I do not actually own theTri-step but it's predecessor (the tourlite) in two different steps of evolution. Good: 1) VERY low weight, much lighter than all competitors. 2) Robust (I haven't had a damage yet in over 10 years of use). 3) Safe 4) Won't open if you switch into walk mode for downhill skiing (good for passages when it is mandatory to keep your skis on your feet. Downsides 1) Limited choice of boots (boot must be equiped for the binding) 2) Getting into the binding not very comfortable (needs some practice, sometimes problematic for some people).

In summary, if you are looking for a safe, robust and lightweight binding, go for the Dynafit. If you want more comfot getting into and out of the binding, get the Silvretta or Fritschi.
