I am looking for an AT binding to match with my Garmont Megaride boots. They are tech boots with the pin holes for tech bindings, but I use them with Fritschi Freerides. They have rubber soles and a slight uptilt at the toe. I believe that the AT products offered by Marker, Solomon, etc are not compatible with these boots.
I recently bought new skis (Cham 97 HM) and am trying to define what range of choices I have. I like the Fritschis. A tech binding would be a new learning experience for me. I am 80% downhill, but I do like day-long climbing excursions. Price always matters, but less so considering that I expect to have them for years of dependable use, which I value more.
I am not a high speed jumper when I downhill. I prefer to keep my feet on the ground. I prefer to ski steep technical glades at Sugarbush and MRG.
Is it time to try tech or stay with my familiar Fritschis, assuming the other models do not work with my boots.
Thanks for looking and sharing any experience, fact or opinion with me.
