Question about mounting Marker Titanium 12.0 piston bindings on my new 100mm waist skis

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Crossposting from the ski gear discussion thread... 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?

I just mounted some older Marker Titanium 1200's on a pair of Pontoons without the piston plate, but they still had a Marker plate under them. I'm not sure they will mount properly without some sort of plate. There is a piece under the heel cam that would not sit well on the surface of the ski. I bought some 125mm brakes on Ebay and stretched them to 130. You should be able to find 110 brakes there....

 

I usually lave the piston engaged, I can't tell the difference.

I've got a pair of Marker Piston 12.0 bindings.  I got them really cheap.  After skiing them for a while, I realized why.  They seem to pop off at the drop of a hat.  If I were you, I wouldn't spend any more money or time on them.  A Look PX 12 would treat you much better, as would any number of modern bindings, including Marker's "royal" models.
