It doesn't look like there would be as good energy transfer between the boot and the binding since the boot is raised a little off the binding and sitting on the locking mechanism. Maybe if you could reduce the size of the locking mechanism, or find a way to recess it into the base plate? That way the boot has full contact with the footbed? Looks like you are working hard I hope you find some success!

The thing that sticks out most to me is the method to release the boot. Raise your heel while pushing down on your toes...

Isn't that how you make a toeside turn?!?

edit: Here's the quote from the site: "Angle of attachment simulates cycling's clip-in pedals. Release is activated by the straight up pull of rear heel countered by the weight on the opposing side."

These bindings are death traps. Do people even ride step in bindings? I hate to break it to you op but these are not kickass, they are pretty stupid and look poorly made. I want these to get made so I can steal a pair and then shit on it.

How are you supposed to be able to walk around in those boots, with a big aluminum(?) block under the middle of the boot?

That's the first thing I thought of when I saw the video.

The other problem I see is snow getting packed in the fastener. I wonder how much 'on the snow' testing this guy has done.

I don't see this thing taking off.
