Absolutely uncompromising. You will be able to rip the downhill just like you do in a resort, with the uphill efficiency of a pin binding while having the solid downhill insurance of an alpine binding.
The Salomon shift is a great option for someone who wants a touring binding that is light and performs well on the uphill but also feels like a more traditional alpine binding on the decent. The shift is a hybrid alpine and touring binding. The toe piece converts from a pin/tech set up into a traditional downhill alpine binging. This means its users do not have to have the pin set up when going downhill. In order to tour with this binding you will need a boot compatible with tech/pin bindings.
As far as the downhill use goes, this binding performs similarly to a traditional alpine binding but has a few drawbacks. This binding has a great responsive feel and is reliable in most conditions. This being said it does not perform identically to a traditional alpine binding. I use this for all my touring needs, however I do not take this out on days when I will only be using lifts. This is a good choice if you are looking for something to take out on the resort but may do a bit of side country throughout your day.
- A versatile touring binding prioritizing downhill performance
- Easy transition from walk to ski mode
- Good power transfer, feels similar to a traditional alpine binding on the downhill

- Only 1 heel riser, this can make touring up very steep terrain a bit difficult.
