This Gear Is A Staff Favorite:

Powder7 Staff Pick Alex
By: Alex
After trying several other tech and hybrid bindings, I've happily settled on the ATK Raider as my favorite. You can't beat the weight and ease of use. The brake locking system works independently of the heel tower, so you can leave the brakes locked up and out of sight until you need them. The heel tower is particularly easy to rotate, making transitioning while still clipped in a breeze. And the downhill? Despite being so minimal, the Raider stays quick and responsive. I've skied it with and without the Freeride Spacer, and I'd definitely recommend skiing with the spacer (it just gives you a better downhill ride).

Our Take:

Shrouded in mystery for years, and known by many aliases, the ATK Raider 12 binding is now here in its original form: ATK. ATK is the binding company everyone wishes they were, using full metal constructions, and making insanely light high-performing ski bindings. At Powder7 we went directly to the source for the R12, in order to get the best and the purest. The Raider 12 brings in a new era in ski binding technology. Weighing in at a scant 350 grams per binding, yet still featuring a fully adjustable twist and vertical release in the heel, the R12 redefines what a lightweight tech binding can be. Additionally, it comes with 5 different heel riser heights, so you'll adapt to any skin track you encounter. Blow away your now heavy tech binding setup, and your friends on the skin track with the Raider 12.

Don't forget to pair your Raider 12 with the Freeride Spacer for the maximum in performance and power-transfer

ATK Raider 12 FAQ:

Q: Is it possible to buy the atk raider without brakes? From Johnny - January 2021

A: We only sell the ATK Raider 12 with brakes. There may be a way to remove the brake, but I've not explored that option.

By Stuart

Q: Can this act as a hybrid? Looking for a Hybrid that's light weight, ski in/outbounds and backcountry tours. From Ozzy - February 2022

A: Thanks for reaching out! This binding is a tech binding designed for back country skiing only. It does not have any elastic travel in the toes, increasing the risk of injury when it is skied hard inbounds. Let us know how we can help!
