Bindings recommendations

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

So i bought a pair of kendos (last years) and now have to go shopping for bindings, im looking at the Griffon, any other recommendations? 

Cheers!

Salomon STH 12 Driver is comparable to Griffon, 4 - 12 DIN range. Solid binding.

Get the STH 12 or the Look PX-12.  They are both nice.  Easy.

All the bindings above are fine. I've been putting Griffon demos on everything I have lately.

I like salomon's myself, and only the salomon bindings with the driver toe piece, i have a couple of pairs of sth 16's, one pair of s914s, and one pair of 916's, these are what i have trusted on my skis for 10 plus years, I put 100 plus days a year on my boards and solid ass bindings are just as important as a solid ass ski....

Just don't buy Salomon Z12 Ti's. They break.

I purchased a pair of these for my Mantras so that I would have a light setup. As soon as I took them out of he box, I was sus on them. A bit of googling and my suspicions were confirmed with more than a few stories of failure. I mounted them on my daughters new skis and went with my tried and true tyrolia railflex HD14's. 3 pair of skis, 1 pair of bindings. Good stuff.

Just to add, I value my daughters safety much more than my own but I am much bigger and ski much harder than her. the z12's have been fine for her with no issues to date.

It's not the plastic that breaks--it's the titanium heel plate.  I suppose there are other parts folks have broken but the heel plate that's famous.  Anyone who has these should take off their brakes and look at the heel plates.  When I broke one I got two replacement plates and when I went to replace the non-broken one it was cracked--just hadn't completely failed yet.
