The Pure 10 is made for HAGAN in partnership with ATK in Italy. HAGAN partnered with ATK, well respected for quality, craftsmanship and functionality, to bring what we feel are their best products to North America. The Pure 10 is identical to the ATK Crest 10.
The revolutionary Pure 10 binding outperforms standard U-Spring tech bindings for a better skiing, more efficient, and hassle-free backcountry experience. Now in two colors - Grey/Tungsten or new Black. The Pure 10 combines several ingenuous performance innovations:
Don't need crampon mounts? Save 13 grams and $20. Just write "Remove the crampon mounts" in the notes section at checkout and I will remove the crampon mounts and refund you $20.
The 280 gram Pure 10 – including length adjustment, brakes and crampon mounts – is very light, less than half the weight of alternatives. Other bindings touting low weight or price include neither brakes or crampon mounts. The Pure 10 weighs just 230 grams with brakes removed, 222 grams without brakes and crampon mounts. The Pure 10 is the lightest high-performance all-mountain touring binding!
The patented CAM heel system adjusts to impact forces, providing far better control, skiing precision and release than simple U Forks. The elastic response system in the heel ensures perfect flex of the ski during compression and excellent skiing performance. The heel piece can be turned in any direction. Step in is very easy.
The Pure 10 has three climbing positions. One climbing position can be selected without any need to twist the heel piece.
Easy toe entry and quick and secure clamping is superior to standard tech bindings. The toe is designed for much easier step-in, even with older and worn boots.
The brake is equipped with an ELASTIC SLIDE on the pad in contact with the boot that keeps the lateral release value of the binding fixed. The brake arms are extra long with wide hooks to stop your skis quickly. Matching crampons easily slide into the crampon hooks when needed. All adjustments on the binding can be made with a standard Phillips screwdriver.
A 20 mm ADJUSTMENT PLATE is integrated in the heel part to assure a fast adjustment in case of boot substitution (up to 2 full sizes).
The Pure 10 is a simplified, lighter and lower cost version of the Core 12 Pro. It perfectly embodies Hagan's prime values: durability, performance, ease of use and value. The Pure 10 binding combined with our Pure and Core series skis provides an outstanding touring package with extreme value.
Note: The "no brakes" version simply has the brakes removed. There isn't a replacement heel plate. Function isn't affected, even in uphill "flat" mode. If you would like to "fill the gap", ATK AL11 ski brake covers are available.
INTEGRATED CRAMPON HOOKS ®: the included and removable crampon hooks integrate into the base of the toe piece for extreme rigidity and lightness!!
MATERIALS: Aluminum alloy, Injection-molded POM thermo-plastic, Stainless steel
