Onyx Bindings and Shogun Boot

Muennich, Pete

Trusting four tiny pins to hold each boot in place in my new bindings took some getting used to. But that is exactly what I do when riding the Garmont Shogun and G3 Onyx. This was my first touring setup, and I really lucked out. Pairing up the Shogun’s ultracomfortable, lightweight design with the Onyx’s state-of-the-art innovation results in an efficient and dependable boot/binding setup. I soon learned to trust the Onyx’s ability to hold onto me, and the Shogun’s ability to steer.

Turns out, both pieces of gear are super tough as well. I tested both to the limits when I fell off a cliff at Slushman’s that ended with broken ribs and a bruised lung. My body might have let me down, but the gear never did; I skied out and was back on the hill within the week. Available at Barrel and Northern Lights. $560; g3onyx.com and $660; garmont.com.
