|Through years of testing and product development, backcountry skiing bindings have progressed from simple cable bindings to engineered machines that represent state-of-art materials science and mechanicals. This collection of backcountry skiing bindings covers the full historical range of modern bindings.|
Geze Touring Adapter circa 1968
This early alpine touring binding blew our minds when we received it in 2009 from museum supporter Bill Kuestner. Harkening back to the late 1960s, this touring adapter system for the Geze alpine binding includes climbing lift for the heel, as well as an ingenuous catch/slide mechanism that moves the heel unit for and aft.
Weight (one binding with screws): 42.7 ounces (with straps, which are essential to operation).
