Good Binding

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ibikerunski from Central Oregon on Friday, October 21, 2016
I've been using Rottefella NNN BC bindings for about 25 years on various pairs of touring skis to light duty Telemark skis and I have never had anything break (the rubber toe bumper wears out eventually but it is easily replaced). This particular model looks to be slightly wider than the older versions by a few millimeters. I prefer the NN BC binding over the 75 mm 3-pin for light Telemark skiing (as long as you can find a boot that is stiff enough) as the screws mounting the binding are further apart which spreads the torque over a larger area of the ski. If you are touring the NNN BC binding is preferable over the NNN binding because it is a lot stronger binding (NNN boots don't fit NNN BC bindings). I have seen several broken NNN bindings in the backcountry.

The problem that a lot of people have with this binding system is snow getting packed into the mechanism. This is a result of not clearing snow out of the bar area on your boot. This is operator error and not the fault of the binding. Note: I reserve five stars for innovative products. This product has been functioning well for several decades.
