Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used these bindings for one full season of training, putting an average of 30-40 miles a week in every sort of conditions from steep, icy climbs to long flat slogs. I do enjoy the feeling of clicking into these bindings, they are stiff and deliver good, reliable power transmission to the ski. They have not pre-released yet and I haven't had any trouble with them while touring or skiing. However, I have broken the tips off of two poles trying to change from tour mode to ski mode, and the heel piece tends to gather lots of ice which needs to be chipped out any time you want to switch. They make the mode switch look easy in the videos, but performing the task in the backcountry is not nearly as carefree. Even switching the heel risers on/off often requires hands. With another season of work, these could be awesome but they have a few issues that make them difficult to fully recommend.
