The Kōm is a ski we have been working on for a few years, and the idea of it goes back to the start of Altai Skis. It’s a dedicated backcountry ski without many of the usual compromises. The Kōm can be skied with a downhill focus and it rises to lighter XCD touring use with a fun, stable feel.

Heel Piece Kit – 3Pin- For Hoks$19.95
We are big fans of the 3 pin (75mm ) system. This boot binding combination is sturdy, offers great ski control, is light, and tours really well. They are also plentiful and inexpensive. If you have some classic old leather Asolos or Merrells (or Fabiano’s, Scarpas, Heierlings, Alicos…) and some 3 pins, Hoks are a great way to put them to use. This year we are offering a Heel Piece Kit. The kit includes the custom heel pieces, designed to use inserts in the ski for no drill mounting, and adjustable to fit any size 3 pin boot. Along with the heel pieces, all the machine screws for mounting your 3 pins are included, along with a packet of threadlocker to keep the screws from loosening in the inserts. Screw size is M6 (6 mm) and lengths are 16 mm for the heel pieces and 12 mm for the toe pieces. This is an inexpensive and effective way to get going on a pair of Hoks.
Climbing Wire for custom heel pieces$9.50
These climbing wires fit with our custom no drill heel pieces that are used with the 3pin or 3pin cable bindings. Like the heel pieces, the wires are adjustable to fit all boot sizes. There are 3 slots in the base of the heel piece as well as the two positions (via the inserts) for the heel pieces on the Hok. The heel wire adds about 15mm in height.
3 Pin Cable 75mm Binding$142.95
I have been using the 3 pin cable since it came out in the 1980s. The binding is light, sturdy and reliable. One can tour with it in the free flexing 3pin mode (either unbuckle the cables or take them off),or lock in the cables for the more secure and powerful downhill mode. Add to this a double attachment for increased reliability in the backcountry and a weight of only 12 oz per ski and you have the ideal backcountry binding. We highly recommend this for the Kōm ski.
If you plan to use the 3 pin cable on the Hoks please specify in the note section of your order and we will substitute the heel kit with the appropriate M6 screws for the inserts.
