Alex Gwrote a review of Salomon S/Lab Shift MNC Alpine Touring Binding on January 24, 2019
Iâve been using the Shift for about a month now, with a good balance of touring and resort days.
At first, I had to give the transition process a bit of a practice run in my living room to get used to the moving parts. Turns out itâs pretty easy and operating the change on snow hasnât been nearly as long as I first anticipted it to be. The pins open easily and my Lange boots just glide in there now. The front piece is overall super easy to work with gloves on, which is a must when transitioning in wind-swept areas.
The back piece works about just as well, but Iâm coming out if a hut trip with tons of snow and Iâve experienced some issues with ice building up under the heel piece, resulting in the breaks releasing mid-skintrack. Iâm curious if anyone has had this issue as well? Itâs the only reason I give the Shift a 4 star review.
They work really well with the Lange Freetour.
