Questions regarding my Marker Titanium 12.0 piston bindings and my new 100mm wide skis

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of bindings that still have plenty of life in them, and I'd rather have to buy just a new (and wider) brake than a whole new binding for my new 100mm wide skis. The Marker Titanium 12.0 bindings are piston bindings, meaning their up on riser plates.

 

I've never really appreciated the piston system - I usually leave it turned off. Would I be able to have the bindings mounted without the piston/riser? If not, will I be at a big disadvantage with risers on such a wide ski?

 BUMP if you don't get an answer before this falls off the bottom of the page you might do better by asking in the tuning and maintainence forum insteadsmile.gif

Is there a ski shop in Rifle?  I left Colorado nearly 20 years ago and I know there wasn't one there then.  But, if there is, talk to the tech or talk to a tech at a shop near Beaver Creek or Glenwood Springs.  You could even try contacting Marker by email.  I totally understand not wanting to buy a new set of bindings if you don't need to.  I wish I could re-use a couple sets of Marker bindings but they're no longer indemnified.  Good luck.

If they are screwed onto the piston system you shouldn't have any problems, but I personally don't see why taking them off it.
 

Best thing is to go to your local shop and discuss the options you have, also since you might need wider breaks they can take care of the whole thing for you.
