Product Description

FREE TOURING WITH POWER AND SAFETY

ALPINE PERFORMANCE IN ALL TERRAIN

The technology mix of the Tecton with pin unit in front, heel jaws and absolute power trans-mission for a perfect ride. The low weight, the easy step-in, the same level of safety as alpine bindings, as well as the practical handling make every tour a memorable experience.

Swiss made
All parts are manufactured in Switzerland and assembled into high-quality products in Reichenbach. After the assembly, every binding undergoes a meticulous quality control process, including a func-tional test.

This is how much power, safety and comfort weigh in free touring.

The right mix of light high-tech synthetics and high-quality metal alloys provides superior stability at a low weight.

Design

The Tecton 12 uses the same toe piece as the new Vipec Evo (review coming soon), which features 13 mm of lateral elastic travel and adjustable toe pins for different boot widths.

Fritschi Tecton 12 — Toe

This Evo toe piece has been updated from last year’s Vipec TUV (“Vipec “Black”) so that stepping in is easier, and Fritschi has added a small bumper that releases the toe in the event of an ‘over-the-handlebars’ fall. The lateral release in the toe already sets the Tecton apart from most other tech bindings, and we talk more about its potential safety benefits in the next section.

But then there’s also the Tecton’s heel…

The Tecton 12 heel piece shares many similarities with the Kingpin. It moves forward and back on the ski to switch from walk mode to ski mode; it has two climbing risers mounted to the front of the heel lever; and it has a plastic, alpine-style step-in mechanism (rather than metal pins).

Like the Kingpin, the Tecton heel piece holds the boot directly to a platform on the base of the binding, which means that there is a direct connection between the boot and ski rather than a floating pin interface, and the Tecton’s heel offers 9 mm of vertical elasticity.

The Tecton 12 also features what Fritschi is calling “Power Rails”. These are basically protrusions of plastic that fit into the pin channels cut in the heels of tech boots, and they fill the space normally occupied by typical tech binding heel pins.

In theory, these Power Rails should increase lateral responsiveness and eliminate any play between the heel of the boot and the heel piece of the binding.
