Knowing that women are more prone to ACL injuries than men, it seemed a natural step for us to develop a binding that could create a safer ski experience for female athletes
STOWE, VT (PRWEB) March 17, 2016
KneeBinding, the brand behind the first-of-its-kind revolutionary protective binding, continues to uphold its commitment to superior gear safety with a unique binding specifically configured for female skiers.
The Mist, one of five models within the KneeBinding collection, offers a safer, high-performance experience for female skiers of all skill sets. Designed with the optimal fore-aft stance for women, the Mist model places the wearer slightly more upright than other bindings, decreasing forward lean that can lead to injury and naturally positioning the wearer into a more athletic stance while skiing.
“ACL tears are the number one reported injury for skiers, and women face a higher risk than men,” said KneeBinding Chairman, John Springer-Miller. “Our mission statement has always been to create a piece of gear that skiers of all levels can trust to keep them safe. Knowing that women are more prone to ACL injuries than men, it seemed a natural step for us to develop a binding that could create a safer ski experience for female athletes.”
While the Mist helps adjust the wearer’s natural ski posture, all KneeBinding products provide an unparalleled level of protection against ACL injuries through the binding’s unique PureLateral™ heel release. This multi-patented mechanism is designed to eject the skier’s boot once too much rear-weighted force is applied, without any pre-release issues during regular use.
Offering the perfect combination of performance and protection, KneeBinding products are also equipped with a one of a kind FlexFloat™ floating mount system and Leveredge™ interface which allow the ski to flex more naturally through each turn, thereby minimizing the risk of premature release and allowing users to perform better by getting the most out of their equipment.
KneeBindings are available for purchase at over 500 trusted retailers worldwide. For more information on KneeBinding, please visit http://www.KneeBinding.com.
