A pika is a cute mountain rat. The Plum Pika is a cute alpine touring binding. Both are known to thrive at altitude so let’s start by avoiding confusion. Adding this item to your shopping cart will net you beautifully machined ski touring bindings and not a “whistling hare” (pikas often sound a high-pitched alarm when burrowing).
Made in France, the Pika is a lightweight AT binding with an elegant design. Somewhat-similar to the WEPA, Plum chose to use a heel flipper for a riser and to integrate a removable brake-system. The release mechanism is fully adjustable in both lateral and vertical directions. In other words, this is a full-featured binding at a much lighter weight than you may be used to. We’re happy to offer this binding exclusively as a Plum Center. We’re also happy Plum chose Skimo blue.
* Please note the brakes are sold separately.
