    No, I mean in ski mode. The almost flat mode ( I think ATK included it in almost all of their models) is fine for me unless the approach is pancake flat and longer than a km. Otherwise, the low riser...

    Ok, seems like you are firmly in the ultra-light binding with real-ish 1600g skis. I think this is the direction I'm leaning, but I hadn't thought of going that light with the bindings. To be clear,...

    Interesting. This is making me rethink the race to 1,000g skis. Could consider the binding/ski aggregate and make up the extra grams by choosing a lighter binding. Hello MTN or ATK.

    I really like the heel riser flaps that cover the heel pins so you can tour and transition without turning the towers. I think the MTN has that as well. Kind of a necessity for me now.
