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 DIN 3-8 release makes the Pure 8 Junior ideal for lighter skiers – including kids!!

The Pure 8 Junior is identical to the Pure 8 other than a longer adjustment range of 50mm versus the 20mm for the Pure 8. The longer range comes at a weight penalty of a mere 14 grams! For growing kids it is a great way to go. Mount them towards the smaller end and then you will have room for 4 or 5 boot sizes of growth!

  • The new Pure 8 is basically a simplified, lighter and lower cost version of the Core 12. Key differences include a DIN range of 3-8 versus 5-12, one heel flap for 3 climbing positions instead of the 5 positions on the Core 12, and a narrower and lighter heel adjustment plate. Just 295 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 295 grams with brakes (245 grams with brakes removed, 237 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 brake arms are extra long with wide hooks to stop your skis quickly when they go airborne without you. 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. Psych yourself up to rip the biggest, baddest, remotest lines you can find with the Hagan Pure 8 binding.

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

  • 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: 50mm for the Pure, 30mm for the Core.
    • Release Range: Pure 8 is DIN 3-8, Core 12 is DIN 5-12.

    Pure 8 Features

    HEEL FLAP WITH RISER: intuitive heel flap system which provides 3 different walking modes: FLAT MODE, + 36 mm and +50 mm .
    CAM HEEL RELEASE SYSTEM ® (Adjustable Release 3-8): a cam system which drives the Vertical release (My) of the binding in case of a fall. The cam system is extremely precise and reliable, and at the same time very light and small.
    ROTATIONAL SYSTEM (Adjustable Release 3-8): this patented system provides the side release (Mz) adjustment.

    INTEGRATED CRAMPON HOOKS ®: the included and removable crampon hooks integrate into the base of the toe piece for extreme rigidity and lightness!!
