The award winning G3 ION 12 is back for 2018 and it’s even lighter than ever. This model has the burliest DIN settings in their line-up, so even aggressive skiers can benefit from the super lightweight construction. Weighing 579g it is one of the lightest freeride tech bindings on the market, as well as being one of the most innovative and reliable.
The ION 12 is designed to be used on wider modern skis, for big mountain and freeride skiers alike. The wide freeride mount gives superior transmission of power, as well as improving the torsional rigidity of the binding, so you can trust that you’re not compromising on performance with this super light binding.
As you would expect with such a technical binding, safety is paramount. The heel piece features an Anti-Friction Device (AFD) to ensure a consistent release for all tech insert boots, regardless of sole type. Unique to G3 is their snow-clearing channel that allows you to clear snow from beneath the toe piece with your ski pole, ensuring that your binding is fully engaged before skiing.
The BootStop design has been simplified; building on the already secure and fluid step in process it is now even easier to align your boots. Forward pressure in the heel and favourable toe elasticity produce the maximum absorption of impacts as well as providing a trustworthy release setting. The ease of use and thought that has gone into this product is apparent by the QuickFlick heel lifts that are simple to grab with your pole or hand and rotate either way, unlike other bindings, for pure innovative simplicity.
If you're looking for a tech-style binding with a low weight, top-notch safety features and excellent ease of use with a range of DIN settings that can match up to some of the best Alpine bindings on the market, then the 2018 G3 ION 12 is definitely a binding you should be considering!
