Impressive.

Anyone know what ski bindings they are?

I believe it's Silvretta Pure Performance. But maybe he can comment more on this.
I have these bindings as well, and I've been happy with them. I'm using these bindings with La sportiva trango ext. evo light boots. Considering getting warmer boots though..
In reply to Carrey: Thanks All!

The bindings are Emery Chrono's. To be fair it wasnt the binding that was playing up but the toe bail on my boot which had worn down so much it kept popping out. Was just easier to explain it that way. Emery Chrono's rock!
