ACL-FRIENDLY. WITHOUT PRE-RELEASE. PROVEN.
Big News! A major European binding company just now validated Howell SkiBindings — “lateral-heel release might reduce ACL injury”. They will have lateral-heel-release in their future bindings!
Howell SkiBindings have ACL-friendly lateral-heel release.
ACL-friendly lateral-heel-release bindings are now a category of alpine ski-bindings. This is not rotational release — it’s lateral-heel release.
But only Howell SkiBindings have lateral-heel-release that actively blocks pre-release.
How? A special knuckle-joint in Howell SkiBindings actively re-centers the heel, laterally, during aggressive but innocuous skiing. No other binding with lateral-heel release actively blocks pre-release.
Everyone wants ACL-friendly skiing. No one wants pre-release.
Only Howell SkiBindings provide powerful edge-control, too.
How? Super-wide contact points plus a shortened forward-fulcrum. ‘Massive edge-control without effecting necessary-release or anti-pre-release.
Unlike all other bindings.
During the last 20 years, extraordinary scientific research has been performed by Rick Howell (see footnote 1) of Howell SkiBindings to biomechanically-prove and technically refine the ACL-friendly revolution (2).
