Why We Like The ION 12 Binding
The G3 ION 12 Binding crushes in on the way down, to be sure, but it'd be pretty worthless if it didn't go up like the dickens, too. It'd be hyperbolic to call it revolutionary, but the Ion introduces a whole host of killer features without compromising the classic two-pin toe and heel tech design that's worked so well for so long.
G3 started by giving the Ion an adjustable forward-pressure setting, which allows 22mm of adjustment to ensure a super-solid connection between the heel of your boot and the heel piece of the binding, reducing vibration and helping to eliminate chatter. This gives the Ion a smoother, less rattly feel than traditional tech setups and makes sure that it'll release consistently, but only when it's necessary (its release values run as high as 12, if you're wondering). The mounting pattern is 33% wider than standard tech bindings, as are the toe jaws, making it easier to get power to the edges of wide skis and reducing vibration for an easier, more powerful ride in rugged conditions. G3 even built in a Boot Stop step-in guidance system, which employs two bumpers that let you settle your boot down in the right spot without trying and retract when you click into ski mode to stay out of the way.
