An AT binding for the long haul.
There's a lot to be said for lightness and reliability, but why waste words when you can take the Fritschi Diamir Scout Binding out for a spin and see for yourself? At 3.5 pounds per pair, it's not quite as light as a classic touring binding, but it's not too far off, and the ease of use and reliability of release more than makes up for the few extra ounces. Unlike tech clamps, the Scout is fully DIN certified, with a maximum release value of 11, so you can push it harder without worrying about popping out, and it has a compact design that's engineered to provide killer power transfer and stability when you're driving wider skis.
Of course, the Scout excels on the way up as well as the way down. The wide toe hinge is placed at the very front of the toe for an ergonomic and easy stride, while the four-level heel elevator lets you enjoy a comfortable and efficient climbing platform on flat, steep, and seriously steep skintracks. Fritschi also integrated a lock into the binding to prevent accidental switches into tour mode, which can have interesting consequences when you're ripping a wide-open line or teching your way down a tight couloir.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was looking for a binding that I could take touring, but still have the stability for skiing inbounds. These are user friendly, super light, and great on the downhill. The 4 heel heights is a nice feature too.
Wanting to get these for my wife, we will be mounting them on a 105-109mm underfoot ski that we haven't decided on yet. Maybe the K2 luvboat or atomic century 109, or even Dynastar Cham. With only a 95mm brake this creates an problem... Can't seem to find larger brakes so far...? Do they exist can you get them and or what other bindings similar do you recommend?
Hi Cannon, We have a good selection of other Alpine Touring frame bindings that would work with those little bit larger skis. I would check out the Marker Tour F12 or Fritschi Pro. If you have any other questions, please let me know. - Matthew Pizza - Expert Gearhead
