KneeBindings are to bindings
What helmets were to hats
Changing Ski Bindings For Good.
KneeBindings have a 3rd dimension - a patented, PureLateralTM heel release.
It can detect the forces that cause most knee injuries, and release before the injury occurs!
KneeBinding is the only ski binding proven to help protect your knees.
Professional-grade KneeBindings are also the ONLY bindings made in America,
with superior leverage, edge-grip, and retention. We offer industry-leading elasticity,
cantilevered brakes, configurable ramp delta, precision toe height, the most stable boot platform,
the widest mounting platform, and a full floating mount system for "flat" skis.
It's no accident that KneeBindings have won every major on-snow performance award.
Insist on KneeBindings.
World-class convenience, performance, and retention.
Dramatically fewer serious injuries.
Each year, 70,000 skiers injure an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) on all other alpine bindings,
making it the worst medical epidemic in the history of skiing. Most require surgery (often more than one),
lost work, one or more lost seasons, and months of painful physical therapy.
Over 20% of the injured never ski again.
All alpine bindings release up at the heel and sideways at the toe.
These ordinary mechanisms are effective at reducing broken legs, but none helps protect against knee injuries.
(Not "diagonal" bindings, not "turntable" bindings, not even bindings with so-called "upward toe releases.")
Three-fourths (3/4) of all skiing ACL injuries are rear-weighted:
the skier starts to fall backwards, bends hips and knees, and catches an inside edge.
The leg cannot rotate that way, and the knee is damaged.
But no skier has ever reported this type of ACL injury on KneeBindings.
