Ed FGreat Improvements

Voted 5/5

The touring mode of these bindings is great -- the best I've ever toured with. They put the pivot point for the front toe about 23mm behind the Freeride and Explore, making for a much more natural walking and climbing gait. It also has a small spring-loaded backstop when you fully extend so that the binding naturally retracts and helps you drive your back ski forward when skinning.

They also improved the heel lifter in that it's easier to raise and lower it because they made the hole for your pole a little smaller.

Also lighter than the Freeride.

One drawback is that the DIN only goes to 10, so this probably isn't the binding for going huge, but Duke has that market cornered, anyway.

Overall, I'm very happy with these, and I'll be mounting these bindings until someone makes a big improvement. Big step forward for Fritschi.
