Salomon has jumped both feet forward into the tech binding world with the Salomon MTN Tour Binding. The MTN binding is light, (Weighing in at only 400 grams) fully featured, and fool-proof (well almost). The toe piece features a large, sturdy lever that’s easy to manipulate with frozen hands or thick gloves. A wide mounting pattern improves power transfer on wide skis, so you can confidently use the same binding on both your mountaineering and powder skis. A retractable toe guide makes it easier than ever to step into the binding and disappears once your boot is in, making technical skin tracks a breeze. The unique heel piece features a “semi-adjustable” release value. The MTN binding includes three separate release value fork assemblies that can easily be swapped. Notably, the spring swap changes both the lateral and forward release values, creating one of the lightest bindings with adjustments for release and boot sole length. The spring assemblies are labeled “Women, Men, and Expert,” but we would like to take a moment to humbly note that there are many women that can ski harder than the Women's spring would safely allow. The heel housing sits on top of a stout baseplate with 30mm of fore-aft adjustment built in. On the roof are two risers strategically machined to keep weight to a minimum and durability to a maximum. Twist the heel housing 90- degrees and you get a flat mode which makes long approaches much easier. With all of this tech built in as well as many user- friendly features have make it one of the easiest tech bindings to use, the Salomon MTN Tour binding with NO BRAKE offers one of the best strength to weight ratios on the market today for skiers who earn their turns.
