While a few of our old-school testers found the unchanged 01 too powerful, our hard-chargers once again loved it. Because of its underfoot cartridge-and-cable routing and lots of heel retention, every ounce of your energy gets transmitted to the ski. Three different cartridge offerings allow you to change the stiffness. Smart design: Push a button and the 01 turns into a free-pivot binding for touring. 3.5 lbs; bdel.com
