Note the hollow heal tower.

This lightweight binding utilized a u-spring heal tentions system. It also for quick transition from ski mode to climb mode. With the flick of a pole, you can be ready to stomp into ski mode, if you’re into skis on transitions. For walking on flat terrain, the heal piece can be rotated to allow for a zero rise.
