As with all Voilé tele bindings, there really is no cable in the conventional sense. Instead, a pair of long, rigid, coiled springs with hooks and a locking heel piece complete the necessary toe-to-heel loop. The springs expand ever so slightly with each telemark turn and can be easily adjusted on the heel end. It’s a design that has stood the test of time, and still is very popular with skiers who prefer the comfort and flex of leather and softer-plastic telemark boots.
The so-called “cable” assembly hooks to a bomber toe piece akin to that of the Voilé Hardwire 3-Pin. Similarly, it can be removed to facilitate climbing and reattached for making turns.
At 1 lb, 13 oz. per pair, the Voilé 3-Pin Cable binding weighs in like a featherweight and performs like a middleweight.
