Teledaze Step-In Telemark Binding

University of Colorado - Boulder, 2000 - $11,500

This grant supported the development of a new step-in telemark ski binding. Using NCIIA funding, the team further developed and refined 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 included dedicated teleskiers and a group of advisors with appropriate experience and connections. The team built and tested prototypes, developed a market survey and business plan, and explored IP opportunities.
