The Atomic Tracker 13 Alpine Touring Binding delivers unrivaled downhill performance so you feel secure and comfortable when you hit up the backcountry. With one push of your ski pole and the simple shift of your body weight, you're able to easily switch from hike mode to ski mode. This unique touring binding is available in two sizes: small and large.
With DIN settings of 5-13, the Tracker 13 gives freeriders resort and touring performance and security for those who won't be hucking huge cliffs. Thanks to its 80mm-wide footprint and multiple brake size options the Tracker 13 is able to accommodate wider skis. And because of its low-profile chassis, this sweet touring setup provides a low stand height for increased terrain feedback and enhanced power transmission.
Don't be worried about blowing through a toe piece or having to jerry-rig your binding—Atomic engineers made the Tracker 13 with metal, aluminum, and plastic components that supply a solid, durable binding that can withstand constant touring. Plus the Tracker 13 has aluminum bars for strengthened rigidity which improves your edge-to-edge power transmission, while its oversized platform ensures maximum lateral power transmission.
What really sets this touring binding apart from the norm is its ability to switch from hike to ski mode with a push from your ski pole. Equipped with Hike-and-Ride Switch technology, you're able to flip the climbing bar from hike to ski mode with your ski pole, step down with your heel until the binding locks securely into place, and voilà, you're ready for the turns you just earned. This sweet mechanism enables a quick, easy, and convenient switch between skiing and hiking mode without having to remove your skis. Oh, and to ensure improved comfort in hike mode, the Tracker comes with two climbing aid positions.
Not to overwhelm you with more stellar features, but the Tracker 13 comes with a flat-nosed 90-degree pivot for optimal climbing and kick-turn capability and a simplified base plate to reduce snowpack during hike mode. And to top it off, the Tracker has an adjustable sole height for a secure fit.

Skied these bindings for the last couple of years. Super easy to change from walk to ski mode and back. You don't even have to take your skis off actually. Quick and easy. However, keep in mind that this binding plays a role in how your ski will ski. I feel like it makes the ski a bit stiffer under foot. It also raises your boot off the ski so it effects the way you ski the ski as well. Food for thought. Play with mounting points or ask around. It's a great binding if you want to feel secure on the downhill portion. I've never had issues with coming out of them. Not the lightest weight option, but can be utilized as your one pair of skis that you ski in the backcountry and on the hill?so that's great!
