The Curated Take

Leo Cocchiara, Ski Expert
By the Expert Community

I've demoed every alpine ski binding on the market and the Warden for years has remained one of my top favorites because the reliable retention and power transfer are best in class. My ski style at times can be described as a linebacker being shot out of a cannon. Because of that, I have a habit of exploding out of bindings when I'm getting a little too excited, even when I have them cranked up accordingly. The Warden however has never let me down in that sense. I've always stayed securely connected to the ski right up until the point where I actually do need it to release and when it does, it feels smooth, safe, and crisp. It's everything you can ask for. On top of that it's versatile to any discipline, any ski, and even any boot thanks to it's MNC rating, making it one of the most capable options in it's category. The one only flaw that I've found with this binding after years of hard use on both my personal skis and the rental fleets that I've managed, is that the very front of the toe piece, where the plastic of the DIN window wraps around has a tendency to crack with hard use. It's more aesthetic than anything and never a deal breaker for me but worth considering when looking at the options.

Ideal for
  • The Warden 11 is versatile to all styles of skiing with great power transfer
  • The Warden 11 has reliable release and an easy step in
  • The Warden 11 is MultiNormCertified to take any mainstream bootsole
Not ideal for
  • The plastic housing of the DIN window that wraps around the front of the toe piece has a tendency to crack with hard use
  • Not the lightest binding in it's class
  • User should avoid over tightening the toe height adjustment

So Helpful!
5 /5
I've been out of the ski market for so long that I had no idea there were so many subtle, but very distinct differences in equipment. Thomas almost instantly responded any time I had a question or wanted a clarification. Decision paralysis or confusion would surely have taken over if not for Thomas's help. Thank you!

Austin was amazing as always
5 /5
It's my 2nd time working with Austin - originally he had picked a snowboard out for my son that has worked out super well. Now he helped me pick out a new board for myself after using the same second hand ill-fitted one I had for 10 years. Austin was super responsive throughout the whole process, super enthusiastic, and had a lot of knowledge to share with regards to his suggestions. I could tell that all of his picks for me were well thought out and has made me super excited about trying out the Solomon Assassin I ended up purchasing.

Mariah is amazing!
5 /5
Coming into this, I do not have a lot of knowledge on skiing equipment and neither do my family or friends. Mariah helped me by being super knowledgeable, answering all of my questions, and addressing all of my concerns. She is very quick with her responses and will provide you with an array of options that are tailored to your preferences. I appreciate that she took time to discuss the details with me. I would highly recommend her services to my family, friends, and anyone looking to buy ski equipment! She is the best! :)
