Starting with the proven platform of the ION, we looked at every part, every mechanism, and every screw to evolve the idea of a fully-featured binding at the lightest weight possible. With the ZED we set out to define the next generation of lightweight high-performance touring bindings.

Anti-snowpacking features built into the toe and brake designs keep snow away and make for a confidence-inspiring step-in. Optimal toe elasticity for maximum energy absorption & minimized prerelease. Wide freeride mount transfers power to the ski & provides pull-out resistance. The wide center support of the turret and a metal wrap-around base transfer power and precision to the ski.  Leashes and Brakes are sold separately. 

Same advanced technology as the new 2022 bindings, just featuring a different color scheme.

Zed 12s with AT Ski Crampons Never Fail

These have been my go-to ski setup for years. I ski hard and I often carry backcountry essentials and camera equipment, so I trust this setup to last even when weighed down. It doesn't matter the terrain or skier, it's the setup to buy.


Excellent, good quality.
