Why We Like The Fritschi Tecton 12 Bindings

When we're standing on top of a walled-in, 50-degree couloir, looking down at the steep face peppered with the footprints of our agonizing bootpack, we're extremely thankful to be clicked in to Fritschi Tecton 12 Bindings and ready to rip this gnarly line all the way down. The Tecton 12 uses the same nimble, uphill-friendly toe piece of the popular Vipec, which has quite a bit of lateral elastic travel to enhance retention when we're charging through crud and ice, while the heel piece is more similar to a traditional alpine binding to give us the security and confidence we need to slay the descent.

Re: Ski Break

I've used it several times
5' 6"

Thomas D's review from Jan 2022 inspired me to write this review. I've skied on these bindings for neither two seasons. I like them *but* they don't always function. To Thomas- you have to force the back lever up as hard as you can to pop the break down/propel the binding into walk mode. This does not always work- particularly when a fine dusting of snow gets in between the moving parts. It makes running laps in the backcountry rather unpleasant when the snow is powdery. This isn't completely unusual- I've had this happen with other bindings before. Just thought I'd say something. Otherwise I think they ski great- nearly as responsive as my downhill-only bindings.

Ski brake

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Size Bought:
5' 5"

Just got new boots and bindings for Christmas. I cannot figure out how to keep the brake up/ while in walk mode. Can you explain how to do this?

Broke on my first outing

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The plastic piece behind the lever for walk/ski mode broke off when I locked my boot into the toe piece. Cheap plastic quality. Not worth the $486
