Tyrolia drenalin 13 Alpine Touring Binding Tyrolia drenalin 13 Alpine Touring Binding
Tyrolia designed its Adrenalin 13 Alpine Touring Binding to shed as many ounces as possible while still giving you the powerful performance you want for the descent. Your boot rests 36mm above your skis, which makes it excellent for edging across steep, technical precipices with ease. And the Freeflex Platform allows the FR Pro Toe and FR Heel to float atop the ski without inhibiting the ski's flex, which is a dream for big mountain bombers who want an AT binding that still provides every inch of ski flex. With a simple flip of a switch, you can change from ski mode to climb mode in order to hike comfortably. Just stick your pole's tip into the plate at the back of the binding to release the heel and you're ready to climb, and press it back down when you're ready to ski. The binding's open cell construction prevents icing near the toe to help you hike with ease. And a Climbing Aid offers three different heights in order to help you cover steep sections efficiently.

Tyrolia mbition 12 Alpine Touring Binding Tyrolia mbition 12 Alpine Touring Binding
If it seems like everyone and their mom is offering an AT binding these days, it's because they are. (Free gear tip: Just because Mom offers you a discount on her homemade AT bindings doesn't mean you should buy them.) Tyrolia was one of the more recent entrants into the freeride-oriented AT game with the Adrenalin, and now the 84-year-old binding manufacturer is serving up the lighter, faster Ambition 12 Alpine Touring Binding, which uses the same technology as the Adrenalin but is a better bet for longer tours where covering serious ground takes precedent over hucking spine-compressing cliffs. The Ambition weights in at 4. 5lbs per binding, which isn't featherweight but is 10oz lighter than the Adrenalin, and has a wide 42mm footprint that's designed with bigger skis in mind. Since larger skis require more powerful input, the Ambition's front bracket is made of metal, which resists torsional twist better than plastic, and also is less prone to the eventual toe slop that's an unhappy feature of most plastic-bracket AT bindings. Tyrolia has also done an excellent job of keeping the 90-degree pivot point directly under the toe, giving the Ambition an easier, more natural walking motion that's enhanced by four climbing aid heights. One of the drawbacks of standard AT setups is an unpredictable change in the flex of the ski due to the long plate that's mounted between the toe and heel pieces. In an inspired moment, Tyrolia built the Ambition with a FreeFlex system in which the heel and toe are connected by a floating tube, letting the ski flex naturally for a more predictable, consistent ride. As a bonus, this system also allows for virtually infinite adjustment, making the Ambition a one-size-fits-all binding (all boot sole lengths between 260 and 350, anyway--you'll be fine unless you're an XXL Sasquatch). It's compatible with AT and traditional alpine soles, and allows you switch between ski and walk modes without stepping out, saving you time and trouble. Someth...

Tyrolia mbition 12 Carbon Touring Binding Tyrolia mbition 12 Carbon Touring Binding
Have a hard time believing that dinky pin bindings are going to give you the downhill performance you want after you've spent all morning hiking for that one run' Then step into the Tyrolia Ambition 12 Carbon Touring Bindings to shed serious lbs from your setup without sacrificing an ounce of safety or downhill prowess. How did they do it you ask' A special ingredient called carbon is used in the frame of the binding to make this variation of the Ambition almost a whole pound lighter than its non-carbon cousins.Tyrolia has been producing bindings for going on 85 years and its release of the Ambition last season was the company's first offering in the AT market. Far lighter than almost any frame binding you'll find on the market today, the Ambition 12 Carbon is the first major innovation we've seen in frame-style bindings for quite a few years, and it will be a welcome companion during those longer tours when you don't want to just make it down, but ski, huck, and rail your way down your line.Since The Ambition is made by Tyrolia, it delivers the same high elasticity and freeflex technology you get from the company's dedicated alpine bindings. With the exception of the carbon frame, the Ambition is identical to Tyrolia's other AT bindings. The AT toe piece smoothly pivots as you walk, but has a gliding AFS plate for a friction-less feel on the downhill. The Freeflex technology allows the binding to maintain its natural flex through a free gliding plate that runs withing the titanal heel track, the result of which is the solid downhill performance you'd expect from a pair of Tyrolias. The binding can be switched from walk to ski mode, without having to step out of the binding, and the heel has three different climbing aid heights for the ascent. The DIN maxes out at 12, making it a great binding for all but the biggest skiers.
