    You also get something that releases laterally at the toe and the heel. IIRC, wildsnow experimented with that a while back and didn't have good results.

    I go through skis quicker than boots. But yeah, I'd be concerned if I was buying a new pair of boots that I wasn't positive would work out. Or like mall walker says, remount with an adjustment plate.

    Why wouldn't you want to ski YFYD terrain on the HR 2.0 or Crest?

    BTW, do you work with/for the US-based Hagan Ski Mountaineering in Breck?

    No lose fer sure, but without the bsl adjustment, the HR 2.0 saves you 115g per binding = 0.5 lbs per pair. Not a ton, but certainly not negligible either if you're going light with skis and boots.

    So what is the real difference between the two toes? I can tell from the website that the SL Evo WC toe is lighter and more expensive, but not much more than that since the description for both is...

    No, I understand that BD just rebranded existing ATK bindings that have already been released. I had forgotten that the Haute Route was the same heel as the RT 2.0. But still, I thought that heel was...

    IMHO, u-springs suffer three major problems, though most of them are (at least partially) alleviated in the new class of "speed touring" u-spring bindings:

    1. Lack of adjustable release value (RV)...

    Awesome. Thanks for the detailed response, Jason. I'd also like to try some of those 200g heels. The BD Helio (rebranded ATK) 200 without the adjustment plate is 165g with adjustable lateral and...

    Thanks for chiming in -- your opinion is super valuable. Have you used the speed superlight 2.0 heel? Does play develop in the u-spring? Besides play are there other performance increases in your...

    No I haven't. I use SSL 2.0 heels exclusively at the moment. Haven't used the B&D top plate or volcano either, so good to know re screws loosening. And I'd prolly choose the Sally MTN or something...

    I like the B&D ones — comfort plates + volcanos. Much easier to rotate. Direct replacement for the silver ones. My wife has them on her skis. Haven’t tried the new black ones, tho.

    Wait, just saw this... I thought the SLR release has 3 riser heights? As per the website:

    "The Heel Flap with raiser provides 3 walking modes: FLAT MODE, + 37 mm and + 50 mm."

    Ah, you're correct. I guess I just wished it was an SLR release -- lighter and more functional. :)

    I would pick Sally MTN or Speed Turn 2.0 (with retrofitted top plate). IME, Speed Turns develop slop around 200+ days. And you have to* shim the toes, which adds weight. But they're a pretty tried...
