Patent Pending MTNApproach Hinge is cast in A356 Aluminum heat treated to T6 hardness with a 7075 T6 hardened aluminum cam shaft. The PVC coated cables aid in folding operation and black annodizing make these hinges look stealthy. These hinges are heavy duty and will allow your MTNApproach skis to carry up to 350lbs and only weigh 8.6oz each.
For most users, we recommend installing Aluminum hinges on the front of your MTNA skis, and keeping composite hinges on the rear(to save weight).
user weight = <150lbs, all composite hinges on your MTNApproach skis
user weight = 150-225lbs, AL hinges on the front, composite hinges on the rear of skis.
user weight = >225lbs, AL hinges on both front and rear of skis.
