User Review: G3 Onyx
Source: bought via a "pro deal"
Price Paid: $300
Great binding for BC laps and skiing. More intuitive than Dynafits. Love Dynafits too, but these are tad different.
- Feel more secure "pushing" the ski
- Switching from skin to ski mode
- A tad heavier, but I view it as a better workout
I have the Dynafits and the G3 Onyx. Let me say both setups are great. I love my Dynafits for BC days and touring; however if I'm taking some runs and want to push the ski, I would prefer the G3. G3 is a tad heavier but I love the fact you can switch from skin mode to ski mode without releasing toe piece and vice versa.
While capable of switching to skin to ski mode via ninja pole tricks in Dynafits, switching back to skin mode you have to release the whole boot. Not the case in G3. Found that very useful on a recent hut trip in Colorado.
