Boost 12 Heel Pieces
NEED JUST BOOST 12 HEEL UNITS? WE HAVE YOU COVERED.
Heel pieces are sold as singles. Order two if you need a set.
Effortless!The Boost 12 is simply a better skiing, more efficient and hassle-free backcountry binding combining several ingenuous performance innovations: an extremely solid boot/ski connection at light weight, no torsional movement, precise release and great descending feel.
You already earn your turns. Now forge your own path.
The Boost 12's refined Magneto® heel climbing aids are easily flippable with pole or hand for five (five!!) climbing positions. Two climbing positions can be selected without any need to twist the heel piece, making for safer adjustments in precarious situations. At only 183 grams, the Boost 12 heel piece is the lightest high-performance free ride touring heel piece in the world!
The heel piece can be turned in any direction. The brake arms are extra long with wide hooks to stop your skis quickly when they go airborne without you. Integrated crampon hooks allow stress-free ascents up bulletproof snow or in no-fall zones.
- ELASTIC RESPONSE SYSTEM: an elastic sliding system in the heel allows unrestrained flex of the ski during compression and excellent skiing performance
- CAM RELEASE SYSTEM: stabilizes the heel pins and provides the typical torsional stiffness of ATK® bindings
- RELEASE VALUES: fully adjustable VERTICAL (My) and LATERAL (Mz) release systems (5-10)
- HEEL FLAP WITH RAISER: provides 3 different walking modes: FLAT MODE, +36 mm and +50 mm
- 25 mm ADJUSTMENT PLATE: integrated in the heel part enables fast adjustment for boot substitution (up to 3 full sizes)
The Boost 12 is made for HAGAN in partnership with ATK and is the same as the ATK Front 12. We will match any legit price and provide better customer service and faster response. ATK is well respected for exceptionally high quality, craftsmanship and functionality and manufactures a wide variety of bindings and other alpine touring gear in Italy. HAGAN partnered with ATK to bring what we feel are their best bindings to the U.S.
Wide toe and heel mounts effectively transfer power. The patented E.R.S. ® (Elastic Response System) system absorbs energy resulting in consistent release values while allowing the ski to flex naturally under compression for improved downhill performance. The patented CAM heel system adjusts to impact forces, providing far better control and skiing precision than simple “U Forks.” Vertical and Horizontal release are independently adjustable. Available ATK AL09 Free-ride spacers further improve performance.
All adjustments on the binding can be made with a standard Phillips screwdriver, so you can leave a few extra tools out of your pack.

Boost 12 Heel Piece FeaturesMAGNETO ® HEEL RISERS: intuitive heel flap system which provides 5 different climbing modes including flat. Easily change between two positions with your pole basket.
CAM HEEL RELEASE SYSTEM ® (Adjustable Release 5-12): a cam system which drives the Vertical release (My) of the binding in case of a fall. The cam system is extremely precise and reliable, and at the same time very light and small.
