The Voile Switchback is the original free pivot telemark binding that won tele skiers over across the globe. Lightweight, simple, durable and fool proof, this binding is jack of all trades and does everything well from the uphill to the down. This is a great binding for intermediate to advanced tele skiers looking for a workhorse of a binding. And unlike the Switchback X2 binding, it offers softer cartridges for a smoother, more user friendly flex when in the tele position. With time tested hardware and beefy forged steel construction, the Switchback can take whatever you dish out. What makes this binding stand out from their competitors is their free pivoting feature for climbing. It allows you to have a longer stride, take pressure off of your legs and provide effortless skiing. Two riser bars will help you out immensely once the skin track turns steep and you need extra lift under the boot. And when you reach the top of your journey and are to point it downhill, just a flick of the switch with your pole in front of the binding takes you from tour mode to downhill mode in just seconds. Easy, simple and fast along with being very lightweight. With the Voile Switchback, you can free your heel and the mind will certainly follow for many hot laps under the chair or for all day laps in the backcountry.
