The Howell 888 Max is an extreme prototype — in the same conceptual-way as the Porsche 917 prototype sports racing car.
The 888 Max is both lite and super-strong through the use of titanium ti6Al4v housings. This extreme function comes at a price: the individually-crafted Howell 888 Max is by far the world’s most expensive ski-binding.
Unique Functional Decoupling System (sm) provides maximum anti-pre-release. Super wide boot contact delivers maximum edge-control. No vertical toe release. No multi-directional toe-release. Pincer toes provide maximum directional control in all snow and terrain conditions.
Patented, super-low 17mm stand-height allows the addition of just about any lifter while still complying with FIS regulations — and reduces cumulative knee strain. 1° reverse ramp-angle for firm tip pressure. Variable ramp-angle shims are included. Sculpted side-walls for anti boot-out tipping. Solid stainless steel internal-components maximize durability. Floating Mounting System plus additional mounting screws provide maximum long-term anti pull-out strength. Additional 3rd-mode of lateral heel release — without pre-release — provides ACL-friendly skiing*.
Grip-Sole compatible (optional) with extra AFD’s (included).
Anticipated DIN Certification in Germany.
Individually tested and calibrated.
Mounting jig; 4.1mm-Ø drill bit; 4.0mm-Ø screw-tap; and Optional Cant Kit (1°, 2°) included with purchase.

*** 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.
