As I previously mentioned, the conditions for this project were far from ideal. We faced it all – from frozen, rock hard pistes to rain to icy crusts, but even on the most brutal downhills, the binding never let me down. If it had released, the results would have been fatal. But I had total trust in the system after just my first downhill. Thoughts of a potential unintended release flew out the window, and I could fully concentrate on the activity and achieve my goal. The new Pintech System played a significant role in allowing me to complete the project in under 29 hours. In fact, the system had impressed me so greatly, that I immediately used it too in the Sellaronda Skimarathon – and achieved a personal best.
Of course, we don’t want to ignore the fact that my positive experience matched results from the lab. Here too the Pintech System was resoundingly impressive. Our engineers were not able to find even the tiniest sign of wear on the binding after my tough test. There’s nothing standing in the way of the next Speed Transalp.
