The Curated Take

4.5/5

The Tyrolia Attack 14 GW Ski Bindings are well-suited for skiers who value durability and reliability. These bindings are compatible with a wide range of ski boots, including adult Alpine and GripWalk models, and offer a broad DIN range (4-14) to accommodate various skill levels. They excel in reliability, with a sturdy construction that ensures the bindings only release when necessary. However, they may not be ideal for beginners because of their high DIN setting. The bindings are also easy to use and adjust, making them a practical choice for skiers prioritizing performance and value.

Ideal for
  • Durable construction
  • Reliable heel locking
  • Consistent and reliable release
  • High level of adjustability
Not ideal for
  • DIN goes to 14—might not accommodate some skiers
  • Poor brake quality

Expert Reviews of the Tyrolia Attack 14 GW Ski Bindings

Brennan P I have been skiing various models of the Tyrolia Attack Series for over six years. The 2024 model performs just as expected compared to the other versions I have used. I have skied them down bowls and in tight trees and carved up groomers. The Attack 14s have a durable construction that will endure endless abuse at the resort. There are various colors to match any style of topsheet. It is nice that different boot soles will work with these bindings. The DIN range is wide enough for most skiers. However, if someone is an aggressive skier and/or a bigger person, they might need to get something with a slightly higher DIN range. I personally have no complaints with these bindings, as I do not need a DIN setting higher than 14. These are a great option if someone wants an affordable, reliable binding. 
 I have used Tyrolia bindings for a long time on many of my skis, well over 30 years. I currently use the Tyrolia Attack 14 GW bindings on my latest skies. The Attack 14 provides excellent performance while skiing. The ski binding is the most important part of a skier's gear as it protects them from injury. The Attack 14 has always released when it should and stays on when it needs to. The DIN setting is easy to adjust for those who need to do so, and its wide DIN range allows for easy increasing and decrease. I found it also releases easily when removing my skis, more so than some other bindings.
Maximilian DeRoest The Tyrolia Attack 14 is truly a jack of all trades. Many different skiers will feel right at home on this binding. It boasts a very smooth and consistent 30mm of elastic travel at the toe and 16mm at the heel and a toe height adjustment, making it very simple to fine-tune the binding to one's boots. While working as a ski technician, I amassed almost every ski binding certification, including Tyrolia. I can honestly say I've never had to fail a Tyrolia Attack binding, let alone make major adjustments to ensure proper release. If someone wants an industry-proven binding with unique color options, the Tyrolia Attack 14 may be their ideal fit.

Release Reliability

5/5
Brennan P gave 4 of 5 stars. The Tyrolia Attack 14 GW bindings are ones that I can rely on. I have never experienced any issues with the release functionality of these bindings. The times I have had a ski pop off while using these bindings, they should have indeed been released. Considering that I primarily ski in the trees, having a binding that I know will not release prematurely is essential.
 gave 5 of 5 stars. In all my years using Tyrolia bindings, they have never once failed me. They release when they should and stay on when I expect them to. When I do fall and they should release, that release always feels smooth and quick. I have never had a time where I felt it should have released sooner.
Maximilian DeRoest gave 5 of 5 stars. In terms of release reliability, it's hard to out-match Tyrolia bindings, especially their flagship all-mountain binding, the Attack 14. As a ski tech who carries nearly every binding certification out there, I can say that some bindings don't have good quality control, and after mounting hundreds of skis, some bindings just fail right out of the box, and they have to be warrantied immediately. This isn't common, but I've never dealt with anything like that on a Tyrolia binding. Besides my expertise in testing ski bindings in the shop, out on the hill, they release like butter every time, precisely when they should.

Durability

5/5
Brennan P gave 5 of 5 stars. I have had various iterations of the Tyrolia Attack series of bindings, and the new model is as durable as any other I have tried. The construction materials are top-notch. There is no doubt that they will be able to withstand hard charging at the resort. What more could I ask for in an Alpine binding?
 gave 5 of 5 stars. Of all the Tyrolia bindings I have used, not one has had any sort of mechanical failure. I was using Tyrolia bindings 30+ years ago. The only thing I have ever done was to replace the anti-friction piece on the toe part of the binding.
Maximilian DeRoest gave 4 of 5 stars. I'm not a big terrain park guy myself, but I have lots of park friends that run the Attack 14, and if one knows park skiers, they can be some of the roughest skiers on the mountain when it comes to their gear. Yet, the Tyrolia Attack 14 stands the test of time for myself and the long list of hardcore skiers behind them. At the end of the day, the materials, construction, and quality control with the Attack 14 are all top-notch, making it a stellar option for just about anybody.

Versatility

4/5
Brennan P gave 3 of 5 stars. When it comes to versatility, these bindings are a one-trick pony. These bindings are meant for one thing only: skiing the resort. Skiers won't use these bindings to skin uphill or do power squats down the hill on their tele setup. These bindings are meant to take skiers downhill traditionally, and they are great at doing just that.
 gave 5 of 5 stars. The Attack 14 has a wide DIN range. It goes from 4-14. This is far beyond the range I use. I know I can set it to exactly what I want. Though this binding may not be completely suitable for beginners, it should be suitable for most other levels of skiing.
Maximilian DeRoest gave 4 of 5 stars. Most bindings on the market these days are built to handle just about any conditions out on the mountain. What makes the Attack 14 better than most bindings is that it has an adjustable anti-friction plate that allows me to fit the binding to a standard Alpine sole and the advertised GripWalk sole. Beyond the versatility, when it comes to adjustment out in the field, this binding performs great on groomers, in pow, and even on super choppy terrain at high speeds. I personally had a very hard time finding the limits of this binding during testing.

Power Transfer

4/5
Brennan P gave 4 of 5 stars. The power transfer of these bindings is just as good as any other I have skied. I have not noticed any issues with turn initiation. Whether skiing down a tight tree run, making quick turns, or smoothly skiing down a wide-open bowl, these bindings have no problem getting my skis pointed in the direction I want them to go.
 gave 5 of 5 stars. I have used this binding on very hard snow in addition to soft and new snow. I've also used in it some bumps. I have always felt that the Tyrolia bindings provided me with the performance and power transfer that I need and expect in combination with my Salomon ski boots.
Maximilian DeRoest gave 4 of 5 stars. What determines power transmission on ski bindings usually comes down to two factors: stiffness and stack height. Well, be it as it may, the Attack 14 is very stiff and has a low stack height, making the power transmission better than most other options on the market today. In the field, the transition from edge to edge is noticeably easier and faster.

FAQs

What do you love about this product?

Brennan P There are various qualities about the Tyrolia Attack 14 GW ski bindings that I like. Firstly, they are durable and are great bindings for inbound Alpine skiing. There are plenty of color options, so skiers can find a color that will match their topsheet if that is important to them. The ease of locking my boots into these bindings is smooth and seamless. This is a reliable binding that doesn't cost a small fortune. 
I have used Tyrolia bindings for over 30 years. I remember and used the old 360 series many, many years ago. Not once have Tyrolia bindings failed me in any way. They release when they should and do not release when they should not.
Maximilian DeRoest I love just about everything about this binding. The reliability, safety, power transmission, and durability are all excellent.

What was your favorite moment with this gear?

Brennan P One of my best memories using these bindings was a March pow day that didn't stop giving. There was powder everywhere. However, anyone who skis busy resorts out west knows the fresh turns won't last all day. I was skiing tracked-out powder toward the end of the day, and these bindings had no problem keeping me locked in. I felt stable, ripping at speed through the piles of powder all over the mountain. It was a memorable day on the mountain, and I am glad I had these bindings with me.
One of my favorite moments was when I first put on and took off the skis. I found the force needed to both clip into the binding and to push the release lever on the heel was noticeably less than what I have seen in other bindings. It definitely makes things easier.

Why did you choose this product?

Brennan P I was looking for a simple binding that would be good for resort skiing and had a range of DIN options. I didn't need anything too fancy but didn't want the cheapest option possible. I also liked that there were various color options to match them with my topsheets. These bindings are an ideal mixture of functionality and value for the money. I primarily find myself skiing tight, steep trees or steep bowls, and these bindings have been fine with getting me where I want to go.
I chose the Tyrolia Attack 14 binding because of my many years of extensive experience with the brand. Tyrolia bindings have never failed me in any way.

What is the value for the money versus other options?

Brennan P These bindings are some of the best value bindings on the market. The construction is solid. As mentioned, the DIN range is extensive enough for most skiers. The release reliability is excellent. These are not the cheapest bindings on the market, but they are also not the most expensive. Skiers can't go wrong with the Tyrolia Attack 14 GW bindings. 
I have generally found the Tyrolia binding prices to always be competitive with other brands. This includes the higher-end bindings for advanced skiers.
Maximilian DeRoest The Tyrolia Attack is a great binding for one's money. However, some new options on the market have a lower stack height and higher elastic travel for the same price. Now, these other options have yet to be proven over time as the Attack has, so it's hard to label them as better, but competition is definitely on the rise.
