    Expand your playground.

    With the retention and release of a traditional alpine binding and touring performance that'll expand your playground, the Atomic Tracker 16 Alpine Touring Binding could definitely be the clamp you use every time you're on snow this season. It skis like an alpine binding, with a rugged U Power toe, oversized platform, and a DIN that goes all the way to 16, but it'll get you up to to those stomach-churning lines you want to ski too, thanks to the 90-degree toe pivot, flat nose, and hike-and-ride switch that can be operated while you're still locked into the binding. The Tracker certainly isn't as light and fast as a tech binding, but if you're more interested in short tours and big lines than long approaches and techy skiing, then it's the right binding for your brand of big mountain skiing.

    For the most part, the Tracker remains unchanged with the same bomber downhill performance and the added convenience of the Multi-Norm Compatibility (MNC) all intact. 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 perfect in a matter of minutes. 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.

    2nd pair in one season failed.

    Read the other review. Just get a different pair of bindings. I couldn't repair these in the field on a ski tour yesterday and was forced to boot out.

    Major problem: The aluminum rails have hardly any durability where the rivets were put in as seen in this photo. Honestly it would probably be a safe bet to just go with a tech binding set up and a solid DH setup.
    At Crested Butte last year my friend on the CBMR ski patrol said all the patrollers had the bindings fail on them back in 2014.

    2nd pair in one season failed.

    2nd Failure In One Season

    These Guardians/Trackers use aluminum rails which are prone to breaking right on the pins. There is not enough structural integrity or company integrity to make a sound touring binding. Also they shortened there warranty period and no longer have a U.S. phone number so its easy to get short handed by Atomic/Salomon now.

    2nd Failure In One Season

    Bombproof? Not at all sadly.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using Atomic Tracker 16/Salomon Guardian 16 bindings for the last 3 seasons with both companies logos on them. They have been fantastic for those who want performance over light weight specs. Unfortunately I bought another pair for some new skis this season and within 70 days on the slope I put them into tour mode to begin a recent tour and my left heel fell off; clean snap on the aluminum rails. The major flaw that Salomon/Atomic needs to fix is replacing the aluminum chassis underfoot with something more durable in the winter environment. They should have more forethought on material choice. For a so called freeride binding I expect to be able to do nose butters in powder, inverts and cliff stomps without the binding failing. Aluminum rails are not suitable for a sport where the ski is going to be flexing constantly and also in cold temps. I have also had other shredders have the same problem with this binding snapping in half.
    Until they fix this problem I would not recommend this binding until they update the construction of the frame underfoot.

    Overall

      First ever touring binding and am very happy about it so far. Mounted them on 185 Nordica Patrons. Very close to ski, feels like a normal downhill binding when riding. Very wide as well and I have noticed this really helps transmit power into my fatter skis. It is also very easy to switch in and out of touring mood and the two climbing modes are easy to figure out and have been more than sufficient for touring the Wasatch. I ride these about 75% in bounds at Alta and 25% touring around. Will see about longevity.
      Bottom Line: I highly recommend this binding
