Fritschi Tecton 12 Carbon Ski Touring Binding
Now in its fifth year, the Fritschi Tecton 12 is a unique and revolutionary binding which combines all the virtues of lightness and ease of use with alpine style heel performance. The toe design is unique with its DIN 12 lateral release and elasticity which makes it incredibly comfortable compared to traditional pin bindings. This is combined with a heel system which incorporates a vertical rail and power cup which grips the heel with an alpine binding style tenacity.
Improvements for 2021-22 include Carbon fiber-reinforced high tech plastics for the front and heel housing. In other words: the Tecton is now even more stable and longer lasting.
Climbing up to the peak with ease and getting downhill safely. Fritschi aim to achieve this without losing any performance with the lowest possible weight. The optimal mix of materials makes the difference.
Bindings are subject to extreme stress. To ensure a long-lasting and reliable high-precision function Fritschi’s designers use metal components wherever high dynamic forces are acting on the system, e. g. hardened steel, forged aluminum or metal alloy components made by complex processes.
In the back, where the forces are highest, the Tecton remains as stable and precise as an alpine binding. The hold-down system with a non-turning alpine heel jaw and the rail transmits the power directly from the boot to the ski without any loss. The Tecton equals both the performance and the safety of alpine bindings. Any unwanted release is prevented by the long dynamic path. The binding reliably releases at the DIN setting. The easy step-in and the intuitive control provide security, especially in challenging terrain. The right mix of light high-tech synthetics and high-quality metal alloys provides superior stability at a low weight (only 550 g / unit).
