With the G3 Targa Ascent Telemark Binding, you'll be powering through backcountry hikes and steep powder descents. When in touring mode, the Ascent Binding's toe plate pivots on a stainless steel axle to promote a natural and efficient stride, and a pole-activated climbing heel pops up easily, so you're not left behind as you wrestle with climbing wires. Once you're ready for the descent, simply flick the front switch to convert the lightweight Targa Ascent Telemark Binding from tour to ski mode. As you snorkel through the pow, a sturdy retention bar secures this G3 binding in place, and the compression spring cartridges give you power and control.
