If you're trying to get after it in the backcountry, the Atomic Shift MNC 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings are pretty much the name of the game. They're the only binding out there that gives you the ergonomic pivot point and light weight of a pin binding for the uphill, plus a full toe and heel alpine binding for the way down. That means better power transfer, more consistent releases, increased safety, and harder charging. Once it's in downhill mode, the Shift is indistinguishable from a traditional alpine binding, so you can feel extra good about riding with confidence, whether that means carving perfect corn with confidence, or skinning out to that mega spicy pillow zone and gettin' buck.
Dual Mode Toepiece – MNC (Multi-Norm Certified) for skiing, including WTR soles. Converts to a tech toe for touring (requires a boot with tech toe fittings).
Automatic Wing Adjustment – Adapts automatically and easily to your boot width and height. It also keeps release values constant for worn out boots.
XL Wings – Long wings for a great envelopment of the boots.
Toe Height Adjustment – Adjustable toe height to let you switch between different boot norms.
Easy Step-In – Less effort needed to step-in and out of bindings.
Lateral Elasticity – 47mm
Sliding Toe Pedal
Freeski Brakes – Self-retracting brakes for a close position to the heel so they never catch.
Hike and Ride Switch – Lever at toe shifts between hike and ski mode.
Accessing Toe for Touring – 1. Pull back on block between toe wings to open tech arms. 2. Depress front lever to widen arms to step in. 3. Pull up on lever to lock arms securely for skinning.
Preparing Heel for Touring – Pull back on the brake pad and fix the brake in the "up" position by stepping down on the pad.
Climbing Aids – 2° & 10°
Multi Norm Certified (MNC) – Compatible with all adult boot sole types, including ISO 5355 Alpine, ISO 9523 Touring, WTR (Walk to Ride) and GripWalk.
Tech Toe Fittings Required For Use In Uphill (Touring) Mode
Requires Boot with Full Heel and Toe Lugs – Not compatible with boots like the Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour and TLT, Atomic Backland, Salomon X-Alp and Arc'teryx Procline, among others. These boots have shortened or non-existent lugs and will not fit into the Shift in downhill mode.
Low Profile Chassis – A low stand height improves your feel for the terrain and enhances power transmission to the ski.
Oversized Platform – A super-wide platform allows for maximum lateral power transmission, especially for wider skis.
+Elastic Travel – Ultimate elastic travel to hold in boots during impact in order to go bigger with no risk of pre-release.
Compatible with Salomon S/LAB Shift Crampons
Carbon-Infused PA Construction
Adjustment Range – 30mm
