The Voile Hardwire 3-Pin Telemark Binding is one of the most unique of all telemark bindings in the marketplace. It is a combination of traditional design and new technology.
The 3-pin and bail toe box is adjustable to provide the best boot/binding fit and performance of any telemark binding available. Add the internal compression spring cartridge heel assembly and you have a uniquely versatile binding. The Hardwire 3-pin heel assembly can be locked on the LP heel for no heel resistance uphill ski touring. You will be amazed at the difference in ski touring without a heel assembly attached to your boot. More importantly it is a redundant system for extended backcountry touring.
The tempered stainless steel Hardwire connecting rods provide superior lateral control and excellent on-snow performance. The Hardwire rods attach to the toe box via smooth brass pivot point and the toe box is guarded from wear with a thin stainless steel wafer. Compression spring cartridges spin for easy adjustment to your boot size.
The Hardwire 3-Pin toe box is manufactured from 6000 series aluminum and is tempered to a hardness of T6. Further, the steel bail is tempered and embossed to provide incredible long term durability.
The 20mm V-120 riser is molded from superior strength glass-filled nylon. The riser platform is ramped to eliminate complications from the natural curve or "rocker" of a telemark boot. Other high performance design characteristics include a wide ball-of-foot platform riser and wide LP Heel platform for superior ski edge control. The V-120 riser has an industry standard 4-hole pattern in order to mount directly to skis with pre-installed threaded inserts.
The wide LP Heel platform accepts Voile LP climbing wire for uphill ski touring. Unique to the LP Heel are recessed notches for the climbing wire to prevent bending when touring on steep traverses. Further details include an LP spacer to prevent excessive wear on the ski top-sheet from the pivoting climbing wire.
Strangely this is the favorite binding of many freeheel Telemark park riders who loves it complete hold and built like a tank.
