The Rottefella NTN Freedom telemark bindings bring the benefits of NTN to a lightweight binding setup that enables you to tour deep into the backcountry for fresh powder. At 1,500g per pair (3 lbs. 5 oz.), the Freedom bindings are comparable to other telemark bindings, yet they have the benefits of a step-in design and releasability. Step-in design makes the bindings easy to get in and out of-no more bending down to attach heel levers to your boots. Unlike traditional telemark bindings, NTN bindings are symmetrical so you don't need to worry about which ski is for the left foot and which is for the right. Sideways release helps prevent injuries during falls. Free-pivot mode provides resistance-free touring while skinning up hills; flip-up climbing wires reduce fatigue on your legs as you skin up steep hills. Bindings provide great torsional rigidity for immediate energy transfer from boot to ski edge. NTN bindings require NTN-compatible boots (sold separately); such boots do not have the traditional 75mm duckbill, making walking easier. Power Tube spring cartridges create consistent resistance as you drop into a turn; Large bindings come with medium-flexing blue Power Tubes installed. Small bindings come with soft-flexing green Power Tubes installed. You can install green (soft), blue (medium) and red (stiff) cartridges (not included) for a desired flex. Rottefella NTN Freedom telemark bindings include 110mm ski brakes that fit most powder skis. Large bindings fit Garmont NTN boot sizes 26 mondo and up; fit Scarpa and Crispi NTN boot sizes 26.5 mondo and up. Small bindings fit Garmont NTN boot sizes 25.5 mondo and down; fit Scarpa and Crispi NTN boot sizes 26 mondo and down.
Produced by the Norwegian binding specialists at Rottefella, the Scarpa NTN Freeride Binding is a power trip for hard-charging resort and slackcountry Tele riders. The NTN Freeride allows you to get in and out of the binding while standing and will release from the boot in the event of a nasty crash. But the really sweet part is how it skis; the binding provides an incredible amount of lateral stability that translates into powerful edge control, providing the power to drive modern powder skis with over 100mm underfoot. Step in and drive your big, fat skis at mach speeds.
The NTN Freeride Telemark Binding from Rottefella provides the best downhill performance and is can be easily mounted to multiple pairs of skis so you can match your gear with the conditions in front of you. Symmetrical bindings means there's no confusion which one goes on which ski and the lateral release, heel elevator, and standard 110 mm brake keep you secure and stable for the climb up and the free-heel turns on the way back down.

The Rottefella NTN Telemark Binding has finally arrived. We've been hearing aobut this new system from Europe for the past decade and we started to think we'd never actually be able to skin on them. We were wrong, and the NTN Bindings are everything we hoped they'd be and more. Traditional 75mm tele bindings simply dont offer the power, performance, and ease-of-use of modern alpine touring and downhill bindings. With NTN, you get the confidence and ease-of-use that come with alpine bindings, but with the free heel and elegance of tele. With the NTN system, the boot is gripped firmly in the binding, independent of the spring tension. There is a direct connection between the ball of the foot and the ski. The flex pattern is consistent and adjustable with Green Rigid or Yellow Medium Power Tubes. With 75mm cable bindings, this connection is indirect and flex is often variable.
