Just picked up some 10th Mountain Skis....
Just picked up some 10th Mountain Skis. Will mainly be skiing backcountry. Is the HH a little much for the 10th Mountains or will this binding work well? thanks in advance!
As much as I love the hammerhead, I think that it would be a little much for the 10th mtn. These bindings are heavy, active and absolutely bombproof. The latter is always good, but having a binding this heavy on your light waxless setup won't mesh well. I would look at a lighter binding for your skis, maybe a Voile 3-pin hardwire, which is also significantly cheaper and more tourable(The hammerhead is not free pivot, adn even though the hardwire isn't either, you can undo the wire for less resistance). Also, the Voile Switchback would be a great combo for the 10th mountain, and it has a free pivot mode as well. Happy Shopping!
