Can anyone recommend some LIGHTWEIGHT strap bindings?
I hope it's possible to keep the TOTAL gear weight within 1 lb of a comparable set-up with lightweight AT boots and step-ins.
*Board - Viole split decision free ride 66
*Boots - Old K3s but just upgraded to Sportiva Trango Ice Evo because they are LIGHT (< 4lbs, so about 1lb less than AT boots) and I use them for alpine climbing, mixed, snow, ice, rock and want to keep my step in crampons.
*Why - Obviously I want to continue to ride with strap bindings and my strange choice of mountaineering boots (hey - that's how I learned) rather than switch to step-ins and lightweight AT boots and/or snowboarding boots.
So any good strap bindings that are within 1-2lbs of step-ins? LIGHTWEIGHT is key.
