Brand offers protective binding specifically designed to support advanced-level skiers

KneeBinding HardCore model

The HardCore model is a piece of gear that users can trust to keep them safe without holding them back.

KneeBinding, the Vermont-based brand behind the first-of-its-kind protective binding, further demonstrates its mission to promote superior gear safety with the design of the HardCore model, a binding specifically made to support advanced skiers.

The HardCore, the newest of five models within the KneeBinding collection, offers higher retention settings and forward pressure to help top performing free stylers and racers reach their full potential, while dramatically reducing the possibility of a knee-related injury. Designed with a 3mm ramp delta for a more balanced stance, the model’s fully cantilevered breaks and geometry allow for aggressive carving and more reliable switch landings perfect for hard-charging skiers.

“Our bindings offer superior protection and performance to skiers of all levels, but we also wanted to design a product specifically for top-level athletes,” said John Springer-Miller, KneeBinding Chairman. “ACL tears are the most common – and one of the most damaging – injuries for skiers, and these professional skiers are at a higher risk because they push their limits every day. The HardCore model is a piece of gear that users can trust to keep them safe without holding them back.”

Just like other KneeBinding models, the HardCore adds a third dimension to standard alpine bindings with its unique PureLateral™ heel release. This multi-patented mechanism detects the forces that cause harmful knee tears and releases before the injury takes place, with no issues of pre-release during regular use. Additionally, the one of a kind FlexFloat™ floating mount system and unique Leveredge™ interface allow the skis to flex more naturally through each turn, thereby minimizing the risk of premature release and allowing skiers to get the most out of their equipment.

KneeBindings are available now for purchase at over 500 trusted retailers worldwide. For more information on KneeBinding, please visit
