Salomon Shift MNC 10 Binding

Typically, the "reliability" of a ski binding refers to its consistency of retention and release of your ski boots. When it comes to touring bindings, the Salomon MNC Shift is among the most reliable that you can find, and with a DIN certification to back it up! This level of consistency is something formerly considered unachievable in the backcountry, except for frame bindings (but we don't talk about those here). However, for some smaller and lighter skiers the original Shift MNC 13 is sub-ideal since the release value of the binding is higher than the release value of their tibia. Enter the Shift MNC 10: with a lower range of release values than its forebear, this is the binding that Salomon presents to backcountry skiers who demand lower release values for a greater sense of confidence avoiding leg injuries, or big mountain skiers who are simply smaller and lack enough inertia to hit the release threshold of the original Shift. If you want a binding that has all of the uphill speed of a full-featured touring binding and the downhill confidence of a DIN-certified alpine binding that will eject you before twisting your tibia into pieces, then the Salomon Shift MNC 10 may be the binding for you.

  • Pin-based touring toe converts to DIN-certified alpine binding toe for charging downhill.
  • Release value range of 4-10 for lighter skiers or wider safety margins.
  • MNC boot compatibility means the binding can support a plethora of different boots.
  • Great option for skiers who frequent both backcountry and in-bounds terrain.
  • Sleek and sexy all-black paint job.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Katherine
Hello! Thanks for taking the time to respond to these questions. Based on the responses so far, I'm now torn between the 100mm and 110mm for a 106 waist ski. Normally I'd go 110, but it seems that 100mm is something to consider.

What would you recommend in this case?
Answer from Zak M
Hey Katherine, the 100mm brakes should work fairly well with a little bit of bending.

Question from Matthew E Buck
The more I am digging in I am seeing that the 90's could potentially fit a 104 waist. Would that be possible?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for your question, Matthew. The 90 brake would be a bit too narrow, even with stretching, for a 100 underfoot ski. Your best bet would be to go with the 100mm brake option.

Question from matt
One more question.

I am seeing that the brakes run wide. I have BD Helio Carbon 166 length 104 waist.

Can you put the 100 on there? Thanks
Answer from Brett S
Hey Matt, the 100 brake would be a great fit.

Question from Matt
Hello there. I just ordered the K2 Mindbender 100 AT boots.

Will the Salomon MNC shift bindings work with them? Thanks
Answer from Brett S
Hey Matt, the K2 Mindbender 100 AT Boot will definitely work with the Shift binding.
Answer this question:

Eric S (used product a few times)
I haven't used "downhill style" bindings in 20 years or so, and generally prefer light tech bindings. But I bought a pair of skis this year with primarily inbounds and slackcountry use in mind, and figured "why not" put these on since weight isn't much of a consideration. So far so good. I'm not really convinced they are any safer than something like the Dynafit Rotation 12/10/7 series, and they are not nearly as elegant. It's possible to step in and have the heal slightly off-kilter, something that's impossible with tech bindings, hence: 4 stars, not 5.

Question from Roger Wall
Could you clarify whether older Dynafit boots (TLT 6 Mountain; Zzeus alpine/touring soles) are compatible with the Shift binding? Thanks.
Answer from Julieana
Hey Roger, the old Zeus will be compatible with the Shift binding, the TLT6 Mountain will not.
