Summary:
Had Shift when I seasoned in Revelstoke in 2019. Some had lots of rubbish with them and others nothing, but you can sum it up like this:

If you want to ride a lot and take them where 2000 height meters every day, it might be suitable with a tech bond as it is lighter and the legs will not pallet squeeze the ski so much that a stronger bond will be needed.

If you want to drip and drive large cliffs with back flips and are used to DIN 16, the binding is also not suitable. It is a bit more fragile than a solid bandwidth.

If you are one more Svensson who likes and varies top tour, slack country and piste and wants the best compromise for this, Shift is what you should have. When I went out, I felt no big difference to a regular bond. Now maybe I drop / jump no more than 1-1.5 meters and then they work well.

What can be good to know is to be afraid of them when handling them. Many small parts, so stomp not just right down. Also, they lock them properly one walks
You also need to screw up the DIN more than you normally do. Previously, I have been driving at 9, but with the shifter I drove 11.

It is now the best option for those who dare not rely entirely on tech but who think bandwidth is too heavy.

Summary:
Just returned from a 3-day peak trip where I got the chance to try my Shift for real. Runs a rather heavy combination compared to other riders (Opinion 118 with Shift) but was no major problem to hang on all days.

Wonderful to be able to completely rely on the bonding to stay even though you are pulling heavily and the substrate is a little harder (had some really unpleasant thieves with an older tech bond).

The ski jumpers released 2 times during the trip (probably due to handling errors) as it can sometimes be difficult to know if the walking position is completely depressed. Which, by and large, was not a problem as we grazed quite a few altitude meters overall. Also, no problems with the toe part being released are erected either.

In total; A bond that is heavier than the classic tech bindings but which gives a feeling of security down that makes me ready to carry about 200 grams more per bond. Of course, except if you are going to go really far and much.

For me, it may be close to the perfect bonding actually. Will be fun to see what the competitors are coming with!

Have now had this bond on my first powder journey. Is right disappointed. When turning, stoppers solve as soon as you get a small blow to the ski. Ended up having them taped up with silver tape.
In three days of skiing I had several unjustified triggers of toe and several times I had to stay in the field and get out and in the bond when the boot moved in the toe part.

Variable

No so far

Summary:
Complete light and very useful Now I only have a couple of skis in the pack. If I have to ski a lot, I have to rent skis.

Strenghts:
Works just as well uphill and downhill. Relatively light and works just like a "real" alpine bond.

Weaknesses:
The locking of the ski stopper is a little tricky to lock and unlock. But it might just be a habit-question ...

Summary:
Is it the ultimate bond ...? Yes I think so! Versatile is just the first name. Feel very safe in them. However, do not "clot" with them than the mouth can fine to knock out the boot piece sideways. Relatively easy operation when it is to be changed from a low position to a ride and vice versa. Sure, it costs its just over five thousand dollars, but I want to say that they are worth it. Recommended!

Strenghts:
Solid alpine bond down. Pins upwards. Incredibly nice to avoid the pine down. The brakes are not thawless during the trip. Always fold them up with your hand before changing to a low position.

Weaknesses:
Higher heel elevators are missing. Filed the brakes to cope with the locks.

Summary:
GameChanger.

Strenghts:
Incredibly easy to change from "go" to "perform". Low mounted so good contact with the ski.

Weaknesses:
No so far

Summary:
Have a couple mounted on my BC chamox and have to agree with the previous reviewer! It s a game changer! I have previously run bindings and tested the king pin but these are everything. Feels like any alpine binding, which means that the feeling of safety is there all the time. Perfect for beginners who want to jump on the "lucky" train as it is easy to step in and out.

Strenghts:
Game Changer! Just as it is said of their own skaters, I can only agree. A bond that is reliable and functions as an alpine bond, while the tour possibilities are there.

Weaknesses:
Slightly heavier than the lightest lightweight.

Summary:
This is the future and it is probably only a matter of time before all other manufacturers hang on.

Strenghts:
Fantastic perform. I only have a few days in the piste on them yet but they keep really nice with good contact with the snow. No tendencies to poaching. Crashed forward over cowhide skis too and it cleared out exemplary. I didn't even feel the twist in the knee because it was already snap-out distinct and good.

Weaknesses:
No so far, except that the stopers get stuck in each other and make the skis impossible to take apart smoothly. One point of view is that it is a bit complicated to assemble, but it is on the margin.

Summary:
Superb perform and yet quite ok weight up. I only have the bench-tested switchover between riding and walking mode so far, but it seems extremely smooth in a dry and warm climate. Of course, it is a bit heavier than lightweight items, but at the same time you get the safety of a regular alpine bonding / binding for virtually the same weight as Kingpin / Beast. Personally, I switched away Beast16 most to get a safer trigger mechanism. Beasten kept doing just as well, but I am afraid of the knees and would prefer not to have a chance with the heel.

Edit: Now I have also tested it upright. Everything worked great smoothly. The switching between riding and walking is really great and I have had no problems whatsoever. Others in the gang have gone on Kingpins, Vipec, Dynafit radical and G3 but none have been smoother than the Shift. The only thing I could wish for is a switch from going to yoke and hoping to solve with your fingers but if you put the stick in, then it jumps nicely between.

Strenghts:
Strong and sturdy turbo bonding that can withstand hard driving and is functional on the way both up and down.

Weaknesses:
After 3 months of use, I have not seen any major weaknesses. Seeing it has been mentioned "arbitrary to switch between driving and walking mode" and "high altitude" After driving STH for the last 4 years that have the same height, I have no problems with this height clearly it is not down the skies as a part clean tech bindings, but this does not impair driving pleasure or properties like I see it. Nor have I ever had any trouble switching between running and walking mode even in conditions where everything else and most other tech bindings would have had major problems working.

Summary:
Perfect binding for those who do not think much about weight and also want a strong tie for the downturn. You also do not need more pairs of skis because switching between fit tech binding and regular running shoes is done within 1 min.
