Help on where to fix Bindings

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I just bought some new K2 pontoon 2012 skis (I can't wait to use them) with some marker bindings (Baron 13).

However before skiing I have to fix them and I don't want to make any mistake thats why I'm asking you guys,

 

Should I fix my bindings in a central position (in the center of the ski) or should I put the bindings a bit further back?

 

It's my first freeride ski pair so I really need some expert advice,

 

Thanks in advance,

 

have a great day,

 

Dafdyka

I've been skiing for over thirty years and have never had any experience or reason not to trust the marks provided by the manufacturer.  They have hundreds of engineers designing how and where the skis flex.  Their markings are designed to coordinate with these markings.

I couldn't see any markings on the skis when I received them, thats why I made this post,

I checked some pictures of the skis on the Internet and I can't distinguish any. Are you sure they have them on these skis?

Here is a link to a picture of the skis http://www.backcountry.com/k2-pon2oon-ski?avad=5421_f23166e7

Mount them on the line or maybe slightly behind the line. Don't mount in front of the line.

 

Some dude named Shane spent a bunch of time moving the mounting point fore and aft until he settled on where it is now. He sorta knew his stuff.

 

Then go out and rip the $hit out of some big lines. Be sure to claim it for extra GNAR points.

 

Oh, and you might want to read THIS ARTICLE by that dude Shane. It is old now, but most of the stuff still applies. Especially the 'ski on both feet' stuff. Learn to slarve.
