Howell 800 Venus is the world's 1st eco-friendly ski binding — made of castor beans — creating a supertough engineering-grade resin that forms the Venus housings. Comes with Q-angle canting to address female anatomy — reducing knee strain.
Super Convenient, Easy Step-In — even in lite powder.
Details: Precision-ground springs provide super smooth release — only when needed. Special decoupling-features block unwanted pre-release even at low release settings. Wide boot contact-points — toe-heel / top-bottom — maximize edge-control, even on ice. Patented, low, 17mm standing-platform reduces cumulative knee strain. 0°-ramp angle for a natural athletic stance. Additional 3rd mode of lateral heel release — without pre-release — provides ACL-friendly skiing in all snow conditions. Additional multi-directional toe release — also without pre-release — provides super-friendly skiing.
Anticipated Certification in Germany to international ski binding standards ISO 9462, 9465 & 11087 — plus 'standard industry practice' for durability & anti-pre-release.
Individually tested and calibrated.
Lifetime limited warranty.
Two ski-brake widths included with purchase: 70-80mm; 80-90mm **
On-line service available.
FLAT-OUT SKIING CONFIDENCE.

** Howell SkiBindings company is against (a) ski waist widths greater than 87mm AND (b) all 'pin-binding's' (except new Trab TR2) — due to (a.i) their association with a new type of skiing-injury: severe, high-energy tibia-plateau fractures, severe tibial-tuberosity fractures, cumulative miniscus-damage, and MCL-rupture; and (b.i) due to high-energy, spiral-tiba-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 many multiple-fragments, difficult surgical reconstruction, and 10 to 15-months of aggressive rehabilitation. Fat skis on firm snow and pin-bindings in any snow (except Trab TR2 pin bindings) — are a serious problem for the sustainability of our beautiful sport: the ISO standards on pin-bindings must be changed to reflect human-biomechanics.
