Technology and products are ever-evolving, and with an increasing interest in the sport, more companies are getting involved in the Alpine Touring game. Salomon has spent years doing research and development to create the newest binding in their fleet - the Guardian binding.
The new Salomon Guardian binding will change the way skiers approach and enjoy the backcountry. It is designed to provide the highest level of confidence, ease of use, and downhill performance for a heightened skiing experience.The binding’s low profile chassis features a lower stand height for greater stability and enhanced terrain feedback, and the oversized platform enables maximum power transmission and responsiveness. Salomon also wanted to develop a binding that would give a great experience in the mountains by making transitions between walk and ski mode as convenient as possible. The binding features the Hike & Ride Switch which allows skiers to keep their skis on while switching between hiking and riding modes by using their ski poles to make adjustments.
The Guardian binding provides the power, precision, and on-snow feel of a high-performance free-ride binding, with the benefits of a convenient hiking system. The Salomon Guardian will set the standard for the ultimate backcountry skiing experience. Above all, the new binding maximizes skiing performance and adds new meaning to enjoying skiing when venturing off the beaten path.

K2 Gotback Womens Skis
The GotBack has somewhat of a split personality—both of them equally likeable. Mounted with AT bindings, its lightweight cap design and All-Terrain Rocker make a perfect companion for trail breaking and dancing through backcountry glades. But mounted with alpine bindings, it’s equally adept at slicing through cut-up crud at the resort. Think of the GotBack as your two best friends.
