Product Descriptions
Backcountry Description: Thanks to the stainless steel toe plate and heel tube, the G3 Targa Ascent S/S Telemark Ski Binding takes on your hardcore backcountry challenges and handles your fat skis with ease. This binding's pivoting toe plate, pole-activated climbing heel, and secure downhill mode increase your backcountry performance, which means you can leave your AT buddies in the dust. This G3 binding's front switch allows the toe plate to pivot as you hike uphill so you don't have to fight against the resistance of a fixed plate. The Targa Ascent S/S's pole-activated climbing heel pops up easily and gives you a more secure hold on steep climbs. Once you're at the top, flip the Ascent S/S's front switch--a sturdy retention bar secures the binding in place for your downhill attack.

Crap

I bought the stainless steel Ascents because I wanted more durability. I thought these would be my favorite binding. At the shop, they tried to sell me Hammerheads, and I didn't listen.After breaking three cables in one season, I decided to switch to the HH. Fortunately, I was working at Grand Targhee and the 22 Designs guys hooked me up with a pair. I have since tried Switchbacks, Cobras, Targas, BD's, and NTNs. The only binding I've found to rival the HH is the Bomber Bishop binding, which is no longer manufactured. Fortunately, I managed to sell my Ascents for $150, and cut my losses.The Ascents not only broke, but they didn't give me nearly the power and performance of the Hammerhead. If you're looking for a backcountry, free pivot binding, get the Axl, from 22 Designs.I would not recommend the Ascent to anyone. The HH or Axl, I'd recommend to everyone.
