    Multiple ACL-friendly features

    No nonsense hands-off step-in even in deep powder with small boots.

    Same binding as Howell 800 Venus.


    If while skiing you sing and dance — it’s good to know your bindings reach beyond standard practice to include additional ACL-friendliness without pre-release.  No other binding has it.


Details:   Double-set, precision-ground springs assure precise release.  Patented, low, 17mm stand-height reduces cumulative stress on the meniscus, MCL and ACL.  0°-ramp angle provides natural athletic stance.  Additional 3rd mode of lateral heel release — uniquely without pre-release — provides ACL-friendly skiing.  Additional vertical toe release and multi-directional toe release — without pre-release — further enhances ACL-friendly skiing.  No other binding has these combined features.  


    Now you can sing, dance and ski — ACL-friendly.

** Howell SkiBindings company is against (a) ski waist widths greater than 100mm  AND  (b) all 'pin-binding's' (except Trab TR2) — due to their association with a new type of skiing-injury:  severe, high-energy tibia-plateau and tibial-tuberosity fractures.  Both new types of skiing injuries are the fastest-growing categories of injuries in skiing — matching the growth of fat-skis and pin-bindings.  The high-energy nature of the new types of skiing fractures involve multiple-fragments, difficult surgical reconstruction, and 10 to 15-months of aggressive rehabilitation.  Fat skis on firm snow are a serious problem for the sustainability of our beautiful sport.   References:  (1) Dominik Heim, MD;  SITEMSH-Japan, 2016.  (2) Zorko; Nemec; Matjacic; Olensek;  Alpine Skiing Simulations Prove Ski Waist-Width Influences Knee Joint Kinematics;  ISSS-Innsbruck, Austria, 2017.   (3) Stenroos; Pakarinen; Jalkanen; Mälkiä; Handolin;  Tibial Fractures in Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding in Finland: A Retrospective Study on Fracture Types and Injury Mechanisms in 363 patients;  Scand J Surg Off Organ Finn Surg Soc Scand Surg Soc., Sept 2015,  doi:10.1177/1457496915607410.  (4) Improved Short Term Outcomes in Tibial Plateau Fractures of Snow Sports Injuries Treated with Immediate Open Reduction Internal Fixation;  Janes, MD; Leonard, MSPH; Phillips, PA-C; Salottolo, MPH; Abbott, MD, Bar-Or, MD;  ISSS-Innsbruck, Austria, 2017.
