The G3 Ion 12 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings combine low weight, reliable performance, and a relatively flat ramp angle that closely matches the stance of most alpine binding setups. The result is low trauma conversion between alpine and AT gear, and less apprehension about moving to lighter gear in challenging snow and terrain. Add an easy to access slot under the toe arms that can be cleared using your ski pole, heel lifters that function equally well with the heel turned clockwise or counter clockwise, and easy Pozidrive #3 adjustment of all release value and boot sole length variables and you've got the recipe for backcountry bliss.
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.
Snow Clearing Channel at Toe – Added stand height allows snow clearing with ski pole tip.
Robust, Reliable Simplicity – Simple and functional design that users of other tech bindings will be instantly familiar with.
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
One Size Fits All
Ion Bindings have a nearly flat ramp angle (boot dependent)
Wide Freeride Mount – Transfers power to edges and enhances torsional rigidity of binding. 33% wider than traditional tech bindings.
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.
Ski Compatibility: We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
