   Patented, super-low 17mm stand-height allows the addition of just about any lifter while still complying with FIS regulations — and reduces cumulative knee strain.  1° reverse ramp-angle for firm tip pressure.  Variable ramp-angle shims are included.  Sculpted side-walls for anti-boot-out tipping.  Solid stainless steel internal-components maximize durability.  Floating Mounting System provides maximum long-term retention of the mounting screws into the ski.  Additional 3rd-mode of lateral heel release — without pre-release — provides ACL-friendly skiing*.

*** Howell SkiBindings is against (a) ski waist widths greater than 90mm  AND  (b) all 'pin-binding's' (except new Trab TR2) — due to their association with a new type of skiing-injury:  severe, high-energy tibia-plateau and tibial-tuberosity fractures.  Both new types of skiing injuries are the fastest-growing categories of injuries in skiing — matching the growth of fat-skis and pin-bindings.  The high-energy nature of the new types of skiing fractures involve many multiple-fragments, difficult surgical reconstruction, and 10 to 15-months of aggressive rehabilitation.  Fat skis on firm snow are a serious problem for the sustainability of our beautiful sport.   References:  (1) Dominik Heim, MD;  SITEMSH-Japan, 2016.  (2) Zorko; Nemec; Matjacic; Olensek;  Alpine Skiing Simulations Prove Ski Waist-Width Influences Knee Joint Kinematics;  ISSS-Innsbruck, Austria, 2017.   (3) Stenroos; Pakarinen; Jalkanen; Mälkiä; Handolin;  Tibial Fractures in Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding in Finland: A Retrospective Study on Fracture Types and Injury Mechanisms in 363 patients;  Scand J Surg Off Organ Finn Surg Soc Scand Surg Soc., Sept 2015,  doi:10.1177/1457496915607410.  (4) Improved Short Term Outcomes in Tibial Plateau Fractures of Snow Sports Injuries Treated with Immediate Open Reduction Internal Fixation;  Janes, MD; Leonard, MSPH; Phillips, PA-C; Salottolo, MPH; Abbott, MD, Bar-Or, MD;  ISSS-Innsbruck, Austria, 2017.
