Product Description

A free-pivoting, alpine touring-style telemark binding, the new Voile Switchback allows backcountry telemark skiers to ascend with zero heel resistance thus conserving valuable energy and allowing for easier trail breaking. The Switchback is easily switched from uphill touring to downhill telemark skiing with use of your ski pole. Also, it comes standard equipped with dual height climbing heel elevators for varying ascents.

Challenging the competition, Voile is boasting the new Switchback as stronger, lighter, and with the most competitive retail price compared to the current crop of new telemark touring bindings.
