Changing Ski Bindings For Good.
KneeBindings have a 3rd dimension - a calibrated, PureLateralTM heel release that can
detect the forces that cause most knee injuries on skis, and release directly sideways before the injury occurs!
It's the only proven way to mitigate knee injuries on skis, and only KneeBinding has it.
As for performance, there are no compromises. KneeBindings are professional-grade bindings, made in America,
with superior leverage, edge-grip, and retention. KneeBindings offer industry-leading elasticity,
cantilevered brakes, configurable ramp delta, precision toe height, the most stable boot platform,
the widest mounting platform, and the ONLY floating mount system for "flat" skis.
It's no accident that we've won every major on-snow performance award.
Insist on high-performance KneeBindings - for world-class convenience, performance, and retention,
AND dramatically fewer serious injuries.
Each year, 70,000 skiers injure an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) on all other alpine bindings,
making it skiing's worst medical epidemic in history. Most require major surgery,
often an additional surgury, lost work, one or more lost seasons, and months of painful physical therapy.
Over 20% of the injured never ski again.
All ordinary bindings release up at the heel and sideways at the toe.
These two mechanisms are effective at preventing broken legs, but none helps protect against knee injuries.
(Not "diagonal" bindings, not "turntable" bindings, not even bindings with "upward toe releases.")
Three-fourths (3/4) of all skiing ACL injuries are rear-weighted:
the skier starts to fall backwards, bends hips and knees, and catches an inside edge.
The leg cannot rotate that way, and the knee takes the hit.
But no skier has ever reported this type of injury on KneeBindings.
