The Voile 3-Pin Cable Traverse Telemark Binding bridges the gap between our Hardwire 3-Pin and 3-Pin Cable bindings. It is an ideal binding for skiers who enjoy long touring days over moderate terrain with occasional steep pitches and prefer softer-plastic or leather boots.
The toe piece is essentially the same as that of the Hardwire 3-Pin, being robustly constructed of the same 6016-T6 aluminum and tempered steel toe bail. The 3-Pin Cable Traverse employs a similar, but slightly-lower, heel pad than the Hardwire 3-Pin, but, likewise, offers dual-height climbing elevators. By contrast, 3-Pin Cable Traverse makes use of our time-honored, cable springs, rather than rods and cartridge springs, and drops 11 ounces of weight, per pair, in the process.
Unlike the Voil̩ 3-Pin Cable binding, the 3-Pin Cable Traverse mounts to a ramped 10mm riser. (All Voil̩ risers are pre-drilled with a 4-hole pattern that is standard in the industry.) This moderate shim still provides good leverage for tipping the ski without scraping the toe piece, as well as better purchase into the ski core, itself.
Versatility on a diet. That's the 3-Pin Cable Traverse.
