Hi @barthur - Thanks for the question! The 2020/2021 bindings feature 2-spring toes, based on Alpinist technology, to save 80g per toe without sacrificing any performance. In comparison, the 2019/2020 bindings have a 6-spring setup.

Exciting to hear you’re gearing up to go touring! Have anywhere in the plans already?
