The XS version of the Guide binding is tailored towards lighter skiers. Plum used softer springs to achieve release values appropriate for smaller skiers, but otherwise the binding is just as robust. It is fully featured with multiple risers, locked/unlocked modes, and adjustment for different boot lengths. You can choose from a brakeless version for the best uphill performance, or a version with brakes to safely stop your skis. The Plum Guide XS is are great touring binding for skiers with a charted release value of 3.5 – 7. To find out if that is you, check out our release value calculator.

  • Flat mode plus a low and high riser are activated by rotating the heel.
  • Locked uphill & unlocked skiing modes available with a flip of the toe lever.
  • Optional brake widths now of 85mm, 95mm, 105mm or 115mm fit a good range of skis.
  • 30mm of Boot Sole Length adjustment adapts to growing feet.
  • Innovative slot accepts Plum crampons as a skinning aid.
  • Brakeless version includes a pair of Plum leashes.
  • Purple!

Question from Allen
 
Would the hole pattern from using dynafit superlights be a problem to mounting the plum guide xs?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Allen! There might be a few conflicts here and there but the Guide has so much flexibility that you'll likely be able to avoid any potential hole overlap issues you may run into.

Question from Chris Volk
 
Howdy

On these Plum XS binding with brakes, in your opinion could the 95mm brakes be tweaked just a little to accommodate a 99mm waist ski?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Chris! Probably! Depends on the ski though. Plus, it depends on the length, sidecut, sidewall angle, and boot size. With all of those variables thrown in though I still think it's totally possible given that it's only an extra 2mm of clearance on each side that you're looking for.

Question from Len Lucas
 
Can you use dynafit crampons with plum bindings?
3/31/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Len, not with the current lineup. Plum has their own crampons that are compatible with their bindings.

Answer from Jonathan S
 
Nate, so just to clarify, the new crampon slot on the Plum race bindings can take either traditional Dynafit crampons or Plum crampons, but the Guide can take only Plum crampons?
4/3/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Jonathan/Len. The new crampon slot on the Race 150/170 accepts Plum crampons only as does the latest edition of the Guide. The Race 145, 165, 185, and older versions of the Guide had a Dynafit receptor. There's no cross-compatibility between Dynafit and Plum receptors.

Question from David Pease
 
Hey Jason

Are the bindings removable on the plum guide purple? Thanks

Answer from jbo
 
Hi David, the Guide brakes are not designed to be removed unfortunately. Fortunately you can get the same bindings without brakes.
