I’m a very happy Dynafit binding (and sometimes boot) user, but it’s always cool to see new innovations in concept and design being developed. I first heard about the SkiTrab TR1/2 binding about a year ago and this latest video shows a version that looks a bit more fine tuned. It also shows that although the toe connection is Dynafit/tech-like, the heal requires a special fitting, which it sounds like SkiTrab is working with Scarpa on…guessing from the audio on the video. It also sounds like they are trying to get it to market in Europe next season, so that usually means maybe a year or two after that for it to reach the states.
To me, the TR2 looks like it would be quite a bit heavier than what Dynafit offers and more in the weight range of the G3 Onyx. To me, adding a new attachment system in the heel seems like it might really limit the success of the TR2...but who am I to say? For now, I'm wondering what this binding might bring to the table.
