that's pretty much what I have now with my freeride and they have served me well. I was just wondering if the new techs like the kingpins are able to do the same. I'm not a groomer kind of guy, even inbound I avoid them if possible. When my kids are racing I volunteer anyway and don't ski much those days. I guess the question should of been, are the techs better now for inbound skiing or forget it they suck and you'll hate them.
I assume you alredy have boots with tech fittings?
Duno what you need to do with the racing program but IME a step in AT binding like the fritschi freerides or any of the true stepin are OK for course work but Tech bindings are NOT because ice [HTML_REMOVED] smoo gets frozen into the pin holes or under the springs in the toe, so unless you cycle the toe pieces to clear the ice every single time before you step in your ski will fall off which is a real pain if you are working on skis often without poles and carrying something
