The Salomon Defender delivers on the freeride front. One of the stiffest bindings in the Salomon Range, the Defender is backed by team riders and living legends Josh Dirksen and Wolle Nyvelt, who are both renowned for their backcountry style and expertise. Salomons signature ShadowFit technology is amazing for fit, comfort and energy transmission, placing kevlar quickwire around the flexible heelcup for an enhanced natural fit that doesn't sacrifice an ounce of strength and support. Locked Up toe straps and 3D ankle straps add cushy comfort while locking you down tight, and the new MP ratchet system helps you tighten your bindings easier than ever.
