Strenghts:
Easy in use. fits all boots. OK walking comfort. Can still use yor alpine bindings for max control

Weaknesses:
Level up ca 1 1/2" as you walk. not very good in steep traversing. extra weight

Summary:
A really good product if you do not walk too often#long and still want the extra control and safety the ordinary alpine binding gives you

Strenghts:
Good idea.

Weaknesses:
Bad construction.

Summary:
The bottom part that is clamped in the tie should be fixed and not adjustable. This would mean that the Trekkern would not look as close as possible, which is a problem in combination with many bindings. Do you have your own welders, welds, nails, glue and / or screws to unlock this adjustment opportunity and fit directly for your boot's belt length instead. With fixed weight, you can then adjust the ski tie instead if necessary.

Strenghts:
A great way to try a trip without having to buy brand new equipment. Works surprisingly well.

Weaknesses:
A little difficult to turn on and off and to adjust the height of the heels.
A little clumsy on rubbish.
Takes up in the backpack.
Tried for the first time at Easter and when I was screaming in a steep party (when you do not want the ski to run out), the knuckle's toe part on one tie. I'm pretty sure it had not happened if I had not had a puller in the tie.

Summary:
Works well for easier heights, but a real bandwire tie is probably preferable in a bit tougher conditions.

Strenghts:
Easy to use, you do not have to change the tie to "try on" the top trip.

Weaknesses:
It's a bit difficult to trap the heels before coming to technology. A little expensive to buy, but affordable to rent. Hard to go wrong with, but with some practice and technology, it also went.

Summary:
A great option if you want to try a top trip without switching to the proper AT binding. I hired one pair of Trekkers this spring for my top class premiere, and they worked almost clockwise on my magfire 12th. Do not compare to a real AT binding such as Fritchi, Diamir or Mark Duke.

Strenghts:
Be well before, when Marker Duke did not exist, now it feels like old technology.

Weaknesses:
Heavy and friendly, especially when it's steep and hard.
Once you need it, it's located in the garage

Summary:
Put the money on a duke tie instead.

Strenghts:
- You can have your usual binding and I see it as a big plus on the way down.
"It's good because it's the only solution available if you want to be able to have their usual bindings.

Weaknesses:
- The stiffness must be done better, to go obliquely, because they are not at all fun. Get out of the diamond with how much as hell on the way up.
- You must have the smallest bracket up if you have rosignol bindings that I have. However, if it does not look like a problem, it will still go well on flat ground, and if you do not get up then you need to use the bigger bracket, yes, you're not on the way up for a mountain;)

Summary:
Then it's the only solution if you do not want randone. However, it feels like it should be possible to develop the product more. I myself have a lot of determination to go on a duke / diamond or drive with alpine tractors. Have been lucky enough to have nice friends that I borrowed pull off this winter, see what I'm doing next year.

Strenghts:
Easy to use, you can continue using "real" bindings.

Weaknesses:
No special really, though, could be easier.

Summary:
Suitable for those who do not do tops so very often. Only you do it a little then oh then they are awesome!

Strenghts:
Tractors are a good invention for those who want to start to feel the top trip.

Weaknesses:
But unfortunately, as a girl in size 37 in shoes, I have to say that it will be a little bit wise. When you have small pants, the width will be narrower on them and you will go very much laterally in the trekkersen.

Summary:
Think they work better on bigger pants.

Strenghts:
Good complement to standard Alpine equipment, easy to use. steady with fleshy bonds down than a few rando bonds ..

Weaknesses:
heavy, slightly ragged lateral when slanting. one does not sit rocky

Summary:
a very good addition to an alpine gear if you ever buy two pairs of skis to have rando on one pair. brings with me when you go on sports weekends and other lifts to lifts, where there are real mountains nearby and you can not sleep with alpine and rando stuff to the place. works very well .... are the bells of what they are meant for ...

A commitment to travel on very short trips near the lifts. It's almost impossible to shine as they slip off on the side on a bit harder basis. Weight and space space make them unsuitable for lower sharks.
