For those of you who don't need a tour mode...

One of the best in-bounds 75mm bindings is back!

Far less perfect than Zim.

Those look great. Definitely would be a great park or in-bounds ripper binding. I've never actually seen a pair in person, even the originals.

I was never a huge Bishop fan but... when we used to have our slopestyle championships there were a number of hot shit skiers (Mooner for one) that skied Bishops. They swore (and won) by those bindings.

Good for Bishop, trying to make a comeback. heavy and expensive, but definitely more power transfer than any other tele binding. I took a couple of runs on Mooner's back in the day, but they gave me wicked toe pinch. They were set up super active.
