If only all equipment were this easy to use.
The Salomon SNS Pilot Sport Skate Binding is an excellent binding for beginning skaters and dedicated, fitness-focused skiers alike. The Sport Skate Binding features full-length guide ridges that help you maintain better control of the ski throughout your glide. This, combined with the simple, automatic retention system make your day more about skating, and less about fussing with gear. Simply step into the binding to engage it, and use your pole or a finger to press the button at the front to release it. The Pilot Sport Skate's 120 flex rating makes it an ideal choice for training days and weekend laps at the track.
The Pilot Sport also utilizes the SNS Pilot binding system, a unique, two-axis binding-to-boot connection system shared by the entire Salomon performance and sport family, a full-length guide ridge, and a rearset toe pivot. Although not all of the bindings share a rigid second link in the aforementioned dual axis system, the Sport does, and this rigid link ensures maximum influence over torsional rigidity. Combine this improved rigidity with the advantage in ski control offered by the guide ridge underfoot and the benefit of the natural foot roll encouraged by the rearset pivot point, and you have a binding that helps you get the most out of your sport or performance ski.
- Universal mounting allows you to mount this binding to either a SNS interface plate (Wedge Plate) mounted to a ski or directly onto the topsheet of a flat ski
- An Atomic SNS binding can be mounted over the NIS plate on a NIS skate ski use an interface plate (Wedge Plate) which additionally provides a 5mm underfoot lift. This underfoot lift gives you more room to fully angle your ski on edge when skating and it improves ski control and glide-through acceleration.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I found these bindings very simple and easy to use. Skating, on the other hand, not so much.

Salomon decided to bring their Pilot system to those that seek automatic bindings. Though they seem to do the job (in that they attach you to the ski) they tend to freeze up often. They are also just hard on the hands if you have bad aim and can't push the button with the end of your pole. I much, much prefer the manual version even at the extra cost.
