The Curated Take
The Speed Radical set the pace with lightweight and durable AT bindings years ago and created the standard by which all other bindings are measured today. Designed to hit that sweet spot between lightweight numbers and plenty of strength to hit steep and stiff snow.
I have used the Speed Radicals for years, and they really shine on long and fast tours in the backcountry but also are very capable skiing in bounds if you like trees and off-piste skiing. Capable of three uphill settings, including flat with two heel risers, it gives you plenty of options on the hike.
One of the best things is that replacement parts are easy to find since these bindings have been around for so long.
- Best for backcountry touring
- Easy to use
- Incredibly durable and tough for all skier levels
- Can be kind of tricky to mount and should be done by an experienced professional
