  • The Design and super high quality processing
  • Made in Chez Nous

Description


The Eterlou is a comfortable, solid and precise backcountry binding without being too demanding. With the Injection Molded Highbacks it feels more comfortable on the foot than the high-end model Feyan, both on the ascent and the descent. She is still one of the best performing splitboard bindings, but no longer the top model of Plum. By pulling the board halves together, it creates an optimal connection, torsional stiffness and power transmission. Simplicity, board feel and ascent performance are trademarks of this binding. The "ears" on the highback enclose the shoe well and thus the power can be transferred well during the ascent. 

The conversion from split to ride mode takes place in a few simple steps and in the shortest possible time. Of course also with gloves.
The Highback can be adjusted with a light "Backward-Lean" approx. 8 degrees, for larger steps uphill.

Plum offers the Eterlou in the sizes M (39-42) and L (41-47+), crampons extra.
