Binding Position: Rossi Experience 98

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I just bought these skis and the Axial2 binding, and from what I've read, they like to be skied from 1-2 cm back of the manufacturer's line.  My question: is there any downside to mounting the bindings 1 cm back?  Are they adjustable fore to aft just in case?  I am a larger, more aggressive skier than average.

I am not familiar with that binding but I am one of the posters saying they liked the binding 1.5cm back.  I have the Marker Griffon Schizo binding which makes it easy to do so.

 

When I was experimenting, I started with the mfg mark and wasn't real happy with the skis.  They were difficult to control in the heavy broken snow from an overnight dump.  Then I went 1 cm back and they felt better and started to like them.  Then I went 1.5 cm back and started to get into them for the rest of that first day on them.  I haven't touched the binding setting since and really enjoyed them at Mammoth a couple of weeks back, though I still haven't skied them in very soft snow.  Hoping to in a couple of weeks at Big Sky.

 

Hope this helps.

It does, thanks, Rick.  Might have to join you in MT, they seem to be the only place with any snow this year.

I arrive on the 16th with a large crew from Clevleand.  I will be there for 8 days, skiing 6-7.  Let me know if you can make it up there at the same time and we can rip a few runs together.

Hey flounder i just picked up a pair of rossi experience 98 ski and also have the Axial2 bindings and am in the same predicament you were. Where did you end up mounting yours and are you happy with the position? Any input would help out a lot!!

Mounted them 1 cm back.  I like them a lot.  While I haven't tried a different position, I feel in control no matter how fast I'm going or snow conditions, which is what I was trying for.

Thanks a lot for the reply I think I am going to do the same as well.

If you haven't already purchased your bindings, consider the Schizo bindings from Marker like I did. That way you can play around with position until you find your sweet spot. Everyone has different skiing styles and stances and will benefit from having the mount where it is best for them and not someone else.

FWIW, after initially setting my bindings 1.5 cm back, I have gradually moved them forward to where I am now just under 1 cm back.

Good luck,

Rick G

I've skied these a few different ways, 1cm back is the ticket. Love those Rossi Experience 98's!
