T-Factor Rear Binding
(see sizing chart)
The T-Factor is newest addition to the D3 binding family.
Like the Leverage, the T-Factor delivers comfort and performance on a traditional
EVA-rubber binding platform.
The T-Factor is the result of more than a year of R&D and testing. The
T-Factor features a smooth micro-fiber overlay blended with a rubber insert
creating firm lateral support for superior edge control. “Smooth” was a frequent
comment from the skiers testing the T-Factor. This smooth, forgiving ride is a
result of the soft forward and aft flex the T-Factor delivers. With high-tech
bungee in the upper cuff lace location and a smaller, softer bungee in the
lower lace location the T-Factor is comfortable and a breeze to put on. The
boot comes standard with the new D3
UNI-Plate which accommodates both D3 and HO insert patterns.
One of the biggest differences with the T-Factors is that they are a front-lace
binding. This enhances the binding in two ways: It allows for a much wider
space to open up when putting the binding on and it allows for a more natural,
uninhibited flex to the rear from the apex of the turn into the acceleration
out of the turn. Laces in the back make the rear flex stiffer, and this can
cause the tip of the ski to rise out of the turns. With the rear-lace binding
the flex allows for some shift in
body weight out of the finish of the turns,
so even if you do fall slightly back before acceleration the tip of the ski
will not rise out of the water. With the whole ski in the water there is no
delay in acceleration, and the edge control of the ski is more secure.
