An Integrated Freeride Spacer overcomes the shortcomings present in every other tech binding—suspension between pins and the ever present heel gap. Eliminating heel gap and ensuring constant interface with the full width of the boot provides power transmission not possible in any other tech binding. While most tech bindings incorporate higher ramp, lifting the heel substantially higher than the toe the Voyager XIV has a flattened freeride oriented stance which allows for a more natural athletic position providing more power and easier pivoting for wider more rockered skis. Built on an oversized mounting platform, with low ramp Freeride Stance Geometry, and substantial elastic travel, all in an ultra-light package, the Voyager XIV blurs the line between aggressive freeride and light, efficient free touring like no binding we have ever seen, and like nothing you’ve ever skied.

Spring Free Toe Piece Design:
Spring free toe piece prevents snow/ice build up, ensuring easy entry/exit, and consistent release while keeping added snow weight to a minimum.
Uphill Hardness Variator:
Allows for change in the tension of lockout force in the toes, compensating for boot wear, ensuring retention when locked out and reducing strain on the mechanism.
Cammed release pins provide the most stable downhill performance, ensuring industry leading release precision and the softest step in available.
Elastic Response System:
12mm of elasticity ensures natural ski flex, vibration damping and shock absorption for industry leading retention during large landings and aggressive skiing.
Integrated Freeride Spacer:
Ensures constant interface between ski and boot providing phenomenal power transfer, superior driving power, and increased retention during compression from rough landings and aggressive skiing. Dynamic AFDs incorporated into the platform ensure precise release for maximum performance with uncompromising safety (AFD elasticity and elastic travel distance coincide for maximum preservation of power transfer).
Magneto Heel Flaps:
Magnetic locking heel risers allow for 5 different climbing heights (flat + 4 raised).
Oversized Mount Pattern:
45mm mount pattern allows for better power transfer on wider skis for improved control, faster turn initiation, and quicker engagement.
