Bindings for Rossi S86

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I managed to get a pair on S86 in 178cm (I'm 179cm tall). Question is which binding s to get. Rossi suggests the Freeski2 120 Composite L (I contacted them), but I'm wondering about the FKS 140. Rossi says they will work as well, but they are beefier, and add more side stability.

 

I weigh 170 lbs, and I'm an all-mountain expert, though ski mostly east coast hardpack. This will be a second pair for me, primarily for my trips out west.

 

Any suggestions?

The Marker Griffon with the 90 mm brake would work just fine on those, are designed for wider skis such as the s86.

Aren't the Griffons more for lighter weight skiers?  Wouldn't the Jester be a better choice?

The Griffon is a 12 din binding. Stout enough for the majority of skiers.

I"m 225ish and have been skiing the Griffons.  Really like these bindings. Never released early on me and seem to release perfectly when they need to.  I may not be hitting as big lines as you, but I do have a few pounds on you.  If you're in the 12 DIN range, they're great, if you need more, than go with the Jesters, they're 16 DIN.

I'm certainly in the range of the Griffon (my DIN settings are around 8 - about the middle of the binding's range). I forgot to mention I'm a former high school/college racer (with the emphasis on former), but it should give you an idea of how I ski. I'm primarily on a pair of Fischer Progressors (the first model year - slightly detuned race ski) which I love for the eastern groomers I ski most of the time, but they can be painful elsewhere - hence the S86s.

The s86 will pair up nicely with the Griffon,as mentioned you will be right in the middle of the din chart. Anything else will be overkill.

If you can't find a Griffon though, a nice Look Freeride would work well too.  Griffon should be your first choice though.

Why should a Griffon be first choice? First choice could just as easily be an FKS140/Pivot14, or a Mojo 15, or a Jester, or a Rossi Freeride (which are pretty much the nicest PX variant around - race heel with wormdrive forward pressure adjustment).

 

Not saying the Griffon isn't a good choice, but I don't see any argument for being first choice, especially ahead of a Look/Rossi turntable.

I haven't seen any arguments, just opinions that's all. That is what this forum is all about yes?
