    TLT Speed Binding

    If there's one thing Dynafit knows best it's speed. Simplicity, durability, and function strike a balance in the TLT Speed Binding. Weighing in at just 570 grams per pair, these bindings are light enough to please weight-conscious skiers and strong enough to give you the confidence to rip that 2,000-foot couloir you just scurried up. Two heel riser settings keep your time on the skintrack smooth and efficient, while Ice Breaker pins keep snow and ice out of your boots to ensure reliable boot-to-binding retention.

    • Lightweight tech binding for long tours in the backcountry
    • 6-12 release value range for intermediate to advanced skiers
    • Two heel risers for efficient uphill travel
    • Adjustable lateral release for added safety
    • Ice Breaker pins for quick and secure step-in
    • Optional ski brakes available (sold separate)
    • Item #DNF00D0

    Simple and lightweight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This binding is super lightweight and still beefy enough to handle skiing steep off piste lines. The longer toe piece ski/walk mode lever makes it super easy to go back and forth from ski and walk modes. The low profile heel rotation piece also makes this binding really easy to step in and out of. There is less play in these bindings than the speed turn which can make it really hard to rotate the heel piece while going from walk to ski mode with skis still on. The low profile heel risers are also a great addition to this binding making a fast efficient change in climbing angle.

    Overall I've been pretty happy with these bindings. As a full time ski guide and sponsored Dynafit athlete I trust these bindings to preform at a high standard day in and day out.

    Simple and lightweight

    Light and Effective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great for long tours while still maintaining a sufficient DIN range to feel confident skiing aggressively on the way down. If you're used to skiing without brakes, this is definitely a binding work checking out. The newer version has two plastic bumps on the base of the heel piece to prevent unwarranted heel rotation when in touring mode (this was an issue on some of the older version models after many many miles). The toe tab is long and makes switching between tour and ski mode easier than with other setups. Solid choice for those who are interested in a light, fast setup that still allows for some serious skiing.

    My favorite binding of all-time

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Full disclosure: I am a Dynafit ambassador and was given a pair of these bindings to test in early 2017. I have about 50-days of touring on them.

    The short story: This is the best binding I’ve ever used. In my opinion it is the perfect balance of weight, durability and function.

    Longer version: I have roughly 50-days of touring on these bindings, mostly in “ski mountaineering” conditions, not just pow. They have held up great and show no signs of wear. The simplicity of the design has made it so there is far less “play” in these bindings than the Speed Radicals. They are light, strong and have performed perfectly, day in and day out.

    Some little “tricks”: the tolerance on these bindings is tight – maybe just a little too tight. Or, I’m a weakling. The binding has a good system for preventing auto-rotation. (It has never happened to me with these bindings.) The flip side is that it can be a little tough to rotate the binding from tour to ski mode. I had to figure out my process for getting enough leverage. Clicking into the heel unit is similar to race bindings. You kind of have to push hard to click the boot in. You want to make sure you’re free of snow and ice, and if you’re in a tricky place, keep your toe locked until your set. Lastly, the mounting bracket for ski crampons is also tight. There’s no slop, but it took awhile to break these in.

    Overall: Again, I am a huge fan. They are going on all my new skis for this year.
