What bindings for DPS Wailer 112RP?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Title pretty much sums it up. I'm around 5'8" 170 pounds looking for bindings for 112RP hybrids. I'd describe my skiing style as fast, aggressive and playful. I like pow and trees, but I'll be doing a bit of everything. I'm coming from skiboards and its been over a decade since I've been in releasable bindings, so I have no idea what DIN I should be looking for, or what I should be looking for in a binding in general for that matter (see this thread for more info). I do all my skiing at resorts (99% Tahoe, 1% Mammoth/UT/CO/other), though in the coming seasons I hope to do a bit of backcountry and snowcat skiing. Any thoughts?

For your size, If you like...

 

Marker...Griffon

Look...Pivot 14

Salomon...Sth14

Tyrolia...Mojo15

 

Any will suffice.

Thanks. I notice the widest brakes that come with a lot of bindings are only 110mm, especially with the Markers. Am I wrong thinking these won't fit the 112mm waist of the 112RPs? Can I just buy wider brakes for whatever bindings, or do I need to find bindings that come with wider brakes?

 

Also, what's the difference between normal Marker bindings and schizos? It looks like schizos allow bindings to be easily moved forward and back a bit, but are there any other pros/cons to this system?

110 brakes are fine. 

 

Schizos are the same as the Griffon(/Jester) counterpart accept that you can move it fore and aft on the ski. It will add a bit of weight and not sure if you would even move fore and aft.

I have skied a ton on both marker demo/schizo setups and their alpine fixed toe counterparts.  they weight about 50g per binding more than the alpine, (i.e. .1lbs per foot).  there is no noticeable difference in how they ski.  the toe plate is tight and does not, IMO introduce any additional slop.  the ramp angle is the same.  

 

that said, while it might be neat to slide the bindings around once or twice, if you mount them correct the first time, there will be no need!
