Functional Decoupling

Only Howell SkiBindings are functionally-decoupled between retention and release:


Ordinary 2-mode bindings adversely cross-link retention and release:

    The principles of Axiomatic Design Engineering, formalized as the first new engineering discipline in over 100-years by MIT Engineering Professor Nam Suh — are utilized robustly in developing new Howell SkiBindings.  In this way, release is smooth — only when needed, biomechanically — and powerful retention / anti-pre-release — are always available when performing controlled, aggressive, skiing.  Only Howell SkiBindings deploy fully-decoupled Axiomatic Design Engineering technology.  Only Howell SkiBindings deliver powerful anti-pre-release independently of resease settings.  Howell SkiBindings are uniquely the 1st bindings that can be skied at 'chart settings' without pre-release.  This is a 1st within the category of alpine ski bindings.
