The special challenge in the design of a touring binding is that it must be equally suited for uphill walking on skis and downhill skiing. It guarantees the same safety level as conventional downhill bindings. One special challenge with touring bindings is that low weight is of even bigger importance than for downhill bindings. The challenge during the development phase was to address space constraints, weight constraints, functionality and ease of use. MIM proves with this challenging application that it is capable of achieving not only excellent functional properties but also cost savings of 50% compared to competing manufacturing technologies.
