Rubydo wrote a review of Fritschi Diamir Freeride Binding on April 26, 2003
These bindings are terrific. Why buy anything else? They provide the best solution for someone who spends time both in and out of bounds, and who doesn't want to mess with two pairs of skis. They offer plenty of security for resort bashing, with the flexibility of heel release for backcountry randonnee. They are reasonably light (certainly lighter than most alpine bindings), and best of all, they are cheaper than most alpine bindings. I have put one pair through two rugged seasons, including backcountry in the Alps and lots of schussing in the Sierras, and have not had any problems such as pre-releases. In fact, since their introduction two years ago, you see almost nothing else amongst guides and serious skiers in the Alps.
