Deep Dive: Alpine Touring Bindings, 2020

We directly compare several of the current, more downhill-oriented touring bindings, including the Salomon / Atomic Shift MNC 13, Marker Duke PT 16, CAST Freetour, Fritschi Tecton, Marker Kingpin, G3 ION 12, Fritschi Vipec EVO, & Dynafit ST Rotation 10. We also discuss what you tend to gain and give up by going to much lighter touring bindings, and in what scenarios that lighter category might make more sense for you.
