BEST FOR: Versatility.

THE TEST: The Onyx has matured into a dependable tech binding. We like that the brake remains engaged, even in tour mode, until the skier makes the first stride, thus saving the ski from unmanned adventures down the hill. Also smart: aftermarket plates ($77) let you use the same bindings on all your skis. 3.6 lbs.

THE VERDICT: Most improved binding of the year.


POWER: 3.5
