Atomic bindings question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can s/o tell me the difference between the Xcentris binding and the RaceRace binding with the same DIN range? for example RR4.12 vs XC 4.12?
thanks

The only difference I know of is that the Race bindings have more of those "varizone" positions. And also, I think the RaceRace, as opposed to the Race and Xentrix bindings, don't have as much lift built in to the binding. Yes, there's a difference between RaceRace and just plain Race. It's possible I mixed those up, but they do have different amounts of lift.

The differnces between Xentrix and race and race-race binding is the lift. Xentrix bindings have lift so they are generally put on the ski's without the built in lifter plates. Xentrix 4.12 and race-race 4.12 both have the same amount of varizone postions but the race-race as an example has very little lift if any to be mounted on ski's like the 9.20 race ski's which have a plate that is all ready quite high that is part of the ski. So i would use Xentrix bindings on ski's without a lifter plate that is built into the ski and race (some lift) or race-race for ski's with built in plates which allready have alot of lift built into the ski.

Thanks for your posts.
These bindings would be for an Atomic 9.16, which does have a plate. So I'll go with a race or a race/race binding.
Yesterday I rec'd both the Ski and Powder gear guides. Incredible how poorly both guides convey info on bindings--especially Powder, which tries to just skate by with a laundry list of 4 or 5 bullet points (marketing talking points) on a couple bindings from each major maker. There appears to be no original/critical content from the author at all--indeed, an author isn't even listed for the Alpine Binding section "Killer Clamps." Note to Powder: Weak.
Thanks again guys for your help. Epicski forums are still the best gear guides around.
