Simple. Solid. Backcountry. These words are no mere tagline, they are a list of requirements. No matter your chosen target, be it an excursion into deep and unknown wilds or a pleasant jaunt down a familiar country road:you rely on your gear to get you there and back again.(And again. And again.)
Introducing the Voile TTS Binding, with a stainless steel construction and six-hole mounting pattern that is equal to the demands of our 40 year history. Packaged with our time-proven steel rods and spring-loaded cartridges, the TTS is a new spin on a proven winner. And “light is right!” Each pair clocks in at an impressive 1.13kg, making it the obvious choice for go-far telemark pioneers.
Not only does the Telemark Tech System shed serious weight for your uphill excursions, it also makes the most of your prowess on descent. Active or Neutral wire positions... Stiff or Tour cartridges... the immediate spring engagement of its underfoot wire makes for a powerful and responsive ride in anything you and old ma' nature decide to throw at it.

I've been skiing these for the past few weeks with Scarpa TX Pro boots and BD Helio Carbon skis, and I'm loving them! I've used them on bumps and groomers in the resort and in all kinds of backcountry conditions including some steep couloirs and slogging through avi debris and variable crusts and heavy snow. Solid, lightweight, and responsive! After making the switch from 75 mm, these definitely feel much more sturdy and active, while also feeling really lightweight and snappy (especially compared to a 'resort NTN' setup).
The ski shop that installed these bindings on my skis made a big mistake, but I brought them in to the Voile HQ in SLC and everyone there was super supportive and helpful. They re-installed the bindings properly (free of cost) and I really appreciated the great service. Thank you!

I have been skiing the Voile TTS Tele Binding on my beefcake Voile V8 boards for about 15 days.
My initial intention in getting this setup was to be able to rock a big ski but also have an ultra light Tele binding setup that still has enough power to drive a big ski like the Voile V8. I have put the TTS binding through its paces on backcountry tours, snowmobile access skiing, and resort skiing.
I found that the TTS toured exceptionally well especially on a super duper deep ski tour on Pennsylvania Creek just south of Breckenridge. Touring with the TTS really lightened the load of skinning with such a big ski as the V8. The tech toe gave me unlimited range of motion, effortless kick turns, and frictionless glide strides. But, it may have lightened the load just a little too much because my backcountry partners had me break trail for 70% of the ski tour after a 2 foot overnight snow dump, LOL!! I think that they were jealous of my setup, LOL!!
My real test for any Tele binding is determined by how well the binding performs in the resort on bumps, steeps, crud, and carving groomers. I first tested these bindings in the coastal Cascade cement mountain range in the Crystal and Mt Baker ski resorts in Washington. My experience was that the TTS responded surprisingly quick edge to edge especially given the girth of the V8. The binding rods provided the lateral stiffness needed to drive the Voile V8 ski even in the heavy and wet snows of the Cascades.
And now that we have enough snow in the Colorado backcountry I took the TTS and Voile V8 setup for a snowmobile access day of skiing on Vail Pass. My TTS bindings are setup in the active position with the stiffest cartridges. And wow!! I found that the stiff and active setup made for quick, playful and snappy-happy turns.
Yes, it took just a bit of trial and error to properly align the tech toe pins into the Scarpa TX Comp tech toe holes. Now that I have 15 days on the setup I’ve been able to securely engage the tech toe boot and binding without issue.

Light and solid
With 45 years of free heel skiing under my skis, I have been looking for a light weight setup that would allow me to use a light, free hinged AT boot. I have over 60 days on the TTS with an old pair of yellow Scarpa F1 boots. Three days on hard pack at the resort. Perfect for those of us that want our heels free even if we are not telemarking any longer. I have a 26.0 boot and the binding is still very stiff with the bale on the front setting. I would prefer a slightly more free heel or softer springs, but they still offer the benefits of a free heel. The toe piece has a small learning curve with regards to entry. I find it easiest to put the hinged pin in first and then the fixed pin. Overall a great lightweight sturdy free heel tech binding that allows you to take advantage of the lighter, more hinged AT type boots and still throw a tele turn down if needed.
