need bindings that fit Volkl Grizzly

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello, I have purchased a brand new pair of Volkl Grizzly for a very good price without the bindings. I am currently looking for bindings that can fit these skis. It says Marker Ipt Motion 14

I am not sure if that is the only model that fits or I can choose other models. Please help.

You should have gotten a binding WITH the ski. These will take either a IPT 12 or 14 Wideride and the ski does not reach it's retailer WITHOUT a binding. You might have gotten such a great deal because the binding was lost or stolen.

They can take a Volkl AC50 binding I believe, but like Philpug said they area a system binding so they should have come with the ski.

Did you get such a killer deal on these skis because they came from a questionable source?

As previously mentioned, these skis were sold as a "system ski" with bindings included. The bindings are NOT available as a separate purchase.

If these were indeed bought from a legitimate ski shop who is a Volkl dealer they should be able to obtain the bindings for you but at what cost? Why did they sell them to you with out the bindings?

My guess is that you bought these skis from some guy in a back alley or off of Craigs List and he asked you "Hey, want to buy this pair of $1500 skis for $100. All they need are a pair of bindings. You should be able to get them anywhere."

If this is the case. Shame on you and you got what you deserve, a worthless pair of skis and a heap of trouble if you try to get bindings from a legitimate Volkl dealer as I am sure if they were stolen from a dealer the serial numbers are being circulated.

Good luck,

Rick G

My dad purchased the ski's from a legitimate liquidation store in toronto, On. He also bought his ski's, boots, and my boots from there. We have realized that it was a mistake as it is so hard to find the bindings and the person who sold them to us should have warned us. That is why I have come to epic ski to seek help in my journey to find bindings.

Have you tried going back to this reputable shop then and ask them how you are suppose to get bindings for the skis they sold you if said bindings are not available directly to the public?

If they are a reputable shop they should be contacting Volkl to help you out. You might even try contacting Volkl yourself. If you do contact Volkl be prepared to provide a reciept for the skis.

Good Luck,

Yeah give Volkl a call, but I'd go talk to the store first.  Have them put it in writing or an email or something that they sold it to you without the bindings and hope Volkl has some extras you can pick up somewhere.  How far out of Toronto are you located?  I might be able to give you the name of a good shop or two that might have a left over binding or something.

I am sorry but when someone claims to have bought a ski at a killer price but without an essential piece included that isn't available separately, I see red flags all over the place. I know of NO REPUTABLE SKI SHOP that would sell a ski without the integrated binding that comes with it. Period end of discussion. There is more to this story.

Not long ago someone posted a similar question from someone with a pair of Volkl's minus integrated bindings that were handed to him out the backdoor from a shop going out of business.

Shady is shady!

Any shop owners or employees care to chime in?

Like I said, Good luck.

It wrankles to hear these stories because it makes it seem as if legitimate sources of close out gear are pricing Volkl too high, when in fact the price is fair. It confuses the entire scale of pricing. even at $100. a bad deal. it's been said before: would you buy a Rolex for $50. ? It's not possible is it?
