    Looks like a release value (RV) of 12 - on the heel anyway. I'm guessing that's not DIN (or TUV?).

    anybody considered that Dynafit must also be working on a tecton/kingpin centric set of clamps??
    I hope so. Dynafit bindings are so much sexier. The vipecs don't even start conversation when I ski lift served in Ontario. Or it's the trap I blast.

    I'd be curious to see how the Vipecs would last as a resort binder for a larger person. I have no doubts you'd be happy with them as a bc binding.

    having a proper DIN reference, i suspect they're fine, but also curious on that front

    That sounds pretty good.

    Posting for future following. Would love something like this on my wootests for in and out of resort without having to use swap plates...

    Knowing Fritschi they'll be aiming for full alpine DIN rated and TUV tested with this.

    So it should release test on a bench tester the exact same as your Look/Solly/Marker alpine bindings.

    If Dynafit hasn't been inbreeding too much, their new models will be drop in replacements to existing mounting holes ... not another change in drilling templates.

    Well considering the number of different hole patterns they have now I fully expect them to add four more new hole patterns with the new bindings.

    ABSOLUTELY NONE I just know the rep from a rando event where we chased our egos for 24 hrs

    but given the direction of Marker & now Fritschi I have posted what I think is a pretty good WAG

    So when it comes to pass I can quote my WAG and say "I told you so!"

    Figured something was on the horizon, given Beasts are less than $250 new in Euroland.

    I hear Fritschi is releasing full tech schematic breakdowns so maggots can 3d print mods and start another prototype.

    Also there will be CNC anodized brake arms
