On the very high end of Salomon’s bindings, there is the Quantum.
Unlike most stiff bindings, they are light and responsive, but still comfortable. They have the ShadowFit baseplate whic has something called the Kevlar QuickWire heelcup. Unlike standard bindings, that have a stiff heelcup, this is flexible and fits to your boot as you tighten your straps.
To go along with the rest of the high end materials, it has an all-carbon Quantum highback.
These bindings are for someone who needs to get the most from their bindings, has a high budget and is planning on ripping big mountain lines.
