Improved heavy duty Switch Plate Technology™ with Spiralock® threads for quick and secure transfer across multiple pairs of skis.
Now even more burly, the BMF HD Switch Kit allows you to quickly transfer your bindings between multiple pairs of skis. Save your hard earned cash money for Apres. No need to have a pair of bindings for each set of skis.
The BMF/R Switch Kit comes with climbing wires, and the BMF/3 Switch Kit does not. You cannot use climbing wires with the resort oriented BMF/3 binding. These are not compatible with Bishop 2.0 bindings. A 2.0 Switch Kit is available for that binding.
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER TO RESERVE YOUR SPRINGS. You will be charged the full amount, and we currently plan on shipping orders the week of November 5th, maybe earlier.
Everybody is different, and we understand that, if you're a lighter skier or just love that knee to the ski turn, we've developed a softer and more responsive spring to customize your new bindings to your turn. Four pre-buttered springs are included.
These springs are 30% softer than our standard spring. They will give you a lighter feel, quicker lead changes, and allow you to flex your bindings a bit further. Check out this nerdy graph:

Since 2001, Bishop has offered value to telemark skiers with the original switch kit system. Buy one bomber BMF binding, and use it on your whole quiver of skis. The Bishop BMF Switch Kit allows you to quickly transfer your bindings between multiple pairs of skis. Save your hard earned cash money for Apres. No need to have a pair of bindings for each set of skis.
The BMF-R Switch Kit comes with climbing wires, and the BMF-3 Switch Kit does not. You cannot use climbing wires with the resort oriented BMF-3 binding. These Switch Kits are not compatible with Bishop 2.0 bindings. A 2.0 Switch Kit is available for that binding.
NEW for 2019, we've added a 90mm brake width. Bishop telemark ski brakes can be easily installed or removed with two screws that hold the brake cover in place on the binding (extra screws included). Four brake sizes to choose from to fit your rig. It is possible to bend the brakes out or in a bit for a ski that is a few millimeters wider or narrower than the brake, to get the brake as close as possible to the ski edge without interfering.
If and when you want to make the switch to NTN boots, simply unbolt your BMFs from your switch plate, and mail them to Bishop HQ. We will swap your 75mm Toe Pieces with NTN compatible parts, as well as provide a full Binding Inspection to repair or replace any worn parts if needed, Lather on a layer of Binding Butter, and complete a full "Tune Up" of your bindings.
We highly recommend that you send them to us, although we do understand that there are certain circumstances that will make that difficult, so In those cases we will offer the parts to ship. Unless you are a do it yourself person with mechanical skills, we suggest letting the experts take care of it.
Bamboo is an amazing material with the tensile strength of steel and a compressive strength greater than concrete. When cut to the length of a ski pole, the species of bamboo that we use provides the perfect combination of rigidity and flexibility so it wont snap or kink like aluminum.
That's why we're offering a Bishop Bamboo Pole. Take you're pole plants to the next level, and stand out in the lift line, with some signature Bishop Sticks!
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...
This allows you to set-up a second (or third, fourth...) set of skis to accept a single pair of Bishop originals or 2.0s. So if you want to rig up a different set of boards as conditions or your mood changes, you can swap a set of Bishops from ski to ski in about 5 minutes with a 5mm hex key. No need to have a pair of bindings for each set of skis!
What you get:
Keep your bindings running smooth and fast with Bishop Binding Butter. This low temperature grease is specially formulated for snowy cold conditions. 1.75 ounces.
The Bishop telemark binding is a precision piece of equipment, and as such, needs a little maintenance love every so often. This low temperature grease is used on the Main Springs, Touring pivot of the BMFs, and on the Bishop 2.0 at the main pivot and bolts that attach the Heel Bail to the Heel Pad.
Want a leash specifically designed for your badass Bishop 2.0 binding? Look no further. This ankle strap buckle leash is specifically designed to work with the Bishop Heel Clip. Sold as a set of two leashes.
NOT compatible with the Bishop BMF bindings.
Although the chances of the Bishops coming off are slim, most resorts require leashes and it is a good idea in case things go horrible awry. These leashes have the added benefit of ensuring that you don't accidentally step on the Heel Clip while skiing and release your boot.
