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.
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.
