Backcountry Access has resolved their search to name their new beefy binding for backcountry skiing. Wonders, they decided to not give it a new name, but to continue calling it the NX21 with no other monikers (it had been provisionally named the NX21 “stomp” till trademark issues ensued). I applaud this decision, as it’s always annoying when backcountry skiing products have weird multiple names. Now we can just call the thing the NX21 and be done with it. I hope. Meanwhile, we completed our torque testing of the NX21 a few days ago, results here.
