incredible binding! super light! but dynafit didn't skimp where it counts and all the areas that get the regular abuse are either forged aluminum or steel for extra durability. a couple things to note are that there are two DIN adjustments in the heal piece, the three screws in the back are where it can get confusing, the lowest one is the boot size adjustment, and the big one in the middle and the small one on top are the DIN settings. I will update this in the future with some pics and more info on durability...
I have this binding on all of my touring skis, fat and skinny. The Radical toe piece has a wider mount pattern so it works well with fat skis and the heel piece is a stripped down version of the ST. The heel is still adjustable to accomodate different boot sole lengths. It's got the best features of the FT and ST but in a stripped down lighter package. You cant put a brake on it that's why it comes with leashes.
Climb great, ski great. Was worried at first that I would miss having brakes, but I definitely don't. I'd highly recommend the B&D ski leashes with these.
Depending on your boot's fitting, it may be very difficult to lock the bindings into tour mode until the parts break in (although maybe this has been fixed in later versions). If your boot pops out, you probably aren't locked in, crank on that lever!
But don't be fooled. Lowest ramp angle, short of a race binding and the Radical toe is no short cut. Easy fit for several pairs of boots with the adjustment in the heel. Good for the first time BC skier or on your favorite pair of sticks. This is a great binding.
The new toe piece has been awesome, so simple to enter! Great light weight touring binding. I'm very glad i purchased it
