Salomon for 2014-2015 designed the Guardian 13 which has a DIN of 5-13 and is certain to become one of the hottest selling AT Bindings of this season. With the same design as the ever popular Guardian 16 the 13 is the same binding with a lower DIN range perfect for all abilities. The 2015 Salomon Guardian 13 is now Multi Norm Certified so it can take DIN, Touring and WTR Soles.
We are impressed with the all new 2015 Salomon Guardian 13 Ski Bindings for their ability to switch from hike to ski mode with out having to take your ski off. There are times in the backcountry when you just do not want to have to take your skis off and with the Salomon Guardian AT Binding you can just use your ski pole. To lock the binding into ski mode you can just step into the plate and the self cleaning plate allows this with ease.
Other Features: Flat Nose - 90 Degree Pivot for optimal climbing capability Strengthened Rigidity - Improves Edge-to-Edge Power Transmission Simplified Base Plate - Reduced snowpack during climbing mode Adjustable Toe-Height - Can adjust from the top of binding Climbing Aid: Easy to adjust as it stays on the ski not on the heel
Sizes: Small - (260-320mm) Large - (305-360mm)
*It is best to not be on the end of the spectrum of sizes. If your boot is a 318mm and above you should get the Large Binding.
