C-Riader 12 fills in the gap between Raider 12 and Crest 10, both in terms of performance and market placement. Thanks to the innovative “carbon” toe piece it sets a new standard in weight (305g), great performance (close to the R12) completing ATK Bindings’ offer for the free touring segment. Same heel part presented by Raider 12 (5-12 release): the vertical release is performed by the CAM RELEASE SYSTEM® which provides an incredible boot retention, a soft heel step-in and the most stable downhill performances on the market. In the event of a big compression the ELASTIC RESPONSE SYSTEM® allows a natural flex of the ski thanks to an elastic travel (12 mm). The Rear Ski Brake provides a great braking action with an astonishing ease of use and lightness. The MAGNET HEEL FLAP SYSTEM® provides a coverage of the different ascent degrees thanks to its 5 walking modes. The fully-adjustable Freeraide Spacer (cod: AL09) is available as an optional.
“Carbon” toe piece
The toe piece, made out with 30% carbon reinforced composite, represents a considerable novelty for ATK Bindings: the material performance (weight/stiffness ratio) and the innovative structural design, results in a weight reduction (compared to the Raider 12 toe piece), boosting performances and stability at their maximum (compared to the speed touring toe pieces range, still considering an additional 10gr weight more or less).
