Black Diamond Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro Binding -108mm -
Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro AT Bindings with a large brake bring efficiency and freeride performance to the backcountry.
With a large brake that fits skis with a waist up to 108 mm, the Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro combines the wide-bodied power transmission of an alpine binding with Fritschi's new Gliding Technology for a smooth, natural stride.
On the skin track, Gliding Technology eases your ascent by eliminating that hinge-like, tiptoe feeling.
The Freeride Pro's wide footprint and toepiece hinge provide a larger footprint than previous Fritschi bindings, giving you improved power to drive powerful, wide-bodied skis.
Power Transmission Control (PTC) technology.
Max DIN 12, and DIN certified for both AT and alpine boot soles.
Four-level heel elevator.
Free-gliding heel bar with integrated lock prevents accidental release into tour mode.
Included brake fits up to 108 mm ski width.
Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro AT bindings step up your backcountry setup - get ready for some serious power on the way down and efficient skinning on the way up.

Manufactured:

  • Swivel anti-friction plate allows for consistent and friction-free sliding of the toe of the boot in the binding (important for touring and freeride boots with rubber soles)

Features:

  • Binding accommodates skis with waist measurement of 80mm+ and DIN ISO compatible touring and alpine ski boots
  • Both toe and heel feature a mechanism with a high restoring force so the toe and heel of the boot are returned to alignment quickly in the event of lateral or vertical movement shy of the maximum release point
  • Change from walk to ski mode without leaving your bindings and with a simple flip of a switch with the end of your ski pole
  • Once mounted, binding has a position height of 39mm from the top edge of the ski
  • Heel piece allows for 13mm of vertical movement before releasing the boot from the binding, which also drastically reduces the opportunity for premature ejection
  • The Gliding Technology helps skis flex naturally and tour easier
  • Free-gliding heel bar with integrated lock prevents accidental release into tour mode
  • PTC (power transmission control) offers superior power transmission to the ski by using wide and torsion-resistant front and rear binding plates, a lateral stabilizer beneath the heel, and a stabilizing bridge shape between the heel and toe
  • Sliding binding-bar linkage allows the ski to flex naturally underneath the boot and between the mounting points of the binding
  • Heel elevator is easy to flip up with your ski pole and offers four angles of inclination from three degrees to thirteen degrees
  • Max DIN 12, and DIN certified for both AT and alpine boot soles

Inbounds or out, the Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro AT bindings provide a larger platform and improved power to drive wide-bodied skis. The Power Transmission Control (PTC) technology has a wide footprint and toepiece hinge that that transmit energy to ski edges more effectively. Fritschi's new Gliding Technology eases your climb by eliminating that hinge-like, tiptoe feeling. The switch from walk to ski mode is done with the flick of a ski pole tip and the binding release in touring mode. A good thing in avalanche terrain!

Sure, the Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro 108mm Binding has a touring mode, but that shouldn't lead you to assume that it sacrifices anything in the way of downhill performance. This is a wide, burly touring binding for powerful skiers who seek technical lines far away from the resort. Robust materials mean ultimate durability, a clever linkage design transmits all your power directly to the ski, and a dialed release system protects you against disastrous early-release scenarios. Glide quickly on the skin track and then push this top-shelf touring binding until your speed leaves you screaming like a child.

Black Diamond Fritschi Diamir Freeride Pro Binding -108mm Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I have these mounted on Black Diamond Zealots and they work well. I've been touring with them a few times and they're quite a bit heavier than a dedicated touring binding, but fill a niche for someone who wants one setup for inbounds and backcountry skiing.

Negative Reviews:

I had the previous model of this binding, no issues with durability but not a great touring binding. For one it is heavy but worse yet you are picking up the weight of the majority of the binding when you are you picking up your heel to glide. At first the weight isn't bothersome but after awhile your buddy's dynafits on the way to the summit of Rainier look better, and better.... Also they accumulate alot of snow buildup when touring through powder. They definitely look like a good conventional downhill binding, but I have found my Dynafit's ski down hill better and I'm a fairly aggressive, powerful skier (190lbs).

Neutral Reviews:

There are two ways to review these: Review them, review them vs. Dynafit.
Review: These are fully functional, they work great, I never had a problem with them.
Review vs. Dynafit: When you can purchase the Dynafit Speed Radical for the same price, you'd be crazy to go with Fritschi. Almost every touring boot made now is Dynafit compatible. Fritschis are clunky, loud (clack-clack-clack-clack), heavier, harder to maneuver on tricky ascents, and don't offer the top-of-the-line stability that Dynafit offers.
What it comes down to: I don't think these bindings, though totally functional, are worth anywhere near their price point.
