G3 in Vancouver, BC says they’ll begin selling their new ONYX alpine touring binding later this month through select retail locations. This limited run of ONYX bindings will be sold at MSRP price as part of a beta program in which consumers will be requested to participate in a streamlined feedback process. As incentive, participants will receive G3 swag once the beta feedback process is complete. G3’s ONYX design and development team will track and respond accordingly to all shared feedback.
In addition, G3 will remain committed to ensuring that ONYX bindings enrolled in the Beta Program receive any adopted upgrades free of charge until December of 2009 (after this time period, G3’s standard product warranty will apply).
Consumers will be requested to enroll in the ONYX beta program via www.g3onyx.com, where they will be able to electronically complete and submit bimonthly feedback forms.
To discover where Onyx bindings will be available, please contact G3 customer service at 604-924-9048. More about ONYX.
More details from G3:
Beta program Onyx bindings have a unique serial number that can be used to access G3’s beta program feedback site. As a beta program participant, we will request that you submit feedback reports on your ONYX binding’s performance every two weeks. Each participant of the beta program who successfully submits no less than 4 feedback reports before July 1, 2009 will be rewarded with a free pair of Alpinist Climbing Skins. A very easy to use feedback form can be found on www.g3onyx.com, under the beta program bar. The submission of a feedback form will act as your formal registration into the program as well as your portal for sharing performance feedback. Once you have signed in by submitting your first feedback form, you will receive a letter acknowledging your successful joining of the program. At this point we will begin tracking your feedback. After submitting the required feedback in a timely manner you will be contacted to arrange for Alpinist Skins to be sent to you.
