Salomon 920 Bindings - Setting DIN for a Lightweight...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So I just got a pair of hardly used Salomon 3V Labs and they came with S920 bindings.

 

I noted (too late) that the bindings have a DIN range of 14-20. (I should have checked this before purchasing) and I only weight 75 Kg (168 lbs), and am 5'11". 

So based on the normal DIN chart for a 317mm boot length, I should be DIN 7-8 for normal skiing, which is what I have on my Recreational skis, and I normally set my DIN to 9-10 on Race skis.

 

Is there any way to get away with that on the 920s ??? - though I would have to have it done with a Huber torque machine....

 

... or should I go in search of some 914s instead???

 

... Anyone got a good set of 914(lab)????

These truly are some "big boy" bindings. These are also some very coveted by the big mountain gang. As far as DIN, you might be able to squeeze out a 13 and maaaybe a 12 DIN, but no way down to a 10. IF you have some lighter springs, you can swap the springs out and while the window will be inaccurate, you could probably get the binding to torque correctly.

Take them over to TGR and offer to trade them for some 912s or 914s. Given the extra value of your 920s I'd ask for shipping to be paid by the other party. You'll have no problem finding takers for this deal.

Phil, Steve,

 

Thank you for the input. I tried messing with the din screws to get a similar release tension to my recreational skis, ut that was  a fail, the bindings were really unstable at that tension.

 

I think I may have found a source of some 914s (attached to a pair of GS skis)...  So if i can swing the deal, then i woudl only need to have Quiver Killers instaled and swap the bindings back and forth.

 

 

Looks like i will be selling a paid of lightly used 920s.

 

being based in the UK, how much of a demand would there be over here, and also stateside?  shoud li post them here, TGR, (would they want international shipping?) elsewhere?

Used 920s easily go for $150 or more depending on condition on TGR. If you could figure shipping from UK and factor it in the price I'm sure you'd find willing buyers.
