Description

A one-binding quiver.

With the retention and release of a traditional alpine binding and touring performance that's downright shocking, the Atomic Tracker 13 Alpine Touring Binding can handle everything you get up to this winter. It skis like an alpine binding, with a rugged U Power toe, oversized platform, and DIN that goes to 13, but it'll get you up to to the gnarly lines you want to ski too, thanks to the 90° toe pivot, flat nose, and hike-and-ride switch that can be operated while you're still locked in to the binding. The Tracker certainly isn't as light and fast as a tech binding, but if you're more interested in short tours, big lines, and all-mountain versatility than long approaches and techy skiing, it's right up your alley.

There are a few changes to this year's Tracker, too, most notably the addition of Multi-Norm Compatibility (MNC), which means it's compatible with most alpine, touring, and WTR boot soles. That'll save you from having to invest in multiple boots to fit all your bindings, but doesn't affect the reliable release and retention of the Tracker. The aluminum double tubes have been strengthened for a burlier ride, the stand height checks in at a low and precise 26mm, and the easily-adjustable toe piece makes getting the fit and release settings right a cinch. Atomic even simplified the base plate to prevent icing and snow buildup, so you'll spend less time fiddling with your bindings and more time shredding.

  • DIN range of 7-16
  • Compatible with alpine, touring, and WTR boot soles
  • Hike-and-ride switch works with skis on
  • Double Fullflex
  • Low-profile chassis with 90° pivot
  • U Power toe piece
  • Oversized platform with aluminum double tubes
  • Not compatible with all boots—check your boot norm first

Unanswered Question

So I am interested the Atomic Tracker 13 MNC. They are listed as having 2 rise position for the heel. I was wondering what the different height positions are? The Fritschi Freeride Pro show 4 positions of 0, 3, 9, and 13 degrees. I can't find any information on the heights for these bindings or the Salomon Guardians which I believe are the same binding and would like to have some idea on the heights of the two different positions. Thanks.

Is it better to use slightly bigger bindings or slightly skinnier than the waist of yor skis? On 113mm ski waist would I be better with 110mm or 115mm?

Drake W.,

Go for the 115mm - you generally want the brake width to be equal to or up to about 10mm wider than the waist width of your ski.

Great binding!

The reason I initially chose this binding was because of its lower stand height(compared to all Marker AT bindings) and its perceived higher rigidity. I have been on both the Marker F12s and this and can say It is more rigid in the toe area and I do like the lower stand height as well as the toe pivot being closer to the my toes. However this binding is noticeably heavier.

This binding weighs nearly a full pound more per binding then the Tour F12s which is a noticeable difference. I however, will gladly deal with the extra weight on the uphill to be fully confident in my binding on the way downhill.

As noted below, after releasing your heal you have to move the heal riser to directly under your foot to keep the binding from clicking back in. The riser is fairly difficult to operate with a pole. I feel as though it will get easier over time.

Overall, despite a few design flaws, it is a fantastic, burly binding!

Only OK

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking for a binding on my Soul 7s to use for skinning uphill and also for just alpine skiing downhill. The description seemed to fit as they seemed beefy enough for the alpine job too. I have found them really cumbersome to work with skinning. Maybe it's the way that mine were mounted, but they are very difficult to release into lift mode (slide the grey button and lift heel binding up) and the heel lift is very difficult to adjust while you are skinning. Trying to flip them from lift to drop mode resulted in the lever going backward instead of forward and inadvertently locking the heel in place. Maybe I will like them more once I get more used to them, but so far.... eh.

Its Okay

I have these bindings mounted on a pair of 178 Faction Agent 90's. I use these skis both to tour and also for hard pack, icy conditions. The bindings work well for the most part. I only have one complaint. Because the release mechanism for going into touring mode is located at the rear of the binding (and not underneath the boot like in the marker bindings) there is nothing preventing them from releasing while skiing. Because the skis are pretty flexible, I like to play around by buttering on the tips and tails, but I've found that its very easy to flex the ski so much that the binding pops into touring mode. Because of this, I regret not purchasing a marker hybrid binding. Other than that, it is a good binding.

Hi! I just bought an old pair of Dynafit Aero Speed TF (3 buckle) boots.. Will those work with this binding?

Simple, easy, and quick!

This binding is a great quick binding for the backcountry and also if you only want one pair of skis with a binding that performs great on the hill. I'm 5'2" and 115lbs...this din is plenty for me and I feel very safe and comfortable in this binding.

Unanswered Question

I'm 5'5', 153lbs and buying some Pettitor 2014s for off piste and a little touring. I like to do small drops, playing around switch in the park and on piste, and charging some groomers every now and then. I am looking for a versatile binding that I can do some touring and play off piste in. My DIN sits around 6-7 depending on what I'm doing. I have about 9 seasons skiing and side-country guiding. Would these bindings suit? Would the 115 brake be ok for the 120 Pettitors? What other bindings might be good? Most of the bindings on this site seem to have smaller waist brakes. Cheers!

How do these differ from the Salomon Guardian WTR 13? It appears as though they are lighter, but will that affect their performance and safety when going downhill?

They're actually exactly the same, just branded differently. Salomon and Atomic are part of the same company. I looked at the weight on Salomon's site and they are saying the Guardian S and L both weigh 1495 grams per binding... Slightly misleading because the S does weigh a little less than the L. Our specs here might be showing different weights for that same reason.
Either way, when comparing Guardian vs Tracker same model year and same DIN range (13/16) performance would be the same - safety rating also the same. Hit me up if you have any other questions! LFeasler@backcountry.com
