The table below shows all our binding which have a walk mode, our alpine bindings are not included. It's in weight order with the heaviest at the top.
Interpreting the table:
Ease of use. What I mean here is how convenient they are to get on and off. Some bindings such as the Freeride Pro are really easy to step in to, most downhill skiers just won't notice the difference when using them . At the other end of the spectrum are bindings like the Dynafit Speed. These are tricky to get clipped into at first, you need to use leashes rather than brakes, and it is a much bigger hassle at first compared to easier to use bindings. However with use most of these issues become less significant as you get use to the technique required.
Downhill Performance. Well they are all fine on the downhill, however some are better than others. Here integrated brakes, a wide body and torsional rigidity make a difference.
Uphill Performance: Well this is pretty easy to work out, the lighter the better. But also some bindings have better pivot systems than others. Some also have better heel height adjustments.
Boot compatability. The pin style bindings only fit Dynafit compatible boot. Other bindings will fit all touring and standard downhill boots. Further information about compatible Dynafit boots is here.
