G3 Ion LT 12 Alpine Touring Binding With Leash

A lot of folks were liking what the G3 Ion had to offer last season, but wanted to see a lighter, brake-less version for those long tours and big mountaineering objectives when every gram counts, so G3 took heed and developed the Ion LT 12 Alpine Touring Binding With Leash for all of you minimalist, gram-counting backcountry skiers out there. Being the lightest offering in the Ion lineup, the Ion LT weighs just one pound per binding but maintains the same downhill prowess as its predecessors.Don't be fooled by the Ion LT's lightweight design, because this binding still wants to rip descents like a burly freeride binding. The mounting pattern is wide to direct more power to the ski, and the forward pressure heel elasticity works to maintain consistent release values during landings and compressions. You'll find the same smart designs on the Ion LT that reduce the amount of time you spend fiddling with your bindings thanks to easy step-in guides, which help direct the toe inserts on your boots into the toe pins, along with a snow clearing channel, which help to prevent snow and ice from accumulating on the toe piece, causing a false connection that can result in pre-releases. The heel piece can be turned in either direction, meaning you don't have to turn the heel a full 360-degrees just to put it back into ski mode, and the Quicklift heel risers are specifically designed to be easily grabbed with either a ski pole or by hand.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
