I bought a pair of these from backcountry a couple months ago and was able to try them out for the first time for a couple of runs up and down the mountain this weekend. The brake lock seemed to fail repeatedly on one binding while skinning up. I haven't had time to look at the mechanism closely, but I was wondering if this is a known issue, or maybe I'm doing something wrong? I can reengage it, but it's a very frustrating thing to happen on a steep traverse.

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.
