Alpine binding performance on the downhill AND pin compatibility on the climb? The Shift is a new breed of binding that does everything right. Previously, if you wanted to ride a binding that performed like a downhill binding in the backcountry, you had to go for frame bindings – and the extra weight and limitations that come with them. Alternatively, if you wanted to take advantage of the lighter weight and freedom of movement that pin bindings offer, you had to sacrifice some of the safety and performance on the downhill. After 7 years of development, Salomon has released a binding that offers the best of both worlds: pins for the climb, step-in bindings for the ride down. At 1.77kg/pair, the S/Lab Shift MNC Bindings could be your one-binding quiver. Pair them with your favorite pair of boots and ski with confidence.
- Carbon-infused PA is used to create a light and strong binding.
- 47mm of elastic travel prevents pre-release and matches Salomon's flagship STH2 binding.
- Sliding toe pedal allows for compatibility with all norm boots on the market.
- An anti-friction plate ensures reliable release, regardless of your boot type.
- Toe-piece uses pins for touring, and traditional step-in toe for skiing.
- Going from tour to ski is as easy as stepping in a downhill binding.
- Heel uses the same step-down system that is found on most downhill bindings.
- Easy-to-manipulate heel riser allows you to switch from 2° to 10° of rise.
- DIN settings of 6 to 13 offer a range wide enough for most aggressive skiers.
- Certified for downhill and alpine touring boots.
- Recommended for skiers weighing between 66 and 125kg.

The boot and binding systems must match for best performance and safe use.
The release setting determines how easily the binding will release the ski boot from the ski is the skier falls.

Enables you to go from touring to descent mode without removing your skis.
