Fly to the tip with the Fritschi Diamir Eagle Binding.
- Diamir Gliding Technology uses a moving baseplate to follow your foot's natural roll-off point while you tour, which reduces that weird tip-toe feeling
- Wider baseplate underfoot for enhanced power transmission and stability
- Sliding binder bar underfoot allows your ski to flex more naturally as you add pressure
- Optional Axion tech lets you attach Fritschi's Axion ski crampon (sold separately) for added grip when traversing slopes with sketchy run outs
- A four-level heel elevator flips up easily using the end of your pole and helps you comfortably skin up a variety of slope angles

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are almost the same bindings as the old diamir titanal. The only difference is that it feels tougher, and the pivot is a little bit closer to the foot, which is supposed to be better for uphill (cannot feel the difference, but I think it is true...). Scout binding is cheaper and is more closer to the old Diamir Titanal. Same weight as ever. Perfect for a ski dedicated to ski touring and ski resort (for a pure ski touring, I guess Lowtechs bindings are better).
BD diamir Eagle review
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I used these bindings on my Black Diamond Zealot powder skis 3 times over the past week and in 11" of powder at a ski resort this weekend. I skinned up in the morning before the lifts opened. I am pleased to say these are great bindings and I am happy with them. You can easily adjust the binding lock with a ski pole and adjust it to the different incline settings. They feel very smooth and secure. I used them for several hours skiing down intermediates and black diamonds with no problems. When the powder packed down I switched to my alpine skis. I did purchase the wider ski brakes.
Sweet and light bindings
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The first thing I noticed with these bindings is how light they are. If you compare them with marker bindings these are half the weight, easy. I initially purchased the scout 11 and unhappy with how lightweight they were and thought they might give me problems. The eagle have beefier mounts and all around more durable. I put these on my BD Zealot 110 skis. A wider brake by diamir is required. If mounting on new skis make sure your shop has the "new" jig or the holes wont line up properly. I have yet to try them out in the backcountry so a better review will come.

do these come with the breaks or do the breaks need to be purchased separately?
They have breaks but they are hard to see in that picture. the brakes are only 95mm.

I am replacing worn Fritschis and will use them for backcountry touring only.My din is at 6.
Which binding do you recommend - the scout or the eagle?
I recommend going with the Scout.You'll be right in the sweet spot of the din range.
Would not trust my life to them...will leave you stranded
Full discloser , I am splitboarder. My BC partner does ski and has had this completely break on him multiple times on the tour in and on the downhill. The plastic cannot take the abuse of moving and flexing in tour mode.
These are great!
First time out with these and my new K2 she's back ski. Love them! Easy to use. I could make all the changes I needed with my ski pole.

I'll put the bindings on my BD Joule ski and I will use them sometimes with with touring boots and some other with alpine ski boots. Should I take the Diamir Eagle or Diamir Freeride Pro Binding? What the difference?
freeride pro has a higher DIN and is about 1lb heavier. so it depends on how you ride and where..... eagle for pure touring or freeride pro for everything.
What is the size of the brake on this...
What is the size of the brake on this binding? Or if there are options on the brake size then how would I choose them?
According to BD's website, the Eagle comes with a 95mm brake. You can purchase wider brakes if need be from their site or Backcountry (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-fritschi-diamir-ski-brakes).
