The innovative Kingpin has earned its stripes as the performance standard in PinTech AT binding technology. With DIN/ISO 13992:2007 certification from Germanys prestigious TUV testing organization, the Kingpin’s unique toe and heel pieces are the culmination of years of R&D testing. Ease of use, DIN/ISO certified release function, and best of all, unbeatable power transmission while on the descent mean that you’ve never had a day in the backcountry like the ones you’ll have on the Kingpin.
New for 22/23 is the introduction of the ISI toe, which stands for 'Intuitive Step In' in all the Alpinist and Kingpin models. A wider platform allows for greater contact area when stepping in. Less force is required to lock into the toe as well. And, now there's a rubber stop pad to aid in aligning and stopping your boot in the optimal spot.
