LIGHT WEIGHT. HIGH PERFORMANCE.

LIGHT WEIGHT. HIGH PERFORMANCE.

Further refined for this winter, the ION is the highest performing, most user-friendly and reliable touring binding on the market. An easy, confident step-in lets you put your gear in the back of your mind and focus on what really matters: skiing. Forward pressure and optimal energy absorption provide a smooth, reliable ride for charging backcountry lines.

G3 UNIVERSITY | Should I Ski Locked Out?

Your touring binding should do two things: keep you in and let you out. Locking the toe defeats the release mechanism and puts you at risk. So don’t be a hoser, choose a binding that reliably supports ski mode in all conditions. 

DESIGN PROCESS

DESIGN PROCESS

When we started developing the ION the focus was on superior freeride performance in the lightest package we could come up with. We were new players in the alpine touring binding field. There was opportunity to really improve on what was in the market and push the boundaries of what could be done. That is exactly what we did by introducing alpine-inspired forward pressure in the heel, a wide mount, refined toe jaw dynamics, and unique step-in and brake features that would allow the user to forget about the binding and just ski.

IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR WINTER 2017/18

IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR WINTER 2017/18

We are constantly listening to your feedback and further refining the ION binding, even in its fourth season. We gave the ION three important updates for 2017/18 to make it simpler, easier and more reliable. We made the BootStop simpler and lighter with no moving parts. We significantly beefed up the brake spring without adding weight. And most importantly we've redesigned the heel with an Auto-Rotation Lock that completely eliminates the chance of your heel rotating from tour mode to ski mode unintentionally. 

THE AWARDS KEEP COMING

THE AWARDS KEEP COMING

The ION has been refined since its initial launch in 2014. But it is a testament to its great design and superior performance that it continues to get Editor's Choice and other awards from different publications every year.

SKI CRAMPONS FOR FIRM SNOW

SKI CRAMPONS FOR FIRM SNOW

Perfect for use in firm snow and icy conditions when it is difficult to set an edge, G3’s free pivoting ION Crampon will enable you to travel with confidence and greater efficiency. The ION Crampon is easily installed or removed on-the fly with a single hand.

The best thing I can say about the ION is that I don't have much to say. I step in and out day after day and don't have to do a single thing to them for unquestionable reliability and performance. That is exactly what you want from a binding.
