Essay

Innovative features are that the rotation point has been improved, the size of shoe can be easily adjusted, and the binding is user-friendly in the highest degree. The Virtual Rotation System makes the sequence of movement ergonomically rounded, coming very close to normal walking: cross-country ski touring becomes a pleasant experience. At the same time the heel and shin are relieved of strain in a way that can really be felt. Security and confidence at an Alpine height.

Comments by the nominators:
A technical innovation that has been realised in a design of the highest quality. The scope of the design includes the complete presentation of the product on the market. The binding stands for technology, dynamism and power. It gives the user security and confidence.
