You've probably heard of it .. But the shift linkage is quite a quite ingenious alternative to the "traditional" touring / tech bindings. It has two modes that allow it acts as both alpine binding, with traditional - and backsheet. But it can be opened up and used as tech binding to toure with, with 2 clicks.
It gives you opportunities to charge without concern on the downhill, and easily put the skins of skis go up and take another turn. Super easy to operate and use. It weighs only 865G per. PCS. so it is the perfect compromise between a thoroughbred tech bonding and an alpine binding. The bond has three climbing modes, making it easy to move even the steepest slopes.
Goes really well with Solomon QST series, or any other freeride ski, you should go with. If you find yourself on a trip where you can not toure? No problem. Shift works just fine as alpine binding. You have security from the solid piece and back piece, like a traditional downhill binding has.
