Comments about Atomic Tracker 16 Large Alpine Touring Ski Bindings (130mm Brakes) 2013:

I'm 6'2", 170 lbs, I used these all last season, mostly at Whistler/Blackombe, probably about 30-35 days, mostly steep steep stuff out of bounds. Ran into a couple issues on them, the rivets that fasten the connecting bars that hold the toe to the heel would work themselves loose when I was touring, and the rivets went right through the top coat of my new skis, happened to both skis. Another skier on a backcoutnry tour that stayed at the same hut realized the same thing had happened to him after I brought it to his attention. Also the pin that acts as the leverage point for the heel release to snap down was super loose when my boot was engaged in the binding and I had to constantly tap it with my ski pole after each run to keep it centered. I caught it a couple times half down a run with the heel poriton of my binding coming apart. Definitely could have been worse, if I hadn't kept an eye on it all the time. The bindings are with Atomic now so they can have a look at them for warranty reasons, apparently they are going to fix them or give me new ones. My wife had the Salomon Guardians and didn't run into any of these issues, only the paintjob is different on these things, so not sure if mine was a fluke but definitely annoying. I'll be curious to see how they improved this design. The pic of the new one online looks identical so I'm not holding my breath for any drastic changes, and Atomic claimed they had never seen what happened to me before. The only other person I spoke to that had them last season had the same problem as me though, so it's a little hard to believe. I know it's a new product so I'm mostly just waiting to see how Atomic treats me before I make too many judgementsbut there are definitely a few things they need to work out on these things. When they were holding together though they are bomber bindings and provide a lot of control, even if you do sit kind of high on the ski, which i don't really mind.

Elevator problems

Cons

  • Poor Elevator Construct

Best Uses

  • Downhill

Comments about Atomic Tracker 16 Large Alpine Touring Ski Bindings (130mm Brakes) 2013:

For some reason the elevators will not stay up. They tend to kick back into the position they should be in for ride (locked)mode. I am usually unaware when this happens and click back into my binding while climbing. Having this happen several times during one climb gets a little frustrating.

    Comments about Atomic Tracker 16 Large Alpine Touring Ski Bindings (130mm Brakes) 2013:

    I'm an aggressive skier looking for gnarly backcountry runs. Have been extremely impressed with these AT bindings so far...have only used them maybe 10 times this season, but nonetheless am impressed. The low stance keeps you close to the ski improving controllability. They also seem extremely well-built improving my confidence in them while trekking into the backcountry. How can you go wrong when you get the pros from Salomon and Atomic together to create the ultimate AT binding?!;)

    Atomic Enters the AT Binding World

    Comments about Atomic Tracker 16 Large Alpine Touring Ski Bindings (130mm Brakes) 2013:

    The Tracker is everything I expected. A smooth ride that feels stable and relatively low to the ski. I wasn't worried about coming out of the binding, it feels secure even if the ski gets deflected around. The walk feature is super easy to use my only gripe would be that there is no zero degree. You have to be at some inclination with the climbing ladder so across the flats I feel a little forward. But I am willing to sacrifice that for the ski ability and connection to the ski. This binding is plenty stiff torsionally and doesn't twist even when skiing less than ideal conditions.

    Comments about Atomic Tracker 16 Large Alpine Touring Ski Bindings (130mm Brakes) 2013:

    With no snow on the ground yet, I have only got to admire these to this point. So far, they were easy to mount(nice to have the jig at my disposal), and adjusted easily. They do feel a bit heavy, but the bomber construction for the descent is worth the extra work on the ascent. I will have further reviews on these once the snow comes.
