Salomon’s ‘ShadowFit’ technology was met with some skepticism when it first appeared, but these days there’s no denying its popularity. Any female riders willing to try it out should take a look at the Salomon Mirage.

The key tech here is the soft, malleable heelcup that provides the perfect fit with the backstay of any boot. With no dead spots or pressure points, response is improved too – especially with a Kevlar wire which runs through the cup, strengthening it in the process.

“The Salomon Mirage remains one of our favourite women’s bindings”

The position of the Salomon Mirage’s custom highback can be fine tuned, in terms of both rotation and forward lean, so you can get the perfect setup with ease. The highback is also asymmetrical, specifically designed to offer maximum comfort for each individual leg.

The ankle strap has an asym design too, with support targeted at the areas where it’s most needed. Combined with the binding’s medium flex, this allows you to try your hand at all kinds of riding, all over the mountain. Whenever there’s a need to adjust either strap, the system is unbeatable in its simplicity and effectiveness.

Now featuring its snazziest graphic ever, the Salomon Mirage remains one of our favourite women’s bindings, and represents serious value for money.

Tester’s Verdict

Charlotte Strachanhideout-hostel.com

“These bindings were so comfortable! The toe strap fitted super well with my boot, and the padded ankle strap felt really secure.

“They feel soft with a whole range of movement that’s perfect for freestyle and tweaking out those tricks”

The flexible heel cup is the difference with these bindings though; they feel soft with a whole range of movement that’s perfect for freestyle and tweaking out those tricks, but they still held up going fast, carving or in the powder.

Add in the palm tree graphic on the highback… what more could you want!?”
