brakes that enable you to tailor the RS-A to your needs without spending grams on features that you won't use. Between the versatility and the durability of the binding, you can expect to be seeing the RS-A on the slopes for years to come. To the skiers who have oft looked down a line and wondered "can my race binding handle this?", I present a new question: "can you handle where this race binding will take you?"

  • Build your own binding with optional brakes, plates, crampon supports, and risers!
  • Made of Ergal, hardened steel, titanium, and technopolymer allowing for a lightweight, simplistic, and durable build.
  • Precision-Fast-Easy engagement system means toe operation will be smoother than ever.
  • Impressive versatility and durability for an ISMF-compliant race binding.
  • RS version with titanium fork is also available to save a few grams.

Questions & Reviews

Andy (used product regularly)
These are great no frill lightweight bindings. I have them on my powder skis, BD Helio 116. I've been touring almost exclusively on race style bindings for a while now. All of my skinning is in the flap-down riser position and I have not missed either a flat mode or a riser. These have a flat mode but I never use it.

These bindings have held up just fine for two years of regular use, skinning, dropping mogul lines, a good handful of races.

Zero complaints, product works as advertised. Seems like a pretty great value product.

Question from Ben
Are there any differences between the RS and RS-A other than titanium vs steel U-springs
Answer from jbo
Hi Ben, it's mostly metal type and color! One minor functionality difference: the steel U-springs can accept an optional riser whereas the shorter Ti springs cannot.

Question from Sky S
Do you have an estimate of the fixed release settings for these?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Sky,

As a replacement to the SCTT, the RS-A has a lot of similarities in design. However, we have not yet been able to test the RS-A to see if the release values have changed significantly from the SCTT. If you have any further questions, reach out to us at!

Question from Sam
I am considering these bindings along with the 14mm Kreuzspitze adjustment plates (which I already have). I have a jig for the Dynafit tlt 5 hole toes, which I understand are .5 mm off from the Kreuzpitze. I understand for a true race mount, it would be preferable to have exactly the right jig. However, am I correct in thinking that with the involvement of the adjustment plate, the .5mm different will not be noticeable as long as the screws are tensioned correctly?

Answer from Jeff
Sam, you seem quite prepared and knowledgeable. That .5mm difference is not a noticeable issue we these of the ATK branded bindings.
Doing a fixed mount heel does need to be done quite precisely, but the adjustment plate makes it easier. You do still need to be just as accurate for alignment.
Answer from Sam
Thanks Jeff. 9/10 times I have one of these sorts of technical questions I’ve found the answer scouring your site! I appreciate the response! You all rock!
Answer from jbo
Hi Sam, it can make the toe alignment a bit trickier but you're correct, you'll have no problems with the heel gap when using an adjustment plate.
Answer from Scott A
As far as heel release, what should I expect with my 200 pounds?
Answer from jbo
Hi Scott, there are a few more variables to a release calculation, best bet is to start with our calculator. We can then figure out if these will work for you.
