Plum changed the name of the 16-17 Feyan to Eterlou and added injection moulded highbacks. This makes the binding a bit mor comfortable but at the same time you get a little less power transmission due to less stiffness.
What did we like while testing the Plum Eterlou?
- The new buckles are good and doesn´t slip
- The U-Profile which encloses the axis - gives good stability and edge pressure while ascending
- The fixation of the little safety hook at the lever - easy handling while closing your binding
- The enclosing highbacks which give aditional stability and edgehold at challenging traverses
- The Ski-Mode works amazing
- The Design and super high quality processing
- Made in Chez Nous
What we didn't like?
- The mounting of the binding, luckily it only has to be done once

Plum changed the name of the 16-17 Feyan to Eterlou and added injection moulded highbacks. This makes the binding a bit mor comfortable but at the same time you get a little less power transmission due to less stiffness. The binding offers a real comfort during the ascent through the slightly negative angle of the spoiler that provides better leg lengthening. At the top, a quick and easy manipulation of a few seconds, enough to assemble the two skis together. For the descent it is true snowboard bindings that you find at your feet. 3 positions spoiler are possible during your ride and a wide heel-cup setting ensures a perfect fit to your boots. Available in sizes S / M and M / L.
