Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Tough I have been riding these bindings for a season on Black Diamond Link 105 skis, and was blown away by the light weight of the setup. So far I have been very impressed with the performance. The boot hold is very positive, and the DIN release has worked as consistently as any traditional binding I have used. The have held up very well and look nearly brand new after some hard use. The Good: Light Tough Truly DIN adjustable, to and heel Rides well The Bad: Flipping the heel risers and transitioning with a ski pole can be tricky (not a big deal). As with any AT pin binding, lining up the toe to step in can be difficult. Worth noting: A friend of mine got the same setup at the same time and has been equally impressed, and had the same minor complaints. Definitely two happy customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and reliable Light, solid and reliable bindings. This is what I you need to make your skis beasts during multi-day backcountry days, cause you do not want to have extra problems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, simple, light, trustfull I am 5.4 and weight 120lbs. I used those on the Helio 105... best mix ever. I was looking to make the transition to tech-bindings but could not resolve my self to get those crazy-tiny ones. I am a 75% backcountry and 25% station skier and ski a very wide spech of snow because of the conditions in Quebec : from ice to hard-pack snow, to moguls, to groomed and of course yummy powder. Those bindings are great and don't let you down even on the iciest, bumpiest kind of snow. They released everytime I needed them to do so and stayed on my boots when I get more aggressive on the way down. I had to get used to get in but the mechanism is really nice done. they handle the travels manipulation really great. They are meant for hard use... And on the way up, you can't even feel them, they are really light, really comfortable. I even used those while kite-skiing on the hard-frozen-Hudson bay and they were the best ! Go for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but not great I bought this binding about a month ago because I heard some good reviews and I wanted to give them a shot for myself. I have been skiing dynafit now for almost 12 years and I wanted to give one of the new tech bindings a tryout and see if there are any differences. I just got back from a week long trip to Alaska where I toured on them, skied the resort with them, and took them cat skiing for a day. Overall they worked perfectly. I never released when I didn't want to, the walk mode was super easy to engage, and I thought the weight of the binding was adequate. I have 2 minor complaints and that would be bulkiness and materials. When I tour I like to kneel down with my toes still locked in to take breaks or do some quick snow readings and I found that when I did this my boot would hit the toe piece and prevent me from getting my knee all the way down to the ski. I do feel the toe piece is a little bulky and could be made a tiny bit smaller. Secondly is the materials that it is made of. This is not a complaint that I have experienced anything negative from I just think for the longevity of the binding it could become an issue. I feel like they used to much plastic in the construction of this binding and with all of the lightweight alloy's that are on the market that they could have swapped out some of the plastic pieces for more metal. This could be just my opinion but if I am going to be skinning out in the middle of nowhere I want to have full confidence that I won't somehow chip the binding or break it in anyway and I feel like metal does that for me. It is kind of like a plastic blade on an avy shovel. sure it has a lifetime warranty but that warranty isn't going to help me when I am digging out a buddy and the blade snaps. looking at you old life-link shovels!!! Overall I thought it was a great binding but I do find that there is room for improvement in the construction of the binding. I would totally recommend this to a buddy for day trips and weekend adventures but I feel like if am going to go out for a large week long trip or mountaineering adventure I would rather have something that has more metal in the construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performance I'm not a world class skier by any means, pretty mediocre by most measures. Nor have I tried a dozen different bindings. However as far as I'm concerned, these bindings have never failed to perform for me. Glad I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the future of all bindings (not racing) Mounted this 3rd gen Vipec 12 on a pair of DPS Wailer 112 for about 20 days of skiing. Solid performer. No problem with high speed carving on groomed runs and lots of moguls (Heavenly's Little Dipper and Northstar's Rapids). It does release when you need it to do so. No pre-release. Only complain for me is that during aggressive and tight turn (usually mogul), sometimes the upper ski may accidently cross and pressed the heel latch of lower foot causing me to go tele-marking unexpectedly. Of course, most of people don't mogul with this combination. I don't think it's an issue. Transition between ski to walk mode is geniusly easy. Back from walk mode to ski mode is a little bit harder to master, but non-issue especially when one doesn't need to take off the skis. If temperature is cold, the toe piece can get frozen so that it's harder to open up if I want to get out. People complained that in the previous Gen 1 and 2, getting in was a problem, not with this Gen 3. Very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvement on the original Vipec I have a pair of original Vipec's on some BC skis that paid for themselves maybe the 6th time I used them. They released after I hit a buried staub, which would have blown out my MCL and likely ACL. These Vipecs, after 1 day BC and two days carving big ol GS turns at a decent resort on Blues with a friend's kids that wanted some pointers, seem a might bit better. I had them professionally mounted, and the ft/lbs on all release settings were spot on. Entry was easier, and they did not pre-release (as they shouldn't with what I was skiing) and energy transfer felt great, again pulling GS turns. Nice!
