Since you are into mountaineer racing, you know that every grams counts, so go with La Sportiva's RSR Binding. The stripped down design gives you ultra lightweight performance because of the perfect blend of aluminum, stainless steel, carbon fiber, and titanium. You get additional weight savings with the 5-gram mounting screw set and three hole heel-mounting plate, which also means these bindings do not have an adjustable release value or boot length adjustment range as they are mounted to your boot sole length.
