The full line of 2016/17 SPIKE bulldog bindings are currently available. The lineup includes SPIKE *3 pin* (75mm step-in 3 pin binding with or without ski brake), SPIKE *Tour* (75mm step-in touring binding), SPIKE *XT* (75 mm lift service binding with ski brake), and SPIKE *NT* (NTN compatible). All SPIKE bindings have a 6 hole mounting pattern for solid fixation to the ski. All of our bindings incorporate pivoting step-in toe box and the unique 'bulldog' clamping action that give these bindings an unparalleled level of responsiveness. A ski brake is incorporated into several SPIKE models. We custom build our bindings based on skier specifications for optimal performance and convenience; using different spring load, boot length adjustments, and single or double barrel heel assemblies.




Moving Telemark Binding Technology Forward

Burnt Mountain Designs LLC, is a small group of telemark enthusiasts in northern Vermont that specialize in step-in telemark ski bindings. Everything is designed and assembled in house to your specific needs, and our sales are primarily direct to the customer. Our patented toe piece pivots wide open, allowing a skier to slip their boot easily into the binding, and lock in with one swift snap. A ski brake (optional for touring bindings) deploys when out of the binding and holds the ski in place when stepping into the bindings. Our specialized toe box has also been adapted to the NTN system. We offer skiers the options of either 75mm norm or NTN compatible bindings. All of our toe boxes heel assemblies are interchangeable within the SPIKE series, and we build each pair of bindings to our customers specifications.
