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