Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
With the Guardian WTR 13 AT binding, Salomon combined years of proven freeride performance with their convenient Hike & Ride technology and a lower DIN range to bring high-performance AT skiing to a wide audience of skiers.
Go from the resort straight to the backcountry with the Salomon Guardian WTR 13S randonee bindings. They have the feel of alpine bindings, with the benefit of being able to tour in the backcountry. Switching from hike to ski mode shouldn't be a hassle, and it isn't with the Guardian bindings-simply flick the switches with your ski poles to change modes. Aggressive skiers who like to cruise at high speeds will appreciate the adjustable DIN that ranges from 5 to 13. Bindings have a low overall stand height of 26mm for great stability while skiing. 80mm width transmits power from your boots to your wide skis for great downhill performance. Bindings include brakes that come off with a single turn of a screw driver if you need to remove them; choose between 100 or 115mm-wide brakes depending on your ski width. Choose the size that's just wider than the underfoot width of your skis; for example, choose 115mm size for 110mm-waisted skis. Toe-piece height can be adjusted to fit your boots. Flip the climbing bars up with your ski poles to take some stress off your legs when you're skinning uphill. Salomon Guardian WTR 13S randonee bindings fit boot sizes Mondo 27.5 and smaller; bindings are only compatible with boots with alpine DIN soles or WTR soles.
You love getting those backcountry stashes of fresh powder and hucking your meat where no one has gone before (at least not today), so you don't have time for floppy, weak, clunky bindings that make you shiver and pray that won't pre-release on the downhill. Soothe your soul and nurture your daredevil self with the burly Salomon Guardian WTR 13 Alpine Touring Binding, a shred-worthy binding with backcountry capability. An allover low profile and wide platform give you sensitivity to terrain and enhanced power transmission. The Hike & Ride switch lets you go from skiing to hiking and back again without taking off your skis, because sometimes the skiing's that good. Height and wing adjustment for a secure hold and Salomon's legendary binding know-how give you peace of mind when you're scoping that gnarly, exposed line. The Guardian 16 and Guardian 13 top out Salomon's freeride backcountry lineup.
