ATK Kular 12 Binding is great backcountry ski binding.
ATK Kular 12 bindings are designed with the weight conscious ski touring enthusiast in mind.
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.
The base plate of the toe piece is narrow, probably to conserve weight. With wider skis, 110mm underfoot, some questions arise as to whether it should be a bit wider. After 35 days of use the toe pieces have started creaking on firmer surfaces. We’ve experienced no premature releases and have been happy with the bindings’ performance so far.
