The Salomon Guardian 13 Small Alpine Touring Bindings are a new model for 2014, filling the needs of skiers who don't need 16 DIN holding power. Equally adept at downhill skiing in the area or touring to remote locations, the Guardian 13 gives you the performance advantages of low stack height, solid Salomon alpine performance, and a walk/ski latch that's easily reachable with your ski pole and without taking your skis off.
Flat Nose Flat front toepiece allows binding to pivot 90 degrees for optimal skinning.
Adjustable Toepiece Height Permits maximum precision in the boot-to-ski interface
XL Stomp Pad Extra wide fixed pad for maximum lateral power transmission
Automatic Wing Adjustment
Double Full Flex Maximizes boot/binding contact for better skiing performance
Dual Level Climbing Mode
Oversized Platform 80 mm wide platform under the toe for superior performance with wide skis
Hike and Ride Switch Easy to access switch allows going from ski to walk mode without taking off your skis, using just the tip of your pole.
WTR Compatibility WTR (Walk to Ride) compatibility allows you to use any Salomon WTR sole or any ISO Alpine sole.
Simplified Base Plate Clean design under the toe reduces snow buildup during skinning.
Strengthened Rigidity Wide baseplate design combined with specially shaped connecting bars improves edge-to-edge power transmission.
Low Stand Height 26 mm stand height for better snow feel and increased power transmission
Boot Sole Compatibility The Small fits boot sole lengths 260-320 mm.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Salomon Guardian 13 Small Alpine Touring Bindings 2014:
Super binding if you can't afford the whole dynafit system. Natural stride. Easy to switch modes. Feels super solid on the downhill. No difference in performance in comparison to a normal alpine binding. It is heavy, but that's really the only downside. Definitleybrecomond over the fritchis or marker setups.
