New for 2014, the Salomon
STH2 13 takes the place of both the STH Driver 12 and 14 in the lineup. Incorporating a number of changes designed to improve leverage and power transmission, especially with wider skis, the STH2 13 features longer toe arms, a 3D Driver toe pivot like its predecessor, and a wide platform heel taken from the Guardian AT binding. If you've grown accustomed to the bomber performance of the STH Driver bindings, get ready for even more of the same from the STH2. Note: Mounting pattern is different from the old model STH, and brakes are not swappable between these models. Compatible with all ISO Alpine soles and all Salomon
WTR sole blocks.
3D Driver Toe - Salomon's trademark Driver Toe delivers the burl where you need it.
Micro Simultaneous Wing Adjustment - Toe wings adjust with a simple screw.
XL Wings - New longer toepiece wings provide superior lateral power transmission, better centering and easier step in in powder.
Manual Toe Height Adjustment
+Elastic Travel - Superior elastic travel gives you a chance to ski out of that situation until you really need it to release.
XL Stomp Pedal - A fixed, wide pedal under your boot gives you optimal power transmission.
Wide Platform - A 73 mm wide platform under the toepiece ensures maximum power transfer with wide skis.
Heel Flex Interface - This feature allows your ski to flex naturally underfoot while keeping you and your bindings connected.
Low Profile Chassis - A low stand height of only 18 mm keeps you close to the ski for improved snow feel.
Progressive Transfer Pads - Pads under the binding base enhance feel and increase dampening.
Freeski Brakes - The new design features enhanced deployment for wide skis and a new mounting system without the traditional metal tabs and no screws. Freeski brakes are not compatible with older STH heels.
WTR Technology - This binding is compatible with all ISO Alpine soles and Salomon WTR (Walk-to-Ride) touring and tech soles.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
