From blasting down wind-buffed snow in the resort to getting low in deep backcountry pow, the 22 Designs Outlaw X Binding is a true do-it-all freeheel clamp. Building off the success of its first NTN offering, 22 Designs took the same sweet flex, instant engagement, and massive spring travel of the first iteration of the Outlaw and refined it a bit by introducing a new claw that allows for easy entry into the binding and an equally simple exit via the pole-activated mechanism. So if you're making the transition from duckbill boots to an NTN setup, you won't have to stoop down to fiddle with heel bails when you're gunning for first chair or getting ready for the descent on a steep, precarious ridge in the backcountry. The Outlaw X borrows the same free-pivot performance made famous by the Axl and has a similar six-hole mounting pattern for the secure ski-to-binding retention aggressive freeheelers demand when arcing GS-style turns in the resort or backcountry. The spring-loaded climbing bail engages with a quick flick of the pole to reduce leg strain when touring in steep terrain, and the main die spring can be adjusted between five different settings to get the ideal amount of tension you need to suit your turning style. And while the main spring is adjustable, 22 Designs is also offering an additional stiffy spring set (sold separate) for skiers that prefer a stiff, aggressive feel from their bindings.
Snap into the Twenty-Two Designs Axl Bindings and carve with confidence at the resort and in the backcountry. The Axl gives you the legendary stiffness and adjustability of the Hammerhead and adds a free-pivot backcountry touring mode that allows you to tour longer and with less fatigue.
The TARGA Ascent combines the award winning, lightweight TARGA T/9 with a pole-activated free pivot system, easily switching the binding from tour to ski mode. The TARGA Ascent combines the award winning, lightweight TARGA T/9 with a pole-activated free pivot system, easily switching the binding from tour to ski mode. In tour mode, the Ascent toe plate pivots unrestricted on a stainless steel axle, eliminating the burden of boot flex resistance. Biomechanically engineered for a natural feel and efficient stride, the Ascent's pivot point is located 7mm forward of the 'pin-line', quickly transforming telemarkers to trailbreakers. A flick of the switch easily converts the Ascent into an aggressive high performance binding. A stainless steel sliding retainer moves into place above a forged stainless steel retention bar, securing the Ascent into ski mode. The 3° wedge and 40mm rise further enhances the skiing performance over and above its T/9 predecessor, eliminating rocker launch and engaging the powerful G3 compression spring cartridges for outstanding downhill control. For further touring convenience, the TARGA Ascent also includes a new, pole activated, elastomer-spring climbing heel, providing 70mm of rise and a very clean design.
The Voile Switchback X2 Telemark Ski Binding turns a good idea into a great one. Designed with the same free-pivoting, ice-free concept as Voile's original Switchback Binding, the Switchback X2 features a longer toe plate for greater contact with your boot and stiffer cartridge springs for extra control when driving those big powder skis. With all that tech, you'd expect to pay a weight penalty, but Voile Managed to keep it around 3.2 pounds per pair, which makes it the lightest AT tele binder around.
Drawing on the successful designs of both the Axl and Hammerhead bindings, the 22 designs Vice Telemark Binding is built to stand up to resort-crushing abuse.

This burly, no-nonsense binding has been freed of unnecessary flare for hard-charging riders looking to put in some mileage at the resort.

The Black Diamond O2 Telemark Binding is one of the strongest and highest performance telemark binding built today. A unique yoke and solid wire heel piece add lateral stability and torsional support for an added edge in rough conditions. Under-foot cable routing keeps the ball of your foot on the ski and provides progressively stiffer flex and power when it's time to put the hammer down while the variable height design of the metal reinforced toe riser matches the angle of the boot sole to reduce tip dive. Adjust your flex with compression-spring cartridges, available in three stiffness ratings - FreeFlex, MidStiff and Ridiculously Stiff.
The Voile 3-Pin Cable Telemark Binding provides the best of both worlds when it comes to backcountry and resort skiing versatility.
