ATK are an Italian Ski Touring Binding brand with some fantastic revolutionary lightweight binding designs and we are very happy to have them in the Backcountry UK line up for winter 2020.

The ATK FR14 are redesigned version of their cult Freeraider 14 2.0 binding, designed for more powerful skiers, wider skis and more control than the R12, the FR14 have a release range from 8 to 14. The FR14 also comes with the Freeride spacer which fixes to the heel piece around the brakes to provide a platform to support the boot sole while skiing giving increased ski performance.

The main change from the Freeraider 14 2.0 is that the ski brake has been moved from beneath the toe piece to the heel to improve ease of use.

The ATK FR14 have all of the features you would expect from a fully fledged free touring binding, easy step in, ski brakes, Release value range up to 14, solid ski performance, 3 stage climbing positions, adjustable safety releases and ski crampon slots. All of these features at an impressive 0.72Kg per pair!

Constructed predominantly from Alloy the ATK FR14 feel solid and robust whilst still weighing well under 1KG per pair.

One of the unique features of the ATK designs is there Cam release system, this clever design utilises a Cam profile pressed against the heel pins by a pre tensioned spring, when a boot steps into the binding or a fall requiring vertical release occurs, the Cam profile provides a precise resistance to the pins. This system allows an accurate, adjustable control of the release tension whilst maintaining an easy step in, solid power transfer whilst skiing and keeps the weight of the binding down.

All of this state of the art design is combined in a binding which as well as being super light, also looks great.

The ATK FR14 are an excellent choice for ski tourers and free tourers wanting powerful ski performance, boot retention, robust and reliable construction and a full set of features from their free touring bindings without sacrificing weight.
