- Q & A
broke on second run
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The conditions on Mount Sunapee were hard-packed and icy in spots. On my second run using these leashes, my ski skidded out and I fell to my side. When I got up, the clamp had sheared off completely. I find it hard to imagine that G3 would use such a weak metal that could break so easily.
Only my second day of use and the gear failed! What a safety hazard!
Don't buy those
I've bought two pairs of these leash and they all broke after 1 year use. Same thing happened to few friends of mine. It usually breaks around the pivot piece. Probably badly designed.
On top of it, they are hard to put on and off the boots.
I would recommend you to look at the black diamond clip wire ski leash, which are easy to use and haven't failed on me yet.
Go with the BD clips
I've tried these and the BD clips simultaneously on different sets of boards. The thumb trigger to open the latch can be tricky to handle with gloves on. I've also looked down a few times to find these completely disengaged - not sure exactly how they came off. I prefer the BD biner clips over these.
not a good design
-The swivel clip is a problem which forces me to use 2 hands, or unglove.
-metal hinge freezes, making it difficult to open.
-This clip can be found in any hardware store for a couple $$
-I find the BD clip much easier to use
one of my leashes had a metal fracture of the dog clip that attaches to the ski boot. I contacted Backountry that Monday and I had a new pair at my door that following Wednesday. I am sure
That was an unusual manufacturing defect. As always I found Backcountry always cooperative when I have had a Gear Problem. To the guy who inquired about the cable length 6 1/2 in. Could be 2 1n. longer and not interfere with skiing.
They get the job done. But personally I thought they were very expensive for what you get. I couldn't make my extra snowboard leashes work, so I shelled out for these. Its a great product, very durable, but not worth $23. Hopefully they will last a LONG time
These are alright. They are hard to attach to your boot because the clip swivels. Beware if it's cold and u don't want to take off your glove
Excellent durability - do the trick
I've had these on my resort setup (G3 Targa, PocketRocket) for over 2 years and they've held up amazingly. Highly recommend over plastic clasps!
good but not good
very comfortable even with big gloves. but mine broke after a couple of months. but i'm still getting a new pair.
My Favorite Leash
I love these leashes. Unlike other reviews, I find them the easiest of all tele leashes to get on while still wearing gloves. They have not broken for me and seem very durable. Also, they have never come off prematurely on me. I have these on two of my three pairs of tele skis. Soon to be on all my tele skis. Another fine product from G3!
OK if you don't wear gloves when you ski.
These clasps spin out of your grip very easily when you're trying to open them with gloves on. I inevitably have to remove my gloves every time I want to buckle in. Not worth the hassle.
The clasp on these are almost guranteed to break on a regular basis.
had these on my karhu agents with BD 01 bindings and had a clasp explode during a fall, the hinge held the metal itself broke. It was the only fall I had a ski pop off durning and the leash didn't last.
How do you install these on Targa G3 Telly...
How do you install these on Targa G3 Telly bindings?
Each Targa toe piece has a hole built in to attach a leash. Simply thread the looped end through this hole and girth hitch it to itself.
What is the length of the cables?

6 1/2 in. could be 2' longer to make em fit all cases
