You're standing on top of a walled-in, 50-degree couloir, looking down at the steep face peppered with the footprints of your agonizing bootpack, knees slightly shaking, and trying not to think about the long walk back to the car when you reach the bottom--to say you worked hard to get here would be a colossal understatement, so you better be ready to enjoy the descent. Luckily you've clicked into your Fritschi Tecton 12 Bindings and you're ready to rip this gnarly line all the way down to your ant-sized buddy way down in the run out.The Tecton 12 uses the same nimble, uphill-friendly toe piece of the popular Vipec, which has quite a bit of lateral elastic travel to enhance retention when you're charging through crud and ice, while the heel piece is more similar to a traditional alpine binding to give you the security and confidence you need to slay the descent. Touring bindings with this style of heel-locking lever typically come with some baggage, usually in the form of a substantial weight increase, but the Tecton 12 weighs in at only 1lb 7oz per foot. The Tecton 12 features a lateral release in both ski and walk mode as well as a DIN certification for increased safety and security, and the three-level heel risers are quick and easy to flip up to accommodate changing slope angles.
