Silvretta 500 Binding
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Silvretta 500 binding fits a unique niche in the ski mountaineering world. Still the only binding that will fit plastic climbing boots and even some leather mountaineering boots, in addition to nearly any randonee or downhill ski boot. While not in the same league as Fritschi, Marker, or Dynafit for downhill performance, there are still users out there that need a ski mountaineering binding primarily as a transportation device. For approaches to ice climbs, humping big loads to base camps, and still offering some skiing performance, the Silvretta 500 will likely never be replaced. Silvretta 500 features: Weight:1600g DIN release values 4-10 Two position climbing aid can be actuated with ski pole Sizes (boot sole length in millimeters): S (265-315), M (295-345mm), L (320-379mm)News update: winter 2012 is the last season for availability of the Silvretta 500 in the US. Unless a new importer takes over, this binding will not be here winter next season.
