NEW FOR 2019: We did a ton of precision engineering analysis and design to optimize the toe area for this year to make them even stronger with better energy transfer.
If you want to make the switch from 75mm "duck bill" to NTN boots, simply unbolt your BMFs from your switch plate and send them to Bishop HQ. We will install the new toe as well as perform a full binding inspection to repair or replace any worn parts if needed. We then lather on a layer of Binding Butter, and complete a full tune up of your bindings. They will be ready to soar like a fighter jet with grace and style.
We 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.
Note: the BMF/3 upgrade is more expensive as it is a much bigger part being the entire front end of the binding.
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. Invest in one burly beautiful Bishop binding and spread the love across your entire quiver, almost cutting the cost in half or more. 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 can not 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.

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 and improved spring plugs 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:
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.
Sold as a pair of two (2) brakes.
