Designed for smaller and lighter skiers who don't require a release value higher than 10 (that's a lot of us), the G3 Ion 10 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings incorporate all the same outstanding features and performance of the Ion 12. The Ion series features a flatter ramp angle than some of the popular competition, with a ski pole accessible snow clearing slot under the toe jaws and easily flippable lifters at the heel.
Toe: Wide Toe Jaw Dynamics & Tech Pin Positioning – Optimizes energy transfer and shock absorption. Enhances torsional rigidity of binding, and more directly transfers power to edges of ski.
Robust, Reliable Simplicity – Simple and functional design that users of other tech bindings will be instantly familiar with.
Snow Clearing Channel at Toe – Added stand height allows snow clearing with ski pole tip.
Forward Pressure Heel – Spring loaded heel track allows binding to move rearward as the ski flexes.
Easy Release Adjustment – Both lateral and vertical release values can be adjusted with a Pozidrive #3 screwdriver.
Heel AFD – Consistent release for all boots, independent of sole type
Tour Mode: Bi-Directional Touring Rotation – Heel may be rotated either clockwise or counterclockwise for skinning.
Quick Flick 3 Position Heel Lifts – Flat, medium and high positions can be adjusted on the fly with a ski pole.
Boot Compatibility: Tech Boots Only – Requires a boot with tech heel and toe fittings.
Length Adjustability – 22 mm
Not compatible with boots that employ a metatarsal flex zone, such as the Scarpa F1, F3, Terminator X and TX Pro
G3 Ion Crampons Available Separately – A clip to retain crampons attaches to the toepiece base with 2 screws. The G3 Ion crampon features an ingenious cable release system that operates without having to slide the crampon laterally in the crampon slot. Crampons available in 85, 95, 105, 115, and 130 mm widths.
Ion Bindings have a nearly flat ramp angle (boot dependent)
One Size Fits All
Wide Freeride Mount – Transfers power to edges and enhances torsional rigidity of binding. 33% wider than traditional tech bindings.
