Here's what other sites are saying:

Thanks to the stainless steel toe plate and heel tube, the G3 Targa Ascent S/S Telemark Ski Binding takes on your hardcore backcountry challenges and handles your fat skis with ease. This binding's pivoting toe plate, pole-activated climbing heel, and secure downhill mode increase your backcountry performance, which means you can leave your AT buddies in the dust. This G3 binding's front switch allows the toe plate to pivot as you hike uphill so you don't have to fight against the resistance of a fixed plate. The Targa Ascent S/S's pole-activated climbing heel pops up easily and gives you a more secure hold on steep climbs. Once you're at the top, flip the Ascent S/S's front switch--a sturdy retention bar secures the binding in place for your downhill attack.
