Pre-order by September 30th and save $75 with the discount code Pure8PreOrder. Pre-orders will be the first shipped when new Pure 8 bindings arrive this fall – expected ~ mid-October.

The lightest high-performance alpine touring binding.

The low 3-8 release range makes the Pure 8 ideal for lighter skiers. 

For rapidly growing kids, consider the Pure 8 Junior. The longer 50mm adjustment plate adds just 14 grams, while allowing room for 4 or 5 boot sizes of growth!

The revolutionary Pure 8 binding outperforms standard tech bindings for a better skiing, more efficient, and hassle-free backcountry experience. The Pure 8, identical to the Pure 10 save the lower release range and color, combines several ingenuous performance innovations:

  • extremely solid boot/ski connection
  • no torsional movement
  • 20mm length adjustment
  • Elastic Response System
  • precise release and great descending feel

The heel pivots rotationally to provide consistent release and retention. The patented CAM heel system adjusts to impact forces, providing far better control and skiing precision than simple “U Forks.”

  • Just 280 grams including length adjustment, brakes and included crampon mounts. (Competitors touting low weight or price include neither brakes or crampon mounts.) The Pure 8 binding combined with our Pure and Core series skis provides an outstanding touring package with extreme value. The Pure 8 is the perfect binding for the latest generation of ski tourers.

    Touring bindings spend the majority of their time going up, and the Pure 8's refined heel climbing aid is easily flippable by hand for three climbing positions. One climbing position can be selected without any need to twist the heel piece, making for far safer adjustments in precarious situations.

    At only 280 grams with brakes, 230 grams with brakes removed, just 222 grams without brakes and crampon mounts, the Pure 8 is the lightest high-performance all-mountain touring binding!


    The Pure 8 features easy toe entry and quick and secure clamping that is far superior to standard tech bindings. The toe is designed for much easier step-in, even with older and worn boots. The heel piece can be turned in any direction.


    The elastic response system in the heel ensures a perfect flex of the ski during compression and excellent skiing performance. 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 when they go airborne without you.


    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). Crampon hooks for our matching crampons allow stress-free ascents up bulletproof snow or in no-fall zones. All adjustments on the binding can be made with a standard Phillips screwdriver, so you can leave a few extra tools out of your pack.


    The HAGAN Pure 8 perfectly embodies Hagan's prime values: durability, performance, ease of use and value

    • REVOLUTIONARY SKI-BRAKE: incredibly light and easy to operate; two positions (retracted for uphill and released for downhill) via pushing a catch lever. See the short videos for brake operation.
    • ELASTIC RESPONSE SYSTEM: an elastic sliding system in the heel allows unrestrained flex of the ski during compression and excellent skiing performance
    • SKI-BRAKE ELASTIC SLIDE: integrated in the ski-brake pad to keep the lateral release value of the binding fixed
    • CAM RELEASE SYSTEM: stabilizes the heel pins and provides the typical torsional stiffness of the ATK® bindings
    • RELEASE VALUES: fully adjustable VERTICAL (My) and LATERAL (Mz) release systems (3-8)
    • HEEL FLAP WITH RAISER: provides 3 different walking modes: FLAT MODE, +36 mm and +50 mm

  • Pure 8 and Core 12 Differences

    • Brakes: toe mounted brakes on the Core, heel mounted on the Pure. The toe pieces are similar other than the brakes.
    • Risers: Two magnetic flaps on the Core 12 provide 5 climbing positions, a single flap on the Pure 8 provides 3.
    • Length Adjustment: 20mm for the Pure, 30mm for the Core.

    ROTATIONAL SYSTEM (Adjustable Release 3-8): this patented system provides the side release (Mz) adjustment.
    20 mm ADJUSTMENT PLATE: integrated in the heel part enables fast adjustment in case of boot substitution (up to 2 full sizes).
