good point, philpug, salomons haven't evolved a whole lot either.
Ullr, you mentioned it was listed as a freeride binding. You mean a free binding? free (by itself) just means it's not part of a system-binding that mounts to a track- specific to a ski. although, freeride gear is getting quite the race-stock make-over these recent years- both skis and bindings. Athletes can't compete on teeny 12 din bindings. Personally, I think it looks like a great binding for mounting to a big pow ski and would strongly consider it as well as the Looks, rossis and salomons.
