High Performance Brakeless Touring Binding

You asked for it and we answered. Enter a sleek, lighter, brakeless version of the ION 12, designed for gram counters, minimalists, and ski mountaineers. The new ION LT 12 is the highest performance binding in its category, weighing in at only 456 g (1 lb) per binding, but still boasting the ION's renowned ski performance and feature set. To shave the weight we minimized the boot stop and heel rest, and removal of the brakes. Instead the ION LT 12 comes with a set of 2 coiled cable leashes that are easy to install and use with any ski boot.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Hello! Can you buy brakes and mount them on the G3 ion LT??


    Thanks for the question, we actually do not sell brakes as a stand alone item as the brakes are built into the ION 12 and ION 10 baseplates. 

  • Hi. Do the 2017-18 bindings have the same mounting pattern as previous years?


    Yes they do! We have not changed the ION mounting pattern. 

  • Where do you recommend attaching the loops that come with the leashes on the boots? Is there a spot that works better than others?

    All boots are different and have different attachemtn points for the leash. We recommend attaching the leash where it will not interfere with the performance of the boot but also keep the leash attached to your boot when needed. Using a key ring attached to one of the buckles is usually a popular spot.  Cheers

  • Is it possible to replace an ION LT rear baseplate with an ION 12 rear baseplate w/ brakes?

    Although the heel turrets are removeable and serviceable on all ION bindings, the baseplate assemblies are not availble separately. 
    Thank you for your inquiry.
