The Atomic NEOX binding was specially designed to maintain correct release values while allowing the ski to perform as it was intended.
Atomic bindings are state of the art. That's why the same Full Flex mechanism that's in NEOX has dominated World Cup racing for the last decade.
These bindings are a full pound lighter than the original NEOX that came out three years ago.
NEOX delivers unprecedented performance and risk reduction. Twin Full Flex (1) allows a round ski arc for unparalleled edge contact and bump absorption. A twin-pivot toe with quad rollers and a floating AFD (2) ensure a broad elastic zone and frictionless re-centering and release. And an automatic toe height mechanism and backward release feature (3) add extra insurance. NEOX even uses a dual-pivot metal heel (4) to ensure durability and a confidence-inspiring step-in "snap."
The final step of the production process individually calibrates every binding and laser prints release values (5). When NEOX is set on eight, you know you're getting an eight.
