About this Review: This review is my honest opinion of the ski bindings, which I purchased with my own money in November of 2021.

My take

The Tyrolia Attack 11 GW is a safe and reliable binding for intermediate and lightweight skiers. They are relatively inexpensive compared to other options in this DIN range.

What I was looking for

I was looking for a cheap binding to put on a pair of beater park skis. I was not looking to spend much because I knew I would be beating (and probably breaking) the bindings on park and urban features.

Why I chose this gear

I chose the Tyrolia Attack 11 GW due to the low price point, and I have always been a fan of Attack bindings. I considered buying Attacks in a higher DIN range for durability, but I decided to go with the 11s and see what happens.

What I love about them

  • Release Reliability: Surprisingly, I do not have any pre-release issues when using a 9 or 10 DIN on an 11 DIN binding. They release when necessary and do not release when I don’t want them to.
  • Downhill Performance: The Tyrolia Attack 11 GWs have very similar downhill performance to the higher DIN Attack models. The 11s are just a touch lighter which has its pros and cons.
  • Durability: The Attack 11s have held up much better than I expected. They have many scratches and scuffs, but nothing that affects performance. The brakes are easy to bend back when they are bent, but I do not encounter any other issues.
  • Other: I have always found Attack bindings to be very easy to clear snow off the boot and step in. The Attack 11s are no different.
  • Power Transfer: Although the Tyrolia Attack 11 GW is very lightweight, it has a very solid power transfer. I never felt that these bindings were weak or unstable in any condition.
  • Versatility: These bindings are compatible with alpine and GripWalk soles. They have performed well in all resort conditions.

Issues I’ve encountered

  • Weight: Coming in at around 1,800g per pair, the Attack 11s are lightweight bindings, which can lead to a slightly unstable feeling at very high speeds or in rough terrain. This shouldn’t be a problem with most Attack 11 GW users.
  • Other: The Attack 11s may not look as good as some bindings (Look Pivot, for example), but that is fairly insignificant.

Favorite moment with this gear

My favorite moment with these bindings was at Lake Irwin near Crested Butte. Every season before CB opens, there is a hike park set up at Irwin. I tested these bindings on some vicious features built at Irwin, and I was genuinely scared at first that they would not hold up. Surprisingly, these bindings held up very well to many long sessions at the Lake Irwin hike park.

Value for the money vs. other options

The Tyrolia Attack 11 GWs are certainly one of the less expensive options compared to the Look Pivot 12, Marker Squire 11, and higher DIN options. They are similarly priced to the Salomon Warden 11 and Look SPX 12. Personally, I prefer the Attack 11s over other options in the same price range.

Final verdict

The Tyrolia Attack 11 GW is a safe and reliable ski binding geared toward intermediates. They have proven to hold up to more aggressive skiing, although I recommend a higher DIN option.
