Editors' Choice Award
If you truly need more performance features than this lightweight binding provides, you fall into a tiny sliver of skiers at the hard-charging end of the spectrum.

$429
Solid, simple ski bindings that cram some unique attributes into a reasonably priced package. We only wish they were lighter, included brakes, or both.
75
$575
Reliable, proven ski mountaineering bindings for all around use by expert backcountry skiers with a somewhat out of date overall design.

$350
Best Buy Award
Through all the turmoil, Dynafit's Speed Turn lineage remains reliable, simple, and affordable.

Top Pick Award
For a big and fast riding subset of the backcountry ski population, or those looking for a look similar to their resort gear, the Fritschi Tecton is just what the doctor ordered.

Top Pick Award
Incredibly light ski bindings; for moderate (for your abilities) backcountry skiing, these bindings could be just the ultralight ticket you need.

Marker is an established company, and their Kingpin has a proven reputation; some iterations have had reliability and recall issues, but we and many others have had excellent experiences with these bindings for hard and fast backcountry skiing.
