The TARGA T/9, featuring the new rear TourThrow, is the ultra-light version of the G3 TARGA telemark binding. The innovative use of aerospace alloy aluminum toe plates, stainless steel toe bars and aluminum heel tubes saves weight without sacrificing durability. The TARGA T/9 is the ultimate in proven telemark binding technology. The NEW patent-pending TourThrow results in a 32% saving of energy required to flex a telemark ski boot. Energy that, when multiplied by thousands of uphill strides, significantly reduces your workload during ascents. In the down or tour mode position, the TourThrow reduces the amount of pressure created by the pre-compressed cartridges when in the upright ski mode.G3,also the first manufacturer to use compression spring cartridges in telemark bindings, has set what is now the industry standard. They offer three versions of cartridges with appropriate spring stiffnesses for compatibility with different telemark boots' variety of flexes. See below for cartridge to boot recommendations.
You don't need the hassle of excess weight when you're trekking uphill in the backcountry, so keep your weight down and the durability up with the TARGA T/9 Telemark binding from G3 Genuine Guide Gear. Mount them easily - they'll stay in place even with rough treatment thanks to the 4-hole drill pattern and quad-riveted to box design while the lightweight aluminum toe plate and heel tube cut down your costs in weight.
