John's Bio

I'm a 21 year old ski bum, photographer (landscapes), and outdoor enthusiast and wannabe alpinist who works at a ski resort teaching kids to ski, running the lifts, making snow, and shooting photos, or anything else I can do to keep skiing for free and making enough money to eat.

The best of Alltime
5 5

Ok, so my title might not be justified since this is the only touring binding that I've used, but so far I have no complaints. In walking mode, I was amazed by how easy it was to get a nice kick-glide rhythm going. Paired with BD ascension skins, I was able to skin up very steep snow. The only thing that bothered me a little was that when they're in flat mode, it felt like the rear piece was taking a bit of a beating every time I went down, but there are no signs of a problem yet. I have to assume something this simple was thought of in the design process, so my guess is I'm worrying more than I should. When they're locked down, they're locked down and you can forget they're there. Operation is extremely simple. I can't always do it with my pole basket but I can easy bend down and flip the switch without unclipping. Weight doesn't seem to be an issue with me but I don't do any really long tours.

I'd say that unless you're counting every ounce, get these and you'll love them

Photo is just a chute I did while using the Alltimes

It should be mentioned that K2 skis are notoriously measured shorter than they are, don't know if that is true for this ski though.
