Epidemiologically, females have 3-times the incidence of male ACL-ruptures in skiing (7-times in women’s basketball). This large difference is due, primarily, to a naturally-steeper slope on female tibial-plateau’s — causing a reversed inclined-plane effect that drives the femoral condyles aftward and the proximal end of the tibia forward (anterior-drawer movement) during large downward ground reaction forces. This scenario pre-loads the ACL. If an additional, large, abduction load enters the scenario — as during slip-catch events — the ACL can rupture —> unless the heel of the boot is free to move laterally (not rotationally, turntable bindings block lateral-heel movement). In this scenario, Howell SkiBindings’ lateral-heel release mechanism — together with specially-developed lateral-heel release-settings for women — provide ACL-friendly release.
Further ACL-friendliness for women is provided with pure-vertical / multi-directional / toe release.
All of these added-modes of release come with unique ‘functional-decoupling’ technology to block unwanted pre-release.
20-years have been invested in the development and tuning of this unique bio-technology. Only Howell SkiBindings provide true ACL-friendly skiing.
Howell SkiBindings provide easy, hands-off step-in / step-out — even in deep powder, even with small boots.
Details: Double-set, precision-ground springs assure precise release. Patented, low, 17mm stand-height reduces cumulative stress on meniscus, MCL and ACL. 0°-ramp angle provides natural athletic stance. 2° valgus canting (thick side, inside) comes standard with Howell Venus ski-bindings.

** 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.
