Good point on the skins... I thought they were so good they could put them on without removing their skis! ;) As well as the bindings you mention, I realized the old G3 Onyx heel piece has (had) the design I’m thinking of and used mounting plates that allowed use of one binding on multiple skis, such a great idea IMO. I’ll research that more and contact G3 as I wonder why that has disappeared from the market. Thanks for the discussion!
Thanks jbo, this is something that’s been on my mind since I’d have thought by now skimo racers especially would have developed a quick-release heel piece to make transitions smoother and faster. I’m imagining a quick-release lever that slides the heel piece forward and back on the mounting plate when actuated, only needs to move ~1cm back to free the pins. Flip the lever back to exit and start the climb, flip it forward to position the pins in place and kick the heel down to ski. Most bindings already have...
Random question on these bindings related to transitioning into climb mode from ski mode: I used to use my pole as a pry bar with the Dynafit version so i didn’t have to completely step out of the binding to get back into just the toe (undo the toe, twist the heel, step back into the toe). I’m sure others used to do this too where you’d lock the toe, place the pole between your boot heel and the comical climbing riser and flick the pole to twist the binding heel enough to release your boot from the pins. ...
