In 1928, just outside Vienna, Austria, the company that would become Tyrolia introduced a touring binding onto the market: the original Almonte. It's been long enough that Tyrolia decided to forego a "Version 2" naming scheme here, concluding that it's unlikely these two products will be confused. A rare nod to the consumer intellect that we appreciate. Technology has come a long way and Tyrolia's latest Almonte PT Binding bears all the trappings of a modern and performant tech binding. All the same, it maintains a simple and intuitive design of ages past. The toe features an ergonomic lever and pins that sit at just the right distance to make step-in effortless. The heel rotates sideways to activate an automatic brake lock (if you're using them) and allows easy access to a flat, mid, and high riser, all nicely flippable with a pole or hand. An optional Performance Spacer can be added under your boot to optimize power transmission to your skis, and a gapless heel design ensures consistent release as you pressure into your turns. Tyrolia took great care to create an eco-conscious binding, using recycled and sustainable materials in the Almonte. Notably, all plastic parts are sourced from renewable raw materials. The Almonte beckons you back to the early days of simple backcountry skiing and offers you the dependable and intuitive performance to do so.

  • Optional heel spacer for improved power transmission.
  • Brakes automatically lock up via a heel rotation, if you're using them.
  • Two vertical-release spring options and an adjustable lateral release let you dial it in.
  • Gapless heel keeps a consistent release when the ski is flexed.
  • Convenient riser system with 3 height options keeps you happy on the uphill.
  • Narrow geometry of the toe piece allows for an easy step-in.
  • Environmentally friendly construction is kind to the places we love and cherish.
  • Lineage dates back to the early 1930's.
