Type III+ - Expert
50 - 99 days / year
Ok, thanks for the helpful info. Also I need to update my prior review. Honestly after racing the PDG on these and doing some big spring days I need to downgrade these to two stars. They are just so darn hard to get into. My trip the other day probably had 20+ transitions and I easily lost 20 seconds on each one of them (compared to a normal binding) in addition to getting hip flexor cramps and wasting energy. As I get more tired it just gets harder and harder to manage them. I can't recommend anyone buy ...
Spent this year racing on these bindings. Here are my thoughts: -The design is quite ingenious. I love how simple everything is, the retention has been great and they inspire plenty of confidence at speed. -They are hard to get in to, even after lots of practice i occasionally have a transition that goes 15 seconds longer than it should while fighting to get in. IMO the design just isn't as easy to get into as traditional tech bindings (only matters if racing). -The brakes get sticky quite often, I keep ...
After purchasing this headband my AeT improved 10%, I got a promotion, discovered my soul mate, and found $20 in my skin suit beacon pocket.

Love the new suits (21/22). Fit really well, looks good. The rubber kick pads on the inside of the stirrups will hopefully help with longevity. The external pockets are also great. My transitions aren't really that good, so having one less thing to think about is great (no unzipping suit front). We just need a lighter color version for big spring days, black won't cut it for glacier missions in the PNW in May : )
