First off, first review is written by a sponsored Salomon skier, so big suprise he says they're awesome. Skied Salomon binders for years and they were always great. These are pure junk! Don't know what Ssalomon changed in their production. Heel piece developed significant slop after 2 days! Had Salomon warranty them and the next pair lasted a week! After skiing Salomon bindings for years, this is the last pair ever. 2 pairs that lasted a grand total of 8 days skiing. Absolute garbage!
