ATK Crest 8 Purple


With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery & Collection Dates

Estimated Delivery & Collection Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery & Collection Dates provided on product pages.

We estimate this will be ready for despatch to you or collection via Click & Collect on Undetermined

Hassle free returns

We know that you can't always get it right first time especially when buying footwear online so we have a relaxed return policy.

We need to be able to sell any items returned as new so please make sure that any items returned are unused and clean with all the original packaging intact.

We offer a 21 day returns period but don't worry if you run over this we just ask that any items coming back are sent back sooner rather than later as we need to get them listed for sale again.

We do not pay any return postage costs so you will need to cover the cost of returns, the post office is usually the best service for sending small to medium parcels back but there are many parcel brokers that will work too.

The Royal Mail Click & Drop service is a fast and good value way to return most items if you have access to a printer at home. This service is not operated by us.

Once we have the item back we will check it and exchange the size or process the refund as fast as we can.

If you think there is a manufacturing issue with a product bought from us then please email us with a description and photos of any issue and the proof of purchase.

For UK orders we will refund the original outward postage at our basic postage cost typically around £8 or if we are exchanging the size we normally send this out at no extra cost (highlands & Islands may be an exception to this)

We can't refund the outward shipping cost for international returns

Any questions please get in touch.

ATK are an Italian Ski Touring Binding brand with some fantastic revolutionary lightweight binding designs.

The Crest 8 is the same design as the Crest 10 but with a lower release setting range. Starting at 3 the crest 8 offers safer release settings for light skiers or anyone needing to use a release setting below 5.

The ATK Crest 8 brings many of the key features of the Raider bindings at a lower weight and excellent price point. They have all of the features you would expect from a fully fledged ski touring binding, ski brakes, climbing positions, fully adjustable safety releases and ski crampon slots. The amazing thing is that all of these features come packaged in an unbelievable 0.56Kg per pair!

Constructed predominantly from Metal (Alu 7075) the ATK Crest 8 feel reassuringly solid and robust whilst still coming in feather light.

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.

The Crest 8 feature another clever patented design from ATK in the form of their MONOLINK 1.0 Technology. By using an aeronautical steel alloy with a high elastic modulus, they have managed to remove half of the toe piece springs and fix the left arm. This reduces the weight by a small amount but importantly it increases the stiffness of the toe piece whilst skiing giving improved ski performance.

Also packed into the Crest 8 is the Elastic Response System which gives a further 6mm of rearward heel elasticity to allow a natural ski flex and to improve safety of release in a big compression.

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

The ATK Crest 8 are an excellent choice for lighter ski tourers wanting lower safety release settings whilst keepig solid ski performance, robust and reliable construction and a full set of features from their touring bindings at the lowest possible weight.
