Check out this innovative concept called the Sky-Step binding (be patient and ignore the hard to swallow intro…the unveiling comes at the end of the video) which uses the pendulum effect to automatically adjust the height of your heel risers as the slope angle increase or decreases. This looks like a pretty cool design, if it works correctly in the real world. I have a hard time believing that snow and ice wouldn’t foul this system up though. I guess you could always coat it in a Pam, Armor All, Rain-X combo. 😉 What do you think?
