Reliably releasable at all settings, a maximum DIN setting of 12 keeps big skiers clicked in. An adjustable-height toe fits nearly all AT or Alpine DIN boots on the market.

It's no wonder that the Fritschi Diamir Freeride Plus Binding has won awards from Powder, Outside, and Skiing Magazine as their choice for going out-of-bounds. Gladiators of the backcountry amphitheater depend on its legendary reputation when they go huge and land hard. Beefed up from Fritschi's original Freeride touring design, the Freeride Plus has a higher 12 DIN setting, so your planks will stay glued in pucker country where missing a turn can mean your season or worse. Wider mount points and stiffer lateral hinges give you more leverage over the fatty planks that are storming the ropes these days, and the sliding heel lock mechanism eliminates accidental switching into tour mode under flex. Generous 95mm brakes come standard, but you can grab the available Wide Brakes if you're packing magnum girth. The Freeride Plus is compatible with regular alpine as well as dedicated AT boots.
