The G3 Ruby ski bindings offers a true lightweight performance option for skiers who have low retention settings. With a DIN settings starting at 5, this binding can give lightweight skiers a consistent and reliable releasable binding even at the lowest settings.
G3 started out several years ago by asking Alpine Touring skiers what was missing in their current choice of bindings. Backcountry skiers consistently told them that they wanted more performance and usability, without a weight increase. Taking that as their goal, G3's design team went to work to develop a lightweight, high performance, and user-friendly AT binding. Started by creating an enhanced Tech system (Dynafit) toe attachment, to provide a rigid and secure boot interface and an easy step-in experience. Then they added a heel mechanism that shifts fore and aft to allow for an easy switch between ski and tour mode without having to release the boot from the binding (which is about the best thing ever!!!). Of course, they remained focused on weight and ease of adjustment every step of the way.
The end result is the Ruby, an AT binding that deserves the G3 name. Both uphill and down, the Ruby delivers a premium ski experience. Its features and construction have and will delight and impress AT skiers everywhere.
Easy to switch between tour and ski mode on-the-fly
