Rough, tough, and compatible with all your boots.
Atomic's STH series of bindings have long been the clamps of choice for freeriders who fancy big and burly binders, and the new STH2 13 WTR Ski Binding is certainly tough enough to handle big lines, drops, and high speeds. It starts with a DIN that maxes out at 13, then adds an oversized platform for secure mounting and efficient power transfer, and a low-profile chassis to keep you close and connected to your skis. It's compatible with both standard alpine soles as well as Atomic and Salomon's WTR rockered boot soles, so you can switch back and forth from your Guardians or Trackers to your STHs without switching out boots or soles.
The STH2 WTR still has the classic 3D Driver Toe for consistent multi-directional release, serious elastic travel to prevent pre-releasing, and progressive transfer pads to serve up a smooth, vibration-free ride. The wings and toe height are easy to adjust, so you can nail the perfect fit without missing out on the pow because you had to fiddle around in the shop for an hour.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a solid binding for all mountain performance. The toe has giant wings so I have no fear of popping out early when I'm railing turns on a groomer, and the heel peice has one of the widest mounting patterns on the market so you can ensure great power transfer will occur. I really enjoyed the rubber pads underneath the binding, you can really notice a shock absorbtion when you hit a flat landing. This binding is also compatible with WTR soles with only a simply toe height adjustment.
I'd recommend this binding to anyone who is looking for a hard charging binding, with an easy step in heel.

My did indeed come with brakes...
I got these to mount on my new Fischer Ranger 98s 188cm and have had 3 awesome ski days so far with them. So far they have exceeded my expectations.
Bought these back in April, and the bindings shipped without brakes, WTF? In addition, Backcountry doesn't carry these brakes.
