Product DescriptionFrom Black Diamond:
"Trimmed of any excess weight, the Fritschi Diamir Explore blends excellent downhill performance with maximum stability and first-class comfort for climbing and touring. Utilizing a stiffened rear attachment point for exceptional power transmission, the lightweight design features a DIN range from 3 to 10 to make this releasable step-in touring binding easy to maneuver off piste. The Teflon® anti-friction plate releases predictably at all DIN values. The adjustable-height toe allows the Diamir Explore to fit both AT and Alpine DIN-approved boots. You can quickly release the heelpiece and adjust the four-position climbing post with your ski pole."
"These bindings are a great (and less expensive) alternative to the Freeride if you're looking to save a little weight, or if you don't need a DIN that goes to 12. The Explore/Express are very versatile AT bindings that can handle challenging terrain and long tours."
"The Explore is a simple step-in with a satisfying click, plus nice power transmission and edge hold. The DIN-setting maxes out at 10, which means you won't be airing 30-footers, but as an easy-to-use all-arounder, it's hard to beat."
"The Explore feels almost as solid as the Freeride; the small difference is only noticeable on hard snow at high speeds. It's a predictable binding with similar characteristics to its bigger brother. The mode change and uphill feel are essentially the same. For lightweight skiers without the need for higher DINs, it's a solid choice."
