Appologies if this post appears nieve. I'm just getting back into skiing atfer a 20 year lay off, so I am still trying to catch up on the new technology.
I grew up in England and look a lot a skiing trips to Bulgaria and Scotland growing up. But moving to Louisinana, getting married, having kids and busting up my knees doing martial arts put skiing on hold for a couple of decades.
The kids are old enough to ski now, knees are out of rehab and we are living in Arizona, so I am now getting a second life on the slopes. The first few times back on the slopes I didn't even realise that skis now have sidecut, I didn't remember it being this easy, or this much fun. Nice surprise!
Sorry to ramble, here is the question. Why can't I set my own DIN settings? Every reference I find to DIN settings says they must be done by a certified technician. Knowing what your DIN setting is can be found from a chart, are relatively simple to do yourself and the settings are clearly marked on the bindings. Is there something technicians do that I can't do at home with a screwdriver. Do we really need to find a technician everytime we want to swap equipment with each other?
