The Kingpin is a lightweight touring option that provides retention, releaseability, and bomber skiability. While the toe maintains the two-point connection, the heelpiece has an alpine-like wide contact around the boot. This not only provides retention and release, but the reliable “thunk” of stepping in. Going between walk and ski mode is not the easiest, and the heelpiece has a lot of plastic, but if you want just one setup, the Kingpin is all you need.
