Here at Skimo Co, we understand the challenge lighter skiers face when trying to find the appropriate gear. Boots are often too big, skis are too long, and the release values on bindings are too high. We deal with this challenge all year, and are now excited to offer the Plum Oazo 6 binding, one of the lightest and most capable touring bindings on the market made specifically for lighter skiers. With a typical three-stage locking toe piece (open, ski, skin), built-in ski crampon attachment points, and three heel-riser settings, the Oazo 6 is a fully featured binding that is burly enough for steep lines and light enough for massive vertical. Gone are the days of compromising safety for performance, or performance for better fitting gear-- the Plum Oazo 6 is a serious binding for serious skiers who simply need lower release values to ski safely.

  • Mid and high risers deploy while the heel piece is in ski mode and sit atop the pins, while the flat walk mode requires you to rotate the heel.
  • Plum claims that the Oazo 6 forward release value is around 6 while the heel has an adjustable lateral release of 5-10.
  • Includes removable crampon attachment (+9g) that accepts Plum crampons that drop in vertically and easily.
  • Adjustment plate under the heel offers 19mm adjustability to accommodate all your different boots.
  • Heel risers are 0, 41, and 54mm from the surface of the ski for plenty of climbing options.
  • Plum offers a 3 year warranty on the Oazo 6 binding.
  • Made in France.

Super happy with this binding; two friends of mine have both bought it after seeing how well it was working for me and how light it is. Clicking the toe in goes really easily and smoothly, and I'm psyched on the efficiency of the heel piece's uphill/downhill transition. To go from uphill-with-low-riser mode to downhill mode, you just flip the riser tab up and stomp your heel down. No acrobatics or ballet twists required. It feels super light and minimal but skis nice and hard, too. I got the Oazo 6 since I'm a lightweight human who doesn't need a high DIN.

Question from Joan
 
The Oazo 6 says it is for Lighter skiers. Is there a weight range for this reference?

Answer from Will
 
Hey Joan!

Thanks for the question. The difference is the U-Spring in the heel piece which is labeled at a 6 for forward release! To determine whether you'll be better suited for the Oazo 4, 6 or 8 then I encourage you to use our Binding Finder to determine your release value. It takes into account weight, age, skier type, height, and boot sole length.

Question from Jack
 
What is the difference between the Oazo 6 and Oazo 8?
It seems the 6 goes down to a release value of 4 while the 8 only goes down to 5. Does the ski crampon attachment point remove on the 8, or is the only available on the 6?

Answer from Cole P
 
Hey Jack, we believe that the Plum Oazo 6 and Oazo 8 are identical besides the vertical release and color. The Oazo 8 has a vertical release at an around an 8 and the Oazo 6 vertical release is around a 6, both should have an adjustable lateral release of around 5-10. Crampon attachments are the same on both models and are both removable.

Hi Jack, the lateral release indicators go down to 4 on both bindings, but we haven't been able to get one to test that low, so we feel 5 is a better minimum guideline for both.

Question from Kristine
 
Does this binding have the same hole pattern as the Plum Pika?
12/18/2019
Answer from TSB
 
Hey Kristine! The Oazo is patterned off of the venerable Plum Race 170 rather than the slightly wider pattern of the Pika/WEPA. If you're curious about re-drilling for the Oazo, let us know; we can look at hole overlap between the two bindings.
