I've been skiing for about 10 yrs and buying upgraded skis for the first time.
I just bough Salomon 2012s and I'm looking for bindings. I'm probably a low level Advanced skier, and I want to become an expert on the bumps.
My skis are 91mm wide, and I've read that any bindings/brakes that are greater than 15mm wider than the ski width are not advised.
With that said would there be a huge difference between a 100mm or 110mm brake width? There's better deals on the oversized bindings. I'm looking to get Salomon STH Drivers but its been tough to find one's with a max din size of 14 and a 100mm width. I'm about 190lbs and 5'11". Although I may never need the extra DIN, most bindings only go to 12 and I'd just like to have the extra in case my skills really increase over the next 5 years. Am I asking for too much, should I be happy with max DIN 12?
By comparison, my beginner skis were 63mm width with a 5.5 DIN setting, 170mm. Also, they were 100mm brake width.
