From blasting down wind-buffed snow in the resort to getting low in deep backcountry pow, the 22 Designs Outlaw X Binding is a true do-it-all freeheel clamp. Building off the success of its first NTN offering, 22 Designs took the same sweet flex, instant engagement, and massive spring travel of the first iteration of the Outlaw and refined it a bit by introducing a new claw that allows for easy entry into the binding and an equally simple exit via the pole-activated mechanism. So if you're making the transition from duckbill boots to an NTN setup, you won't have to stoop down to fiddle with heel bails when you're gunning for first chair or getting ready for the descent on a steep, precarious ridge in the backcountry. The Outlaw X borrows the same free-pivot performance made famous by the Axl and has a similar six-hole mounting pattern for the secure ski-to-binding retention aggressive freeheelers demand when arcing GS-style turns in the resort or backcountry. The spring-loaded climbing bail engages with a quick flick of the pole to reduce leg strain when touring in steep terrain, and the main die spring can be adjusted between five different settings to get the ideal amount of tension you need to suit your turning style. And while the main spring is adjustable, 22 Designs is also offering an additional stiffy spring set (sold separate) for skiers that prefer a stiff, aggressive feel from their bindings.
