New Binding is over engineered
January 31, 2011
Do not buy this snowshoe with the new binding system, I tried it last week and again this last weekend, the D ring hook on the middle strap comes out, last week x 3, this week x 2.. the front toe binding... do not try to adjust it on the hill, get it adjusted in the warmth of your home. it is not Glove Friendly in any way. The adjustable toe for duck or pigeon feet, the pull tab broke off, it would not stay locked in place. I had to use pliers to pull the pin to set the angle.. good thing it was 30 degrees and no wind.. This whole binding system is way over engineered. it would be dangerous to have in the back country with low temperatures. They should pull it, recall every one of them.. go back to the 3 strap x 1 strap "bombproof" binding.. but i guess they have to pay the R & D guys something for doing something, but they missed on this one... run away from this binding, run away fast JCons: Bad design, Low performance, dangerous
