    A revolution in lightweight race bindings.

    Going with a lightweight race binding has meant that you're going to have to forgo both the security of a brake and the added safety of adjustable release values. This is not the case with the Dynafiit TLT Superlite 2.0 12 Binding. Celebrating 30 years of binding innovation, Dynafit's release of the TLT Superlite 2.0 opens a new chapter in the world of lightweight rando race bindings with the addition of the same safety features you'd find on a binding three times the weight of the TLT Superlite.

    The newly re-designed heel piece now has adjustable lateral release values ranging from 6-12. The added safety of this feature will give skiers the added security they need to get after it on the descent, without feeling like they need to hold back. For skiers that prefer the added security of a brake, the TLT Superlite can be set up with brakes (sold separately) in sizes available in 75, 90, and 105mm. The toe maintains the proven design of the Superlite with a fixed release value, but now has a more secure four hole mounting pattern for better retention to the ski. The toe is crampon compatible, but the attachment point can be removed when weight is an issue. Now, you might be asking yourself what the weight penalty of all these features is, but with a weight of just over 12 ounces per pair, (or 175g each) the TLT Superlite truly lives up to its name without sacrificing a gram of safety in the process.

    • 6-12 lateral release values
    • Fixed front release
    • Two position heel risers
    • Brake compatible (brakes sold separate)
    • Crampon compatible

    Confidence boosters

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Having a release function is not only superlight, but super NICE. These are comparable to the low techs on every front, but the release function makes them more versatile for non-race days. I want them on every ski.

    Definitely light, Definitely Super!

      The lightness is the obvious, the bomber-ness is the surprise. I was highly suspicious of this binding, especially since it was my first touring binding. My first runs were on an extremely icey 50 degree slope in Bolivia, needless to say I didn't have anything to worry about (well aside from the questionable street meat consumed a few days before). Just make sure whomever is mounting them is spot on as it's not adjustable.

      Super Binding

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've been using these bindings on midweight (90mm-) and lightweight (75mm) skis for the past few years and they're great. Don't let the minimal look of these bindings fool you. They're bomber! I think Dynafit has found the perfect balance between performance and light touring with this binding.

      Super Binding

      Once you go Superlite, you never go back

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've put over 300 ski days on the Dynafit Superlite bindings, and I can't believe why I was carrying around so much extra weight before finding these. They are my everyday binding, and I routinely take air, ski pillow lines with them, and ski them at high speed. Likewise, I trust them on remote, week-long + ski traverses, and have frequently used them with a heavy camera or expedition pack. Every time you pick up your skis, you will smile at just how light they are.

      My go to ultralight backcountry binding

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Ive had this binding on a pair of Dynafit Denalis the last two years and have been so impressed with its mix of being bomber, lightweight and functional. I like the different settings for the various grades of uphill and have enjoyed skiing some very committing lines with confidence. Highly recommended.

      The best binding available

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I think this is the best backcountry ski binding available. It's something I have 100% trust in, such as when skiing hard snow above exposure, in remote locations, and even just everyday powder skiing and guiding. Having put a couple hundred days of use on more than one pair, I can attest to their durability as well. And the weight savings vs. the Speed Turn? I think it is significant and noteworthy. My advice: invest in a pair of these bindings, you'll be happy in the long run that you did.

      Light and durable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this binding day in and day out for both ski guiding and personal use and I have been consistently impressed. The weight is comperable to a race binding but the durability is much greater. I've used this binding on skis up to a 105 waist and have had zero issues. If you want to add adjustment there are adjustment plates available through dynafit that allow you to use it with several different BSL's . Bottom line if you want a light binding that you can rely on day in and day out this is the binding for you.

      An ideal ski mountaineering binding!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I put this binding on my Spring ski mountaineering skis as more than any other type of ski, light is right here. This binding is so light that it can make even a heavier ski turn into a lightweight ski mountaineering setup. With firm snow very common in the Spring, I find myself booting up things more often, which means the skis are on my back. With this binding, my setup stays light - which is critical to me when carrying skis!
      Overall, the binding is classic Dynafit - no frills, but full function. The only thing I would change about this binding is to elongate the front lever so it would be a bit easier to pull up with my pole grip - I hate bending over! Otherwise, its beauty is in its simplicity. Be sure to add on the ski crampon attachment as it doesnt come with the binding, but its nice to have! I also use the ski stoppers (brakes) on mine. They are easy to put on and off, so you can use them when you want, and take them off when grams matter.

      Strong, Light, Next Level

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The TLT Superlite 2.0 binding (12 din) sets the standard for lightness and durability. It's completely unmatched. I own three pairs now and don't plan on switching to another binding system anytime soon. From driving larger skis (BMX105) to smaller, lighter skis, (TX90), these bindings provide the perfect bridge from boot to ski and allow the athlete to maintain control and ski strong on the downhill as well as tour efficiently on the up. The lack of a level or flat touring platform (the binding tours on a two-level heel riser system) is easily dealt with when using a ski boot with 60-degree cuff rotation or by twisting the binding sideways to provide space for a level platform (not recommended by Dynafit). I've found the lightness of this binding, combined with its excellent build, provides the perfect combination for ski mountaineers and backcountry ski tourers looking to make their systems more efficient but not wanting to sacrifice durability. If you're concerned with the price tag, and want your investment to last for years, this is it. A perfect investment. Great additions to this binding: it's easy to attach ski crampons and remove brakes when you don't feel they are necessary. Personally, I never use the brakes, but its great to be able to seamlessly attach and detach them based on your needs. A highly recommended investment.

      Great Binding

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have these mounted on a pair of 182 Dynafit Hokkaidos set up to ski with my Vulcans and I absolutely love the set up. The heel retention has not been an issue and there is a noticeable weight savings over the original radicals that I had been skiing. Broke in this set up on a 3-day hut trip with a pretty long approach. No complaints!

      Lightweight!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I gave these as a gift for a friend that needed new gear after a skiing accident and he had this to share (mounted to his Black Diamond skis):

      "The name of these bindings is appropriate because they are super light! They have worked perfect so far and I love the optional break! I wish they had a little adjustment for different boots but for the weight they are worth it."

      So Light...

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Scooped these as a gift for a friend and here's what he has to say about them: "So light you wonder how you're attached to your skis

      These bindings are pretty amazing for the weight. They do exactly as they're supposed to and they have a din setting as well for the extra piece of mind that you won't leave your knee blown out on the hill. The green brings out the color in any color eyes which is an added bonus. Mounting yourself can be a little finicky since there is a very small margin of error since the rear pins aren't adjustable like other bindings are. Save some weight and get to the top faster with more energy to spare."

      Pretty Sweet

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

      I used these on a day tour on spring corn at Castle Lake. They're mounted on denalis and are adjusted to my vulcans.

      The lightness is not something I can compare to prior experience; however, I did find this VERY light setup to be helpful throughout the day. A flat touring mode can be achieved by rotating the heel piece 90 degrees instead of the full 180. I did this, and the heel did not seem to rotate unintentionally.

      Getting into the toe piece requires some precision to make it easy. Inserting one toe pin, lining up the other, then stepping down worked well for me, even on a 30 degree slope.

      I did take a small fall without releasing at the heel or toe on both skis. This was nice, as I felt more confident that the binding would not prerelease as easily. A note on that, however, is that snow tended to penetrate the openings in the toe piece chassis, and build up on the inside of it. This could, potentially, block the travel of the spring arms, and inhibit the toe piece from engaging properly with the boot. This could lead to a prerelease of the toe.

      Pretty Sweet

      I'm looking to make a decision on what tech bindings to get this year. I ski aggressively, and am looking to go all AT this year. I'm trying to figure out if I should go with these superlites, the tlt radical ft (or st?) 2s, or the marker kingpins. I am leaning torwards the superlites (because of the weight), but I get concerns with things that are unknown to me - will I wish I had a higher heel riser, will I wish that there was a flat touring mode (although, it sounds like one can turn the heel unit perpendicular to the ski to achieve this)? I'm not planning on doing any long tours, my reason for leaning towards a light binding is so that I can get up the hill quickly without being overtired. Setup will be some volkl nanuqs and dynafit vulcans.

      Frank, some of it depends on your height and weight when deciding a binding, and that goes along with what you want or intend to do with it. When your using the binding do you intend to do some pretty hard skiing? Aggressive and fast through chop? If thats the case I'd say the Superlite is not for you, then I would bump up to the Radical ST or FT 2.0 depending on what your DIN is normally set at. Its a better skiing binding that can handle some more abuse out there compared to the Superlite. I am a huge fan of lightening the load but, you need to find that sweet spot between light weight and function, so I need some more info to help you decide and narrow down your choices.



      Would you wish you had a higher heel rise? - With the Vulcans in particular, they have such a good range of motion, you would probably get along just fine without the extra higher heel riser. You are correct they also can go into flat mode by turning the binding, need to bend over to do this though.



      Ill send this over in an Email as well if thats an easier way to communicate.

      I'm also considering the Superlites. I recently checked them out at my local Black Diamond retail shop and the sales associate showed me that you CAN have a third level of rise by rotating the heel piece 180 degrees. As Bill mentioned, this does involve bending over or an awkward reach while balancing on one ski. So in essence, you have 4 possible positions of heel elevation. I also agree with the previous comment in that with the range of motion of the newer Dynafit boots, the highest riser position is rarely needed. Judging by the rest of your setup, I would probably lean toward the new Radical 2.0 with the extra release capabilities, or as Bill suggested the older model FT or ST. To keep things in perspective, the weight savings with the Superlites over the older model ST's would be roughly the equivalent of two cans of PBR. I personally own a pair of Radical FT's mounted on Carbon Megawatts, and I love that setup for everyday touring. I just bought a pair of Carbon Converts and plan on putting the Superlites on them for really big days when every ounce matters. If you are planning on having one ski/binding setup for both inbounds and touring, I think you will be better off sacrificing a few ounces for the extra safety and durability of the FT or ST choices.

      Thanks everyone for the help on this. Pretty much what I expected, but with the new wave of dynafit bindings released, and the limited information I've found on them (the superlites) so far, I was hoping they could do the job. Maybe they'll make the cut when I get my next pair.
