ATK Kuluar 9 LT

This winter ATK offer no less than 21 alpine touring bindings, with bindings designed for every type of alpine touring. Whatever your specific requirements, ATK is sure to have a binding that corresponds to your "tick list", whether you are a skimo competitor, weight-conscious efficient tourer or free-rando skier, not forgetting the new binding for kids.

A new binding for 2022, the Kuluar bridges the gap between the excellent Trofeo and Crest bindings and is available in two versions, the Kuluar LT without brakes and the Kuluar Brake. We stock the Kuluar LT which to us seems the most coherent choice, brakes being available as optional extras. ATK produce two versions of the Kuluar LT. The Kuluar 9 LT has a "soft" vertical release and an adjustable lateral release range 4-9 DIN, while for heavier and stronger skiers the Kuluar 12 LT has a "hard" vertical release while lateral release is 6-12 DIN.

For a couple of seasons we have thought that what was missing from the ATK line was a Crest without brakes, and in some ways the Kuluar 9 LT fills this niche. The Kuluar 9 LT shares the same minimalist toepiece and heel unit as the Trofeo, but with the heel unit mounted on the heel baseplate of the Crest bindings, with an additional cover replacing the ski brakes. The Kuluar 9 LT offers the same performance as the Trofeo plus the ease of 20 mm boot length adjustment of the Crest, easier than the adjustment of the R01 baseplate used on the Trofeo Plus. Weighing only 200 g per ski, the Kuluar 9 LT fills that niche between the Trofeo Plus (145 g), Haute Route (165 g) and the RT 8/10 (260 g) and Crest 8/10 (280 g) bindings.
Like the Trofeo bindings, the Kuluar 9 LT does not have the Elastic Response System in the heel unit which helps compensate for the ski flex and prevent ski compression affecting boot release.
Supplied complete with ATK's excellent Kevlar Core leash, the Kuluar 9 LT will appeal to gram counting skiers looking for the efficiency of the Trofeo bindings plus the convenience of easy boot length adjustment.

ATK Kuluar 9 LT Features:

EES Easy Entry System: Toepiece design gives easy and confident step in action with all tech boots, even when boot soles are worn.
Monolink Technology 1.0: Only one of the toe piece arms has springs, and this design provides a higher clamping pressure on the boot while also saving weight.
