Teledaze Step-In Telemark Binding

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute - $11500.00

This grant supports the development of a new step-in telemark ski binding. Using NCIIA funding the team will further develop and refine a design for a binding that improves on existing technology to provide a superior step-in binding with few moving parts, low weight and applicability to both lift area and backcountry situations. The members of the team include dedicated teleskiers and a group of advisors with appropriate experience and connections. The team will build and test prototypes, develop a market survey and business plan, explore IP opportunities, and ultimately launch the product.
