Ski bindings are the device that connects/binds a ski boot to the ski. Bindings play a significant role as safety devices and transfer all the inputs as you make them in the skies. The ultimate reason from where do we get the control is nothing but the bindings.
All the alpine touring bindings use two essential designs, called plate bindings and insert bindings.
Plate Bindings: These were the first to be developed and added a metal plate (or bars) under an alpine-style binding. These plates attach to the skis under the toe piece by a hinge so that the boot and binding can articulate in uphill mode.
Insert Bindings: Insert bindings are a little more fiddly to enter and exit than plate bindings and also require more excellent care when adjusting for boot size and release settings. Still, they are so much lighter that the vast majority of tourers now use insert bindings, and every year, more and more models are available.
The first commercial available insert binding is Dynafit TLT Speed 2.0 binding.
