WARDEN 11 has a wide toe piece and mounting pattern to drive wide skis better than traditional bindings. And with a lighter weight and easier step in, it's a great choice for modern freeride skis. Lightweight: - A lighter heel piece than the Warden 13 reduces weight for more comfort and skiability. Easy Step-in: - Optimized Heel Construction is a different heel design than the Warden 13 that allows easier step-in and step-out for more comfort. Strong and Precise: - The U Power Toe and Oversize Platform provide strength and precision to ensure optimum power transmission.
News of the Salomon S/Lab Shift MNC Alpine Touring Ski Bindings struck the ski industry like a bolt from the blue last season. A totally new concept developed from scratch by Salomon athlete Cody Townsend and binding designer Benoit Sublet, the Shift toe piece changes from a low profile conventional toe in ski mode to a fully "pinned" tech toe for skinning. The binding feels like a lighter, lower Warden 13 going downhill, then lets you engage your tech-toed boot to smoothly skin uphill. With a weight of 865 grams per binding, the Shift is a remarkable advance in both skiing and touring performance relative to frame AT bindings, and a very viable choice for those who want to ski lift-served terrain and true backcountry on a single setup. Product Details: Toe: Dual Mode Toepiece – MNC (Multi-Norm Certified) for skiing, including WTR soles. Converts to a tech toe for touring (requires a boot with tech toe fittings). XL Wings – Long wings for a great envelopment of the boots. Toe Height Adjustable – Adjustable toe height to let you switch between different boot norms. Lateral Elasticity – 47mm Easy Step-In – Less effort needed to step-in and out of bindings. Sliding Toe Pedal Heel: Freeski Brakes – Self retracting brakes adapted to modern skis and practices. Eliminates hang ups on switch landings. Brakes are interchangeable with STH2 and Warden 13 models. Tour Mode: Hike and Ride Switch – A switch lever to shift between hike and ski mode. Accessing Toe for Touring – 1. Pull back on block between toe wings to open tech arms. 2. Depress front lever to widen arms to step in. 3. Pull up on lever to lock arms securely for skinning. Preparing Heel for Touring – Pull back on the brake pad and fix the brake in the "up" position by stepping down on the pad. Climbing Aids – 2° & 10° Boot Compatibility: Multi Norm Compatibile (MNC) – Compatible with all adult boot sole types, including ISO 5355 Alpine, ISO 9523 Touring, WTR (Walk to Ride) and GripWalk. Tech Toe Fittings Required For Use In Uphill (Touring) Mode Requires Boot with Full Heel and Toe Lugs – Not compatible with boots like the Dynafit Hoji and TLT, Atomic Backland, Salomon X-Alp and Arc'teryx Procline, among others. These boots have shortened or non-existent lugs and will not fit into the Shift in downhill mode. Additional Features: Low Profile Chassis – Low stand height for increased terrain feedback and enhanced power transmission. Oversized Platform – Super wide platform enabling high transfer of energy, even on wide skis. +Elastic Travel – Ultimate elastic travel to hold in boots during impact in order to go bigger with no risk of pre-release. Carbon-Infused PA Construction Adjustment Range – 30mm Height – 30mm Compatible with Salomon S/LAB Shift Crampons Ski Compatibility We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width. Specs: DIN / Release Value Low: 6 Type: Tech Boot Sole Type: Alpine DIN (ISO 5355), Alpine Touring (ISO 9523), Tech, Walk to Ride (WTR), GripWalk Length: Any Ability Level: Advanced-Expert More DIN / Release Value High: 13 Warranty: 2 Years
As you develop as a skier, pushing harder and skiing faster, you find out that pre-release can be just as dangerous as failure to release. Performance, light weight, and reliability are what have made the Griffon evo's most popular alpine binding over the years and the new Marker Griffon 13 ID Ski Bindings maintain that tradition. For 2017, the Griffon ID introduces a new AFD (Anti-Friction Device) with a greater adjustment range, meant to function equally well with either Alpine ISO 5355 or Touring ISO 9523 soles.
Tiny skiers with big dreams can step into the Marker Kids' M4.5 EPS Junior Ski Binding for solid, safe beginner performance that encourages the learning process and enables quick progression. Even the smallest skiers can move up the ranks, because this lightweight binding provides the easy-turning and easy-releasing necessary to prevent injury and promote growth as a budding skier. DIN range of 0.75 to 4.5 accommodates the youngest and smallest skiers learning and then moving onto intermediate terrain Binding works best for skiers between 29-125lb Edge Pressure System (EPS) ensures that the force between the toe and heel is the same and is effectively transferred to the ski's edge for better control Biotech toe system accommodates beginners by enabling easy release during backward or twisting falls Compact step-in heel is lightweight and provides precise release during falls to reduce injury Step-in heel also enables easy in and out of the binding for bathroom breaks Anti-Friction Device beneath the forefoot slides easily to facilitate release during falls and unnatural positions Lightweight plastic construction provides an affordable entry-level binding that's easy wield on the mountain 74mm or 85mm ski brake fits beginner skis (even current wider kids' models) and helps stop the ski from sliding down the hill
