Reliable downhill power and control with the added bonus of resistance-free touring for uphill efficiency.
Push-button activation toggles between ski and tour modes with the simple touch of your ski pole tip.

Black Diamond O1 Ski Binding Reviews:


These bindings have made Backcountry so much better. I am in it for the climbs and these climb beautifully. I have used these for a few seasons now and am really impressed with the ease of in and out as well as the stiffness of the cartridges. I have not had one rip out with a 4 screw mount before, but knowing there are 6 screws I feel much more confident in carving really big turns.

I have been running BD bindings with the RID STIFF cartridges for a few years now, and they are the best I have used. PLEASE BD, fix the fact that the cartridges can get loose. A locking mechanism maybe?? They come loose way more than they should, and don't give me that " you have them set up wrong" crap :)

These bindings are great. Especially with the new six hole mounting plate. You don't have to worry about ripping out of the ski and breaking the binding. BD also got rid of the small amount of play that the older models had before the cartridges engaged. Definitely a solid binding and the tour mode is awesome!

I love these bindings because they have the ability to release tention to skin up a slope easier.
Con. Bindings losen up while skiing, so I have to tighten them before I ski and sometimes at lunch.
Besides that they are awesome.

Best binding on the market!!! Ridiculously stiff springs make them comparable to a downhill setup!!!
