If you want the unsurpassed up-hill freedom of a tech binding but aren't willing to sacrifice as much on the decent, G3
built the Onyx for you. The G3
Onyx Alpine Touring Ski Bindings with 95 mm Brakes were built to combine the low weights of tech bindings with the ease of use and downhill performance that are often the selling points for non-purists. G3
designed the toe piece to reduce pre-releases, securing your boot in the tourquey-est of situations, while the toe-lever is easier to activate, makes the step-in process and switching between tour and ski mode a breeze. The heel piece was also designed for ease of use, with pole-actuated high and low risers for easy adjustment mid-skin track and the ability to switch between ski and tour modes on the fly. Add in an adjustable base plate mounting system and a super-strong forged aerospace aluminum and fiber reinforced chassis, and you've got a binding that's ready to take on anything from week-long tours to lift-served slackcountry.
Toe Lever - The easy to use toe lever requires less force to activate, offering complete control of step-in process as well as tour lock mode.
Forged Aerospace aluminum toe-jaws
Pole Actuated Heel Lifts - Easy-to-use and reliable, the high and low heel lifts feature increased detents for secure stowing. Pole actuated heel lifts make for easy climbing adjustment and more efficient touring.

Forged aerospace aluminum heel-post
Ski crampon compatible
The adjustable base mounting system in the heel and toe offers 33 mm of quick adjustment for multiple boot size fittings and maintenance of boot center mounting.
