Dynafit Radical ST backcountry skiing binding.

Dynafit Radical ST backcountry skiing binding, this model first introduced for 2011-2012 season. Main changes over previous are an entirely redesigned heel lift system, as well as metal 'power towers' in the toe that may help with binding entry and possibly help prevent inadvertent release in downhill mode. Sister model to this binding is the TLT Radical FT, only difference being a connector plate between toe and heel, and the ability to set higher release values (12 instead of 10)

What is the Dynafit binding?
Dynafit is a backcountry skiing binding that allows you to ski downhill with your boot attached to your ski the same way a regular alpine ski binding functions, yet transforms into a touring/climbing binding for skiing uphill or across level ground with your heels free to move up and down. The binding is available in numerous models. The TLT Speed (Tour Lite Tech) has been available for several decades. We have used the TLT extensively and highly recommend it as well as the Dynafit Comfort, ST and FT model offerings, as well as the TLT Radical FT and TLT Radical ST. Note that this TYPE of backcountry skiing binding is commonly called a “tech” binding. “Dynafit” is a brand.
