You knew it was coming. The big brands in the ski world have finally decided to dive into our growing niche, and they are making waves. Atomic/Salomon have been testing their tech binding with team athletes for a couple of years and have nailed it. The Backland Tour is a fully functional, almost all metal tech binding coming in at less than 300 grams!
Toe piece includes a fool proof metal step in guide, leash loop, and standard tech/Dynafit style crampon acceptor. Heel unit provides a 30 mm BSL adjustment, flat, medium and high climbing positions, and 3 levels of release adjustability. U spring is removable and the binding comes with 3 options- Women, Men and Expert. These correlate to roughly 6, 8 and 11 release values. Brake is an add on and must be mounted with the heel unit. This is a bomber, highly functional, and lightweight ski touring and mountaineering binding that has already found it's way on to some our personal setups!
Check out the blue painted Salomon MTN if gray doesn't quite match your skis or steeze.
