"Voile Backcountry Skiing 3-pin Cable Telemark Binding Grey One Size 601BK. Such springs were typically used in conjunction with some sort of flexible cable. Enter the Voile 3-Pin Cable Telemark Binding. Introduced in 1989 the name is a bit of a misnomer. As with all Voile tele bindings there really is no cable in the conventional sense. Instead a pair of long rigid coiled springs with hooks and a locking heel piece complete the necessary toe-to-heel loop. The springs expand ever so slightly with each telemark turn and can be easily adjusted on the heel end. It's a design that has stood the test of time and still is very popular with skiers who prefer the comfort and flex of leather and softer-plastic telemark boots. The so-called cable assembly hooks to a bomber toe piece akin to that of the Voile Hardwire 3-Pin. Similarly it can be removed to facilitate climbing and reattached for making turns. At 1 lb 13 oz. per pair the Voile 3-Pin Cable binding weighs in like a featherweight and performs like a middleweight. And if it ain't broke don't fix it."
Part of the beauty of tele skiing is how easy it is to explore the backcountry without any of the special setups that fixed-heelers need. Voile's 3-Pin Cable Traverse Telemark Binding provides plenty of classic spring-cable support for the descent with a tempered aluminum toe that locks your foot down for the ascent--just pop off the cable for easy, resistance-free climbing, and stick it back on when you're ready to roll at the top. Dual climbing bails take the stress off your legs, too, so you'll be that much fresher when it's time to shred.
Ready to step out of the tracks and give telemark turns a try? This cable-enhanced Voile 3-Pin binding offers better control than standard free-heel touring sets.
The Voile 3-Pin Cable Traverse Telemark Binding includes their classic 3-Pin Cable binding featuring a robust yet lightweight 6000 series T6 aluminum toe-piece atop a newly designed 10mm shim and a 18mm heel pad. The 3deg ramp angle in the binding shim helps reduce rocker launch to keep you off your tippy toes and the dual height, 55mm and 75mm climbing bars help prevent your calf muscles from cramping on the way up.
