OVERVIEW

The X2 Switchback sums up 35 years of telemark binding innovation and evolution from Voilé. Voile abandons the of the use of flexible (and breakable) cables, and opts for their own tenet of rigid coiled springs, steel rods and spring-loaded cartridges have more than proven themselves over time.

In 2007, they took a cue from the randonnée world and introduced the now-legendary, Voilé Switchback, a telemark binding with a foolproof, free-pivot option that greatly facilitates climbing. (And does so with the simple flick of a ski pole.)

Built on the success of the Switchback, the X2 is a beefier, more-active, binding—but still an uphill wonder.

Optimized for maximum power transfer, the X2 is augmented with stiffer cartridges, a much-longer toe plate and a boot pivot point relocated 26mm to the rear. The result is a powerful binding with superb downhill performance and the added efficiency of much-easier uphill travel. With regard to the latter, the X2 and Switchback, as well as Voile 3-Pin Hardware, all feature dual-height climbing elevators.

When you reach the top, just “switch back” to the X2’s downhill mode
 

Not compatible with the Voilé Release Kit.
