Description of G3 Genuine Guide Gear Onyx Brake SetIf youre a guide in the backcountry, other peoples lives can depend on the gear that you choose. Thats why, in 1995, when G3 started making avalanche probes, they decided to hold every item they made to a higher standard. Will this piece of equipment improve the abilities and safety of professionals who live and work in the backcountry The design of the ONYX binding is focused on the best combination of lightweight, high performance, and usability. We stayed true to our commitment to lightweight by designing an enhanced Tech system toe attachment that provides a rigid and secure boot interface, an easy step-in experience, and a high level of retention. We then added a heel mechanism that shifts fore and aft to allow for an easy switch between ski and tour mode without having to release the boot from the binding. Finally, we added an easy to adjust mounting plate system so that one mount fits multiple boot sizesFeaturesDin Settings 5 - 10 My 12 MzWeight 1430g 50ozMaterial Forged aerospace aluminum toe-jaws, chassis and heel-post.
