22 Designs is based in Driggs, Idaho and takes it's name from Wyoming Highway 22, which goes over the nearby Teton Pass. Started in 2004 by Chris valiante and Colin Pringle, 22 Designs inherited the famous HammerHead bindings from Rainey Designs which they continued to produce until 2013. In the meantime 22 Designs developed the 75 mm touring binding the Axl that hit the market in 2009, and the resort version the Vice, in 2012. These bindings share many of the characteristics of the HammerHead with twin springs underfoot and adjustable activity thanks to a pin underfoot with a choice of slots.
In 2016 22 Designs started making bindings with the NTN standard with the introduction of the Outlaw bindings (the Outlaw X is the latest version). These solid bindings are very popular combining as they do the precise control of the original Rottefella NTN bindings plus a longer more progressive flex and a walk mode with more articulation for efficient climbing. The Outlaw X is particularly popular with bigger stronger skiers wanting a bombproof binding.
For 2019 22 Designs are working on the Lynx, a 2-PIN NTN binding that should be in big demand amongst telemark tourers.
22 Designs have injected fresh blood into the freeheel ski industry and is one of the leading telemark binding manufacturers.
