This is more a preview than a review but...Head (a re badged Tyrolia) has introduce a viable contender in the competitive sidecounty binding market. While I have yet to get the new binding on snow, I did have a chance to play with it at the SIA show in January of the big three in this category the Tyrolia/Head is the lightest by over 100 grams.
More to come when I get these on snow next season.
Height/Weight: 5'10" 185lb
Ski Days/Season: 60+
Years Skiing: 35
Aggressiveness: Moderate (Finesse)
Current Quiver: 13 Blizzard Bonafide, 13 Blizzard Gunsmoke, plus various vintage skis
Head breaks through the back country scene with the Adrenaline 16 binding.
With its easy mechanism, light weight design (2600 grams/set), and adaptability from DIN to AT boots, this is a good binding whether you're seeking the side country or back country.
