Dynafit Beast 16 Ski Bindings with Brakes
Closeouts. Dynafit's Beast 16 ski bindings are super-beefy freeride touring bindings for hard-charging skiers who split their time between in-bounds and out-of-bounds terrain. The rotating, lightweight toe piece helps you stay locked in when charging big backcountry lines, and burly brakes prevent runaway skis.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by bill from folsom, ca on Thursday, May 18, 2017i am a Dynafit fan. So when i saw these (originally 1000 dollars) for 175 i had to have them. They are much heavier than a Speed Turn. They are beautiful and if i did not mount them on a ski i would place them in a sculpture garden. Why are they discounted? 1. all the parts are in the box but the box is torn. 2. the metal piece that is supposed to be glued to the toe and protects the plastic from your ski pole is off one of the toes. 3. the brake is 105 and most BC skis are currently wider than 105. 4. On the net there are complaints of toe binding problems, which might be user error but i doubt it. 5. In tour mode on the lowest riser setting (no riser) the heel is up a bit which could drive you crazy if you did a lot of flat touring (I do not). 6. They are heavy. The good - 1. These make great downhill bindings - much better than Speed Turns because they absorb shock and are safer. 2. Are better for big skis going fast than Speed Turns - same reasons as 1.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jerry from NH on Thursday, December 15, 2016Heavy as far tech bindings go, but well worth the weight! A burly binding that is closer to an alpine binding than it is a tech binding. I'm not afraid to push its limits.
One important note, it requires a piece be added to your tech boot that makes it incompatible with alpine bindings. It's a shim type thing that attaches to the back of the boot.
