With 34% knee injuries sadly top the ranking of the most common ski injuries. They are mainly caused by backward twisting falls. Conventional bindings of all major suppliers are designed to reduce the risk of injuries to the lower leg below the knee, but they are not intended for preventing injuries to the knee.

 

Thanks to the innovative FULL HEEL RELEASE function, the new PROTECTOR binding can reduce ACL strain by more than 50%*. This can significantly reduce or mitigate the risk of knee injuries and injuries below the knee.

The new PROTECTOR binding thus offers you unprecedented safety and once again proves that you can better even the best.

BACKWARD TWISTING FALLS

The most common injuries in recreational skiing are knee injuries (especially ACL injuries). 75% are mainly caused by backward twisting falls.

PROTECTOR improves this situation !

In backward twisting falls the release values with PROTECTOR can be more
than 50% lower compared to a conventional binding.

Thanks to the reduced release values in the event of a backward twisting fall, the forces on the tibia and the ACL are reduced by more than 50 %. This decrease will finally lead to a significant reduction and mitigation of knee injuries and assures safer skiing.

These results are officially confirmed by independent studies completed at the University of Innsbruck.

How does it work

1. Low, short-term forces are absorbed by PROTECTOR's 7 mm of bilateral travel. Benefit: This elasticity avoids pre-releases.

 

2. Higher forces that exceed the release setting will move the heel the full 7 mm at which point PROTECTOR rotates open by 30° to release the ski boot.

PERFORMANCE
SAME COMFORT
MAXIMUM SAFETY.

LET US EXPLAIN

The ASTM testing machine is used to simulate various falls and measure the corresponding forces on the leg. In this clip you see the PROTECTOR being run through two of these tests, and how its test results compare to those of a conventional binding.
