Fritschi Diamir Freeride Plus bindings

Yesterday I drooled onscreen about the Black Diamond Kilowatt skis sitting here in my office ready to cut deep snow in Utah next week. But what about my bindings? For this trip I’ll be testing the Fritschi Diamir Freeride Plus, which are essentially alpine bindings with a touring mode.

They are solid in any type of terrain going down, with a maximum DIN setting of 12. But then with the flick of a switch you can enable a free-heel mode for climbing up-mountain with skins. An adjustable-height toe piece fits both AT and alpine boots.

Bonus: Fritschi’s “Power Transmission Control” technology lets the boot attach directly to the binding bar, which slides freely as the ski bends, allowing, the company says, for optimum natural flex of the ski.

Available now.

Price: $425

I was very disappointed with the quality of my bindings. I thought it’s the best choose for backcountry stuff, but after I paid over 400$ for thing which has broken at the first day, and also I hurt my knee, and couldn’t ride for about half a month, I doubt in their quality.
Looks like they retrench on quality of plastic.
