Salomon's entry to the tech binding world shows that they have done their homework. This is a fully featured binding that also cuts out the frills that we are seeing in some tech models, coming in under 300 grams without a break and under 400 with a stopper.
Materials wise, the MTN is primarily metal, with very minimal amounts of high strength plastic. A full 30 mm adjustment range allows for multiple boots and even boot sizes if mounted with some care. Flat, medium and high risers are easy to use aluminum flippers. Further more, the MTN can be run like a race binding by not rotating the pins. This allows for quicker transitions with only medium and high risers.
There are 3 options for release value- women, men and expert. These relate roughly to 6, 8, and 11 but are probably better understood as light/casual skier, bigger/non-extreme skiers, and never come out skiers. Each binding comes with all three U springs that can be swapped with one simple screw. The toe unit is a fairly standard machined aluminum piece with a step in guide, leash loop, crampon acceptor, and locking polymide toe lever. The brake is an optional piece that is mounted under the heel unit.
If you love the features, but blue doesn't make your eyes pop, try the orange Atomic Backland paint job of the exact same binding.
