24 Most Wanted Touring Bindings for 2020

 

Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Alpine Touring Binding One Color One Size #ad
Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Alpine Touring Binding One Color, One Size
Plum Tech Bindings Yak M 14 Alpine Touring Binding One Color, One Size #ad - Plum tech’s yak m 14 alpine touring binding blends a backcountry-friendly weight with a freeride-focused din for hard-charging skiers who prefer traveling far for king lines. Since you prefer riding ridiculously difficult terrain, it’s all the more important to have release values ideal for rallying said rowdiness. When you know a pound underfoot equates to anywhere between five and ten pounds on your back, you want an ultralight setup so your legs can rally backcountry’s rowdy cliffs, steep couloirs, and high-altitude peaks. Bringing din values to tech bindings isn’t the only innovation involved with the yak. The rotating heel is pretty classic though, because it’s too easy to switch from ski mode to walk mode–or even the two heel risers–using only your ski poles without taking skis off. Plum changed the proximity of the yak’s tech pins for an easier step-in.

Salomon MTN + Brake Alpine Touring Binding Black/Blue, 80mm
Salomon MTN + Brake Alpine Touring Binding Black/Blue, 80mm #ad - Weighing under two pounds per pair, salomon’s mtn + brake alpine touring binding is certainly a minimalist that best suits gram-counting backcountry skiers, but unlike most tech bindings, the mtn + has variable release ratings to better suit an array of downhill skiers ranging from beginners to intermediates. Its classic u spring design holds three different release values to keep things safe for beginners still learning how to turn, and keep expert skiers attached to their planks as they reach mach speeds. Another unique feature with salmon’s mtn + is the wider screw integration that enhances energy transmission on the downhill. As for the uphill, this binding has two heel lifters to help you tackle the steeps. This binding comes with brakes to further assist in safety and convenience. These lifters face opposite than most to prevent falling down when you’re half-way up the mountain.

 

Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding WhiteBlack L130mm #ad
Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding White/Black, L/130mm
Salomon Guardian MNC 13 Alpine Touring Binding White/Black, L/130mm #ad - With retention that’s virtually identical to trusted alpine clamps, the guardian has a din that can be cranked all the way up to 13, so you won’t worry about stepping out of your bindings in sketchy areas, and a sliding afd and u power toe piece for consistent lateral and twisting release and reliable power transfer. Even better, the guardian uses salomon’s mnc (multi-norm compatible) system, which means it’ll work with traditional alpine boots, at boots with rubber soles, salomon’s wtr boots, and even some tech boots, so you don’t have to buy extra gear to access your dream line. A single flip-up climbing bail provides heel elevation for steeper ascents. Of course, all this would be for naught if the guardian was a pos on the way up. When you need bomber skiing as well as solid skinning, an alpine-inspired at binding like the salomon guardian mnc 13 binding is where it’s at. Luckily, it isn’t, with features like a flat nose that pivots 90 degrees for a natural stride and an easy hike & ride switch that can be activated without stepping out of the binding. The uphill ease of a tech binding counts for a lot, but sometimes the smooth skinning isn’t worth the occasionally questionable performance on the way down. The double full flex baseplate and burly aluminum tubes provide a flex-free platform, so you don’t feel like you’re floating independently of your skis, and the low-profile chassis keeps you close to the snow for increased control and a natural feel.

Whether it’s a multi-day trip through the alps or a springtime couloir-hunting mission in the rockies, you like to cover some serious ground in the backcountry. 5-12 release rating, these bindings don’t sacrifice safety when cutting weight.

Tyrolia mbition 12 Carbon Touring Binding One Color Long 85mm #ad
Tyrolia mbition 12 Carbon Touring Binding One Color, Long 85mm
Tyrolia mbition 12 Carbon Touring Binding One Color, Long 85mm #ad - The freeflex technology allows the binding to maintain its natural flex through a free gliding plate that runs withing the titanal heel track, the result of which is the solid downhill performance you’d expect from a pair of tyrolias. Tyrolia has been producing bindings for going on 85 years and its release of the ambition last season was the company’s first offering in the at market. With the exception of the carbon frame, the ambition is identical to tyrolia’s other at bindings. Far lighter than almost any frame binding you’ll find on the market today, the ambition 12 carbon is the first major innovation we’ve seen in frame-style bindings for quite a few years, and it will be a welcome companion during those longer tours when you don’t want to just make it down, but ski, huck, and rail your way down your line. Since the ambition is made by tyrolia, it delivers the same high elasticity and freeflex technology you get from the company’s dedicated alpine bindings. The at toe piece smoothly pivots as you walk, but has a gliding afs plate for a friction-less feel on the downhill. The din maxes out at 12, making it a great binding for all but the biggest skiers. The binding can be switched from walk to ski mode, without having to step out of the binding, and the heel has three different climbing aid heights for the ascent. Have a hard time believing that dinky pin bindings are going to give you the downhill performance you want after you’ve spent all morning hiking for that one run’ then step into the tyrolia ambition 12 carbon touring bindings to shed serious lbs from your setup without sacrificing an ounce of safety or downhill prowess. How did they do it you ask’ a special ingredient called carbon is used in the frame of the binding to make this variation of the ambition almost a whole pound lighter than its non-carbon cousins.

Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 130mm/S
Atomic Tracker 13 MNC Alpine Touring Binding Black/Silver, 130mm/S #ad - The addition of multi-norm compatibility (mnc) means it’s compatible with most alpine, touring, and wtr boot soles.

The aluminum double tubes have been strengthened for a burlier ride, the stand height checks in at a low and precise 26mm, and the easily-adjustable toe piece makes getting the fit and release settings right a cinch. That’ll save you from having to invest in multiple boots to fit all your bindings, but it doesn’t affect the reliable release and retention of the tracker. The tracker certainly isn’t as light and fast as a tech binding, but if you’re more interested in short tours, big lines, and all-mountain versatility than long approaches and techy skiing, then it will definitely get the job done. Atomic even simplified the base plate to prevent icing and snow buildup, so you’ll spend less time fiddling with your bindings and more time shredding. It skis like an alpine binding, with a rugged u power toe,oversized platform, and a din that goes to 13, but it’ll get you up to to those backcountry lines you want to ski too, thanks to the 90-degree toe pivot, flat nose, and hike-and-ride switch that can be operated while you’re still locked into the binding.

G3 Ion LT 12 Alpine Touring Binding With Leash One Color, 456g Single #ad - A lot of folks were liking what the g3 ion had to offer last season, but wanted to see a lighter, brake-less version for those long tours and big mountaineering objectives when every gram counts, so g3 took heed and developed the ion lt 12 alpine touring binding with leash for all of you minimalist, gram-counting backcountry skiers out there. The mounting pattern is wide to direct more power to the ski, and the forward pressure heel elasticity works to maintain consistent release values during landings and compressions. Being the lightest offering in the ion lineup, the ion lt weighs just one pound per binding but maintains the same downhill prowess as its predecessors. The heel piece can be turned in either direction, meaning you don’t have to turn the heel a full 360-degrees just to put it back into ski mode, and the quicklift heel risers are specifically designed to be easily grabbed with either a ski pole or by hand. You’ll find the same smart designs on the ion lt that reduce the amount of time you spend fiddling with your bindings thanks to easy step-in guides, which help direct the toe inserts on your boots into the toe pins, along with a snow clearing channel, which help to prevent snow and ice from accumulating on the toe piece, causing a false connection that can result in pre-releases.

For skiers looking to maximize downhill performance and the connection to the snow in their at bindings there really aren’t any others that can compare to the design and performance of the tracker 13.

It uses alpine inspired toes and heels placed on a low stand height, lightweight frame that’s super stable. The atomic tracker 13 is an awesome at binding that gives you the stability and control of an alpine binding in a low stand height frame touring design. In a day and age where there are multiple ski boot sole types it’s nice that the tracker 13 is multi-norm certified. While they’re designed more for the downhill than the ascents, it’s still relatively lightweight, easy to switch in between ski and tour mode, and has 2 climbing aid positions for varying pitching while you’re climbing. You’ll be exploring and excelling in backcountry terrain before you know it.
