OAC EA 2.0 bindings

EA 2.0 is a revised version of OAC's easy-to-use EA reference book. Functionally, the binding is largely the same as its predecessor, but with the improvements and changes made, the binding works even better. The white signature color and updated design give the tie a new look.

Base part and spring: The adjustment lever of the base part has been improved so that the new lever covers the spring in motion, which prevents snow from accumulating in the binding. The thickness of the base part has been increased in order to obtain more spring force. The new rubber spring is also easier to replace than before.

Straps: The new toe strap gives better lateral support, while the ankle strap is more flexible and shapes to fit the foot better. The latest plastic materials have been used in the straps, which have better frost resistance than before.

Buckles: New types of buckles improve the wearing comfort of the bandage. The new buckles have a different mechanism that prevents the buckle from opening by itself.

Base plate: The size of the ankle straps in the EA 2.0 binding is different from its predecessor, which is why the new base plate is sturdier and provides more support in descents. Otherwise, the binding adjustments and length have remained the same.

Suitable for shoes with a sole length of 24-38 cm. Like its predecessor, the bandage is only suitable for shoes with flexible soles that bend from the toe.

Therefore, all parts are made in the EU. Each part is easy to replace with a new one if necessary, because in EA 2.0 no part is riveted. Fastening is done with screws.
