The Voile Switchback X2 Telemark Ski Binding turns a good idea into a great one. Designed with the same free-pivoting, ice-free concept as Voile's original Switchback Binding, the Switchback X2 features a longer toe plate for greater contact with your boot and stiffer cartridge springs for extra control when driving those big powder skis. With all that tech, you'd expect to pay a weight penalty, but Voile Managed to keep it around 3. 2 pounds per pair, which makes it the lightest AT tele binder around.
