As I was inspecting my set up prior to storing them for the season, I noticed the AFD plates on both bindings had cracked. They were set up at local shop and I checked the AFD height at various times during the year. Atomic agreed to send new plates (to a certified shop, not to me) but I am begining to worry about their long term durability.Time will tell I guess...
I now have ~60 days on these bindings...Yesterday while skiing a buddy noticed that the pin that the toe piece pivots on had come loose and was half way out. I was very lucky to catch this when I did and not get hurt. Yikes! I do ski these very hard. I will be sure to inspect that pin ocassionally!
I have about 40 or so days on these bindings both in and outside the ropes.In all, they are great option for slackcountry type guys.They do have some quirks though. The heel piece on mine had play in them out of the box, but it does not affect how they ski at all. I would also add that I have had to crank up the DIN higher than what I normally would on Dukes, but once you get them to the right spot they ski very well.Other than the weight, my only gripe on the touring side is that the heel riser has 2 heights. Any extended flat terrain can get uncomfortable.They seem to have a better stride and they do sit a bit lower to the ski than Dukes as well.
I broke it... I loved the binding before that. Super solid in alpine mode. Can never had it release on me no matter how hard I pushed it (and I pushed it pretty hard). Unfortunately the rails on one of my binding snapped clean off right at the rivet into the toe piece during some mellow touring on Teton Pass. I had logged 30+ days of pretty intense touring so I'm not super surprised, but definitely a little disappointed. Should have bought from backcountry.com!

I got these for my boyfriend as a gift. He hasn't had a chance to go out and use them, but he is very happy with the sizing and quality.
I can only give these 4 because I haven't taken them on a longer tour yet, but first impressions of the important part (the skiing performace) were much better than I expected. These ski very solid and sit lowish to the ski, so it feels like a typical, solid alpine ski binding. I'm sure people will complain about these being a bit on the heavy side, but you can always get more fit to hike with more weight, but you can't make up for a chintzy binding when you need it.
I finally toured in these bindings and they worked perfectly. No frills, easy ski to tour mode without clicking out of your binding. Only gripe, if you can call it that, is it would be nice to have a little bit taller of a riser in tour mode. Other than that, Money.
Looks awesome paired up with the Armada JJ's, and works even better than it looks!

This is my first AT bindings. When doing research into getting some I instantly was drawn to this bindings because of the burly construction and low and wide profile of the bindings. Also the tour mode looked super easy to use as well.
I was spot on. I have done two skins since I got this binding and one resort day. The binding functioned great and has an awesome stride to it. It is easy to work and easy to adjust while skinning. The downhill performance is incredible. You really cannot tell the difference at all. My other ski setup have Marker Jester Pro's and the Tracker feels so similar to them its unreal.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Awsome skiing binding. The stiffness of this binding is unmatched.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I bought these for my boyfriend to complete his touring setup and he loves them. Versatile, durable, and low-profile, these are a great buy. I couldn't have picked up a better gift.
If I need a 110mm brake, what do you recommend on these bindings?
Thanks for the question. I would recommend on the Atomic Tracker 16 Alpine Touring Binding to go with the 130 as bending a brake 15mm will most likely hinder the function of the brake and possibly the binding itself.
Are these the exact same as the Guardians? They seem to be
yes, they are, Solomon and Atomic design teams worked together to come up with this bomber climber.
The Tracker binding is burly enough to handle the beating of the ski area and then is maximized for the sidecountry and backcountry missions with its easy switch between ski and climb mode.� I really enjoyed and was impressed by the strength and ease of use this binding provided. It has good torsional stability, while skiing and climbing, and the 2 riser positions are ample, one thing to take note is that you cant skin in a totally flat position, so long flat slogs will be a little uncomfortable.
