Drawing on the successful designs of both the Axl and Hammerhead bindings, the 22 designs Vice Telemark Binding is built to stand up to resort-crushing abuse. The solid stainless steel toe-piece mounts directly to the ski while durable chrome die springs provide over two inches of powerful travel. This burly, no-nonsense binding has been freed of unnecessary flare for hard-charging riders looking to put in some mileage at the resort.

  • Solid stainless steel toe-piece and 2000lb test cable attachments are designed to stand up to a beating at the resort
  • Three pivot point options for the cable allow you to adjust the binding to your own style of skiing and to the snow conditions
  • Pivot points were moved slightly more toward the rear (as compared to the Axl binding) for more resistance
  • Burly chrome die springs provide over two inches of travel for hard-charging but smooth action
  • Three degrees of backwards angle quickly engage the boot
  • Six-hole mounting pattern securely anchors this bindings to your board
  • Proudly made in the good old USA

Solid Feeling and Adjustable

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I tele ski fast and hard on blue and black groomers. This binding gives me a superb feeling of connectedness to the ski. I also like the fact that you can adjust the flexibility of the binding, depending on your style of tele turn. Absolutely no regrets in getting this binding.

everything you've read is true

    Incredible binding for resort skiing...totally bomb proof, amazing control/feel. Just spent 3 days in vermont with everything from slush to boiler plate and the vice handled all with ease. Huge fan

    Great Binding

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I learned to tele on Vollie's crb releasable binding and they were great for getting into telemark. After two seasons of shredding hard on them, and ripping out of two pairs of skis I started to look for better options. After demoing a pair of the 22 designs Vice I fell in love. These bindings made my old set up look like toys. Great construction and the way they transfer energy to the skis is fantastic! Absolutely can't wait to use these on all future set ups.

    22designs does it again-Vice & Axl

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Got the Vice mounted on Atomic Drifter (182cm) for my resort skiing this season and after over 20 days on mixed Sierra snow (Mammoth, Sugar Bowl, Squaw), & I couldn't be happier. I'm 6'5", ~200lbs and I can crank these bindings with no problems. Very solid construction, the Vice is responsive, easy to adjust cables-no tools req'd and overall a fantastic binding. Replacing the venerable Hammerhead, the Vice is designed like the Axl, but does not pivot. The Vice has a slight rise that facilitates initiating turns & still laterally solid. Unless you're doing a lot of BC, the Vice should meet your needs very well-esp if most of your Tele in on piste. For BC, if you're not sold on getting AT gear,the Axl is a workhorse and handles BC to my satisfaction. My one caveat re:Vice is that when you first get the binding, read up on how to adjust the cables. You will have to adjust them several times the first 3-4 days you ride them. Because of my size, I elected to go with the stiffer cables.

    Excellent Product!

      Had these bindings mounted boot center on k2 Hardsides; suddenly I'm a better skier than ever. Tele turns are locked in and alpine turns are improving exponentially. Beefy bindings like these are great for fatter skis. Much more control than my G3 Targa Ascents. Bonus: Vice bindings are easy to get in and out of! Love these bindings!

      Nice lateral control

      • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Moved to these from a pair of bombshells. I found skiing parallel on these much easier, and there's enough more action on these to initiate tele turns too. I'm a light guy, 130#, and I ski on the most active setting. So I can't speak for 200# + ex-NFL running backs... :-)

      Everything you know and love from 22

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      New ramp angle keeps rocker launch to zero. While it technically has less pivot points than the hammerhead, you still have a wide range of active positions to choose from. Built off of the platform of the popular Axl only with out the tour mode and at a much cheaper price. Awesome resort binding!

      Any advice on mounting location for Vice on Volkl Kendos for lift serviced skiing?

      Hey Bruce,

      Sorry about the delayed response. I would recommend you go with the factory recommended mounting position for the Vice Bindings on your Volkl Kendos. I am an avid telemark skier so feel free to contact me directly with any more questions.

      how do these bindings compare with scarpa NTN binding - nearly half the price so that is obvious. But performance?

      As far as PERFORMANCE goes, both the Vice and NTN system are very active bindings, with the intent of transmitting as much energy from the boot to the ski, which is very necessary when driving big skis in deep snow and simply charging around the mountain. However, the NTN system is said to have a different feel to it than traditional cable style tele setups. As with any piece of equipment, demo first!
