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.
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.
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. The solid stainless steel toe-piece mounts directly to the ski while durable chrome die springs provide over two inches of powerful travel. This burly, no-nonsense binding has been freed of unnecessary flare for hard-charging riders looking to put in some mileage at the resort.
