    Heel lifters that deploy automatically and are made out of extinct whale penises.

    There should also be some type of retractable skin function to the ski bases.

    It looks like a mutant electrical plug from the 30s and a broken piece from a transformer toy.

    Nah, I think they're just not attached and fall off. My verticals have that feature.

    No, they're removable. If using without the brakes there's a profiled base plate front piece that goes in their place.

    It's nice to see them returning to removable/exchangeable brakes.

    Looks like two springs on the back for forward pressure? And maybe it still pivots? Tech bindings always seem interesting to watch develop

    I'm psyched. Vipec toe with the safer alpine like release (tib-fib mitigation) and alpine/kingpin heel. I asked for this. I'll probably buy it. Also probably just committed to mounting my quixotes with vipecs given the same mount pattern.

    Going to get samples later in the month. Till then here are some pics

    OK first the Vipec for 17-18 - you can color coordinate for blue!! Oooh. Stepin is better. Looks like spring for toe is higher so its easier to actuate

    Technical data

    DIN 5 - 12

    Weight 580 g (+ brakes) so drops 38g from last years. Not sure how they did that. Brakes are 80g

    Options standard ski brakes for ski widths
    80 / 90 / 100 / 110 mm

    Or you could use the clips for even more grams saved . It made sense to have removable ones when it affected the forward release but now seems kinda pointless.

    Heel

    Front release via heel. According to the PK "As in alpine bindings, when the DIN value is set, the front release occurs via a heel jaw with a dy-namic way of 9 mm. The reset force of the spring prevents a pre-release and compensates the high tensile forces on the leg in a for-ward fall."

    Also DIN 5 -12

    50g more than VIpec. 630g with brakes. Brakes go to 120mm

    I hope the heel pattern is similar to vipec.
