(1)   Multi-directional toe release includes (a) pure vertical toe release to address BIAD (Boot Induced Anterior Drawer) ACL-friendly skiing (prevalence among general skiing population = ~8% of all skiing-ACL injuries);  and includes (b) diagonal toe release to address backward-twisting ACL & MCL-friendly skiing (~10% of all knee injuries).  Pure vertical and multi-directional toe function is available in Howell 880 Pro and Howell 800 Venus models — NOT available in Howell 888 WC Racing model.

(2)  Additionally addresses valgus-dominant events that comprise ~80% of all ACL injuries — available in Howell 800, 880, and 888.

"Addresses" means 'mitigates', never 'eliminates'.
