Coveted by skiers around the globe, the ION's feature set and performance has earned a loyal following from seasoned mountain guides to resort freeriders looking to go deeper beyond the boundary lines.

New for 2022, an updated and sleek black colour scheme.

Easy, confident step-in sets the tone of the day so you can put your gear in the back of your mind and focus on what really matters - your ski objective. Forward pressure and optimal energy absorption provide a smooth, reliable ride that aggressive skiers have been begging for in the backcountry. 

QuickFlick Heel Lifts means they're easy to grab with pole or hand. Turn the ION heel in either direction to lock for touring with either hand.  The snow clearing channel prevents snow buildup and avoids unwanted pre-releases. Heel AFD gives consistent release for all boots, independent of sole type. Includes powerful & dependable brakes.

Great binding

This is my 3rd G3 binding.
They have always functioned great and are reliable.
Would definitely buy the Ion again

So much better than the competition!!

I switched to ION 10 after a gear fail in icy conditions with my Dynafit bindings that led to quite a nasty injury and a long hike off a mountain. ION 10s are life changing - intuitive, easy to use and rock solid!! Love them.

I already had the ion 12 (the old model) and use them really hard for 5 years and never had a problem. Just changed for the new model cause can’t be real that they last so long. Still have the old ones just in case for replacement. But doubt that I’ll need them.

Great binding

I really like this binding. I have used the Dynafit Radical ST bindings for 6 years now and the Ions are much better. Easier to step into, lightweight, and they ski very well.
