Designed to be the highest performing Alpine touring binding for both the up and the down. The Freetour binding features an integrated quick release mechanism which allows the system to utilize light weight tech touring toe pieces for climbing and the most trusted alpine binding for skiing. Simply put this binding flat out works better and is safer than any other alpine touring option available.
Stand height of 20mm.
Both an alpine ISO 5355 standard AFD version and a WTR AFD version.
Weight: 2000g touring weight per pair
Climbing bails for flat, 8 and 12.5 degrees.
An auto-locking brake retainer.
MOST ELASTIC TRAVEL AVAILABLE
The Freetour boasts the most lateral travel before release and the fastest re-centering of any binding, delivering superior shock absorbtion and reducing unwanted pre-release. The pivoting heel piece, 28mm vertical heel travel, 45mm lateral toe travel and wide Teflon toe glider all provide unmatched safety and ski feel. The Freetour also features multidirectional release making it the safest and most reliable binding on the market.
UNMATCHED POWER TRANSMISSION
The Freetour is as burly (or forgiving) as bindings come. The all-metal reinforced Pivot toepiece combined with the classic "turntable" heel delivers maximum power transmission and consistent release. Seven points-of-contact with the boot results in increased lateral energy transmission, drives more power to the edge of the ski and provides superior control, response, and snow feel. A short mounting zone reduces swing weight, improves response, and deepens your ski's flex.
LOW STAND HEIGHT
The Freetour features a low stand height of 20mm above the ski. The low stand height, short mounting zone, and elastic travel give the Pivot the best ski feel available.
LOW OVERALL WEIGHT / TECH EFFICIENCY
The use of our super light tech toe reduces touring weight to a minimum, at just 2000 grams. Using a pintech toe piece allows for the most efficient skinning stride and has zero lifted weight on the heel. The tech toe makes kickturns, gliding and sidehilling easier, which will constantly help reduce effort during the approach.
The climbing aids can be easily activated with a ski pole between flat, 6 degree, and 12 degree climbing modes.
AUTOLOCK SKI BRAKES
Flip a switch step down and your brakes are held up for touring mode. Flip the switch back and the brakes release for ski mode.
This simple and robust locking mechanism allows for fast transitioning between alpine and touring mode. Both the tech toe and alpine toe slide on and autolock into position. The tech toe has a secondary lock mechanism when stepped into with a boot. This secondary lock creates zero play and reduces stress on the primary lock while touring, increasing hardware longevity. The tech and alpine toes are released with a low-profile slider switch.
SKI CRAMPON CLIP
An integrated clip on the tech toe lets you easily slide on ski crampons.
QUICK SWAP ANTI FRICTION DEVICES (AFD)
We offer both an alpine ISO 5355 standard AFD and a WTR AFD that are easily interchanged without tools using a quick clip mechanism.
