Do you bend your toe when you are in the binding. It doesn't seem like it would.Also, because over 40% of knee injuries happen when you fall back, does the binding release from backward pressure?

You do. I have a fellow tele teamer that uses these. And no, it doesn't have backwards release, but neither do other tele bindings. Sideways is better than nothing.

The voile CRB Harwire Releasable does. As a matter of fact, a snowboarder who is in the free rider program at my mountain asked for my opinion on the bindings that he should get and I recommended these. After riding in the park on them he thanked me because they saved him from injury by releasing backward a few times while jumping and such in the park.
