Here's the beef.
Atomic's STH binding series have long been the clamps of choice for freeriders who want some extra beef when pointing their skis down big and burly lines, and the new STH2 16 WTR Ski Binding is the burliest in the line. With a DIN that maxes out at 16, an oversized platform for secure mounting and efficient power transfer, and a low-profile chassis to keep you close and connected to your skis, the STH2 16 is a binding built to drive big skis down even bigger lines. It's been newly updated to be compatible with Atomic/Salomon's WTR rockered boot soles as well as traditional alpine soles, so you can switch back and forth from your Guardian or Tracker bindings to your STHs without having to switch 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.

My Go-To Binding
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought my first pair of STH bindings 5 years ago, and I haven't skied anything else since. I now have three pairs, one on each of the skis in my quiver. Although they have changed the design a little bit over the years, upgrading the design of the heel piece as well as the toe piece to add WTR compatibility, the performance hasn't suffered. I have never had any problems pre-releasing out of these bindings and they have saved my knees a couple of times when I have taken bad falls by releasing when they need to.
This is the exact same binding as the Salomon STH2 WTR 16, it just has a different paint job and and Atomic logo on it. These will be compatible with any standard alpine ski boot as well as boots with WTR (Walk to Ride) rockered soles.
