Lite. Super-strong. Engineering-grade high-tech Nylon-12 housings. Aluminum boot-contact lugs with thick, pure Teflon contact-strips. Precision-ground, double-set springs provide precise release — only when needed. Solid stainless steel inner workings provide unmatched durability. Unique Functional Decoupling System (sm) blocks pre-release. Maximum-width boot-contact — side to side, top & bottom — provides maximum edge-control. Patented, low, 17mm stand-height reduces cumulative knee strain. 0°-ramp angle for natural athletic body stance. Non-pre-releasing multi-directional toe release for added protection. Pincer toe provides decisive directional control in all snow conditions. Floating mounting system prevents pull-outs. Additional 3rd-mode of lateral heel release — without pre-release — provides ACL-friendly skiing.

*** 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.
