Wide toe and heel mounts precisely transfer power. The patented E.R.S. ® (Elastic Response System) system absorbs energy resulting in consistent release values while allowing the ski to flex naturally under compression for improved downhill performance. The heel pivots rotationally to provide consistent release and retention.
The unique - and patented - CAM heel system adjusts to impact forces, providing far better control and skiing precision than simple U Forks. The system ensures accurate, adjustable control of the release tension while maintaining very easy step in and solid power transfer. The design uses a CAM profile pressed against the heel pins by a pre-tensioned spring. When a fall requires vertical release, the CAM profile provides precise resistance to the pins.
Magneto® heel climbing aids are easily flippable for two climbing positions plus flat mode. Twist the heel easily in either direction - because the heel tower doesn't have the double duty of holding down the brakes.
Adjustable toe clamping force creates more secure uphill retention than other tech bindings, especially as boot tech inserts wear. Toe step-in is easy. Integrated crampon hooks allow stress-free ascents up bulletproof snow or in no-fall zones.
Constructed predominantly from alloy, the Core 12 Evo Freeride binding is solid and robust at a feather-light 360 grams – better performance at a fraction of the weight of other bindings.
The Core 12 EVO is made for HAGAN in partnership with ATK in Italy. The Core 12 Pro is identical to the ATK Raider 12 / R12 other than color and includes six ATK patents.
ELASTIC RESPONSE SYSTEM: an elastic sliding system in the heel allows unrestrained flex of the ski during compression and excellent skiing performance.
CAM RELEASE SYSTEM®: stabilizes the heel pins and provides the typical torsional stiffness of ATK® bindings.
INDEPENDENT RELEASE VALUES: fully adjustable VERTICAL (My) and LATERAL (Mz) release systems (5-12).
HEEL FLAP WITH RISER: the updated Magneto Heel Flaps® provide 3 different climbing heights. Switching between two is easily done with your ski pole.
Easy Entry System®: new geometry of the toe makes step-in easy and confident with any tech boot available on the market, even in case of worn out soles.
25mm ADJUSTMENT PLATE: integrated in the heel enables fast adjustment for boot substitution (up to 3 full sizes).
SNOW BLOCK TOE®: prevents snow/ice infiltration and also limits snow build up on the toe piece.
U.H.V.® System (Up-hill Hardness Variator): Uphill retention adjustment system built into the toe. It compensates for boot insert wear and tear, provides a proper locking strength for each user and reduces the pressures on the locking mechanism.
CRAMPON SLOTS: built in
