Haute Route 8 Binding

Regular price $599.95

The Haute Route is likely the world’s best-known ski traverse, running from Chamonix to Zermatt over some of the most spectacular alpine terrain in France and Switzerland. Aspiring Haute Route traversers must have strong lungs and legs to pair with total descending confidence through steep terrain and in difficult wind-affected snow. A perfect binding for the Haute Route would marry a sub-200g chassis with advanced release and retention characteristics, and that’s exactly what ATK’s Haute Route does. Negligibly heavier than the Trofeo race-style binding, but with rotating heel pins and an adjustable release value, the Haute Route gives peace-of-mind for hard-charging and cautious skiers alike. Look to ATK and the lightweight innovation of the Haute Route whether your powder setup is going on a diet or your mountaineering ski needs a higher-level binding.

  • Binding design brings together a race-style toe piece with an all-capable heel piece.
  • Two riser heights (plus flat mode) for added capability with beefier touring boots.
  • 30mm adjustment plate included for skiers with a quiver of boots.
  • Compatible with an added ATK ski brake for an inbounds-ready setup, if needed.
  • Claimed weight: 165g (no adjustment track), 225g (w/30mm adjustment plate added). 


ATK Says:

Many models from ATK are the lightest in its class. So is the HR 8 in the class of bindings that offer defined release settings for the vertical and the horizontal axis.
Thanks to the Cam Release System even by far.

The accessories Kevlar Core Leash, SRA Crampons Slot and R01 Adjustment Plate are included in the binding.


  • Easy Entry System®: new geometry of the toe parts elements that makes the step-in easy and confident with any tech boot available on the market, even in case of worn out soles.
  • Monolink® Technology 1.0: the left arm of the toe part is fix, provides a weight reduction of 2,5 grams per toe part and improves stiffness. Lower pressure on the locking system with higher performances.
  • The new Magneto Heel Flaps® with raiser guarantees an increased comfort and provides 3 different walking modes.
  • The release system provides a 3 to 8 adjustment range, both lateral (Mz) and vertical (My).
  • CAM RELEASE SYSTEM®: exclusive system that provides the most stable downhill performance on the market, extremely precise release and the softest heel step-in of the industry.
