TLT Expedition Binding

If long tours across hanging alpine valleys and steep ascents up near vertical mountains sounds like your cup of tea, consider the Dynafit TLT Expedition Binding your Earl Grey. The TLT Expedition combines the burly toe piece of the Dynafit Radical with a lightweight and minimalist heel piece for fast and efficient backcountry travel. The heel piece borrows its design from randonnee race bindings, resulting in a simple and effective system that's intuitive to use in the alpine. The wide Radical toe piece and low stand height puts more power to the ski for added security during the descent, while the lack of lateral release helps prevent release when skiing in no-fall zones.

  • Dynafit's infamous tech ski binding with an expedition heel
  • Speed Radical toe piece with fixed front release
  • Expedition heel maximizes minimalism and eliminates lateral release
  • Single heel elevator assists with the steeps
  • Crampon slot
  • Item #DNF007J

These are as simple and mechanically efficient as possible. With no lateral release, these are NOT your daily driver bindings on the resort or in the backcountry. A crash that twists your knee or an avalanche takes you for a ride and your ski will not release! They are a quiver item and best for terrain where releasing a ski is not an option. If you are making jump turns down a steep face, have confidence that if you hit a patch of ice, you definitely will not accidentally release from your ski.

Light as a feather

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

yeah, the don't weigh. there's no other way to describe it. at 7 oz. you're only affected by the weight of your skis! They feel great. Ski like Dynafits. I haven't taken a tumble, so release may be a different experience, but they feel pretty much the same as my TLTs, and Radicals, just a bit closer to the ground with no risers. Installation is a bear. hire a professional with the jig. Though it can be done at home, it's such a stressful task, i wish it on no one.
