The S/Lab Shift is one of the most anticipated products new for 2019. Matt thinks it lives up to the hype.
“Made of carbon-infused plastic, aluminum, and steel, the Shift comes in at about 1720 grams per pair. In the world of alpine touring bindings, it weighs 200 grams more than the Marker Kingpin, 400 more than the Fritschi Tecton 12, and roughly 500 grams more than the Dynafit Radical FT 2.0 and new Rotation 10. Compared to frame alpine touring bindings, however, the Shift beats popular models: It’s 500 grams lighter than the Marker F12 Tour and around 700 lighter than the Tyrolia Adrenalin. It knocks 1,050 grams off the Marker Baron and dusts the Salomon Guardian by 1,200.
