Starting with the 22/23 season we enhanced several of our binding and crampon components using a manufacturing technique called overmolding. By injection molding a proprietary thermoplastic blend over and through existing aluminum or steel parts, several key areas of friction and wear are eliminated.
Our team created their own custom thermoplastic blend specific to the overmold process that includes additives to make it extremely cold tolerant, durable, and abrasion-resistant.
Less Friction = Smooth Touring (ST)
Wherever you see an ST next to a product, this signifies that part or product uses the overmold process.
