There's a new sheriff in town, and his name is the Atomic Warden 13 MNC Ski Binding. Unlike previous officers of on mountain law, the Warden's a forgiving type, with a DIN that ranges from 5 13 and progressive transfer pads for a smoother, damper ride with less vibration. Most importantly, though, the Warden's what Atomic calls Multi Norm Compatible MNC, meaning that they'll work with traditional alpine, rockered touring, and WTR soles, so you don't need a quiver of boots to fit your quiver of skis. Don't equate this flexibility with wimpiness, because the Warden's still plenty powerful, with a precise and reliable U Power toe piece, oversized platform designed for wider skis, and a heel flex interface that lets the ski flex more naturally. Giddy up.
