Black Diamond O1 Telemark Ski Binding


Pros: If you want a binding to perform like no other.. I've been teleskiing since 10 years old 40 yrs ago this is it. Every binding would break but these...

Cons: Had stress cracks over 250 + days but looks like the metal is different from the bindings 3 years ago. I worked in shops last 25 years. BIND'S ROCK!

Ok lotta BS about these but I never write any reviews but this is the most DEPENDABLE safe binding period. My level of skiing increased 20% after using these bindings over the years and been an avid tele skiier since 1980.... really!




Pros: Versatile

This is a great binding that has been a real benefit to a high energy ski style.  It would be great if BD would provide "piece meal" components in their repair kits instead of repair kits with one of each piece.  I have broken 3 cables and have had to purchase 3 repair kits with all the superfluous items included.   G3 does it and I have moved to buying their products for the reasons that it is cheaper and has been easier to salvage cartridges after busting cables.
  Still a great binding but comes with the added expense of purchasing unnecessary items in the repair kit,
Black Diamond O1 Telemark Ski Binding

Black Diamond brings a new level of touring ease to high-performance tele skiing with the 01 Telemark Ski Bindings. They won awards from Powder Magazine, Skiing Magazine, Outside Magazine, and Couloir Magazine. A push with your ski pole tip switches these telemark bindings to tour mode. The free-pivot point allows a natural stride that matches the best alpine touring bindings. Lock these Black Diamond bindings back down, and their under-foot compression springs provide the power and control to rip a steep couloir or hammer down in an open bowl. No longer do you have to compromise downhill performance for touring ease. Black Diamond gives you both with the 01 Telemark Bindings.
