The lightest alternative to a pin binding.

Every trail under control – with ease and energy – and with the comfort and safety of an Alpine binding.

The Scout 11 is almost as light as the heaviest pin binding. In addition to excellent all-mountain performance, it offers the easy handling of an alpine binding. The Compact Module is also the focal point for all other functions, from walk mode comfort to ease of use and safety, the excellent downhill qualities, and not least the reason for the light weight of this bar design. The activating crampon is another sophisticated technical feature of this system.

Ninety-nine percent of the components are made in Switzerland and assembled into high-quality products in Reichenbach.

Axion Crampons Ski brake Safety leash
Activating crampons

With the Axion crampons, the days of precarious mounting manoeuvers in difficult terrain are a thing of the past. Since the Axion is fastened to the binding before the tour starts it is ready to be used at any time. It can conveniently be activated with a ski pole, as needed, without having to step out of the binding and therefore ensures solid support. It is just as easy to deactivate when it is no longer required. The innovative, effective metal part with teeth offers far more support, comfort and safety than conventional crampons.

Available options:86/110

The ski brake has been developed especially for the Safety Alubar System. It is an important part of the equipment, which is geared towards the greatest possible safety.
