Slalom hardshell bindings seem to be quite popular, but in the UK they (and any binding) are horrendously expensive (double your dollar figure and essentially that's what you pay in the UK after import takes and shipping etc).
So as I'm handing with making things, I was thinking of modding some snow ski / telemark kit. How do the reflex style binding actually release? It looks like you lock in at the front toe hoop and the rear section clips in, does this have a spring system in it to allow OTF and lateral releases? It looks like it just locks down and that's that so how does it release?.
