First Look: Moonlight’s Tele Tech Bindings
Our core DNA
Sep 16 Last week Moonlight Mountain Gear unveiled a revised website showing the first production versions of their tech style bindings with an optional heel stabilizer or a lighweight tech-style heel. As reported last season, the prototype bindings skied well but there were several unfinished details. Based on images of the final product it appears that the essential elements of the Tele Pure and Tele Rando bindings have the same functionality as the prototypes.

Tele Rando. A super light touring randonee binding combined with our Super light telemark accessories. Together you get the Tele Rando — the binding that gives you the Choice to ski the style you want when you want. Front binding The front binding is redesigned for this season. Stronger, lighter and easier to use than ever before.
As with many bindings in this new genre of tele bindings using the 2-pin tech toe it shows much promise, but the bindings tested were still in beta form. Two options to improve lateral stability at the heel: i by locking it with a minimalist AT low-tech heel, or… ii using a heel stabilizer to improve free heel lateral stiffness. There was little question the snow shedding spacer would reduce snow build up. The question was, to what degree? Thankfully, it did so quite well. The pitched roof appeared to allow snow to escape to the sides, even in sticky snow conditions. Surprisingly this was true even in cases where the roofed spacer only covered a portion of the gap between toe pins and cable hooks.
