Salomon 997 equipe driver 6-14 DIN worm drive

Salomon 997 Equipe Driver 6-14 DIN worm drive the black and yellow ones, still OK or dust bin?

I am thinking of mounting these on some rock skis. They are no longer indemnified but still in good shape. I mount myself, so don't meed a shop. Also Solly 900s Equipe  6-14 DIN also yellow, in the same boat.  Any opinions?

Assuming they are in good condition I'd ski the 997 Equipe's anytime (and do).

 

This assumes a working understanding of the binding and the inherent risks of course. wink.gif

It seems that the higher end Driver series bindings from Solly can take a beating, but before you make the choice to mount them, give everything a thorough inspection.  Look for cracks in the heel piece housing and the boot cup treadle.  I have seen a few springs shoot out of heel pieces of older Sollies.

That is a huge problem on the lower end bindings but the equipe's have metal parts in all the right places.

It's the plastic garbage that gives up long before it should.......
