Are you are skinning monster approaches? Multiple laps? Charging hard lines? Wasatch-based Olympus Mountain Gear made the Telemark Tech System (TTS) ski touring binding for you.
The free pivot engages right away when you lift your heel off the ski, unlike traditional 75mm bindings that delay engagement until about 15° of heel lift. Instant pressure to the ski gives better control and carving performance as well as more natural access to the sweet spot. TTS also automatically compresses the bellows first when engaging the binding. When weighted, the ball of the foot remains in contact with the binding until the boot bellows fully compresses allowing deeper knee drive into the belly of the turn.
TTS's full range free-pivot lets you kick and glide like a champ. The pivot location beneath your toes provides a natural feel that allows you to lengthen your stride for faster climbing.
