Toe unit is similar to previous generation.
Early Dynafit bindings were first known as “Low Tech” and virtually hand made by inventor Fritz Barthel and his helpers in the basement workshop of their multi-generation family home in Austria. This is the third production model. Biggest change from second generation was going to nearly fluorescent colors that conformed with early 1990s style.
Complete early Low Tech binding, third generation, circa 1995.

Note the DIN indicator that was added in the form of a small tab that stuck out from the housing. In the next (4th) generation this would change to markings on the spring adjustment barrel.

For more details, please see our other Dynafit (Low Tech) binding displays, perhaps beginning your browsing with the first generation Low Tech model.
Weight: 10.5 oz, 298 gr (with screws) (18 grams lighter than previous model)
This binding was donated to the WildSnow.com collection by inventor Fritz Barthel. Thanks Fritz!
