The NTN Freeride is a binding for telemark and freeride skiing. It gives the skier unparalleled edge control and a variety of user benefits. It offers the simplicity and security of an alpine binding without sacrificing the freedom of the heels. Depending on the skier’s weight, boot size and ability, he or she can choose from four different Power Tubes (springs): White (Extra soft),Green (Soft), Blue (Medium) or Red (Rigid) to better reflect their style and/or preference. Ski brakes are included. Standard ski brakes have the width of 95 mm. A 125 mm ski brake is available but sold separately as an accessory.
NTN users experience immediate energy transfer from boot to edge for optimal lateral stability and edge control. Plus, new spring technology provides an even, smooth and adjustable forward flex. The NTN binding has a sideways release system*. With regards to release values, the springs in the NTN binding can be pre-tightened or reduced in tightness. NTN bindings are symmetrical; no left or right ski. Easy in - easy out means you never have to bend over to put on your telemark binding again. With the grip of a ski pole, flick the lever open, step in, and push the lever back down. Scarpa, Crispi and Garmont have designed boots to work specifically with NTN.
