22 Designs is the world leader in telemark bindings, thanks to years of laser focus on tele innovation. The company was founded in 2004 by Chris Valiante and Collins Pringle, when they inherited the HammerHead binding from Rainey Designs. They introduced the acclaimed free-pivot Axl binding in 2009, then the Vice. The Outlaw X is the world's first step-in NTN binding, and the first with a true free pivot. Our newest binding, the Lynx, is a tech-toe light touring telemark binding, a beast in the backcountry.
