Description

Point it at something steep and scary and charge forth.

Tyrolia has more than 80 years in the business of building ski bindings, and in the past decade it's begun to set its sights on the backcountry. The Adrenalin 16 Alpine Touring Binding allows you to access out-of-the-way powder stashes just like many other AT bindings, but this is a more alpine-focused, full-frame touring binding than many similar products. 

The heel and toe pieces are borrowed from their strong, reliable FR Pro series and both rest on the FR Pro frame and FreeFlex mounting platform. A quick flip of the AA-Ascender lock switches between ski and tour modes without requiring you to disengage your boot from the binding. In ski mode, the FreeFlex platform allows the FR Pro Frame (and holding the toe and heel pieces) to float atop the ski without inhibiting ski flex. Alone, this feature is a gift from the gods for many big-mountain skiers who want the benefits of an AT platform and who want to feel every inch of ski flex. Once back in tour mode, the Adrenalin pivots forward at the toe and utilizes a three-position climbing aid to help you effortlessly crush even the steepest of grades.

Wrought with alpine heritage, this is a 16 DIN alpine-touring binding that delivers responsiveness, efficiency, and security both on the way up the hill and on the way down. Purchase the short Adrenalin if you have a boot sole length of between 270 and 330mm, and purchase the long Adrenalin if your boot sole length measures between 300-360mm.

Not fully thought through

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The biggest issue with this binding is the metal-to-metal interface between the heel track and the clamp under the heels that engage while in Alpine mode. Ice collects between the two metal surfaces very quickly and thickly, especially as you step down onto the lower housing time and again throughout a tour. The metal freezes and collects ice on both sides, creating a layer of ice that, even after a short hike, is very difficult to break apart in order to engage Alpine mode. Often times it requires taking off the ski and manually excavating ice from the area. The toe piece is a bummer, also. Poor testing results, difficult for your shop guy (like me) to instal, and torsionally weak between toe and heel. The Salomon/Atomic Guardian/Tracker is heads above this binding in every way.

I am a 10.5 Mens shoe and havent bought my boots yet, should i get the short of the long?

Hey Jason,
It really depends on what boot you get! The small fits a sole length up to 330... You'll probably be in a Mondo size 28.5, which should be right around a 330mm sole length. But that would vary by manufacturer. A large would fit for sure (300-360mm), but you would probably want to confirm your sole length before going with the small, as it could be too small.
Hit me up if you have any other questions!

HI:

So my boots are 316mm length and the skis are 105 mm width. What size of binding would be more recommendable, that size fit in both short and long.
Second, what break would be recommendable, i am more inclined to the 115mm. Am I right?

Thanks in advance.

I would go with the small! It will definitely fit your boot, plus you save a little weight.
Yes you are right about the brake! 115 would be the way to go.

Brakes

Hey everyone just a heads up. This binding comes without brakes. They are sold separately.
