Salomon Tactic 2014 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Salomon Tactic has a different feel from some of the other bindings.

Flex: It uses a high back withg a

Adjustability: Not much here.  The straps are a lot more work than the higher end quick adjust bindings in Salomon’s line and the rest of the binding doesn’t have many options to fit around your boot.

Comfort: Ankle strap and toe strap are comfortable for most and fit well.

Turn Initiation: Nice mellow forgiving turn initiation.

Buttering: Nothing special underfoot and kind of dead.

Boot Support: The ankle and toe strap wrap well around your boot.  It’s supportive but still not locked in.

Ratchet System: Just average and it seems to work fine but not sure about long term reliability.

Shock Absorption: Pretty much a pad-less base plate that doesn’t provide much shock absorption.

It’s got a skate like feel that some might like but those that want shock absorption should look somewhere else.  The binding is damp but it’s not shock absorbent. The price is fair and the binding is well made it’s just not anything special to write home about. The 2014 hasn’t changed much from the 2013
