Is Dynafit still including separate EU & US tags this season? I have last season's very similar Movement pants, in the "EU 48/M" & "US 32" size, which was sold in the U.S. as a size Small. I'm about a 32" waist and 32" inseam, and if anything they're a bit big in the waist, though the elastic drawstring takes up the excess quite well.

Overall: Five Stars for a binding that combines the reduced weight and heel>toe angles of a race binding with the adjustable release and multiple heel elevators of a regular touring binding. Now that La Sportiva is no longer rebranding the ATK RT, the Superlite’s “best-of-both-worlds” combination is unique in North America. Background on product familiarity: I have skied the Superlite only a small amount so far this season with the Scarpa Alien 1.0 on the Movement Response-X. Other race and near-rac...

Overall: Five Stars for a race binding that is outrageously light and innovative, even among lots of competition from other light and innovative race bindings.

First, the first impressions out of the box: If you’ve never seen a rando race bin...

Five Stars for the integrated fore-aft adjustability option among Plum’s three different race bindings. This brief review focuses only on what distinguishes the 165 from the 145, so see my review of that “baseline” model for more details on the common features. The only difference in the 165 from the 145 is the integration of a 20mm adjustment track. The weight savings per foot are accurately portrayed in the model names. In addition to allowing you to accommodate different boot sole lengths in the sa...

Five Stars for the lightest option – by just a little bit – among Plum’s three different race bindings. This brief review focuses only on what distinguishes the 135 from the 145, so see my review of that “baseline” model for more details on the common features. The only difference in the 135 from the 145 is the substitution of a titanium U-shaped spring for the steel version in the 145. The weight savings per foot are accurately portrayed in the model names. The titanium version is stronger than the s...
