Dynafit Beast 16 Bindings – 2014

FOR: Neutral
MSRP: $1,000

From the Editors of Freeskier:

Dynafit breaks the mold with this radical improvement in the world of tech bindings. Boasting a release value of up to 16, this 935-gram beauty was developed with the help of Eric Hjorleifson. It offers a rotating toe piece for elasticity and less space between the boot and the heel pins for added stability.

The Pros: First tech binding with a release value of up to 16.
The Cons: Limited production in the first year. Very expensive.
