Broke on my second run at Silverton, putting a damper on an awesome day. Only skied 5 days on these bindings before they broke. The heel piece needs to be made out of metal where it comes into contact with the boot. I would suggest taking a good look at the new AT bindings coming out next season before settling for these.
Trying to find a new jacket/shell for the ski season. Looking for something breathable and not to hot. How does the powder bowl fair?
These are the best bindings out there. These things are bear traps, I have never pre released while clamped into these monsters. Whenever I have ejected my knee has never been tweaked in any weird way. The only bad thing is when I ski in any other type of binding my confidence goes down. Get these bindings you will not be disappointed!
