The Salomon Warden is a whole new generation of binding. Inspired by the backcountry it has the same oversized platform and toe as the Guardian Touring binding, but is actually the first binding to be TUV approved for all three types of soles: DIN, Touring and a Walk To Ride (WTR). That means it fits every normed boot in the market. It also combines the strength and precision you need on-piste with the smooth, progressive power transfer and control you need when skiing all over the mountain and through any snow.
We tested the new Warden 13 from Salomon and found this was a solid freeride/freestyle binding built with a more durable brake that also retracts to help prevent getting caught up on each other when riding switch or when really cranking your edges over on groomers. Another new feature is the Transfer Pads which allows for increased dampening and forgiveness, If you are looking for a durable binding for your wider skis with out having to change boots the all new Warden 13 is an excellent choice.
