The shift has become the gold standard for ski tourers that want a binding that tourers, but also charges on the down with a consistent and certified release feature. Combining the uphill efficiency of a pin system, and the downhill performance of a fully DIN certified Salomon Alpine binding, the Shift offers skiers the best of both worlds. At first glance the binding looks like a standard alpine get up, but using a simple lever in the toe, the binding transforms into an uphill machine. Tech toes offer 90 degrees of pivoting motion and the advantage of only lifting the weight of the boot while touring. Couple that with an easy step in system, lightweight construction, and up to 10 degrees of climbing aid this binding slays on the uphill. However, what truly sets this binding apart from the crowd is what it‚s capable of on the downhill.
