Continuing my quest to get some level of improvement in the Wild Snow ski touring binding museum before winter, got the online page for the Emery A-LX done. This might have been the best Emery binding made before they quit doing ski touring bindings. The re-branded Look turntable heel is bomber, toe height adjustment obvious and clean, heel lifter elegant (if not fragile). Connector plate is composite with a bit of flex that might have helped “naturalize” your stride.
This shorter blog post is for comments. Full Emery A-LX museum display here.
Thanks Peter Stout for the donation of this backcountry skiing gear.
