This is a solid lightweight/high performance binding. The 5-15 DIN rating caters to a very wide range of skier types. Pre-releases are a thing of the past with this binding, but it will let you go when needed. However, the best part about these things is how easy it is to step in and out of these things. Much easier than the equivalent look/rossignol PX/FKS bindings. I've been on them for about 2 months and am completely satisfied up to this point with this binding.
