Are you ready for unsurpassed telemark performance, convenience, durability, and touring?
Sick of trying to flip a heel clip in while your ski slides away? Or fighting with "step-in" bindings that don't really step in or out? Clipping leashes to your boots? Forget about it. The BMF line has ski brakes and true step-in. Welcome to the future.
Still love those comfy 75mm duck bill telemark boots? Lucky you. Unique to Bishop, the BMF's come in 75mm or NTN — with the option to change it down the road without buying a whole new binding. Cha-ching!
Backcountry? We got that. The BMF-R telemark binding boasts a free-pivot touring mode with both low and high heel risers.
It's duck butt season. The BMF-R holds onto your boot at the heel instead of the middle of your foot, “second heel”, or “duck butt” for the most progressive and powerful turns. Longer lever = more power and control.
The BMF-R is made to Bishop's legendary standard of performance and reliability, so you can count on rock-solid downhill power, edging, and now uphill touring. Like all Bishop products, the BMF-R is built to last.
Are you ready to literally step into the future telemark skiing?
Tired of having to bend over on the slope to put heel clips and leashes on while using your mad dexterity skills to keep your ski from becoming a deadly projectile?
Leashes? Heel Clips? Forget about it. The BMF line has ski brakes and true step-in. Welcome to the future.
Oh, and those 75mm duck bill boots that fit like a glove — keep 'em! The BMF's come in 75mm and NTN — with the option to change it down the road without buying a whole new binding.
It's duck butt season. The BMF-3 holds onto your boot at the heel instead of the middle of your foot, “second heel”, or “duck butt” for the most progressive and powerful turns. Longer lever = more power and control.
The BMF-3 is made to Bishop's legendary standard of performance and reliability, so you can count on rock-solid downhill power and edging. And like all Bishop products, the BMF line is built to last.
The Bishop BMF Switch Kit allows you to quickly transfer your bindings between multiple pairs of skis. No need to have a pair of bindings for each set of skis!
Touring? Riding the lift? The BMF Switch Kit is available with or without heel risers.
Compatible with both BMF-R and BMF-3 Bindings. Not compatible with Bishop 2.0 bindings.
Bishop telemark ski brakes can be easily installed or removed with two screws (extras included). Three brake sizes to choose from. It is possible to bend the brakes out a bit for a ski that is a few millimeters wider than the brake, but it is best to go to the next size up.
If anything is better than duct tape it is these 20" long by 3/4" wide flexible straps. Made of tough stretch polyurethane and a hardened aluminum buckle, they have many uses. Sold as each.
These straps are used mainly to hold your skis and bindings together. While carrying your skis, the Bishops can pivot freely and mouse trap your fingers or give you a good smack in your gaper head. Don't be that guy. Look steezy and strap 'em together nice and neat.
Keep this strap in your pocket when skiing as it can be used for many purposes - McGyver style. It's held a broken boot together on more than one occasion. You should always carry a few of these straps when travelling in the backcountry or sidecountry: A-frame skis on your pack, fix a pesky climbing skin, hold your shovel and probe together, the list goes on...
These simple to use climbers come in a low and high version for either 7 or 14 degrees of calf-saving heel rise for the steeps. They can be used independently, so you don't need to put one down to use the other. Keep the low one up when you flip up the big boy, then flip down the high climber and the low one is ready. Sold as a set of two.
Precision engineered designs using bomber materials for ultimate control and reliability when charging hard downhill. No wimpy plastic parts or floppy cables.
Adjustable telemark turn feel from neutral to active. Adapt to the conditions or your own style, whether you’re a free-heeling expert or first timer.
Here in Colorado, spring doesn’t so much “spring” as it does incrementally loosen the white-knuckled death grip of winter. That being said, the pow keeps coming. With the flick of a little lever at the BMF-R’s toe, I’m setting yet another skintrack into pristine wilderness. I’m not gonna say it’s effortless. Even the best touring telemark binding in the world (which the BMF-R is) is still not a Ski-Doo or snowcat, let alone a helicopter. But compared to doing it on tele touring rigs of the past, it’s certainly a joy on the BMF-R. I can lift my heel nearly perpendicular to the ski without even a whisper of mechanical resistance. When the going finally gets steep, I’ll have two...
A young man's love interests are sometimes many and form an inevitable pattern — or at least this young man's did. I've no doubt that there are high school sweethearts out there who never thought of another, content to stick with their first love for a lifetime. Bully for them. Those people are probably still very happy with the performance of their Black Diamond 01 telemark bindings. Speaking solely from my own experience, though, finding true love requires some trial and error. As one loves, falls out, then loves again with someone new, they refine what they are looking for and discover new traits they find endearing or perhaps even extraordinary. But sometimes a new love interest’s deficiencies can't be...
