Since 1993, Caron Alpine Technologies, Inc. has produced and distributed bindings under the CATEK brand name. Our bindings are used by some of the best riders on the planet, and are the highest performance, most adjustable and most reliable bindings available.
Both our Freeride and Olympic series bindings employ CATEK's patented Quick Cant design to enable independent adjustment of heel/toe lift and canting on the hill – a critical feature for a neutral, powerful stance for every rider in any snow condition. No other binding made matches this capability.
The benchmark CATEK Olympic Series 2 (OS2) plate bindings – available in INTEC step-in and bail closure configurations – provide the utmost in precision and reliability so that every carve is direct and powerful. Racers and freecarvers alike benefit from the OS2's World Cup winning performance and adjustability. CATEK's Freeride 2 (FR2) series bindings leverage the Quick Cant design to bring unprecedented adjustability and power to soft binding riders.
Because the CATEK business model vertically integrates intellectual property, product development, production, and direct consumer level distribution – the consumer benefits from increased value. CATEK continually strives to improve its business model so that it can provide the consumer with more product value.
Caron Alpine Technologies, Inc. is the premier supplier of high performance bindings worldwide. Either pending or issued patents protect much of the technology developed by Caron Alpine Technologies, Inc. Licensing opportunities are available on terms that are mutually beneficial to both parties.
