The Tracker (which also comes in Salomon flavor under the name Guardian) comes in at 2,960 grams a pair, making it one of the heavier touring options. That said, as skis and boots shed weight like it’s about to be beach season, heavier bindings aren’t as big of an issue as they used to be. The footprint of the binding is quite long, and makes the ski fell stiffer than it would, perhaps, with a traditional alpine binding. The Hike and Ride switch is easily the Tracker’s biggest plus—it’s simple, easy, and not a total nightmare to de-ice. For those looking into a frame style, alpine-boot-compatible touring option, the Tracker is a strong contender.
