Description

A lightweight binding with the added security of brakes.

Stop dinking around with heavy backcountry touring bindings. Step into the G3 Onyx Binding w/Brakes and cruise up the hill. When you're ready to slide back down, easily convert to ski mode without taking your boot out. In the event that you have to cross a stretch of flat terrain to get back to the car, you can put the Onyx back into tour mode without taking the ski off.
  • Brakes stay out of the way when you're skiing or touring and deploy quickly to stop your ski from getting first tracks without you
  • Heel mechanism shifts forward and back to give you the ability to go from tour mode to ski mode without removing boot from binding
  • Mounting plate system means toe and heel attach to separate mounting plates (Tech system) so you get 33mm of adjustment and can maintain boot-center on the ski
  • High- and low-lift heel options are reliable and super easy to engage with your pole basket
  • High-strength, forged aluminum components for a stiff, rigid connection between boot and binding, and binding and ski
  • Releasable with both forward-falling and lateral-twist settings
  • Easily make adjustments to the Onyx binding with a simple multi-tool

Hi,
I have an 88mm ski and was wondering if the 95mm brakes would be to big? Are there any other considerations about the sizing?
Thanks,
Scott

No real issue with the 7mm difference, especially on a touring setup.

Can you tell me if this binding comes with the front heel cowling if I don't want to install the brake? Thanks in advance!

Responded on

No. You would need to get that separately or order a non-brake (leash) version of the binding.

Hello, what year or generation are these? I love the site, but it's often vague about this. As I understand it there were some issues with the early gen of these and I'd like to know what to expect.
Cheers

Responded on

These are the winter 10/11 version. All 1st gen issues have been worked out. 11/12s have a few improvement tweaks.

Would this binding hold up to a lot of resort use? I snowboard primarily but am beginning to learn to ski, so I would still be learning a lot while using this binding. So this binding will probably be used 90% in-bounds. Will it hold up to and perform fine on harder snow? (and I'm sure this is a stupid question, but I'm not really familiar with ski jargon, this binding will work with any standard ski boot, right?) thanks!!!

Jeremiah, It will work great for the resort and hard snow. It's torsionally very rigid, so you get a solid connection to the ski. As far as boots go, it will ONLY work with those that have tech binding fittings in the toe & heel. This means specific models from Dalbello, Tecnica, Dynafit, Scarpa, Black Diamond, Garmont.

The sizes are for the brake width. Check what size your ski waist is and go with the next larger brake size (for example: a 92mm waist would need a 95mm brake).

Are there different versions of this binding? As in updates/fixes to them each year? If so, are these the newest version?
Thanks

Responded on

There are slight mods each year but usually nothing totally different

Best Answer Responded on

This is the 2010/2011 model. All 09/10 problems with the brake and the elevators were fixed. It's good to go. I rocked it hard all last winter. For this season, the toe pin gets ice-cutting serrations and all other changes are cosmetic. Hope this helps.
Enjoy!
