There's usually some compromise, right? Your bindings usually favour one direction on the vertical axis - they either skin well and sacrifice on security coming back down, or they help you carve like Cody himself without being efficient for ascending. With the S/Lab Shift MNC Ski Bindings for 2019, Salomon have found that beautiful blend that will make your days in the backcountry the stuff that dreams are made of.
Built for downhill performance
By including a simple lever in the toe, Salomon give you the gift of being able to transition from touring pins to a true alpine performance with up to 13 DIN - the Shift is not for the faint of heart. They also pack 47mm of elastic travel, making them rival the very best in the alpine binding world for power efficiency.
Also built for touring performance
The Shift MNC will let you open out your stride and kick turn to your heart's content too. The pins offer you easy step-in at the start of your climb and full range of motion for efficiency as you skin. Switching between modes is simple when you reach the top, as is shifting through the handy climbing aids. One last point - they weigh a mere 1.7kg for the pair which is pretty light when you consider the power they bring to your powder feast.
Salomon have hit the nail on the head with this binding. We don't believe that backcountry skiers should have to compromise going either direction, so the S/Lab Shift MNC Bindings are a winner for us.
