There's a reason there isn't a kit for Voile Switchbacks

G3 Targas are awful bindings. Bad at skiing, bad at touring, loud and squeaky, poor edge control, and oh yeah, they fall the hell apart -- hence this kit.

The kit itself does the job though, at least they're easy to put back together. Kind of like skiing on boards made from legos. 5/5 for the kit, 0/5 for the lego binding.

The backcountry binding kit is a must if you have Targa bindings. Inevitably they will fail, and in my case they failed over and over again. Don't get stuck walking. Save your self the trouble skip the Targas they suck.

Be Prepared for Failure

I hate G3 bindings. I will never use another pair in my life. I know, however, that there are a lot of folks who like them and swear by them. So if you're using them, that's fine by me. Everyone has their own preferences.
Be forewarned, though, that sooner or later, your G3's will fail. I broke three cables in one season. Fortunately, I never had a failure in the backcountry. If you're heading out of bounds, though, I would highly suggest that you buy a backcountry binding kit. Your bindings will break, and you will need these spare parts. If you don't use it, you can always return it at BC.com.

super helpful. hope you won't need 'em

it's got all the basics you need if you blow a cartridge or a heel piece. backcountry trip? put 'em in your pack. resort day? leave 'em in the car.

i learned my lesson late season last year at winter park having to walk my broken setup down derailer, then truck back home because i was out of parts.

don't let this happen to you! keep your spare parts on hand.

Necessary gear

The more you ski, there greater is the chance that part of your binding will break at the time you are least prepared for it. This happened to me, and nobody in the nearby towns (upper peninsula Michigan) carried anything. Luckily, I had a spare set of Riva Z repair parts for my old tele skis, and I was able to adapt that to my G3 bindings. I promptly bought this set and swapped out the Riva Z. My G3 bindings were just 3 years old and not that heavily skiied, and that's why I hadn't been in a hurry to equip myself with a replacement set sooner.

My only complaint is that I needed just the heel-lock (which was the part that cracked) and I would rather have had the opportunity to buy, say, 3 heel-locks. I had to buy the whole replacement set. It seems to me that the heel-lock is the most likely part to fail, and I would rather have the option to buy several alone--buying three new binding kits for a couple of back-up heel-locks is overkill. But I guess I'm a little glad I have the other stuff now . . . just in case.

Not sure what the heck to above users are doing to there G3s to breaking them so much??? I have 10+ years of trouble free use both in bounds and the backcountry. I have been hauling one of these kits around the whole time and wondering why I bothered...first cable just broke the other day at the resort and I had a back up.... These are great bindings if you know how to madjust them and more importantly aren't a gaper and don't thrash your gear.

Have recently switched to the Switch back which is great but has itz issues too.... to teleman (above) they do make a bc kit for switchback... I bought it with my binding as any smart bc skier would do!
