Howell 5-15 Anti-ACL-Rupture ski-bindings provide a decisive command over anti-pre-release and edge control.
Same binding as Howell 880 Pro.
Details: Super-tough engineering-grade-resins (non-hydroscopic Nylon-12 with 50% long glass fibers) & aluminum housings. Pure Teflon boot contact points. Pincer-toes provide solid lateral control even on choppy ice. Multi-directional toe-release (not pure-vertical toe release). Solid stainless steel inner workings enhance reliable function. Unique, Functional Decoupling System (sm) blocks pre-release in each mode of release even at chart settings. Wide boot contact maximizes edge-control. Utility patented, low, 17mm stand-height reduces MCL, ACL and meniscus stress. 0°-ramp angle provides natural athletic stance. Additional 3rd-mode of lateral heel release — uniquely without pre-release — enhances ACL and MCL friendly skiing. Floating Mounting System maximizes binding-retention to the ski.

** Howell SkiBindings 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.
