    These Diamir Titanal old style frame bindings with brakes might just be the thing if you’re wanting a cheap intro. to the back country. Brake size 100mm. Fritschi Freerides.

    No need for tech. boots, but an old style BC boot will do - (I have some old 26.5 Scarpa Titans which I’m happy to pass on for about $90). NB: this won’t fit with a telemark boot.

    They’re in very good condition and are easily mounted.

    I’ve also got some matching ski crampons which pair with these which I’ll chuck in for an additional $25.(market price $90)

    Asking price $65. Pick up Glen Iris Melbourne, or happy to drop them off at Falls creek/ Hotham. Or post at your expense (probably around $20 or so).

    Price drop to $85 - rather see these used than wasted.

    Surprised. T2 telemark books fit AT frame bindings?
    No way, due to duckbill shape being comparitively square compared to AT or downhill boots.

    Sorry, my bad - Not telemark boots - tele boots DEFINITELY won’t fit these bindings - it fits Scarpa backcountry boots - old style pre-tech boots.

    I was confusing the scarpa Titans with the T2s. Will correct original post thx @seak

    Not familiar with the gear Do they need to be used with BC boots or are they OK with ordinary Alpine ski boots?
    Would you take these ski mountaineering yourself?
    Might be nice to have another option for Alaska

    Do not need tech. boots, will fit SOME (most) Alpine boots. Won’t fit tele boots.

    However, an Alpine boot which doesn’t have dual mode (ski/walk) will be very uncomfortable to tour in as you don’t have ankle flex.

    I have toured extensively with frame bindings, but to be honest tech. bindings and boots are so much lighter.

    https://www.backcountry.com/explore/all-about-at-bindings:

    “Despite their drawbacks, frame AT bindings are an excellent choice for those who are just getting into alpine touring, will be spending considerable time skiing on-piste on the same setup, or those who intend on using their current alpine ski boots with the bindings. Additionally, frame AT bindings are very attractive to skiers who are willing to climb with a little extra weight to avoid losing downhill performance and the safety of a predictable ski release, especially if the plan is to tour into a zone with the intention of hitting big backcountry jumps.”

    I’ve used these older style frame bindings along with regular kids skis (skins, or adapted to a patterned base) to get my kids into the side country, which is their current main application i.m.o.

    Frame bindings have a more predictable and ‘safer’ DIN release set-up, though tech. bindings have made great strides in this in recent years.

    I'm probably better off staying with 3pin bindings then in the short term, not having the $800- needed for the required boots

    Hi Chaeron,

    I'm interested! Will they work with Lowa Strucktura GTX AT boots? I'm not very familiar with AT kit yet and only just scored the boots secondhand.
