- The Design and super high quality processing

What we didn't like?

The Plum Feyan is established as one of the most performance oriented bindings at the market. This year it got a new baseplate which makes it even lighter and stromger. It is effective under all conditions in the mountains tested and developed in the beautiful and tough area of Chamonix. Even Xavier de le Rue is riding a model of this one. It 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.
