Engineered and made in Edwards, Colo., these tele bindings are built to give you Badassery: stick landings, rip groomers, slash deep pow and hit the park. All with a big ol' face grin.
As skis get wider and bigger, it becomes more important to have the control that only a burly plate binding like the Bishop can deliver. With no wimpy plastic parts, the Bishop uses high-grade aluminum and stainless steel so it's durable and strong. There are no welds or rivets to crack. All the moving joints use top-of-the-line composite bearings from Germany.
And they ski great. You can customize the feel by adjusting the position of the main pivot. By doing this you change the timing and amount of force applied to the front of your skis with your rear foot. You can go from a very neutral feel (forward position) to a very active feel (rear position) with one simple adjustment.
The Bishop's toe bail offers big benefits over the traditional fixed toe box design of almost every other tele binding out there. The toe bail does not rely on the traditional pinch or squeeze method required to hold a boot. So there's no performance inconsistency with a toe bail since the boot won't wear down. Toe bails also make for easy entry and exit.
Purchase a Bishop 2nd Ski Kit to easily swap the binding between skis. All it takes is a hex key. The sub plate mount also allows multiple mounting positions — move the binding 1cm forward or back from the original mounting spot with a 5mm hex key.
