Product Info

A staff favorite at evo, the G3 Ion 12 Alpine Touring Bindings combine low weight, reliable performance, and a relatively flat ramp angle that closely matches the stance of most alpine binding setups. The result is low trauma conversion between alpine and AT gear, and less apprehension about moving to lighter gear in challenging snow and terrain. Add an easy to access slot under the toe arms that can be cleared using your ski pole, heel lifters that function equally well with the heel turned clockwise or counter clockwise, and easy Pozidrive #3 adjustment of all release value and boot sole length variables and you've got the recipe for backcountry bliss.
