The new Daymakers TEKDAPTERS SKI TOURING ADAPTERS convert any downhill ski setup into a "pin tech" powder chasing alpine touring rig in a matter of seconds.
Through the incredible versatility of a ski touring adapter, the Tekdapters system breaks the barrier to pin tech ski touring efficiency on the uphill with the safety & performance of DIN certified alpine bindings on the way down.
The all-new Tekdapters step directly in and out of any alpine binding, instantly transforming them into an ultra-rigid, friction-free pin interface tech binding for the ascent.
Collapse the adapter to it's smallest size, and stash them in your pack to experience the descent without worrying about pre-release or injury from a non-releasable touring binding. Ski variable snow conditions with a whole new level of bump smashing confidence clicked into your trusted, unmodified, full-of-elastic-travel, alpine bindings.
With one easy purchase you will be able to tour with any ski you own now or in the future, eliminating the need to buy expensive touring bindings over and over again.
Through 3 years of development and testing, we managed to load this adapter full of features - all while achieving a weight of just 530g. That's 100g lighter than a Look Pivot toe piece.
The creme de la creme of the TEKDAPTERS. The TEKLOCK system is made possible by the unique Jaw Plate component.
TEKLOCK Jaw Plate
This highly machined T6 Aluminum part utilizes compliant zones that flex within the materials range of elastic deformation to close the pins directly onto the tech inserts in the toe of your boot. This is superior to a pivoting closure as there is zero slop, zero wear, less weight and more strength.
Universal Binding Interface
THE TEKLOCK Jaw Plate has been painstakingly designed referencing 3d scan data collected from every major binding on the market. The carefully considered cutouts on the front of the Jaw Plates precisely wrap around even the deepest and widest toe pieces, like the infamous Salomon STH series, giving you the freedom to ski tour on your most trusted bindings for the utmost in backcountry performance and safety.
Glove & Ski Pole Friendly TEKLOCK Lever
Lock into the TEKDAPTERS with an easy to operate quick release lever. Unlock the system with an oversized lever loop designed to fit your ski pole, avoiding the need to bend down to step out of the adapter.
Crampon Compatible Design
The through-shaft of the TEKLOCK system doubles as a mounting interface for Daymaker-specific crampons. (Coming soon)
The Sole-Sync™ system makes setting up TEKDAPTERS to match your boot soles a breeze. Collapse the TEKDAPTERS from a maximum length of 345mm down to a minuscule 255mm with the flip of a switch!
Z-Clamp Quick Release
With the flick of a glove-friendly quick release lever, the TEKDAPTERS unlock both telescopic tubes at once for fast and effortless resizing.
Customize Your Size
The alphabetically scaled telescopic tubes can be trimmed just like ski poles, to reduce the pack-size down to an unobtrusive 205mm in length. An internal topout cord, which keeps the TEKDAPTERS from overextending, can be tied off for a super fast and precise deployment to your exact boot size, every time.
Tool-Free AFD Adjust
The tool free Anti Friction Device (AFD) Shims are easily adjustable to match the exact thickness of your boot soles. From Gripwalk soles (ISO 9355) to Downhill (ISO 5355), SOLESYNC has got you covered, no matter how worn down your boots get.
Ascend confidently on the most challenging terrain with the Tekdapters 3-position PITCH SWITCH riser system.
Field Goal Guide Rails
Each position of the PITCH SWITCH features our unique "Field Goal Guide Rails" designed to guide your boot into place as you step down. This gives you powerful edging capability for tricky terrain.
The upright positions of the PITCHSWITCH feature traction grooves to further grip your boot sole so you can confidently tackle steep traverses and challenging kick turns without slipping.
Neutral Stance Compensation
Just like the beloved DAYMAKERS CLASSIC, the TEKDAPTERS' lowest mode is designed at -2º. This negative angle compensates for the forward ramp built into your ski boots, and provides for an incredibly comfortable upright stance while touring flat terrain, ridge lines, and mellow descents.
The spring loaded cam mechanism inside the PITCHSWITCH ensures precise location of the risers making it incredibly fast and easy to operate with your ski pole.
Hydrophobic materials with polished gloss finishes are utilized to prevent ice buildup in key locations. The open, ported design of the cam mechanism ensures ice and snow can be mechanically ejected each time the elevator is cycled. This ensures trouble free operation in the deepest and most packable snow conditions.
The TEKDAPTERS from DAYMAKER TOURING have been thoughtfully designed and meticulously engineered at every level to be lightweight, dependable, and easy to use for years and years of service.
To achieve the most feature-loaded adapter ever at the lightest weight, every detail of TEKDAPTERS serves function. How did we do it? The simple answer is that from 2020-2022, Daymaker engineers Chris Trunek and Giray Dadali tore a total of 3 Achilles Tendons between the both of them, giving a lot of time behind a computer to make this product.
Modularity and Sustainability
We believe the best form of sustainability is by producing a completely modular system that can be easily worked on by the consumer. Our replacement parts are easily purchased through our website to ensure your adapter can be used for decades to come.

High Strength materials
A chasis built from a blend of Ultra-light Carbon infused Nylon, impact-resistant POM plastic, and high-strength Aluminum alloys.
Simulated cutout patterns
Every piece of this adapter system ran through complex computer simulations and prototype testing for the optimal shape to minimize material thickness.
